Should Whoopi Goldberg leave The View?

I'm tired of her always making excuses for celebrities and think it's time for a new host. Does anyone else feel the same way? Take my poll, please.

She really is getting on my nerves. The only time I felt proud of her was when she walked out on O'Reilly and when she got mad at the New York Times. WHOOPIE! BE A BITCH! SPEAK YOUR MIND!

Why should she leave? Because she tries to look at all sides and just doesn't pile on with the rest of you viscous bitches? I will always support someone who is as pro-gay and is as liberal as Whoopi. And you know what, she was right about Michael Vick. She was also right about Roman Polanski. You all claim to be sooooo fucking liberal. Please. You're a bunch of prudes acting like you're at a republican ladies' tea.

Why should she leave? It's a talk show, she talks. I don't agree with her a lot of the time but it would be a damn boring show if I sat there watching and agreeing with everything said and everyone on the show agreed with each other. Personally I agree with a poster here, or on another thread, that she sometimes just plays the devil's advocate to get a conversation/confrontation going. And even though I do not always agree, I do appreciate how she doesn't jump to snap decisions on a lot of things simply because of the way something is present in the media. Like she's said many times, the public, including herself, does not always have all the facts, just the sensationalism.

I don't watch The View- DL is my source for all Whoopi news- but what I am gathering by how Whoopi is constantly trying to stir something up is that the woman is desperate for attention. She must be one needy bitch.

Say what you will about Rosie- I never got the impression that when she gave her opinion she was calculating how much press it would get her. She didn't give a tuppenny fuck.

Whoopi is always talking about not having enough money, yet her stupid opinions and big mouth gets her into trouble. After her "rape-rape" statement, she lost a "Toys 'R US" account and also got booted from "T-Mobile." Now she's really fallen on hard promotional times and is hawking "Poise". Let's see how long that lasts.

She's done damage to her image by her consistently stupid opinions. "The View" might have given her cash but there's been a price.

I have known David Claessen, one of Whoopi's ex-husbands for a LONG time. She is a major bitch and an egomaniac. When they divorced (because she is a dyke) she publicly slandered him, saying all he did was use her and her money. He is a major sweetheart and was crushed by the allegations. He has gone on to a successful career in cinematography, despite everything she did in Hollywood to stop him. And he's never uttered a peep to the media about her. She is a crazy bitch.

r29, Whoopi basically used HIM to get publicity, citing their nuptials for press.. He did not know she was a dyke. He doesn't say much, just that it turned out to be a very unpleasant experience, She actually paid him to go away once the divorce was final, then went on to try and wreck his career. They slept together only a few times in their brief time (2-3?) years together. He's never said who the women were in her life, at least not to me. No pre-nup, and he asked for nothing. Like I said, she gave him a settlement to go away. He did not need the money. She is apparently a master at manipulating PR around her image, but is a total bitch.

Given what I know, there must be some EPIC battles that go with Walters and Lizbitch.

I think she should pull a Franco and try graduate school, homoerotic short films, bad short fiction, derivative art installations, reediting her film career in a class setting, maybe using the outtakes from Last Days to create two new films, playing a character named Goldberg on a soap and cutting off her own arm in a cave.

Kudos on being a revolting human being, r70.

Whoopi's biggest problem is she clearly thinks 70% of what goes on on The View is beneath her. How many seasons did she cut up rough every time they discussed reality television?

Behar's just been on the show too long, and also clearly prefers her late night talk show. Also, she's about a year-and-a-half away from technically be in the same "age cohort" as Barbara.

Hasselback is noxious, but serves her purpose. And she's infinitely preferable to all the other professional lady conservatives (if only because she is more stupid than evil, and is often pretty tractable.)

I bet Barbara and Geddes are kicking themselves for choosing Shepherd when they probably could have had Wendy Williams.

Sherri's there only because that genteel racist cunt Baba Wawa doesn't want a smart, confident, and attractive Black woman who'll stand up to the BS that Wawa and her asshole producer come up with. Among all the Black women who auditioned for the part, I refuse to believe that they were unable to find a single woman more qualified and intelligent than that idiot Sherri.

