Whoopi Goldberg’s Days NOT “Numbered” At ‘The View,’ Despite Report
Whoopi Goldberg’s days are NOT “numbered,” on “The View,” despite a new report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this claim. We’re unequivocally assured it’s “fiction.”
According to the repeatedly disproven RadarOnline, Goldberg will be “joining Barbara Walters and Rosie O’Donnell in the unemployment line,” and several staffers are supposedly “already celebrating.” The mean-spirited and misguided webloid has a so-called “insider” say, “ABC execs wanted Whoopi gone before Rosie left,” and she’ll be out the door as soon as her “contract is up at the end of May sweeps.”
The outlet further alleges that Goldberg is asking for “more money and [ABC executives] are leveraging that to use against her and are just going to say ‘We are done.’” The webloid’s seemingly ill-informed “insider” claims the network is “not planning to replace [Goldberg] and are going to stay with Joy [Behar] as the main person and Barbara Walters will come back during [this fall’s presidential race].”
Gossip Cop called a number of sources, and an impeccable informant tells us the website’s story is complete “fiction.” But that’s not all. An ABC spokesperson adds, “The incomparable Whoopi Goldberg is a vital part of our show. As moderator, she steers the ship, and we hope Whoopi is here for a long time to come.”
Of course, this is all coming from the same outlet that Gossip Cop busted when it wrongly reported in December 2014 that Barbara Walters was coming back to “The View.” It’s also the same webloid we exclusively corrected when it falsely claimed Gwyneth Paltrow was offered $1 million to join “The View.” Much like those highly and provably inaccurate stories, the latest tale about Goldberg’s days being “numbered” is also untrue.
