'Baba Wawa' Appears On 'SNL' To Reflect On Her Career: Video

Screen Shot 2014-05-11 at 8.09.22 AM

Barbara Walters stopped by Saturday Night Live's Weekend Update, where anchor Cecily Strong introduced a montage clip of past cast members lampooning the legendary newswoman. 

A good-natured Walters responded: "What an honor it was to see my groundbreaking career in journalism be reduced to a cartoon character with a ridiculous voice."

Watch Walters' appearance, in which she also pokes fun at her "Baba Wawa" nickname (it originated in an SNL skit with Gilda Radner in the 1970s), AFTER THE JUMP.

  3. Glad to see she can bury the hatchet and have a little fun with herself. Not funny but hey, at least she tried.

  4. Good natured?

    Do you realize how long Barbara Walters held a grudge against Gilda Radner?

  5. Oh, so what she was doing was "journalism?" I never got that. I thought it was the equivalent of People magazine for tv.

  7. I agree with Jerry.....Barbara was so bitter about Gilda for so long, I'd hardly call her 'good natured'. However it's cool she finally reached the point where she could have some fun.
