Whoopi Goldberg isn’t quitting daytime talk show despite rumors
Whoopi Goldberg does not intend to leave View soon, despite recent rumors to the contrary. Throughout the past year and particularly in the past few months, sources close to Goldberg have told various celebrity media outlets that she is on the verge of retiring from the talk show. Now a report of Gossip cop refuted all these rumors.
The globe published two articles on Goldberg’s alleged departure View this year – once in January, saying her arguments with co-host Meghan McCain were pushing her to retire, and later that she disagreed with the entire cast. However, an ABC spokesperson said they were just unfounded rumors, adding: “someone is trying to create drama where there is none”. Goldberg herself denied those rumors in May during an interview with Howard Stern.
A similar story of The national investigator claimed that Joy Behar was about to leave View because of McCain – even more believable given his constant clashes with the show‘s resident Republican. However, Behar has said she will stay at least until her current contract, which ends in 2022.
While Goldberg denied she was leaving View, she admitted that she didn’t want this to be her entire career or legacy. In July, she was interviewed by The New York Times on several of his businesses outside of the talk show.
“What you are asking is’ Is this View quite?’ It isn’t, “Goldberg said at the time.” Ten years is a long time, and now I’m starting to do something else. I make books. I venture into THC products. I create the clothes. “
Goldberg also acknowledged that View is not as personal and intimate as some viewers choose to believe. She said: “In a way, I play a role. These are not conversations I have with my friends. If they were, we would do it differently. My friends and I can talk about things. in depth in a different way than you can do on TV. “
So far Goldberg has managed to balance View with other projects masterfully, becoming more productive than ever in recent years. Currently, Goldberg has a starring role in CBS’s new limited series All Access, The stall – an adaptation of the classic Stephen King novel of the same name. Goldberg plays Mother Abagail, a somewhat mystical figure bringing together survivors of a devastating plague and leading them to an uncertain future.
Goldberg has more projects on the horizon and more talk about View to come. New episodes of The stall premieres Thursdays on CBS All Access, with the finale on February 11, 2021.
