Whoopi Goldberg said she doesn’t care who replaces her co-hosts on The View.
Although big changes are in store for viewers of the daytime chat program, it would appear that Goldberg isn’t too concerned about who will join the show once her co-hosts have vacated their respective positions.
Whoopi Goldberg explained that she doesn’t spend too much time worrying about reports that Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Joy Behar are leaving the show. When it comes to their replacements, the comedienne said she doesn’t give “f***” about who producers bring on-board.
“I take a paycheck every other week. That’s all I do. I could give a s*** what comes. I do my job — I have a contract. That’s where I stand. I don’t give a f***,” she recently told Us Weekly.
Whoopi Goldberg added, “I don’t care [about casting decisions]. That’s not my job. My job is to show up and be cute by 11 o’clock and get the f*** off that show by 12. And that’s what I try to do. Whatever y’all want. Just make sure my check doesn’t bounce.”
While Joy Behar’s departure from The View has been confirmed, there’s been no official confirmation that Elisabeth Hasselbeck is leaving the talk show. However, rumors have surfaced that she could head over to CNN should she decide to part ways with the program.
“We hear CNN honcho Jeff Zucker is interested in seeing her join his cable channel,” a source explained to Perez Hilton. As with most reports from this particular website, it’s best to take the information with a grain of salt.
As for who will replace the hosts, Whoopi Goldberg said she isn’t too concerned about the situation at the moment.
“I think it’s the only way to keep your sanity because these are not decisions that I get to make. It ain’t my show. It’s Barbara’s show,” the actress said.
