Barbara Walters Reportedly Fears Leaving Apartment, Falling

A new report claims that the famed journalist and former The View co-host isn't doing too well.

According to TMZ, Barbara Walters has been staying in her New York apartment, rarely leaving her home to venture outside. The 87-year-old is reportedly afraid of falling and potentially breaking a hip. The gossip site notes that Walters has also become "increasingly forgetful and confused."

Walters reportedly does not want visitors, choosing to welcome only a few close friends into her apartment. She does, however, have a trainer come to her home for weekly workouts.

Walters has yet to comment on TMZ's report.
