The ladies welcomed back Barbara Walters this morning for the 14th season premiere of The View!
For the first time in View history, David Letterman stopped by! David has always held a special place in Barbara’s heart -- and now he does more than ever, being that he went through heart surgery over 10 years ago himself. David rarely makes any TV appearances (outside of his own show), but he came by today to talk about when he had quintuple bypass surgery ... and how he's changed his daily lifestyle since. Later, David switched gears and spoke about the late night war between Jay Leno and Conan O’Brien, chatting about which "side" he was on. The Late Night Show with David Letterman is in its 18th season; Dave talked about his success, and whether or not he will re-sign in two years after his contract with CBS is up.
To close the show, the co-hosts had a surprise for Barbara that she will probably never forget; longtime friend of The View Mario Cantone sang and danced a very special ditty called "Welcome Back Barbara!"
