The grande dame of daytime TV is taking on The Bachelor.

PREVIOUS: Is Barbara Walters Retiring!?

Barbara Walters hadn't seen the reality show until this week. And the 82-year-old told the ladies on The View Thursday,"I finally saw the show -- it's an ABC show, they may fire me -- It's a stupid show!"

Then she slammed Ben Flajnik, saying, "All these gorgeous women going after this guy -- I'm going to say it -- who is less than gorgeous."

Barbara then asked, "What am I missing."

Co-host Whoppi Goldberg responded with, "These women are as creepy as the guy."

And, with that the rest of the ladies changed the subject.

      The Bachelor is a stupid show agreed. But the View? Really Barbara. It’s just another version side dish on the Trash T.V. menu.

      Remember when you used to be a legit journalist?

      …the science behind the art…

      If men and women have to come on television to try to get one man or one woman’s attention, there has to be something wrong with them.  Why can’t they find a companion on their own?
