According to new reports, Barbara Walters said at a party for her retirement from journalism that she isn’t ready to say goodbye for good.
“Who knows what the future brings?” the news legend asked in her speech.
“Maybe instead of goodbye I should say à bientôt – which in French means <<see you later>>.”
Barbara Walters, 84, spoke at an ABC News party celebrating her six decades in journalism, which included serving as the first woman to anchor a nightly news broadcast.
She said that her first night on the air was a mess. But she added that if she paved the way for other women, she was grateful.
Barbara Walters noted that she had interviewed every president and first lady from Richard and Pat Nixon to Barack and Michelle Obama.
The party, at the Four Seasons restaurant, found celebrities from Woody Allen to Joan Rivers to Michael Douglass milling with news luminaries like Ben Sherwood, the ABC News president.
Barbara Walters joked that she would finally have time to get Botox – and that she would no longer need it, now that is no longer on TV.
