Itís been over a week since Barbara Walters was hospitalized after a misstep and itís been nearly a week since the woman sent a message to her beloved co-hosts and audiences who watch The View, stating she hoped to return to work soon. Unfortunately, thatís looking a little less likely than it may have looked a few days ago, since the 83-year-old has now contracted the chicken pox.

Since fans have been getting updates during The View, there should really be no surprise that the chicken pox news broke via the outlet. According to The Washington Post, co-host Whoopi Goldberg once more was tasked with updating audiences on Walterís condition, calling Walterís new chicken pox predicament ďdelayed childhoodĒ and explaining a little bit about her hospital circumstances
ďBarbara has the chicken pox. She'd never had it as a child. So now she's been told to rest, she's not allowed any visitors ó and we're telling you, Barbara, no scratching!"

The famous journalist was initially hospitalized after tripping on a step and falling at an ambassador's home in Washington, D.C. 10 days ago. A low-grade fever made her release from the hospital impossible; however, Walters was moved to a New York hospital at some point. Hopefully, the chicken pox wonít take too huge of a toll on Walterís healthóalthough it is more of a problematic disease in adults than childrenóand the career journalist will be able to return to her daytime TV gig soon.
