LOS ANGELES – Talk about odd bedfellows. Barbara Walters was honored Thursday with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The TV newswoman's star on the sidewalk in front of the Kodak Theatre is between those for Ryan Seacrest and Destiny's Child.
"This strange alignment makes me hip and hot," Walters quipped during a ceremony attended by her "The View" co-hosts Joy Behar and Elizabeth Hasselbeck. Other well-wishers included Police Chief William Bratton, Walt Disney Co. Chief Executive Bob Iger, and Kathy and Nicky Hilton.
The ceremony came a day before the Daytime Emmys, in which Walters is nominated as both a host and producer of "The View."
