Walters expects to leave hospital soon

NEW YORK (AP) — Barbara Walters says she expects to be home from the hospital soon after taking a spill at a Saturday night party at the British ambassador's home in Washington.

The veteran ABC newswoman thanked people who expressed concern in a statement read Monday on "The View."

She says she's running a low-grade fever and doctors don't want to release her until her temperature is normal. She says things are going in the right direction and she expects to be home soon.

Her colleagues at "The View" wished her well on the air, although comic Joy Behar couldn't resist a joke.

Behar urged Walters to get well and to "lay off the Grey Goose" vodka.
