Whoopi Goldberg got a special surprise from good friend Robert De Niro on “The View.” The daytime talk show will celebrate Goldberg’s 60th birthday on Friday’s episode, complete with mystery guests from the Oscar winner’s past. Goldberg had to guess who was going to pop up before De Niro appeared. She got clues like his first time acting was as The Cowardly Lion in a school production of “The Wizard of Oz.” He also hinted that he had worked with a certain director a number of times (Martin Scorcese).
But the birthday girl couldn’t guess, so De Niro walked out on stage carrying a massive bouquet of flowers. The episode will feature a number of surprises and gifts for Goldberg.
