Whoopi Goldberg was sicker than we knew. She gave us a health update on Friday’s The View. As she recovers from pneumonia, Goldberg said on a video message, “Yes, I came very close to leaving the earth. Good news, I didn’t.” Goldberg said she had pneumonia in both of her lungs and was septic. She continued, “Thank you for all of your good wishes, all of the wonderful things that people have been saying. Even people who aren’t huge fans of mine have actually been saying nice thing about me.” Goldberg has been off the desk at The View since February 6th.
