NEW YORK (AP) - Barbara Walters has the chicken pox.
The television veteran has been hospitalized for more than a week after taking a fall. Doctors wouldn’t release her because she was running a temperature, and now they know why: The 83-year-old news veteran has a disease many people deal with when they are children.
Whoopi Goldberg delivered the news Monday on “The View,” the daytime talk show Walters started. Goldberg delivered an ultimatum to Walters: “No scratching.”
Walters has been transferred to a New York hospital after being in Washington. She fell on Jan. 19 and hit her head, and was hospitalized for observation.
