Barbara Walters - Barbara Walters "Stitched Up And Doing Fine" After Inauguration Tumble

Don't fret, Barbara Walters fans, your girl is doing just fine after taking a tumble at the inauguration party over the weekend. As was widely reported, the ABC News veteran fell on a staircase at the British ambassador's residence in Washington and was taken to hospital to be examined.

Little detail has been provided since, though Whoopi Goldberg - her co-host on The View - said on the show Tuesday, "Barbara went to Washington to cover the inauguration. She missed a step and had a fall, which cut her upper temple. The doctors stitched her up, and she is doing fine, but they want her to take it easy." Goldberg proceeded to read out a statement in which Walters said she wanted to "thank all the people who have called, written and been concerned about me," adding, "I am 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."

Walters - who became the first female news anchor to earn a $1 million salary in the 1970s - was scheduled to cover President Obama's inauguration festivities on Monday (January 21, 2012), though had to pull out.
