After lots of scratching and relaxing, ABC’s Barbara Walters returned to The View on Monday following a two month medical leave.
The legendary newswoman says she is healthy and that doctors have given her the all clear after suffering a concussion and a severe bout with chicken pox.
For the first time, Barbara, 83, revealed that she contracted the itchy illness at a New Years party from a very ‘well known actor’, whom she would not name. The actor, she says, did not realize that he was coming down with a contagious case of shingles!
Barbara thanked viewers along with a laundry list of celebrities and politicians for their well wishes, and she insisted that she is now doing fine.
