Whoopi Goldberg Missed 'The View' Season 27 Premiere - Find Out the Reason Why

Whoopi Goldberg was noticeably missing during the Season 27 premiere of The View. The 67-year-old co-host did not appear when the show returned on Tuesday (September 5), and Joy Behar quickly addressed the situation on-air. “As you can see, Whoopi is not here. She has COVID,” the 80-year-old co-host said. “Yes, it’s back. It’s back! But she’s on the mend. She’s on the tail end, and she’ll probably be back this week. But sorry she’s not here, for those of you who were looking forward to seeing her.” Joy, who is the only original co-host still on the show, also joked about her 25 seasons at the Hot Topics table. “We’re back. Thank you,” the comedian said as she greeted the studio audience. “This is the premiere show of our 27th year on the air. I was here for all of it, except for two, when they canned me. When they sacked my behind.” Find out who else is on the panel! See who is the richest co-star of The View, past and present.
