Walters attended a New Years party and exchanged a hug and kiss from former male friend, Frank Langella, who soon would come down with a case of shingles.
Langella had a romantic relationship with The View co-host, Whoopi Goldberg, from 1996 to 2001. Is this awkward or not?
Frank A. Langella, Jr., 75, is an American stage and film actor. He has won a Tony Award for Best Leading actor in a Play for his performance as Richard Nixon in a play Frost/Nixon. – Wikipedia
Langella is an Italian American and was married almost 20 years to Ruth Weil before his relationship with Goldberg.
Walters, 83, was gone 6 weeks from the show, and returned on Monday. We are glad to see her back. Walters is still very feisty, she was missed during her recovery period.
