May 17, 2010  •  Post A Comment

"The View" host Barbara Walters is recovering from heart surgery that "went well," the Associated Press reports, citing her spokeswoman, Cindi Berger. 

The surgery repaired a faulty heart valve, and the doctors "are very pleased with the outcome," Berger said.

The 80-year old Walters said last week she needed surgery to replace the aortic valve, and planned to take off the summer to recover from the operation. She plans to return to the show in September.
