'The View's' Barbara Walters: 'Jenny McCarthy is a life giver'

Zap2it: What do you foresee for "The View" when you retire next year?Barbara Walters: It's very strange, because it's my show, and I created it, but I never moderated it. I always gave it to somebody else because I was very busy doing "20/20," and as a newsmagazine, that does not exist in the same way now.I had already hired Whoopi Goldberg, though, and it's a whole new and wonderful career for her. She moderates it most of the time -- I do it one day a week -- and Whoopi loves to moderate. I don't think she'd give it up.Zap2it: Has Jenny McCarthy brought what you hoped she would when she became one of "The View's" co-hosts at the start of this season?Barbara Walters: Both Jenny and Sherri [Shepherd] are life-givers. They are funny, they are sweet, and they will do anything. I saw this when we were all at the Disneyland Resort recently....
