Barbara Walters, hospitalised after fall, recovering from chicken pox
NEW YORK (REUTERS) - Celebrity newsman Barbara Walters, who was hospitalised earlier this month after falling and injuring her head, is recovering from chicken pox, her co-host Whoopi Goldberg said on Monday on The View talk show.
Goldberg said Walters, 83, who is in a New York hospital, has been told to rest and is not receiving visitors.
"You all know that she fell and cut her head 10 days ago and then was running a temperature," Goldberg said on the show.
"But it turns out it is all the result of a delayed childhood. Barbara has the chicken pox," Goldberg adding, saying Walters had never had the illness as a child.
