Fond Farewell: Barbara Walters Plans Her Own Funeral

Fading Barbara Walters is writing, editing and producing her final show — her own funeral! has learned the deteriorating 88-year-old news legend is desperately trying to beat the clock as she plans every detail of her final goodbye.

“Barbara is a total control freak so it should be no surprise that she’s producing her funeral,” a source said.

“She got the idea to call it her ‘Exit Plan’ from her late friend, writer Nora Ephron. Every single detail has been spelled out — from the flowers to the venue to the guests and even who she wants to sing.”

“Plus, there will be a video package starring her favorite person — Barbara herself!” the source added.

Another insider speculated the video montage would include clips from Walters’ most famous TV interviews, like her last tête-à-tête with Cuban dictator Fidel Castro and asking Monica Lewinsky, “What will you tell your children, when you have them?”

Walters — who created and co-hosted The View until she retired in 2014 — has not been seen in public since July 2016.
