Whoopi Goldberg announced on The View Monday morning that Barbara Walters is still in the hospital recovering from the chicken pox.
Joy Behar joked, “Barbara gets younger and younger every year, she’s like Benjamin Button. Now she’s going to a pediatrician.”
Walters was hospitalized 10 days ago after a fall during a party at the British Embassy. According to The Celebrity Cafe, the television host had to get stitches after hitting her head at the event.
Goldberg said on The View, “You all know that she fell and cut her head 10 days ago, and then was running a temperature, but it turns out it is all the result of a delayed childhood. Barbara has the chickenpox. She'd never had it as a child. So now she's been told to rest, she's not allowed any visitors. And we're telling you, Barbara, no scratching."
“We love you. We miss you. We just don't want to hug you,” Goldberg said in a message to Walters.
The ladies continued to joke about the incident as they wished Walters well.
Behar added, “I’m sorry I blamed it on the Grey Goose vodka. This is what you get for interviewing Honey Boo Boo.”
