According to a report by Extra, TV personality Whoopi Goldberg has shared an update on her health, after a lengthy absence from co-hosting 'The View.' On Friday, in a taped message, Goldberg said, "I am here, I am up and moving around, not as fast as I'd like to be, but I am okay. I'm not dead." She went on to explain, "So, here's what happened. I had pneumonia, and I was septic. Pneumonia in both lungs, which meant there was fluid. There was all kinds of stuff going on and, yes, I came very, very close to leaving the Earth.” US Weekly reports that Whoopi had been scheduled to cohost the Love Rocks NYC event on Thursday night, but was forced to cancel her appearance.
