This is the same sickness that killed the mother of Diddys children, Kim Porter, passed away but to pneumonia.

According to TMZ:

Whoopi appeared on “The View” Friday with a video update and said she’d been battling a bad case of pneumonia.

She said, “Yes, I came very, very close to leaving the Earth. Good news, I didn’t.”

Whoopi has not been on the panel since February 6. 

She said the illness was bad … with pneumonia in both lungs. Also she thanked her fans for their well wishes.
