Yesterday I felt lost watching the Inauguration on TV without Barbara Walters commenting on ABC. Thankfully Diane Sawyer acknowledged Barbara’s absence on air during the telecast. So I guess you can say, “I’m a Barbara Walters fan.” She’s been waking me up in the morning almost my entire life. Plus, how would I know who is or isn’t ‘fascinating’ without her help?!
So how is my favorite News Diva?
Whoopi Goldberg updated viewers on Barbara Walters‘ condition saying that the ABC News veteran is still in the hospital with a fever but making progress towards recovery.
Walters was admitted to the hospital after she fell on a stair at the British ambassador’s residence in Washington, D.C. and cut her forehead on Saturday. On Tuesday’s “The View,” Goldberg read a statement from Walters, who said:
“First and foremost, I want to thank all the people who have called, written and been concerned about me. I am most appreciative. I’m 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.”
OABC News’ Jeffrey Schneider said that Walters was “alert” and was in the hospital for observation “out of an abundance of caution.”
Walters’ last health scare was when she underwent heart surgery to replace a faulty valve in 2010.
