Report: Whoopi Goldberg Ready to Bolt From ‘The View’

May 3, 2016  •  Post A Comment

Whoopi Goldberg, who has been one of the few steadying ingredients in the often unstable lineup on the ABC daytime institution “The View,” may be charting her exit strategy.

TheWrap reports that Goldberg has told friends she’s fed up with the show and will leave when her contract runs out at the end of this season. Goldberg has been on the talk show since 2007.

“Whether she really means it or could be persuaded to stay remains to be seen,” the story notes. “Goldberg, 60, is in talks with ABC about extending her contract … . Making noise about leaving is a time-honored tactic used to increase bargaining leverage.”

The report, which cites unnamed insiders, notes that ABC executives want Goldberg back. But according to one source, Raven-Symone, who joined “The View” last year, is unlikely to return.



  1. The View should be cancelled completely. There’s so much politics it annoying. We have cable stations for politics. The Talk is refreshing. No talk of politics and they all have good chemistry. Joy Behar????? why did they bring her back. She’s one of the reasons I stopped watching The View.

  2. Rose O’Donnell might do better without Whoopi around. Ask her back so she can talk about Trump.

  3. I love Whoopi, and hope she stays. Raven is young….she’s learning. I don’t like all the politics either, but what really drives me nuts is that they just get into a subject and they have to go to commercial break. Make the commercial breaks longer and let the women/and men give their “View”

  4. I’m with Sandy !! Can “The View” and move Kelly back to 10am. Then add an hour to GMA.

  5. No Whoopi, no watchee! Tired of revolving chairs – make some decision!!
