Barbara Walters has been away from her anchor chair on The View since January 22, when she fainted and suffered a concussion the weekend before while on assignment for ABC News at the Presidential Inauguration. She was diagnosed with chicken pox during her hospital stay. She checked in with The View today, saying via phone that she will return March 4. “No more chicken pox. … 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”, the 83-year-old said.