I watch "The View" every day, or at least the Hot Topics segment and I have since before Whoopi was on. I have never seen her make excuses for any celebrity. She does however, suggest maybe the public does not know all the facts, only what the media is putting out there. She has never condoned any bad behavior, not Vick, not Gibson, not Tiger, not Weiner... she just says there is always more to what's going on than we know. Plus a lot of the time I think she is playing devil's advocate. If all 5 of the women up there agreed on everything topic it would be a very boring show. (Yeah I know, I know, you think it's boring... don't care, I still like it). But I do agree with a previous poster, I'd be happy too if I never heard her valley speak again. It annoys me too.

Not only white girls use "Valley Girl speak". A friend's 25 year old son talks like a Valley Boy, he's Puerto Rican, grew up in Queens and went to school in Manhattan!

Gabourey Sibide has always sounded like a Valley Girl. The Valley Girl voice is simply an affectation due to where a person grew up and/or attended school.

IIRC, Sibede went to a private school in Manhattan. That explains her speaking voice.

She appears so disinterested during the guest/interview on the couch segments. Why the hell is she there? She hardly ever asks a question.

Kevin Frazier on "The Insider" is almost as bad. Yesterday, he finished two different stories saying, essentially, these guys aren't bad, they're friends of mine. One of them, Terrell Owens, was on Dr. Phil talking about his four different kids with four different women. Frazier said for the audience not to judge him and if they see him on the street, give him a hug.

I was watching THE VIEW the other day and I had , what one might call, a morbid thought

they're all going to die at some point but who's going first?

and then I wondered how it all might play out

I think It could be a toss up between Whoopi and Joy. I'd think cancer.But then Whoopi I could also see living to to be over hundred , still performing in a nursing home as Fontaine at 103 until she feel and broke her hip, towards the end she was Fontaine (and kind of Bea lillie mad-Fontaine liked to expose his non existent junk to the young nurses)

I also see Walters to live to a rip old age but "bedridden" rewatching her old interviews save for the occasional "exclusive" such as when a British heir to o the throne comes out

Elisabeth will be the obvious "Survivor" but I think she will at some point undergo a life crisis dealing with a family member which causes a political crisis of faith and she'll end up the grand old broad of the conservative Democrats

Sherry will get fat.Think diabetes will kill her

Anywone, especially a female, who makes light of Roman Polanski's rape of a child, should be slapped. When she made that RAPE-RAPE comment, I immediately disliked her as a person. I don't hate her because hate is such a strong word. I just can't believe an adult woman would try to side with Polanski, who is a complete monster of a human being.

Not only did she defend pedophile Polanski, but she defended dog abuser Michael Vick, homophope Tracy Morgan, anti-semite Mel Gibson, and also Michael Jackson. What is wrong with her?

Well if the rumors are true the only View co-host coming back for sure next year is Nicole Wallace. It seems Rosie Perez is a goner for sure none of the producers are happy with her performance. Wallace has tested well with fans but she's not ready to be the 'senior host' on the panel so the struggle the producers are facing is sticking with Rosie O'Donnell or Whoopi but not both. They are going to cut one of them out because they're not playing well together. Rosie O. only signed a one year deal and it's believed she's frustrated and won't renew her contract if Whoopi returns. Whoopi has three years left on her contract but network has a clause (as they do with all on air talent) to release her from the contract if they so choose. Whoopi has been out for over a week with a bad back and some producers have noticed the positive response from a large chunk of fans having Rosie O. as the moderator.

I want Whoopi to stay and do not WANT a 'lighter mood'. There's more than enough superficial, middle-of-the-road mush pablum thinking for the masses during daytime TV. I don't want to hear a bunch of women playing into the idea they're only capable of banality and discussions about pantyhose. Housefraus and old trolls have plenty of other channels to turn to in order to hear their celebrity gossip, silly banter, and melodrama. The GOOD thing about Whoopi is she DOES add weight or gravitus to that ring of airheads and pearl clutchers she's currently surrounded by. I do wish she'd get her damned spine back, but it appears to be literally causing her problems now (hey, new chairs maybe? or are the producers trustafarian idiots too? "What will America think OF THE CHAIRS?!").

Rosie, otoh, plays the SJW with a sense of humour but the fact is with TWO female comedians up there, they should be able to take the sting out of heavier topics AND work off each others comedy style. Instead, they're being pitted against each other as intellectual heavyweights, and NONE of them are that. There's maybe two people on the entirety of the communications spectrum who can claim that anyway. But it's no reason to focus on hair products and spanks.

