Barbara Walters To Undergo Heart Surgery This Week

May 10, 2010 Barbara Walters, The View

Barbara Walters is going to have heart surgery. The octogenarian journalist has announced on "The View" that she will be undergoing the operation later this week.

Walters, 80, told the audience and her ABC show co-hosts that she needs to have a faulty heart valve replaced.

She said, "Lot of people have done this and I have known about this condition for a while now. My doctors and I have decided that this is the best time to do the surgery."

"And since the summer is coming up, I can take a nice vacation. Earlier this morning I told my wonderful and supportive pals here. And you kept it a secret until this very minute."

Walters will be back on "The View" after a full recovery, which is expected to take from a month up to three months.
