It's only been two weeks since Barbara Walters retired from The View, but the 84-year-old continues to be a constant fixture at industry events, making us question whether she actually has retirement plans that don't include benefits and dinners!
"It's been one day!" Barbara joked to Closer when asked about her freed-up schedule. "Do you think the whole world changed because I’m not doing The View for one day? I don’t think so."
But despite what it may look like, the legendary journalist does have plans to travel once things die down.
"Oh, I’m going to climb a mountain, I’m going to fly a plane, I’m going to swim the ocean," Barbara excitedly told Closer at the Sesame Workshop's 12th Annual Benefit Gala. But most importantly? "I’m going to sleep late!"
In addition to her many post-retirement appearances, the pioneer recently donated her archives (including papers, recordings and photographs from her career) to Sarah Lawrence College, her alma mater.
She credits the school for making her the renowned interviewer she is today, calling it a "college where I was not afraid to ask questions."
