Barbara WaltersBarbara Walters says she is "fully recovered" just two months after having open heart surgery to replace a faulty valve. In her first TV appearance since the procedure in May, Barbara checked in with her fellow panelists on ABC's 'The View.'

Broadcasting from her Manhattan apartment, Walters admits she was never in serious discomfort from the surgery. In the studio, her co-hosts marveled at her robust appearance. Joy Behar said, "You look fine."

The 80-year-old Walters will take the rest of the summer off, but will rejoin her 'View' co-hosts when its new season begins in September.
