Barbara Walters has big plans to do nothing on first day of retirement
More specifically, Walters says she won't be sticking with her "The View" schedule. "I'm going to lounge in bed until 3 in the afternoon," she says of her plans for Retirement Day 1 on May 19. She also is planning a trip to Berlin, Germany with a friend.
"I don't know what my life is going to be when it is unscheduled!" says Walters, who has been working at ABC since 1976. "I'll have to get used to it, but it sounds like a very good idea."
