Barbara Walters would probably like to hit the reset button on 2013.
She has the chickenpox and remains hospitalized more than a week after going in after falling and hitting her head at a pre-inaugural party in Washington on Jan. 19. A fellow host on the The View, Whoopi Goldberg, said Monday that Walters, 83, has been transferred to a New York hospital and hopes to go home soon.
The disease can be serious in older people because of the possibility of complications such as pneumonia.
Singer Chris Brown is under investigation for an alleged assault in a West Hollywood parking lot, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said early Monday.
Deputies responding to a report of six men fighting Sunday night found the scene clear, but were told by witnesses there had been a brief fight over a parking space.
The altercation allegedly led to Chris Brown punching the victim, the department said in a statement released early Monday morning.
The victim wasn’t identified, but the celebrity website TMZ said it also involved Frank Ocean, one of the top nominees at the Grammy Awards next month.
