Barbara Walters’ Last Day on The View: May 16

Barbara Walters’ Last Day on The View: May 16

4ee4ZNV 000103 Barbara Walters’ Last Day on The View: May 16BARBARA Walters is making her retirement plans known!

The TV titan has set the date to make her final appearance on The View.

Walters — who plans to retire later this Spring — has said May 16 is the “drop dead” date for her AM sign-off.

Walters will be the subject of a two hour news special produced by ABC that will chronicle her life in front of the camera. It will air that same night, from 9-11 p.m. ET.

“This was the right time,” Walters, 84, told AARP Magazine.

“The kinds of interviews I did all these years, nobody wants them anymore. You have three minutes of a morning show. That’s different from before.”

Joining the network in 1976 as the first female news anchor was not easy.

“When I became the first woman co-anchor of a network news program, I was vilified. That did hurt me,” she tells AARP.

“I thought my career was over. No one wanted a woman, and they certainly didn’t seem to want me, and I had a co-host [Harry Reasoner] who really didn’t want me. What saved me was that Roone Arledge, who was president of ABC News, felt I had value.”

Walters will continue to executive produce The View and will contribute to ABC News “as news warrants,” the network said.

Emily Maynard Competes with Daughter Over Where to Eat on Mother’s Day

05/12/2013 at 05:15 PM EDT

Emily Maynard calls Mother’s Day a “really special day,” but that doesn’t mean she’s the one getting totally spoiled.

The single mom, 27, who was previously engaged Jef Holm, hopes her daughter doesn’t win her usual battle over where to dine on Maynard’s special day.

“It’s hopefully a day that we’ll get to go to my favorite restaurant instead of Ricki’s, like usual,” the former Bachelorette told PEOPLE on Thursday with a laugh. “I’m just hoping for Mother’s Day, we get to go somewhere that has real silverware, real napkins, and I’ll be happy.”

Of her young daughter’s favorite eatery, Maynard explains, “There is a place in Charlotte, [N.C.,] called Nothing But Noodles. It’s Ricki’s favorite restaurant. She would eat there for breakfast, lunch and dinner if I let her. It’s really just a bowl of noodles with butter and cheese; and whenever I make it at home, it’s never as good and she doesn’t eat any of it.”

Restaurant choices aside, the former reality starlet describes a typical mom’s day as one that “usually involves church, then lunch with our family. My mother-in-law is really sweet. She always takes Ricki out and helps her pick out a present for me. Ricki usually makes me something.”

And now that her TV days are behind her – at least for now – things for Maynard have reverted to the way they were before fame.

“Life for me after The Bachelorette went back to normal, painfully quickly almost,” she says. “Whenever you have a seven-year-old, she doesn’t care. If you’re on TV or not on TV, life goes back to normal. I’m just doing carpool, cleaning out litter boxes, doing laundry – you know, everyday, normal stuff.”

Sounds like Katy Perry and John Mayer are taking things to the next level.

The couple, after dating for a few months, are spending Christmas together, PEOPLE has learned.

And guess what: The pop star, 28, is bringing Mayer, 35, home to her parents, whom he has already met, according to a source.

“They’re happy together and with her family for the holidays,” says the source. “John really likes getting to know Katy’s family better.”

The couple are also getting serious about their relationship. “They’ve spent a lot of time together and really enjoy each other’s company,” says the source. “John is entirely focused on Katy.”

As for recent tabloid reports that Mayer has been flirting with other women and that Perry discovered text messages on his phone, the source says, “That is absolutely not true. John would never do that to her, and Katy really trusts John.”

For Perry, the holidays this year are dramatically different from 2011′s. Last December, her then-husband Russell Brand filed for divorce. Their marriage officially ended this past July.
