Whoopi Goldberg has returned to “The View” after a two-week suspension.

She said: “Hello, hello, hello and welcome to ‘The View.’ And yes, I am back. I missed you all. I got to tell you, there’s something kind of marvelous about being on a show like this because we are ‘The View’ and this is what we do.”
