Vieira To ‘Today:’ “Losing A Sister”

By Brian 

Meredith Vieira fought back tears while announcing her departure from The View on Thursday morning. “I believe in growth, but right now I’m feeling terrific growing pains,” she said.

The AP quotes Barbara Walters: “This is a very sad day for us but a very happy days I know this is a wonderful new chapter for you.”

Joy Behar said she felt miserable. “I feel as though I’m losing a sister,” she said.

(Yesterday on Today, Ann Curry said she felt like her sister “was going off to college.”)
