Is Whoopi Goldberg moving on?! The television host hinted that she’s planning to leave ‘The View’ after working on the hit talk show for 20 seasons. So what’s the reason behind her grand departure? She’s got ‘stuff to do!’ We’re spilling all the tea here!
It may be the end of an era. Whoopi Goldberg, 60, revealed she may be ready to bid-adieu to her longstanding stint on The View. The comedian stopped by The Wendy Williams show on Sept. 23 and was questioned about her upcoming plans with the day time talk show. “So in September, when everyone comes back for the new season, you might not be there,” Wendy asked. While we expected Whoopi to slam down the rumors, she confessed, “No, probably not!” She continued, “I have to do it, baby. Because I have to go and grow. I’ve got stuff to do. I’ve got movies I need to direct, I got books I gotta finish.” Sounds like she’s got an epic plan in the works!
Even though some fans could speculate she’s making her exit over some bad blood, it seems Whoopi has nothing but nice things to say about her comrades. “It was great, and I love doing it, but you know, it’s been a while. You know, they’re in their twentieth season. They did this without me, I’ve been here for half of it but not all of it.” Aww!
We can’t imagine what the show would be like without Whoopi’s input, as she always keeps it real! Raven Simone was also rumored to be leaving in Aug., so who know’s what’s in store after all of these possible changes! Whoopi previously agreed to a one-year deal in May, where she’d work though season 20 for a staggering $2.5 million. But her time may be up!
Whoopi has certainly created a legacy for herself, so we’re sure she’ll be missed if she decides to go through with leaving The View. However, it’s pretty cool that she wants to go live out even more of her dreams in this next chapter of life!
