The View co-hosts wished a hospitalized Barbara Walters a speedy recovery on today's airing of the chatfest. Walters cut her head during a fall at the residence of the British ambassador on January 19. Whoopi Goldberg shared Walters' statement with viewers.
"First and foremost, all the people who have called, written and been concerned about me, I'm most appreciative. I'm running a low-grade fever and the doctors are keeping me in the hospital until my temperature is normal. I'm pleased that it is going in the right direction and I will be home soon."
Journalistic icon and The View co-host Barbara Walters has named Honey Boo Boo as one of her Most Fascinating People of 2012, US Magazine reports. So why did Walters choose the energy drink loving 7-year-old?
"It's a love story," Walters tells Us of the bond between Alana and her mother, June, on TLC's breakout hit. "It's a very sweet, loving story."
"A lot of people will say, 'For heaven's sake, this is ridiculous, this is a child at 5 or 6 years old entering beauty contests,'" she says. "But the relationship between Alana and her mother -- that's the story, the two of them. It's very touching."
Honey Boo Boo can certainly be described as fascinating; just like a so-awful-you-can't-stop-watching Tori Spelling Christmas TV movie is fascinating. READ MORE

Veteran TV journalist Barbara Walters is not too keen on troubled starlet Lindsay Lohan these days. Last week, LiLo bowed out of a sit-down interview with Walters on 20/20, after her new publicity team claimed the actress wasn't "up to it."
Instead, Lohan's team decided to grant her first interview to promote Liz & Dick to Jay Leno of The Tonight Show. Babs voiced to her co-hosts on The View about how "disappointed" she was. Walters said:
We were supposed to do the interview last week to air on 20/20 Nov. 16. I spent a lot of time doing a lot of homework, watching the movie. Then her longtime press agent resigned. That should've been a clue. The next thing we hear is my interview is canceled because Lindsay doesn't feel up to it. She has a lot of problems ... I said, 'Poor girl, I hope when she feels like it she will do it with us.' So today I pick up the paper and find out Lindsay]is sitting for an interview with Jay Leno. READ MORE
