Barbara Walters Hospitalized After Head Injury

Truth rating: 10

By Michael Lewittes


Barbara Walters is in the hospital after having sustained a head injury.

On Saturday, the 83-year-old news veteran was visiting the Washington, D.C. home of the British Ambassador when she fell on a stair and cut open her forehead.

An ABC rep tells Gossip Cop, “Out of an abundance of caution, she 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.”

Back in 2010, Walters had surgery to replace a faulty heart valve.

Gossip Cop wishes Walters a speedy recovery.
