Barbara Walters on the Mend After Nasty Fall

All is well with Barbara Walters after a scary fall left her with a cut head, but it would appear the 83-year-old is doing fine, and thanked fans for their concern. 

"First and foremost, I want to thank all the people who have called and written and been concerned about me. I'm most appreciative," said the 83-year-old Walters to E!. "I'm running a low-grade fever and the doctors are keeping me in the hospital until my temperature is normal. I'm pleased to say that it is going in the right direction and I will be home soon." The View co-host fell while visiting the British Ambassador's residence Saturday night in Washington, D.C, and was forced to pull out of hosting parts of the inauguration. 

"Barbara Walters fell on a stair last evening while visiting the British Ambassador's residence and the fall left her with a cut on her forehead," a rep for ABC News told E! News at the time. "Out of an abundance of caution, she went to the hospital to have her cut tended to, have a full examination and remains there for observation. Barbara is alert (and telling everyone what to do), which we all take as a very positive sign." Contact Music would like to wish Barbara a full recovery.
