    Congratulations to Whoopi but greater congratulations to “The View” on wisely choosing during very important times ahead!

    Terrible choice!!! I’m done with that show, bad enough Barbara is such an “old lady” now, says some pretty stupid things and pretty full of herself. Whoopi has nothing to contribute, no personality. I give the show one more season.

    wonderful choice! If you’ve ever seen Whoopi’s comedy live, you would know her insightful edgy humor. Bring it on!

  • remember da truth

    Whoopi Goldberg no personality?!?! Seriously? WHOOPI GOLDBERG?
    When posters say such truly stupid things, and reveal their ignorance, it just makes you wonder how they survive in real life.

    I still think The View is a show worth missing, but Whoopi is a great choice. I like the idea of her being part of it, but I still can’t bring myself to watch a group of women yakking. I might as well sit in the lunchroom of any office building and stare at a group sitting around one of the tables.

    Whoppi has experience she’s has been around awhile..I think its a wonderful choice..needs some diversity …thats whoopi if donald trump , cher , eddie murphy can get away with that..she can she has been looking like that this far…why change

  • HottieTottie

    The entire show is nothing but bullsh!t. Inmates and the infirmed are the only ones tuning in.

    The show is going to make people mad, interested and happy, Whoopi will be a great new person to the show, It was apparent that Rosie was tired of the show and that was just her way of moving on, there was no way that she could have stayed on the show by doing what she was doing, she knew that, it was just a big huge exit.

    Whoopi is going to be pretty amazing also, in the spot of Rosie, Different oh for sure, but just as interesting.
