Say It Isn’t So! Whoopi Goldberg Announces her Plans

On Friday, September 23rd, The View cohost, Whoopi Goldberg announced on The Wendy Williams Show that she will not be returning next season.

“I have to do it, baby, because I have to go and grow,” Goldberg said of thoughts on exiting after this season. “I got stuff to do. I got movies I need to direct.I got books I got to finish.”

Whoopi, who first appeared on the show in 2005 said, “This was great and I love doing it, but it’s been awhile and they’re in their 20th season. They did this without me.”

In August, The View announced Sara Haines had joined as new co-host of show, alongside Goldberg, Joy Behar, Candace Cameron Bure, Paula Faris and Raven-Symoné, all of whom returned this season. It marked one of the least dramatic season-to-season panelist sweep-outs of the topical daytime show’s past few seasons.
Let’s hope things change and Miss Goldberg reconsiders! We love you Whoopi!
