Look, here’s the thing. I hope you all realize that anytime I bring up The View around here, it’s because something really, legitimately important happened. Like the time Prince showed in bright-ass yellow pants, or when there were rumors they were sh*tcanning Elisabeth Hasselbeck for being “too conservative.” I don’t care about the show, and I assume most of you don’t either, so I’m going to going ahead and keep filtering those stories out your lives until something amazing happens.
This is one of those times.
You see, Us Weekly caught up with The View co-host Whoopi Goldberg recently to ask her about the vacancies on the show now that Joy Behar left and Elisabeth Hasselbeck might be leaving. The result was pure Keeping It Real As F*ck gold.
“Let me tell you this about The View: I take a paycheck every other week. That’s all I do. I could give a sh-t what comes. I do my job — I have a contract. That’s where I stand. I don’t give a f-ck,” Goldberg said.
When producers announce replacements for Hasselbeck and Joy Behar (the co-host recently announced she’s leaving the program after 16 years), Goldberg promised she will be courteous as ever. “I try to,” she said. “Whatever y’all want. Just make sure my check doesn’t bounce!”
Goldberg added that she’s not involved in any casting decisions. “I don’t care. That’s not my job,” she explained. “My job is to show up and be cute by 11 o’clock and get the f-ck off that show by 12. And that’s what I try to do.”
You’re all right with me, Whoopi Goldbird.
