The inaugural events have come and gone, and poor Barbara Walters missed covering them, spending time in a hospital, instead. Unfortunately, after a hard fall over the weekend, Walters is still spending time at a local Washington, D.C. hospital. Luckily, the 83-year-old journalist says she is feeling a bit better and hopes to leave the hospital soon.
During an episode of The View, Walters sent in a note that discussed her current condition. According to notes taken by the The Orlando Sentinal, Walters has a fever and doctors won’t release her until that fever has subsided.
“I am running a low-grade fever, and the doctors are keeping me in the hospital until my temperature is normal. I’m pleased to say that it is going in the right direction and I will be home soon.”
Additionally, the ladies on The View cleared up a few specifics about the famous journalist’s injury. We’ve known for a while that Walters cut herself after a fall on a stair at a party on Saturday, but The View’s Whoopi Goldberg clarified matters further, stating that Walters “cut her temple” after simply missing a step. So, now that fans know it was a simple, silly accident and she didn’t crack open her whole head or hurt herself seriously, The View audiences can breathe a sigh of relief. The feisty veteran talk show host will likely return to work soon.
