NEW YORK -- Barbara Walters says the paparazzi were lying in wait, but she’s not saying anything about her future employment.

Walters returned to “The View” on Monday, after reports circulated widely the previous Friday that she would be retiring from television in May 2014. The television news legend is 83 years old.

She said photographers were waiting for her as she went to work on Monday, expecting she would discuss her future plans on the air. Instead, Walters had nothing to say about whether or not the stories were true, saying “I have no announcement to make.”

Walters created “The View” in 1997.
