Whoopi Goldberg Returns to 'The View' After Pneumonia

Still-Recovering Whoopi Goldberg Makes Surprise Visit On ‘The View’, Thanks TMZ For Not Tracking Her Down

"The only way it's going to get better is if I begin, so this is my beginning", she said.

Admitting that "makeup helps" her look better, Goldberg - who has not hosted the show since February 6 - went on to explain that her recovery is not over yet. "The advocate "said 'I really don't know.' I was like, 'well, this can't be the first time somebody has come in with this".

"This is my first foray out", Goldberg told the gleeful audience and her stunned co-hosts, all of whom were kept in the dark about Goldberg's visit. "They had to pump a lot of stuff out of me".

The 63-year-old EGOT victor said she'd gotten permission to be at the ABC chatfest's studios that day, but that her compromised immune system means that she'll have to "ease back in" to daily hosting duties.

Behar previously told viewers about Goldberg's diagnosis during the February 20 broadcast while simultaneously debunking rumors that Goldberg would be the surprise host of the Oscars, which were just a few days away at that point.

While she's doing better now, she said her illness was very serious. "There's death, and here's me", she said. "That's how it was". You think because you've healed quickly before that something insane can't happen, Well, it can.

Goldberg said she hopes her experience serves as a "cautionary tale for all of us". However, earlier today, she took everyone by surprise, and that includes her co-hosts, when she showed up! "This stuff, really for everybody, you think you can push through because you got a little cold. Well it could", she said. Double pneumonia and sepsis.

This is a breaking news story. As for now, "my immune system is challenged", she said. "We are shocked", added Joy Behar. "And the people who are saying "no" to you are not doctors, they are people looking at algorithms".

"One of the things that I discovered, and I'm sure many people already know this, is that your insurance really doesn't do much for you". Even people who are not huge fans of mine have actually been saying nice things bout me. "She's not even well enough to host this show right now, let alone the Oscars".
