Whoopi Goldberg just revealed her bout with pneumonia was so severe she nearly died.
Whoopi appeared on “The View” Friday via a video update and said she’d been battling a bad case of pneumonia. She said, “Yes, I came very, very close to leaving the Earth. Good news, I didn’t.”
The comedian/co-host has not appeared on the panel since February 6 and, on Thursday, Whoopi reportedly skipped a benefit concert in NYC she was scheduled to co-host with Martin Short.
She said the illness was bad … with pneumonia in both lungs. Whoopi says she’s okay and moving around, and she thanked her fans for wishing her well.
