After a health scare two weeks ago, more information surfaced about Barbara Walters condition on Monday (January 28).
According to reports, the 83-year-old talk show host was diagnosed with a severe case of the chicken pox.
On Monday’s episode of “The View,” Walters’ co-host Whoopi Goldberg revealed, “You all know that she fell and cut her head 10 days ago, and then was running a temperature, but it turns out it is all the result of a delayed childhood. Barbara 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,” Goldberg added, “And we’re telling you, Barbara, no scratching.”
Barbara was first hospitalized on January 19 after a fall in Washington D.C. She was recently transferred to a New York City hospital in which she is currently located.
