Host Sherri Shepherd worked closely with Barbara Walters on "The View" and says even though she was tough, she's the reason she has her own show now.
"Any female journalist—or any journalist—but specifically women that we see now on the air have to credit Barbara Walters. To leave a legacy behind the way Barbara did, I am in awe,” says Sherri. “And now I see why she was so tough on me. I tell everybody for the first three years, I cried every day. She would be so tough on me. But now I completely understand it, and the reason why I have my talk show is because Barbara prepared me for it.”