R240, I agree with much of what you said. It's just a shame that two of the most well known standup comed ians aren't using their comedy inside the socio-political topics like Carlin or, gulp, Mahr. Mahr is seen as funny AND intelligent whereas the Views producers seem to have fostered an either/or vibe with the women. When Joy was on the show, she added wit, sometimes stinging, to the crew. The momentum they initially picked up then was undermined by that frigid Elizabeth cunt. If they had booted her much, much sooner and brought Rosie back right away or allowed Whoopi to be more humorous, no one would've noticed Barbara leaving. Hmm, maybe that was behind it LOL

looks like ABC is about to cancel the show because, among other things:

An insider reportedly told TMZ that Rosie O'Donnell is "impossible to deal with"...

by Anonymousreply 24201/14/2015

Rosie's always been severely mental, and The View should have been cancelled yrs ago.

The View will be cancelled and be replaced with a 3rd hour of GMA!

Whoopi Goldberg is back, and she's higher than a fucking kite on her "pain meds." She's an even bigger ass than she normally is.

by Anonymousreply 24501/20/2015

The loud cackling and shouting on the show today is unbelievable. Is Whoopi sharing those meds?

by Anonymousreply 24601/20/2015

They have given her a welcome back fit for Julius Caesar. She isn't going anywhere anytime soon. Unfortunately. I was thinking the same thing, r245. I half expected her to announce that she's a PEPPA!.

R245, did she fight with Rosie today?

by Anonymousreply 24801/20/2015

I didn't watch it from the start today but tuned in half way through. I like Rosie. The band they have today is great.

I am enjoying the show, hope they don't cancel.

by Anonymousreply 24901/20/2015

Not r245. She took on Rogen and Moore. I agreed with what she said but she was waaay over the top in her outrage. I can't for the life of me figure out how she won an Oscar. She's a crappy actress. She and Rosie are playing nice. For now. RO does look nervous though.

by Anonymousreply 25001/20/2015

You post that same insider scoop on every thread about The View, r242. What about the rumor that Rosie Perez was fired? For being even more difficult to deal with?

I think when people get older, they lose their ability to make jokes, everything seems so serious, so sad, nothing's funny anymore.

Did Whoopie have surgery or something?

by Anonymousreply 25301/20/2015

I haven't watched the show in years but maybe I should?

Was Rogen on the show, why?

by Anonymousreply 25401/20/2015

Rogen wasn't on the show but he made a statement linking American Sniper with the Nazis. Google it. I don't know his exact words but he just needs to shut his hypocritical piehole. Moore took the opportunity to get press for himself by shitting on the movie as well. Of course, Rogen had no problem creaming over the Mossad in his movie Knocked Up. Which he co-wrote. I bet he's never even been to Is-h-rael.

Oh, stuff it, r252. I worked with the elderly for many, many years. They made me laugh every day. It was a joy to go to work and take care of people who were still so full of life and love and humor. You sound like an utter bore.

yes she is discusting ,she ruins morning television ,she acts like a low life ,unpleasant to be around and watch with your morning coffee ,barbara must of been nuts to hire her .the whole crew needs to be replaced ,but whoppi especially .

Goldberg is rude crude and ugggly. Her mouth needs to go away fast!!! And her face and sense of fashion is on another planet, where she needs to go asap!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I like Whoopi. I watch because of her.

Nobody is even going to watch if they get rid of her. You're retarded if you think people are going to tune in to that spanish lady who doesn't shower every day.

What other big names can they get for this show? If no big names, then forget it. I sure ain't gonna tune in for some reality show whores.

I don't think she was always an asshole; just the last five or six years. She should have been dumped as soon as she was no longer funny and unable to contribute anything that displayed at least a modicum of intelligence.

by Anonymousreply 26102/18/2015

Any plans Whoopi had for leaving The View are now apparently blocked.

by Anonymousreply 26202/18/2015

The show has been great this week. Frankly there seems to be a better flow and less tension. I also notice folks helping Rosie Perez. I am a fan again.

For me the chemistry was off because of Rosie. It was not anything she was doing. It was just the way it felt to me.

