Legendary television journalist and View host Barbara Walters underwent surgery to replace a faulty heart valve on Friday morning.

Shortly after the surgery a representative for Barbara Walters informed People magazine that: “[Her] surgery went well and the doctors are very pleased with the outcome.”

“You know how healthy I have been – never missed a day’s work.” She added, that she had “known of this condition for a while now.”

Recovery can be anywhere from a month to three months.
