Barbara Walters is done watching The View!

RadarOnline.com has learned that the founder and original host of the show is disappointed by how much it has changed since her retirement — so much so that she doesn’t even bother to turn on the TV to watch it anymore!

“Barbara never once missed an episode, even when she was traveling she would make sure the program was taped and she would review it,” a source told Straight Shuter. “The content and the tone of the show was everything to Barbara. She saw it as her legacy, and no detail was too small for her to obsess about. But now, she doesn’t even watch the show!”

The insider claimed Walters, 88, believes “it’s too painful to see how much the show has changed,” and how “nasty” the show has gotten.

“Watching the ladies fighting every day does not interest her. It has become so mean that it’s hard to remember a time when the hosts could disagree but still be nice,” the source added.

Amid the rumors, a close friend of Walters claimed the star does try to watch the show when she can, but maybe not as much as she once did.
