Barbara Walters
was taken to a hospital Saturday night after cutting her head following a fall, but is alert and doing well.

Walters was visiting the British Ambassador’s residence when she fell on a stair and cut her forehead.

Jeffrey W. Schneider, senior vice president of ABC News, tells POLITICO, "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."

There's a problem here    

A little bonobo on her head and she gets an overnighter? I call bullishly. She was probably drunk or took too much ambien and suffered a concussion.

Get well soon. My respect for her went up big time when I found out she liked dark meat.

Barbara needs to RETIRE in my opinion, she has done everything possible career wise, and needs to sit down and enjoy the rest of her life now. If you ever watch her on "The View" the Camera "always" cuts away from her walking to sit at the table with the other co-host.

PRIM and PROPER? You've got to be kidding..... BARBARA WALTERS.messed with a BLACK man and IF she was "proud" of it, she didn't say it at the time!
--------------------------------------------------------------------
BARBARA WALTERS is a shark that smiles the "shark smile" and BITES into the vein in the heart.
--------------------------------------------------------------------
BARBARA WALTERS "quick (not so quick) step when she does her 83 year OLD-LADY walk on the set of The View speaks volumes...RETIRE....you are decades past your PRIME and take DAVID LETTERMAN with you!
------------------------------------------------------------------
BARBARA WALTERS' hairdresser has worked all the "magic" he can with the 10 hairs on top of her 83 YEAR OLD head.
-------------------------------------------------------------------
The lighting staff on The View worked their "magic" and skyrocketed the ELECTRIC BILL just lighting up BARBARA WALTERS 83 YEAR OLD FACE.....all that did was have MISS LISP buy into that FALSE image.
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Let BARBARA WALTERS CROSS TALK in her own apartment and save the viewers the aggravation of the DAILY DOSE of CROSS TALK - how rude!
------------------------------------------------------------------
BARBARA WALTERS should have taken note when REGIS PHILBIN stayed TOO LONG AT THE PARTY! Guess you CAN'T teach an old dog new tricks.

Shame on all you nasty people,being cruel to an elderly person! Some day, every single one of you will be old ,and nobody will want you or help you,because of your weak and hateful character. Remember these words, your time is coming.
