    "Barbara Walters fell on a stair last evening while visiting the British Ambassador's residence and the fall left her with a cut on her forehead," a rep for ABC News tells E! News. "Out of an abundance of caution, she went to the hospital to have her cut tended to, have a full examination and remains there for observation. Barbara is alert (and telling everyone what to do), which we all take as a very positive sign."

    Walters was scheduled to contribute to the network's coverage of the inauguration events, but will not be on-air Monday and possibly several more days after that, according to TV Newser.

    Barbara Walters isn't the only celeb who has taken a tumble.
