Despite reports of Barbara Walter’s supposed failing health, representative for the legendary broadcaster Cindi Berger told Fox News she’s “fine.”

“I see Barbara every 2-3 weeks, and she’s fine,” Berger said. “I’m actually seeing her next week for tea. No truth to this.”

The reassuring news follows a report by TMZ earlier this month suggesting Walters had been showing significant signs of age and was becoming “increasingly forgetful and confused.” Sources indicated she had developed a fear of falling and wouldn’t leave her apartment or see many visitors, isolating herself from others.

At 87-years-old, Walters has had a hugely successful career and has been open about her health concerns in the past. In 2010, she underwent open heart surgery and spoke out about her fears leading up to the operation, describing not knowing what to expect in the aftermath as “scary as hell.”

While Walters herself has not yet addressed the rumors surrounding her health, fans of the co-creator of “The View” are sure to feel a little at ease after the hopeful statement from Berger.
