Barbara Walters to Have Heart Surgery
11:34 am, May 10th, 2010BREAKING!
Barbara Walters will have heart surgery this week.
The TV icon made the announcement during this morning’s taping of “The View,” opening the show with her personal news.
“Later this week, I’m going to have surgery to replace one faulty heart valve,” Walters told her co-hosts and studio audience.
The problem was discovered some time ago during an echocardiogram, but Walters decided to wait until summer to have the procedure, which requires between a month and three months of recovery.
She said she intends to come “roaring back in September.”
