    Barbara Walters, arguably the world's most famous interviewer, is having surgery to replace a faulty heart valve this week. She revealed the info on her weekly gabfest, The View. Apparently, Babs had revealed the news to her co-anchors that morning before revealing it to her loyal legion of fans and View watchers.

    "Later this week, I'm going to have surgery to replace one faulty heart valve," Walters said. When co-host Joy Behar commented that Babs kept the secret close to the vest, she replied, "I thought it best not to talk about it too far in advance." Walters has known about her ticker problem for some time and that she and her doctors felt that summer was a good time to fix the problem. Recovery is estimated to last from one to three months.

    Do you think Walters needed to reveal her heart valve problem to the world via her show? Who is yer fave The View co-host? I like them all, even though I don't watch the show, but I despise Elisabeth Hasselbeck. Can someone send her back to Survivor land?