I've mentioned this before. Goldberg is one of the most well liked people on daytime television. In 2014 she had the 3rd highest Q score in daytime television. Ellen Degeneres had the highest and The Chew's Michael Symon had the 2nd highest. (Both scored 30 in likeability). Goldberg scored a 23 in likeablility. She ranks 2nd only to Oprah Winfrey in awareness.

by Anonymousreply 26402/18/2015

Are these people watching with the sound and picture off, r264? She is not likable by a long shot. She is a bloviating asshole who turns every discussion into some half-assed lecture about the nature of "the business". Taraji P. Henson was on the show and WG was so unbelievably condescending and phony towards her when it was obvious that WG is pea green with envy over that juicy role that TPH KILLS on Empire.. And yet here was WG going on and on about how TPH has been around FOREVER but is just now getting the recognition she deserves. And how touched that makes her, WG, feel. Bitch! The woman was nominated for an Oscar! And then today I read that WG is trying to get on Empire. Don't do it Lee Daniels! You don't need that mess on your show! Fuck her and her not so subtle digs at my girl. A woman who acts rings around that Jabba the Mutt looking homeless bag lady. And fuck her clown shoes, too!

by Anonymousreply 26502/18/2015

Through the decades, I've gone from being a fan to meh to active dislike.

The "meh" phase was from a time where I think she might have been making herself edgy. That I can respect.

The "active dislike" phase came from her time on "The View." I kind of think that if Whoopi was interviewing Charles Manson, she'd be deferential and let him know that she kind of understands why he did the things that he did, and she'd gladly endorse whatever show-biz project he was there to endorse.

Taraji Henson has started landing TV roles in the 1990's. She had her first leading film role in 2001. Benjamin Buttons was in 2008. So, yes she really has been around forever and unlike it does for some; her Academy Award nomination failed to launch her into the stratosphere. What Goldberg said was absolutely correct. Those weren't digs; those were the facts.

[quote]She is a bloviating asshole who turns every discussion into some half-assed lecture about the nature of "the business".

Goldberg is a 30+ year veteran of the "business". She is an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony winner. She probably knows the nature of the business pretty well.

[quote]Are these people watching with the sound and picture off,She is not likable by a long shot.

Keep in mind that she only needs to be likeable for the show's target audience, which would be women.

Christ, you are as tiresome as she is, r267. I watched the show. I know what I saw and heard. She was giving TPH backhanded "compliments" and put the woman on the spot. Who the fuck cares how long she's been around? She is KILLING it on Empire. Right now. You sound like a publicist. Or an agent. Do yourself a favor and take some of that money Whoopie is paying you and buy a sense of humor. You sound as self-important and pretentious as your client;)

Yeah right I'm a publicist who gets paid big bucks to post on Datalounge because the opinions of a handful of 70 yr old queens can make or break my clients. Oh well you figured me out. You're an absolute genius. You should probably rest your genius brain now. Don't want to over do it.

Whoopie will be there to the end. And there's no doubt that it will be cancelled at the end of this season.

She'll never again get such an easy job at such a good salary. Her 'tude for the past five years has helped it go downhill to cancellation.

Whoopi has changed. She's generally not funny and she's hard to watch. Worst of all, she's lost any credibility she had by consistently and irrationally defending every showbiz low-life from Michael Jackson to Mel Gibson. When she started out in her career, she seemed to speak for the poor and those without a voice. Now, she's become just another Hollywood PR hack defending entitled celebrities.

As far as The View, I think Joy said it best, "Who cares? What difference does it make?"

Really, r277? So he lived with Goldberg all those years as a platonic friend? He seems more Walker than Beard but that doesn't make him gay.

Today they were discussing the Kylie Jenner Challenge. Kylie issued a half-assed statement saying she doesn't want young girls to emulate her looks. They should develop their own individual style. And believe me, I'm making her sound alot smarter than she really is. Strange since she tries her best to look like Kim. Anyway, three of the women on the panel were outraged at Kylie's lack of clarity and said she should have told these idiots to stop what they are doing before they seriously hurt or disfiigure themselves. Whoopie was the only one to defend Kylie for copping out. Big surprise. The other women were clearly annoyed with Whoopie. Oh, and her butt ugly daughter was on the show. And had absolutely nothing of interest to say other than HER reality show airs this summer. WTF? When did Whoopie suddenly morph into Sharon Osbourne? Pawning off her putrid spawn on an unsuspecting public. I guess she's going to squeeze every opportunity she can out of her last year on The View. The second coming of Fatty Starbuckle. Oh, goody.
