Whoopi Goldberg was in serious need of a chill pill when she lashed out over all the bad press she's gotten for defending Mel Gibson. Unfortunately, she's just now getting meds. On the most recent episode of "The View," the moderator kicked off the show by slowly reading the teleprompter and laughing until co-host Sherri Shepherd prompted her to tell the audience if anything was wrong."You know I have to fly drugged," she explained. (No, we didn't.) Apparently Whoopi flew to Vienna, Austria, over the weekend for a party -- as people do -- and needed to be sedated for her flight back. The drugs didn't ware off in time for her show's live taping. But it did mean that Whoopi was in rare form, laughing her way through much of the broadcast and dropping such glorious non sequiturs as "I got little gas."   You can check out highlights of the performance, compiled by Gawker.tv, right here:Follow Zap2it and MikeyLikesTV on Twitter and Zap2it on Facebook for the latest TV, movie and celebrity news.Photo credit: ABC
