How do you know when Barbara Walters is “fully recovered”? When she starts name dropping.
During her first appearance on The View since having heart valve surgery, the daytime co-host took time out to thank those - including Hillary Clinton, Woody Allen and Queen Rania of Jordan - who offered words of support during her absence.
“I have to say thank you to my friends and the fans because it helped me get better; it meant so much,” Barbara sincerely stated.

On 24, Jack Bauer can take a beating yet still complete his mission on time. In real life, Kiefer Sutherland needs a bit more recovery time.
Due to a ruptured cyst near the actor’s kidneys, filming on his series has been briefly shut down while Sutherland undergoes minor surgery. The incident, which occurred early last week, should have minor impact on the show’s production schedule.
“We are temporarily suspending production of 24 while our friend and colleague Kiefer Sutherland undergoes a medical procedure,” FOX execs said in a statement. “We hope to resume production shortly and do not anticipate any disruption in the broadcast of this season’s episodes.”
“While Kiefer Sutherland is frustrated to miss even one day of work, he and FOX decided together that it would be best to complete this minor elective procedure now as a precaution as opposed to six weeks from now when production wraps,” the 43-year-old’s rep added. “He looks forward to returning to work (this) week.”

The curse of the parquet floor has struck again.
Despite being only halfway over, the seventh season of Dancing with the Stars has already seen more than its share of medical emergencies. So far this fall, we’ve seen Jeffrey Ross with an eye patch, Susan Lucci with an ankle wrap and Misty May-Treanor with a seat on the sidelines. Now one of the show’s professionals is going to be added to the injury list.
One week after being checked out for stomach issues, we’re learning the real reason behind Julianne Hough’s trip to the hospital. Although her evaluation was initially downplayed, it turns out the country singer - who was discovered to have endometriosis - will actually need to have her appendix removed.
Fortunately, the 20-year-old has a common medical condition that is found in 5-10% of women of reproductive age. Those diagnosed with endometriosis experience a development of uterine-lining tissue outside the uterus on the surfaces of organs in the pelvis or abdomen where they are not supposed to grow.

UPDATE: You can find new information on May-Treanor’s status here.
Maksim Chmerkovskiy‘s return to the ballroom has just been cut short.
According to Access Hollywood, Olympic volleyball player Misty May-Treanor has officially been sidelined from the Dancing with the Stars. The athlete apparently suffered an injury that will require surgery.
It’s unclear at this point whether the injury was a result of something she did on the dance floor or the volleyball court. The gold medalist had been simultaneously competing on the AVP volleyball tour while rehearsing for the reality show.
