Despite retiring from broadcasting and claiming she was done with her annual "Most Fascinating People" special, Barbara Walters will once again return to our screens this year with her round-up of interesting celebs.
ABC has revealed that Babs will be back to host "The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2014," set to air on the network on December 14. Despite retiring from "The View" in May, following more than 50 years of broadcasting, Walters has continued to pop up on the network, interviewing the father of Santa Barbara shooter Elliot Rodger in June, and appearing on the season premiere of "The View" last month.
It was no doubt Walters's familiar presence that prompted ABC to coax her out of retirement for the "Fascinating" special, which the network has revealed will include Oprah Winfrey, Neil Patrick Harris, Chelsea Handler, and Scarlett Johansson, among others.
"I was absolutely delighted when ABC approached me to do another year of '10 Most Fascinating People'," Walters said in a statement. "I know we said last year was our last, but there are just too many fascinating people out there... and you never pass up the opportunity to interview Oprah, Neil, Chelsea, or Scarlett."
The additional names on the "Fascinating" list will be revealed at a later date. The 2014 special will air on December 14 at 9 p.m. on ABC.
