Whoopi Goldberg Wheezes On-Air Holding Onto Her Chest
About halfway through the show, Whoopi started introducing the day’s guests to the viewers after a commercial break. Everything started off well and the moderator successfully introduced actor Samuel L. Jackson and his wife LaTanya Richardson Jackson. However, as she got to the details of the couple’s latest projects, things took a scary turn.
During the introduction, just as she was about to mention LaTanya’s name, the 67-year-old started having slight trouble breathing. She could be heard wheezing and holding onto her chest as she coughed.
Sara Haines Attempts To Diffuse Whoopi’s Coughing Fit
Although the host attempted to continue her introduction part, the coughing fit didn’t let her do so. She turned to her side and continued to cough in an attempt to clear her airways. Eventually, her co-host Sara Haines jumped in attempting to help her out.
She reached over to pat the moderator on the back and helped diffuse the coughing as her other co-hosts asked if she was doing okay.
As the moderator struggled on-air, fans at home wondered if she was alright and wished her better health. Eventually, the coughing faded away and Whoopi was finally able to speak and participate in the segment with the guests.
