Barbara Walters: I Feel Great After Heart Surgery

An INF camerman caught up with Barbara Walters Thursday afternoon in New York for the first sighting of the TV icon since her heart surgery last month.

"How do I look?" Walters asked the cameraman.

"You look great!" he responded.

"That's how I feel," she said.

Walters, 80, underwent surgery to replace a heart valve last month and, apart from mentions in Cindy Adams' column, has not been heard from publicly since then.
