Goldberg surprised her co-hosts Thursday morning at the beginning of the show, and the group spent the next few minutes in a massive group hug. "I'm not there yet, I know that".

"They said, 'well, your insurance has said no to this.' I said, 'well, can I lease it, can I rent it?'" she went on. Makeup helps... I still have a cough, and that's the last thing to go, apparently.

Goldberg plans to slowly ease her way back into hosting over the next week-and-a-half, she said. I saw her last night and she's very amusing still, and we had big laughs. "This stuff, really for everybody, you think you can push through because you got a little cold". "You need to think of it".

"They had to pump a lot of stuff out of me", she said.

Goldberg said she hopes her experience serves as a "cautionary tale for all of us. That to me is a conflict of interest", Goldberg said.

Whoopi shared the great news that she is planning on coming back to the show gradually, over the next six weeks, despite still struggling a bit with her "challenged" immune system.

"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 said.

Behar said the hosts had no idea Whoopi was showing up, adding, "We are shocked, personally".

Earlier this month, Whoopi revealed that she almost died.

She also explained that she got special permission to stop by since she missed the other ladies. Aww.... She's not supposed to be with many people - which caused the studio audience to laugh.

The EGOT victor, 63, dropped in on Joy Behar, Abby Huntsman, Ana Navarro, Sunny Hostin and Meghan McCain at the top of the show for her first live appearance since a serious bout of pneumonia put her in the hospital for three weeks.

And while the relationship with insurance and doctors is a complicated one, Goldberg offered up at least one place to start. "The advocate "said 'I really don't know.' I was like, 'well, this can't be the first time somebody has come in with this". "And the people who are saying "no" to you are not doctors, they are people looking at algorithms".

"I think doctors should not be on insurance boards".
