The first lady of network news is leaving “The View”, the show she created and has hosted ever since, after today’s episode. People.com reports gathering at the Four Seasons in New York City on Wednesday evening were Walters’s co-hosts past Meredith Vieira, Joy Behar, Lisa Ling, Star Jones and Debbie Matenopoulos, and present, Whoopi Goldberg, Jenny McCarthy and Sherri Shepherd, as well as a bevy of other stars.
