Whoopi Goldberg: 'I Just Had A Big Ole Hot Flash' (VIDEO)

Whoopi Goldberg revealed that she had a hot flash on-air during Wednesday's "The View."

The roundtable was discussing Mitt Romney's criticism of the White House response to the attack on the U.S. embassy in Libya. The GOP candidate's reaction to the situation has been blasted by pundits on all sides.

Whoopi had just finished weighing in when she made a bizarre seque to a commercial break. "You know what?" she said abruptly. "I just had a big ole hot flash."

"Did you?" one of her co-hosts inquired.

"Yes. And my underwear is wet. So I have to go," she declared. "The audience does not have to know that!" Barbara Walters protested.
