ABC News' Barbara Walters hospitalized after fall at inauguration party
Fox News ^

Veteran ABC newswoman Barbara Walters has fallen at an inauguration party at an ambassador's home in Washington and has been hospitalized. Walters, 83, fell Saturday night on a step at the residence of Britain's ambassador to the United States, Peter Westmacott, ABC News spokesman Jeffrey Schneider said. The fall left Walters with a cut on her forehead, he said. Walters, out of an abundance of caution, went to a hospital for treatment of the cut and for a full examination, Schneider said on Sunday. She was alert and was "telling everyone what to do, which we all take as a very positive sign," he said. It was unclear when Walters might be released from the hospital, which ABC didn't identify.

Maybe she was a little tipsy, like Diane Sawyer was when she celebrated the ass cat being re-elected

This story sounds familiar. Did a House committee recently subpoena her?

I don’t think kissing the bamster’s behind is actually considered working. It would be for us, but I’m sure she enjoys every minute of it.

Not to worry these old liberals bounce back and will keep on going. Funny how some conservatives die young of natural
causes but old leather faces like Walters keep on ticking like the energizer bunny.

"83 and still working? Bizarre"

Just like Ed McMahon. He fell and broke his leg and couldn't work for a few months. That meant he no longer could make his house payments, and his house was forclosed. He obviously spent every cent he ever earned. Maybe Baba Wawa is in the same boat.

Ya know, as a result of such shocks some people end up losing their speech impediments or various body ticks (not the insects, stupid!) If that happened to Ms Walters it would be a career killer.

She’s had major “work”..probably from same plastic surgeon that does Joan Rivers or Mary Tyler Moore.

They screwed up her cheek implants which are uneven and lumpy as cottage cheese.
