Barbara Walters Sends Health Update From Home


Airdate: 02/06/2013

Barbara Walters is speaking out about her medical crisis.

The 83-year-old TV legend called into The View Wednesday from her New York City apartment, where she's been recuperating from the chicken pox and a concussion.

"Hello my darlings. I miss you! I'm just sort of weak and tired. I talk back to you. I complain to you. I join the hot topics. I do everything," said Walters.

Walters gave details for the first time of how she contracted chicken pox, reportedly from a guest at a New Year's Eve dinner party in Florida.

"What happened was that I had a temperature and the chicken pox and didn't know it. And so when I was in Washington for the inauguration weekend, I fainted and I hit my head and had six stitches," said Walters.

When a photographer caught up with her last week, she was steady on her feet after visiting her doctor. But she told her co-hosts that she won't be well enough to return to work for at least three weeks.
