Whoopi Goldberg is recovering from Pneumonia according to Joy Behar who gave an update on the actress during a recent episode of The View.
The iconic actress has not been seen on the show since Feb. 6.
“She’s not feeling well,” 76-year-old Behar said during the broadcast. “She’s actually recovering from pneumonia. I saw her last night and she’s very funny still, and we had big laughs. She’s getting there, she’s on the mend.”
Behar also debunked the rumor that the 63-year-old actress was away prepping to host Sunday’s Oscars. Goldberg has hosted the award show four times, and some fans thought she had secretly accepted the honor again this year.
“There are all these conspiracy theories on the Internet that she’s not really sick and she’s secretly preparing to host the Oscars,” Behar stated. “She’s not even well enough to host this show right now, let alone the Oscars.”
