Barbara Walters worried about retiring

May 16 2014, 5:22pm CDT | by

Barbara Walters is worried she won't enjoy her retirement.

The veteran American broadcaster, who co-hosted her final episode of 'The View' today (05.16.14), plans to take a break over the summer but she is already thinking about new TV projects.

The 84-year-old star told UsMagazine.com: "Monday comes, and I'm going to sleep late! A little later on I'm going to go to Europe for a few days with a friend because I don't want to sit home and think about, 'What do I do today? Why aren't I on the air?' So I'm going to go away for a bit. And then it's the summer!"

While she wants to slow down, the presenter hopes to interview more high profile people in the future.

She said: "I would love to do an interview with the Pope. I do my homework, so I have a certain sense of authority. Sometimes I know more about the person than they do themselves. I'm very rarely nervous. When I finish an interview, I do 'shoulda, coulda, woulda,' and it drives me crazy, but when I'm actually doing the interview, I'm fine in authority and that's a good feeling."

Barbara was shocked that so many of her friends, including Oprah Winfrey and Hillary Clinton, showed up to surprise her on her final episode of the show.

She said: "I didn't expect what was happening today and when I looked up and there were all of these women, most of whom I recognized who are in this business. They all took time out of their day and all had to line up backstage. I can't imagine a better tribute than that."
