It's been reported that TV personality Barbara Walters is hospitalized. The 83-year-old known most recently for co-hosting "The View," suffered an injury after falling at the British Ambassador's residence.
It was reported at US Weekly via Yahoo! on Jan. 20 that Walters fell on Saturday at the home of the British Ambassador. In the process of falling on a stair, she reportedly cut her forehead, requiring the hospitalization. However, as of this report, it appears she's doing well despite the cut.
ABC News Senior Vice President Jeffrey W. Schneider said of the situation:
"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."
Barbara Walters was originally intending to cover the second Inauguration of President Barack Obama in Washington, DC. However, due to the recent situation with her being hospitalized, she will reportedly not be part of ABC's coverage.
Walters is seen weekday mornings on "The View" in Roanoke via Cox Cable channel 13 for ABC affiliate WSET 13.
