Julie Chen on Barbara Walters and The View

The all-female talk show The View has featured a rotating cast of co-hosts and been the subject of drama, gossip, and speculation since its launch in 1997. So when Julie Chen, who happens to be a moderator on another all-female talk show, The Talk, appeared on Watch What Happens Live Tuesday, she was asked about reports that the show's creator and former panelist, Barbara Walters, isn't happy with its current format.

How to Watch

Tune in to WWHL on Bravo Sunday through Thursday and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo App.

"I believed every word I read in Page Six, I did. And there were contradicting sides and I believed all of it was true 'cause there's a little bit of truth to everything," Julie said. "Someone said she calls the control room and we take her notes seriously. And I was like, 'She calls the control room [and] I don't know if you take her notes that seriously. You probably make her feel like you're taking it that seriously, but she doesn't feel that way.' And I do think that Barbara Walters is probably like, 'This amazing show I created is now just kind of withering away with a revolving door of hosts that people can't keep straight.' I mean, I should know all the names of the hosts and I don't 'cause it changes so often."

Speaking of which, it was recently confirmed that Candace Cameron Bure is leaving the show, as well as Raven-Symone. The only current host who appeared on the show during its inception who still sits on the panel is Joy Behar.
