NEW YORK, Dec. 14 (UPI) -- The Talk host Julie Chen is weighing in on rival talk show The View.
"I believed every word I read in Page Six," Chen told host Andy Cohen. "There were contradicting sides and I believed all of it was true, because there's a little bit of truth to everything."
"I do think Barbara Walters is probably like, 'This amazing show I created is now just kind of withering away with a revolving door of hosts that people can't keep straight.' I mean, I should know all the names of the hosts, and I don't because it changes so often," she said.
Page Six had reported Saturday that Walters fears The View "will be remembered for its petty backstage bickering and revolving door of talent." The 87-year-old broadcast journalist retired from the show in 2014.
"She feels they've ruined the franchise that she and Bill Geddie built," a source said of Walters and series co-creator Bill Geddie.
"Instead of focusing on smart, educated women with strong talent, they cast uninformed child actors on the show. The legacy has been compromised because of poor casting and bad leadership under ABC News, the insider added.
Rosie O'Donnell, Rosie Perez and Nicole Wallace are among the hosts who have come and gone on The View since Walters' departure. Raven-Symone revealed in October that she's leaving the show to focus on That's So Raven 2, while Candace Cameron Bure announced her departure last week.
"It wasn't an easy decision, but before I started The View I had already had my commitments to Fuller House and my work with the Hallmark Channel," Bure explained.
Chen has hosted The Talk on CBS since its premiere in 2010. She previously hosted CBS Morning News, CBS This Morning, The Early Show and Big Brother.
