Actress/television host, Jenny McCarthy spoke fondly of her former "The View" co-host, Barbara Walters, who has been rumored to be dealing with a health scare.

The 47-year-old opened up while speaking to Us Weekly during a special edition of her Radio Row SiriusXM live show ahead of the Super Bowl.

The actress, who appeared alongside the 90-year-old show founder for the 17th season between 2013 and 2014, admitted that learning from the legendary broadcast journalist was the best part of her stint on the show.

The ABC star's rumored health struggle has, however, left the "Masked Singer" judge worried about her mentor. Speaking to the outlet about her concerns, she revealed:

"I heard that she's in a place of not doing great, and I just talked to Sherri Shepherd about it, and we're sending some cards over to her."

Despite her worries, the mother of one was positive that the famed journalist would come out of the crisis unscathed as she was "a juggernaut that'll just keep going no matter what."

Interestingly, the two women were not exactly the best of friends during their year together. In author Ramin Setoodeh's book, Jenny admitted that her year on "The View" was the most miserable in her 25-year showbiz career.

Notwithstanding, she learned to love Barbara like a grandma. Fans of the 90-year-old have also taken to various platforms to express concerns over the TV star's health while pouring out their love, encouragement, and support.

Amid the scare, a representative of the "20/20" star denied all claims of an underlying health condition, while assuring Us Weekly that all was "just fine," saying:

"I see her every two to three weeks, and she's doing just fine. On Thursday, we had a lovely afternoon and talked about the oscar-nominated films and the performances. She will be watching Sunday night!"

This is not the first time a co-host on "The View" would support rumors of an alleged health condition threatening the broadcast journalist.

Last year, "The View" co-host, Rosie O'Donnell, spoke about the sudden disappearance of the show founder from the spotlights.

She disclosed that the 90-year-old was not fit enough to address people. Rosie also noted that the woman was dealing with "aging in America," which was difficult even for an internationally renowned personality.

Until Barbara makes an official public appearance, it would be a problematic feat convincing fans that the beloved television personality was faring well, and out of danger.
