Barbara Walters Hospitalized for Chicken Pox

At 83, journalist Barbara Walters has been hospitalized for what's typically a childhood disease.

According to ABC News, Walters has the chicken pox!

She's been feeling down and out for more than a week after falling off a stair at an inauguration party and cutting her forehead.

The fall sent her to the hospital, then came a temperature, then doctors diagnosed her with chicken pox.

Last week Walters released a statement thanking people for all the calls and concern.
