Is Whoopi Goldberg leaving The View? Recently, the co-host said she is leaving the ABC talk show after its current season, EW reports.
Goldberg has been on The View since 2007. She’s one of the longest-running co-hosts to serve on the daytime series besides former and fellow castmates Barbara Walters, Joy Behar, Meredith Vieira, and Star Jones.
On a recent episode on The Wendy Williams Show, Goldberg says this season will probably be her last:
I have to do it, baby, because I have to go and grow. I got stuff to do, I got movies I need to direct, I got books I got to finish. This was great and I love doing it, but it’s been awhile and they’re in their 20th season, they did this without me. I’ve been here for half of it, but not all of it.”
I’m not gone yet, so I’m still there now. Don’t worry about it.”
Season 20 of The View debuted earlier this month.

What do you think? Do you watch The View? Would you watch without Whoopi?
I love watching the View and Whoopi makes the show for me. I’ve loved her movies and stand-ups. I would be very disappointed if she left the show.
I watch The View to hear opinions of recent news, but mostly to watch how Whoopi cuts to the chase, pulls people along together, and tells her truth. I have loved her movies, fundraisers, and I look forward to a book or two. She will no-doubt continue to be informed, forthright, funny and inclusive, irreverent and absurd. To thrive, and as a strong role model for women, she’s a person that needs to fly free; not get stagnant. I’m 66, on a journey with cancer, and I recognize the feeling of wanting to give, and needing to step back at… Read more »
I would definitely continue to watch The View without Whoopi. Every day I am annoyed by her interruptions and final words, but I continue to watch because I really enjoy the other hosts. It appears to me that Whoopi feels that she is always right, and that some of the views of her co-hosts are wrong. She tries to come across as an Oprah Winfrey or Maya Angelou; someone people look up to. She’s not of that caliber.
I really left the View years ago because of Whoopi and Joy Behar
Wouldn’t watch without Whoopi.
I love the show with Whoopi and Joy they say it like it is.
I wouldn’t want to watch the show without them.
They have become bleeding heart liberals. I can’t stand Joy B. Cancel the show.
WHEN PEOPLE BECOME SO NARROW MINDED THEY BECOME BLIND….WHOOPI NEEDS TO GO
cancel the show, used to to be entertaining. Nothing but hate coming out of their mouths. plus it used to have different views as it should be not the one sided mockery it has become. For that reason I have stopped watching.
I used to love this show before it became so unbalanced and hateful. They are so mean to anyone with a conservative viewpoint. Not fun anymore.
I no longer watch seems like like no matter what our president does they want to knock him down they think because of who they are that they are right well america voted him in for a reason they should respect that and stop crying over hilary give the man a chance if our last prisedent had done what our current one is doing they would be praising him they are a disgrase
Thank you Whoopi for speaking up for the rest of us!!!!!
It is the only ‘real show’ I know. I watch it everyday and love how genuine and real the people on the show are. I guess some audiences don’t like to hear the TRUTH!!!! Go Whoopi we luv ya, applaud you for speaking your mind and standing up for rest of us. Thank you!!!
I believe that a show that is biased towards towards a certain audience needs to go off the air. People have moral compasses that drive them and it should not be criticized by people who do not share those beliefs. I think Whoopi should leave as well as those that stated they would move to Canada if Trump won the election. How can we take to heart what their opinions are when they don’t follow through with what they say.
This show is so biased against our current president now, its becoming almost like a hate campaign. I don’t watch it anymore. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but let’s give the guy a chance. Millions of people watch this show and this kind of feelings toward our President, in my opinion, is hurting the image of our country. It is now so boring to even turn on the channel because you know their “Hot Topic” is President Trump. Come on girls, act like ladies now.
Make my day Leave the show and the country…You should have never been in charge..You are into only WHOOPI.. Take the VIEW OFF THE AIR.. it is not what Barbra started…
I think The View would gain a few more viewers if she did leave.
