Barbara Walters Has the Chicken Pox

Barbara Walters has seen it all in her career, except for one thing: Chicken Pox. The 83-year-old news legend announced she’s officially suffering from a case of the scratchies roughly 75 years after most people catch the viral infection.  Walters, who was already recovering from a head injury she suffered during Inauguration weekend was obviously absent from “The View” this morning so Whoopi broke the news.

Walters has been encouraged not to leave her bed and certainly not to scratch herself.   Odd because those are doctors orders when you are 13.  I can’t imagine being 83 and having that desire to itch yourself.  We hope that Barbara is back in good form and hitting the View in no time at all.

Rest well!
