Did Barbara blow off the Chenbot?!

While talking up her daytime show’s week-long trip to New York, CBS’s Julie Chen gave David Letterman the 411 on an alleged “snub” by her idol, ABC News vet Barbara Walters.

The “Big Brother” and “Talk” host revealed on “The Late Show” that she invited “The View” co-host to appear on “The Talk” as a guest while they were filming in NYC.

Chen was disappointed when Walters declined the invitation. “She’s my Johnny Carson,” Chen said to the late-night host, adding, “I get it, she’s busy.”

But then she revealed that Walters ran into Chen’s husband, CBS President Les Moonves, and revealed the real reason why she wouldn’t appear on the rival daytime show.
