With all the Rosie O’Donnell-related tumult, it’s understandable that producers at “The View” are looking for something to bolster support of the troubled talk show. Well, they’re not going to find it in Barbara Walters. “They’ve talked about bringing Barbara back for a three-week special in the summer to boost ratings,” a source tells Radar Online. “But she doesn’t want to touch the show. She thinks it’s toxic and doesn’t need the stress.” And, I mean, that’s coming from the woman who started the whole thing, so that’s saying something.
