Whoopi Goldberg's Surprise Visit After Health Scare Brings Tears On 'The View'

Whoopi Goldberg's Surprise Visit After Health Scare Brings Tears On 'The View'

Whoopi Goldberg made a surprise return to "The View" Thursday, her first appearance since February 5 when she took an extended leave to recover from pneumonia.

Goldberg said it was her first "foray" out but that she is still dealing with remnants of her illness. "I'm not there yet, but the only way it's going to get better is if I begin, so this is my beginning", said the 63-year-old. "Who told them they could use that money when I wasn't using it?'"

Goldberg said she hopes her experience serves as a "cautionary tale for all of us. I really kind of missed y'all".

"'I think some people said to me, 'So, um, how did you get pregnant?' And I could not figure out what they were talking about, and then I remembered that [Joy] had said, 'She's on maternity leave".

Goldberg, who is still recovering, says she spent three weeks in the hospital. You say, 'I'm gonna just keep going, keep going.' And you think because you've healed quick before that something insane can't happen.

As the co-hosts gathered around her, Goldberg outlined how she'd gone to the hospital via ambulance and how "the scariest moment was hearing my doctor say to me, 'You do realize how close to death you were?'" "You can not leave this show".

Whoopi stressed how close she was to dying, saying, "There's death and here's me. We missed you so much". "I'm not dead. Here's what happened". "I'm not there yet, I know that", said Goldberg. "And it got me to thinking: 'Why is it that I've been paying insurance for nearly 60 years and it hasn't rolled over, you know what I mean?" Thank you for all of your good wishes, all of the wonderful things that people have been saying.

Press PLAY on the video above to watch Goldberg's reunion with the View ladies. "She's getting there, she's on the mend". "Hurry back Whoopi and get some rest", Joy Behar said until screams from the audience interrupted her as Goldberg walked onto the stage.

"There are all these conspiracy theories on the internet that she's not really sick and she's secretly preparing to host the Oscars", she continued.

The View airs weekdays (11 a.m. ET) on ABC.
