NEW YORK (January 28, 2013)—TV veteran Barbara Walters has been hospitalized for more than a week after taking a fall, and doctors wouldn't release her because she was running a temperature, and now they know why.
Walters, 83, has the chicken pox.
Whoopi Goldberg delivered the news Monday on "The View," the daytime talk show Walters started and delivered an ultimatum to Walters, "No scratching."
Walters was transferred to a New York hospital after being in Washington.
She fell on Jan. 19 and hit her head, and was hospitalized for observation.
