TV broadcasting legend Barbara Walters is said to be living her life within the confines of her New York apartment, showing significant signs of age and receiving almost no visitors. According to TMZ, the 87-year-old icon has become increasingly forgetful and confused. She almost never leaves her apartment because she has an intense fear of falling down and breaking a hip, something that often results in a downward spiral for older people.
Barbara does not want to receive guests. Allegedly, she has shut herself off to almost everyone at ABC, and she only sees a few people who have been close to her.
Barbara does have a trainer who sees her weekly.
