NEW YORK, May 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Barbara Walters announced this morning on "The View" the following:
"YOU KNOW HOW HEALTHY I HAVE BEEN – NEVER MISSED A DAY'S WORK. LATER THIS WEEK, I AM GOING TO HAVE SURGERY TO REPLACE ONE FAULTY HEART VALVE. LOTS OF PEOPLE HAVE DONE THIS. I HAVE KNOWN OF THIS CONDITION FOR A WHILE NOW AND MY DOCTORS AND I HAVE DECIDED THAT THIS IS THE BEST TIME TO DO THE SURGERY. SINCE THE SUMMER IS COMING UP, I CAN TAKE A NICE VACATION.
EARLIER THIS MORNING, I TOLD MY WONDERFUL PALS HERE, AS I AM NOW TELLING YOU, AND IT WILL BE A SURPRISE TO MANY FRIENDS. BUT I THOUGHT IT BEST NOT TO TALK ABOUT IT TOO FAR IN ADVANCE. I LOVE YOU ALL."
No further statements will be made at this time, says Cindi Berger, PMK BNC.
