Veteran TV journalist Barbara Walters will resume her co-hosting duties on The View on March 4. Walters called into the talk show today and made the announcement herself. Walters stated:
"Like it or not, I’m coming back on the show again starting next Monday. No more chicken pox, no more falling down, no more nothing. I’ll be back, and I so look forward to seeing all of you. I haven’t been contagious for a while, but they wanted me to have rest, and I’ve had enough rest and I’m ready to come back."
In late January, Walters was sidelined after she fell down the stairs at the British Ambassador’s residence in Washington, DC. While Babs was recuperating in the hospital, doctors discovered she had contracted Chicken Pox.
