Whoopi Goldberg is known for having strong opinions about people and events. In the latest, the talk show panelist bluntly told the press that she doesn’t really care who is going to replace the ultra-conservative co-host, Elisabeth Hasselbeck because they’re not friends.
“Let me tell you this about The View: I take a paycheck every other week. That’s all I do. I could give a s**t what comes. I do my job — I have a contract. That’s where I stand. I don’t give a f**k,” Goldberg told Us Weekly at Vanity Fair’s Tribeca Film Festival party on Tuesday.
Rumor has it that Elisabeth could be leaving the show. This means a replacement is needed.
Whoopi doesn’t care who it’ll be though, saying she’s there for the money.
“Whatever y’all want. Just make sure my check doesn’t bounce!” said 57-year-old Goldberg.
“I don’t care. That’s not my job… My job is to show up and be cute by 11 o’clock and get the f**k off that show by 12. And that’s what I try to do.”
And you won’t find Whoopi publicly speculating about who’s the front-runner.
“I think it’s the only way to keep your sanity because these are not decisions that I get to make,” she told Us. “It ain’t my show. It’s Barbara’s show.”
But we did hear that actress Brooke Shields is being considered to fill the spot.
On top of all of that gossip, there’s word that Barbara Walters may retire next year.
