It’s been three weeks since ABC’s Barbara Walters huge goodbye on The View. Even Oprah showed up along with every major newswoman in the U.S. So many air kisses. So little time.

Except there’s plenty of time and now Walters is already back, prepping to interview the father of the deranged boy, Elliot Rodgers who recently shot up a small California beach town. As it happened, Peter Rodger, a film director who worked on The Hunger Games, handpicked Walters for the job.

According to the AP, she was vacationing in Berlin to avoid getting depressed when she agreed to the interview.

The prime-time special will air in the next few weeks.
