In the field of television journalism, Barbara Walters has been a trailblazer since the 1970s. The first female co-anchor of “ABC World News Tonight,” she made history when she joined the team that year. Her annual compensation of $1 million was also a first at the time. Later in her career, she worked as an anchor on “20/20” before launching her own talk program, “The View.”
There are many honors that Walters has won over her career. Such honors consist of both Daytime Emmy Awards and Primetime Emmy Awards. Simply stating that she is a well-respected journalist would be an understatement.
A 93rd birthday party was held for Walters in September. “To the one and only Barbara Walters, who had a birthday yesterday, we want to say, 27 never looked so good.” Whoopi Goldberg said on “The View” as a tribute to the show’s creator.
It was Goldberg’s intention to wish Walters a happy birthday, but her tweet sent chills down the spines of worried admirers who were beginning to worry why they hadn’t heard from or seen Walters in quite some time.
Rapid decline in Walters’ health is becoming apparent. Reliable sources claim that Walters suffers from advanced dementia and never leaves her New York City apartment. She uses a wheelchair when she finally does get out of bed, which is not often.
In addition, the insider said that Walters has no idea what’s going on around her and that the only time she appears aware is when the news is on, even if she isn’t actually paying attention to it. Walters, on the other hand, is perplexed since she feels compelled to cover the topic on the news.
For the first time since she finally retired in 2014, Walters hasn’t been seen in public since 2016. Before the pandemic of 2020, she frequently entertained guests in her apartment; now, she now lives alone with the assistance of her caregivers.
According to the information we have, Walters is “very fragile and spends a major portion of the day napping.” Walters “experiences weariness and lethargy, as well as anxiety and anger.”
Walters’s team is apparently making plans for when she inevitably becomes sick. The source claims that Barbara’s condition worsens daily. As Barbara’s situation worsens, her crew is working feverishly to carry out her final wishes.
The insider claims that due to her dementia, Walters is unable to make many decisions on her own. “Unfortunately, her dementia has worsened,”. She is given the freedom to make little choices in her daily life, but she generally just sits there and stares at her caretakers.
Another source claims Walters has trouble recalling the names of her renowned friends and acquaintances. She was called a “virtual skeleton” by the person providing the information on her.
Do you find Walters’ health state to be out of the ordinary? What are your thoughts on her longevity?
