Slacker! Kidding. You can't say she hasn't earned it, but if Barbara Walters does retire next year, will there be anyone left to view on The View?

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Barbara plans to retire in May 2014. She'll stay on The View — which she co-created — through next season, sources told THR, to help the show transition through the exits of Joy Behar and Elisabeth Hasselback.

Barbara is expected to officially announce her retirement soon.
