About

This clip is from Barbara Walters' retirement and farewell party on "The View." I know it’s cheesy, but my favorite thing about Barbara Walters is how classy and focused she was on just being Barbara Walters even when the whole world (from "Saturday Night Live" to her co-anchor Harry Reasoner) was making fun of her! She was just like, "I’m doing my thing, guys. I'm working." 50 years later (50!!!), she’s still doing great work. I wasn't even that huge of a fan before seeing this, but man — I get it now!

Also, I don't think I'll ever watch "Anchorman" in the same way again.

Love the story?
