I have been writing about this permanent A list news host for the past couple of years and her spiraling health.
Last time I wrote about her I told you she wasn’t able to remember even things like where she lived.
Now, she is pretty much forced to stay inside close to 24/7.
The 87-year-old icon has become increasingly forgetful and confused … sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ.
She almost never leaves her apartment, we’re told, because she has an intense fear of falling down and breaking a hip … something that often results in a downward spiral for older people.
Barbara does not want to receive guests.
We’re told she has shut herself off to almost everyone at ABC, and she only sees a few people who have been close to her. – Source
