Whoopi Goldberg Surprises 'The View' Co-Hosts in Emotional Return After Battle With Pneumonia

Posted: Updated:

Whoopi Goldberg surprised her castmates on “The View” Thursday after battling pneumonia for weeks. 

Lots of hugs and tears followed as the host returned to the set for the first time since Feb. 5, when she became gravely ill

“They had to pump a lot of stuff out of me,” she said Thursday. 

Goldberg said she got permission from her doctors to stop by the show for Thursday’s broadcast. However, her immune system is still challenged, she said, and she was still coughing.

“When they took me to the hospital, the guy said to me, 'What color is that?' talking about my skin color, it was a weird color and then 102 temperature,” she recalled, but then her condition worsened.

Goldberg said she tried to keep her illness private. When one nurse told her she looked familiar, Goldberg said she told her she was "Whoopi’s cousin.”
