Whoopi Goldberg tests positive for COVID, misses ‘The View’ premiere

Whoopi Goldberg appears in October in New York City for a press conference promoting the film "Till."

The View” was missing one of its co-hosts during its Season 27 premiere Tuesday.

Whoopi Goldberg was absent from the show, sick at home with her third bout of COVID-19, the daytime talk show co-hosts revealed. But that explanation hasn’t stopped viewers from coming up with their own wild ideas about the Academy Award winner’s whereabouts, much to the chagrin of co-host Joy Behar.

“People write, ‘Well, she got the vaccination, how come she still gets it?’” Behar, 80, said on Wednesday to co-hosts Sara Haines, Sunny Hostin, Alyssa Farah Griffin and Ana Navarro. “Because she’s not dead, she’s just a little bit under the weather!”
