Serious Surgery: Barbara Walters had her own hot topic to talk about on "The View" Monday. Walters revealed that she's about to undergo heart surgery. "Later this week, I'm going to have surgery to replace one faulty heart valve," Walters said. She had just broke the news to her co-hosts that morning. She also said she'll take the summer off to recover, which means we can probably expect another round of strange replacements in the coming months.
Party Princess: She's 88, but that's not stopping her. Eyewitnesses tell Life & Style that former "Golden Girl" Betty White went to the "Saturday Night Live" after-party following her hosting gig, and partied until 3 a.m. She then got up for a 6:30 a.m. flight the following morning. And her amazing ratings have another offer being thrown her way. "Dancing With the Stars" wants White to grace the floor next season, sources tell Popeater. Betty hasn't agreed to anything yet, but is said to be worried she wouldn't have the stamina to keep up with the younger contestants. Her after-party hours seem to prove otherwise! Another note: a new Facebook movement is underway to get White to host the Oscars.
