Barbara Walters was welcomed to her last episode of The View as co-host with a standing ovation, but the show quickly kicked into high-gear with the arrival of the first of many surprise guests: Hillary Clinton.

Vicki Lawrence will make a rare TV appearance as her old Carol Burnett Show/Mama's Family character, Thelma Harper, on Logo's RuPaul's All Stars Drag Race this season, which begins October 22.
"RuPaul knew details of the Burnett Show that even surprised me," says Lawrence, (here pictured with the out-of-drag host). "He's a real aficionado of the show."
