Whoopi Goldberg makes surprise visit to The View after severe pneumonia battle

I know that. But the only its only get better if it I begin.

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.

"I wanted the first foray to be to come see y'all because I really kinda missed y'all", she said.

"I said okay." After several days passed by with no progress, Goldberg said she asked her doctors what was going on. "That to me is a conflict of interest", she said.

The surprise visit left Goldberg's View co-hosts excited for her return. I saw her last night and she's very amusing still, and we had big laughs. "That to me is a conflict of interest", Goldberg said. "That's how it was". "The scariest moment was my doctor saying to me, 'You do realize how close to death you were?' That was like, 'Uh, no.' I actually hadn't thought of it", Goldberg said.

"My doctor said you need this machine. This is us", Goldberg said.

One Day at a Time has been praised as a beacon of representation on television. We had the time of our lives making this show, ' Royce and Kellett wrote.

This being The View, Goldberg also offered her opinion on health insurance, describing how her insurance "advocate" was at odds with her doctor over which in-hospital breathing machine would be paid for. "This stuff, really for everybody, you think you can push through because you got a little cold".

"You must really take care of yourself", she said.

Goldberg shared a video update from her home on Friday, Feb. 8. after over a month of taking leave from the show.

Goldberg was missing from set since February 6 - more than a month - revealing last week that her bout with pneumonia was so severe that she almost died. "There was all kinds of stuff going on and, yes, I came very, very close to leaving the Earth".

This is a breaking news story.

"She's not feeling well", Behar said during the broadcast. Thank you for all of your good wishes, all of the wonderful things that people have been saying. "We are shocked", added Joy Behar. "Who told them they could use that money when I wasn't using it?'" "Why is it I've been paying insurance for nearly 60 years and it hasn't rolled over?" "She's not even well enough to host this show right now, let alone the Oscars".
