Some voices said that even Barbara was thinking of leaving.
None of that is true.
“There is a particularly false story that is getting picked up about Elisabeth’s alleged departure, saying we don’t approve of her conservative views. The truth is we love Elisabeth. I like her personally, and she’s a wonderful person,” Walters says.
“But beyond that, we value and appreciate her point of view. It’s important to us, because Elisabeth helps give the show perspective and balance. And believe me, she’s tougher than she looks. We have no plans for Elisabeth to leave this show,” she adds.
