Returning to her morning talk show, The View, on Tuesday, co-host and journalist Barbara Walters talked about the wedding she attended over the weekend -- the nuptials of Sir Paul McCartney and Nancy Shevell. According to Ms. Walters, Paul McCartney made a toast to his late songwriting partner, John Lennon, at the wedding reception.

Ms. Walters told details about the wedding as well as the reception. As a cousin of  Nancy Shevell, she was one of the few people invited.
