2022 has come to an astonishing end.
Barbara Walters Joins A Long List Of Celebs Who Passed Away In 2022
But, the passing of Barbara Walters on January 30, 2022, is rocking the entire internet. She was 93-years-old.
Not only that, but Walters passed away exactly one year and one day before the anniversary of Betty White’s death.
You’ll recall, White died on January 31, 2021, just 18 days before her 100th birthday.
Per the journalists’ representative, Cindi Berger, “Barbara Walters passed away peacefully in her home surrounded by loved ones. She lived her life with no regrets. She was a trailblazer not only for female journalists but for all women.”
Many celebrities, including her ‘View’ co-hosts, have paid tribute to Walters over the last 24-hours.

“The end of 2021 was the death of Betty White. Now, the end of 2022 is Barbara Walters. Iconic women 💔,” a CNN journalist tweeted.
Twitter Is Reeling From Walter’s Death & White’s “Deathiversary”
One person noticed the trend of iconic women ending the year by going to Heaven.
“I’m noticing a trend now that iconic old women seem to find their way to Heaven at this time of year. Last year it was Betty White. Now Barbara Walters. 😢.”
“Well, we lost Betty White at the end of last year and now another trailblazing female tv icon at the end of this year 💔 Rest In Peace, Barbara Walters. There truly will never be another you,” wrote another.
One fan simply called their passings one year apart “some bulls**t.”
Earlier this year, Whites age agent revealed the veteran actress died of “natural causes.”
“Betty died peacefully in her sleep at her home,” the agent, Jeff Witjas, who was also White’s close friend, said in a statement to People.
Witjas also made it known that White getting the COVID-19 booster shot had NOTHING to do with her death.
There was a false report going around that White received the booster shot on December 28, just three days before she was reported dead.
“People are saying her death was related to getting a booster shot three days earlier, but that is not true. She died of natural causes,” he told the magazine. “Her death should not be politicized — that is not the life she lived.”
