Whoopi Goldberg has been MIA from her hosting chair on The View for quite some time, but now fans are getting the update they’ve been waiting for. And although things were bleak for a moment, thankfully, Goldberg is on the mend.
The message began with a simple “Hey” and even a joke from the 63-year-old comedienne, “I am here. I am up and moving around — not as fast as I’d like to be, but I am okay. I’m not dead.”
Whoopi went on to reveal that she had pneumonia in both lungs, was septic and “all kinds of stuff was going on.” She continued, “Yes, I came very close to leaving the earth. Good news, I didn’t. Thank you for all of your good wishes, all of the wonderful things that people have been saying. Even people who aren’t huge fans of mine have actually been saying nice thing about me.”
Goldberg also gave a shout out to her co-host, who she hasn’t been seated next to since February 6th.
“Ladies, I cannot wait to see y’all. This has been interesting and I’ll tell you about it when we’re all at the table. To everybody, see you soon.”
No word on when “soon” is, but we’re happy to see Goldberg is doing better!
