As the hosts of “The View” launched into another season this morning, Whoopi Goldberg shared some sad news. It turns out the 54-year-old host’s mother passed away on August 29 after suffering a stroke, according to the Los Angeles Times.
"My brother and I were very, very lucky to have her in our lives," Goldberg said during the show, "so I'm not sad, because she had a great time."
Her mother "was a great adventure person, so she loved to go on adventures and my brother and I made sure that her life was full and rich," she added.
"I think I'm just sad sometimes that I think, 'Who will love me the way that she did?' But I realize that my brother and I have each other and so we're OK,” she said.
