Whoopi Goldberg makes surprise 'View' appearance after near-death experience

Whoopi Goldberg makes surprise 'View' appearance after near-death experience

The longtime host has been absent from the ABC talk show since early February, when she was hospitalized for pneumonia and sepsis - a double-whammy illness that she said nearly killed her. Goldberg went on to say that she's feeling much better, and she plans on returning to The View part-time next week, maybe even as early as Monday.

The crowd started chanting Whoopi's name, and after they stopped, she explained: 'This is my first foray out... "But the only way it's going to get better is if I begin, so this is my beginning". "They had to pump a lot of stuff out of me".

Goldberg said she hopes her experience serves as a "cautionary tale for all of us". "The guy said to me, 'What color is that?' talking about my face because I was some weird color", she said. As for now, "my immune system is challenged", she said. "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. You must really take care of yourself, because there is little tiny stuff out there that will kill you that you never think of".

Goldberg thanked the press, including TMZ, for keeping the details of her illness quiet and not chasing her down in the hospital.

Goldberg's appearance was a shock to her fellow hosts who were in the middle of giving an update on Goldberg's health.

"We missed you so much!" exclaimed co-host Meghan McCain. "Sixty years of insurance money and you're telling me I can't get this machine". "There's death, and here's me", said Goldberg on Thursday. "If you do the machine and you do this breathing thing, you won't have to get this operation", she said. I'm not dead. So, here's what happened. "I'm not there yet, I know that", said Goldberg.

Goldberg has co-hosted The View since 2007. "She's getting there, she's on the mend".

Goldberg plans to slowly ease her way back into hosting over the next week-and-a-half, she said.

"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 at 11 a.m. ET on ABC.
