Whoopi Goldberg, the talented 68-year-old co-host of “The View,” recently made headlines again with her dramatic exit from the talk show’s set. This time, the heated topic that prompted her departure was none other than foot fetishes!
The surprising incident unfolded during a lively discussion about a Guardian advice column. The column featured a person confessing that their spouse had stopped allowing foot massages due to a revealing fetish revelation. As the hosts delved into this amusing topic, co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin made a comment that sparked Goldberg’s abrupt exit.
Griffin playfully remarked, “You have to entertain your partner’s kink, within reason,” causing Goldberg to stand up and leave the stage. With a humorous instruction to the others to keep talking, Goldberg exited. Griffin took advantage of the moment, jokingly announcing, “Whoopi has left the building.”
When panelist Joy Behar questioned Goldberg’s departure, the 68-year-old, known for her candid reactions, delivered a witty response. Goldberg humorously revealed that she was so captivated by the conversation that she felt the need to take a breath and compose herself.
Goldberg returned with a grin, commenting, “This is what this conversation does to people. It makes them get up and move.” Always ready with a lighthearted remark, she concluded by joking about her own feet, stating, “I don’t care because my feet are huge, and no one wants to touch them!”
This incident is not the first time Goldberg has left the table during a heated discussion on “The View.” Last year, she exited during a debate about Miranda Lambert’s confrontation with fans taking selfies during a concert. Expressing her irritation, Goldberg defended Lambert’s stance on respecting the artist during performances. Challenged by co-host Sunny Hostin, Goldberg stood up, proclaimed, “I’m leaving, y’all!” and proceeded to take selfies with audience members, emphasizing her point.
Goldberg’s candid reactions have become a trademark of her appearances on talk shows. Some might find her exits entertaining, bringing an unexpected and humorous element to the conversation. Others might view them as disruptive, interrupting the flow of the discussion. But regardless of one’s opinion, there’s no denying that Goldberg knows how to make a lasting impression and keep viewers entertained.
