A report that Barbara Walters recently experienced a health scare has no merit.
On Monday, Radar Online reported that the legendary talk-show host was hospitalized with heart problems last week. But a source close to Walters told us the report “is not true, she wasn’t rushed to hospital, she just saw her doctor. There is no heart problem, God forbid.”
While the website was correct in reporting that sheunderwent aortic valve replacement in May of 2010, the rest of the story, particularly the bit about Walters “experiencing heart complications,” is bunk, her spokesperson confirmed to Page Six on Monday afternoon.
“Barbara had some routine doctor appointments, she is fine and she is at home,” rep Cindi Berger said.
