That's been the question on fans' minds since she stopped showing up to her job at "The View" beginning February 6th. While substitute moderator Joy Behar said she was sick with pneumonia at the time, that didn't stop viewers from coming up with alternate theories about where she might actually be.
One guess that picked up steam on Tuesday: she's not sick, but has instead been preparing to host the Oscars after the Kevin Hart debacle.
Whoopi Goldberg's absence from The View (she's sick, they say) since the day after they announced her as an Oscar presenter+the fact that she's the only previous Oscar host listed as a presenter+she openly said on The View in January that she'd be up for hosting=???
"She's actually recovering from pneumonia, it's a serious thing," she then explained. "I don't think she's going to be able to host the Oscars and I'm sure she's very disappointed. She's not even well enough to host this show right now."
Behar added that she saw Goldberg the other night and she's "very funny still" and is "on the mend."
"Thanks for getting stoned and watching 'The View,' Peter," said Meghan McCain, "but you're wrong."
