Barbara Walters to have heart surgery

Barbara Walters announces she'll have heart surgery.

Talk show host Barbara Walters announced Monday she will undergo surgery this week to replace a faulty heart valve. "I have known of this condition for a while now, and my doctors and I have decided this is the best time to do the surgery," the 80-year-old co-host of ABC's "The View" said at the opening of Monday's program. She predicted she would be gone from the show for one to three months, "and then I can come roaring back."
