Barbara Walters

Don't worry, she's likely to be back on The View in no time. Media icon Barbara Walters has been hospitalized after she fell on a flight of stairs and cut her head late Saturday night. Walters, 83, was visiting a British ambassador's home in Washington DC ahead of the president's inauguration when she fell. ABC released a statement saying Walters “went to the hospital to have her cut tended to, have a full examination and remains there for observation. Barbara is alert (and telling everyone what to do), which we all take as a very positive sign.”
