Barbara Walters Has Chicken Pox

"Barbara has the chicken pox. She'd never had it as a child," she continued. "So now she's been told to rest, she's not allowed any visitors, and we're telling you, Barbara, no scratching." 

In a statement last week, Walters, 83, thanked her fans and "all the people who have called, written and been concerned about me."

Wow!

 

 

I can't believe she's 83! I can't believe she's never had CP either, lol! Crazy.

as I asked in the other tread about her------who did she get it from? I haven't heard about it. Curious minds would like to know- I know I am not alone here.

Maybe she caught it from someone with shingles.  Wild chicken pox is out there in public. I know several families who have gotten it over the past few years but have no idea from where, including recently my friend's vaccinated daughter!  A couple of years ago a friend's family all had the chicken pox and her 40 year old husband got them too. He was extremely sick.  He didn't realize he'd never had it as a child.

my understanding your contact must be closer with shingles, so she should know - I just wish they would say but they might have to bring up you can "catch" them and we tend not to talk about that part of it- even if it was from shingles!!
