Because she's not funny.
No... wait ... That would seem to make her a perfect fit.
I meant as a regular...back when she did her one woman show with all those characters...she'd have seemed a natural.
People claim Tom Cruise has never conquered his dyslexia with his religion so he couldn't read the teleprompter. Maybe Whoopi has similar problems. Does she keep her own notes while on The View? You can tell she doesn't really read much by the dumb shit she spews.
She has nothing to promote? She hasn't starred in a major motion picture in years.
Maybe because she thinks her turds don't stink?
Because they have white men on the cast who are more than capable of playing black women.
No one ever asked her.
No, OP means as a cast member back when she was performing, not as a guest host.
Why the fuck would she want to be on that useless piece of crap? Her Broadway debut was directed by Mike Nichols and then she went into The Color Purple not long after. Why would she need to be the member of an ensemble where she would have to fight for screen time and get no respect. There had never been a black female star on SNL because they'd rather throw a wig on Garret or Kenan and call it a night, that's how important black women are to them.
Debra Wilson #damn funny
What did Whoopi do pre-Broadway? She must have been doing her characters somewhere for Mike Nichols to discover her.
(Yes and I see now that she went right from Bway into The Color Purple.)
Because she isn't funny.
She always looks like she smells bad.
"There had never been a black female star on SNL"
I guess they were never really used that much r18....Vance was only on 1 year I think.
"We don't know. We're not there. We don't know who did what to who... or who did where to what..."

If it's good enough for Tyler Perry...
1) She's a bitch
2) She's black
3) She's a bitch
4) She's a woman
5) She's a bitch
6) She's ugly
7) She's a bitch
8) Even Jean Stapleton called her a bitch
9) She's a bitch
10) In case I forgot to mention...SHE'S A BITCH
Because it takes Whoopi forever to say anything.
Some people are still uptight because Ted Dansen fcked her.
As pathetic as John Travolta is as a human being, I have to say he was one of the most hilarious guest hosts I ever saw.
Because she can't read cards or teleprompters. Dyslexia or uneducated? Tammy Cruise's dyslexia made it so he can't host SNL.
She had a cameo in the latest one with Justin Bieber.
Lots of famous people haven't OP. Why are you zeroing in on Whoopi?
Jim Carrey actually auditioned as a cast member and was rejected. So was Paul Reubens.
Whoopi was never a stand up comic, she did a "show" characters - her broadway show landed her straight into shitty movies so she bypassed the snl route.
Some of these comments are hilarious. Does anyone remember Whoopi was once a regular on Hollywood Fucking Squares?
Whoopi is horribly overrated.
Her getting an Oscar was a bigger joke Than Marissa Tomei getting an Oscar.
I have always liked Whoopi. She's taken steps to educate herself that few others in show business have bothered to do. She's a college graduate and does her own thinking. I may not always agree with her, but she's a woman worthy of respect. I really dislike seeing all the disparaging remarks here on DL.
How come? Because maybe there's a God after all.
Can someone start a thread on how AnnE made a fool of herself at the BAFTA's last night.
This article could have been lifted from Datalounge!
A black woman taking on the faux name of "Goldberg" tells you all you need to know about her awareness of the black servant/wealthy jew dynamic and it is all you need to know about her private torments. Yawners. So tired, yawn.
