Barbara Walters returns to 'The View' Monday (ABC)
UPDATE: On Tuesday morning on "The View," Barbara Walters shared that it was actor Frank Langella who had shingles and gave her chicken pox. That doesn't stop your guesses and comments (over the past 15 hours, below) from being totally awesome!
The grand dame of television, Barbara Walters, returned to her throne on “The View” today for the first time since January.
And after her standing ovation -- even Regis Philbin and NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg stopped by with flowers to welcome her back on the air -- the 83-year-old proceeded to explain the timeline of what’s kept her off the air for the last six weeks.
If you recall, Walters was hospitalized after she fell down at a party in Washington, D.C. over Inauguration weekend and hurt her head. A week or so later she announced she had contracted chicken pox.
Someone can contract chicken pox at her age? How, you ask?! By mingling with famous people, apparently.
