NEW YORK (AP) - Whoopi Goldberg says she channels her grief from her mother’s death last month by staying busy.

The co-host of “The View” attended the New York launch party Wednesday for purewow.com, a website with daily tips for women 35 and over. She is an investor.

Asked how she’s handling her mother’s death, Goldberg said, “I’m here, but it’s not easy.”

Her mother, Emma Johnson, died from complications following a stroke.


Goldberg had been doing a limited stint as Mother Superior in the London version of “Sister Act” and immediately returned to the U.S.

“Sister Act” moves to Broadway this season with an opening planned for Spring 2011. Goldberg is also one of the show’s producers but says she has no plans to reprise her role.
