Whoopi Goldberg Speaks Out About Her 1-Month Absence From 'The View' Whoopi Goldberg addressed her one-month absence from The View following a bout with pneumonia. “Hey, yes, it’s me. I am here,” she said in a pre-taped video message that aired on the ABC morning show on Friday, March 8. “I am up and moving around. Not as fast as I’d like to be, but I am OK. I’m not dead. So here’s what happened: I had pneumonia and I was septic. Pneumonia in both lungs, which mean there was fluid, there was all kinds of stuff going on. And yes, I came very, very close to leaving the Earth. Good news, I didn’t. Thank you for all of your good wishes.

Whoopi Goldberg made a surprise appearance on "The View" Thursday, after being absent from the show for the past for health reasons.

Goldberg has had pneumonia in both lungs and became "septic," leading to a lot of fluid and "all kinds of stuff going on." She's been absent from "The View" since Feb. 5.

"This is my first foray out," Goldberg said. "I'm not there yet, I know that. The only way it's going to get better is if I began, so this is my beginning." She added she'll start to return over the "next week and a half."

Last week, she shared an update, revealing that, though she's "not dead," she actually came awfully close. "I am OK. I'm not dead," Goldberg said in a taped segment that rolled at the top of the March 8 episode. "Yes, I came very, very close to leaving the Earth. Good news, I didn't. Thank you for all of your good wishes."

Goldberg's lengthy absence from the show coincided with the Oscars, and since there was no host, it led to some speculation that Goldberg might be a surprise Oscar host, as she's hosted in the past. The Oscars did proceed however without a host — and without Whoopi, who was supposed to be a presenter.

"The View" airs at 11 a.m./10 a.m. central on ABC. Joy Behar has been handling Goldberg's moderating duties since she fell ill.
