 Barbara Walters has the chicken pox, Whoopi Goldberg announced on Bab’s daytime talker “The View” Monday morning. Walters has been MIA from the show for days; last week Goldberg told viewers that owing to a “low grade fever, “Babs was being kept in the hospital, where she was sent when she hit her head on the steps of the British Embassy in Washington while attending an inaugural party.

"You all know that she fell and cut her head 10 days ago, and then was running a temperature, but it turns out it is all the result of a delayed childhood,” Whoopi said on Monday’s show.

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

Babs transferred to a New York hospital late last week, ABC said Monday.
