Whoopi Goldberg, who has been married and divorced three times, wants her fans to know that even though she is single, she isn't lonely. She was a guest on The Tamron Hall Show on Monday, and the 64-year-old host of The View was very candid about how she enjoys her space and her independence.
"“People keep saying 'Well, you’ll find somebody.' I’m not looking for anyone. I am very happy. I don’t want to live with anybody. I have a cat. A 20-year-old cat who is attitudinal. So he will leave little treats for anybody that’s not me in the bed."
She Isn't Looking To Change That
Honestly, who hasn't related to that feeling at one point or another? Goldberg continued, explaining that it wasn't really her cat "blocking" her.
"I’m blocking. But I know what he will do if I bring somebody in. For me, there is a commitment. When you make a commitment to someone else, it’s a commitment to ask their opinion and listen and work it out with them. I don’t want to do that. I don’t want to share money. I know it’s terrible, but I don’t want to do it."
This Isn't A New Attitude
"I’m much happier on my own. I can spend as much time with somebody as I want to spend, but I’m not looking to be with somebody forever or live with someone. I don’t want somebody in my house. I’m the round peg, and marriage is the square hole. You can’t have a square hole, can you?"
She Still Loves 'The View
Besides, Goldberg is busy with her job on The View anyway. Although it seems like the hosts -- particularly Goldberg and Meghan McCain -- are constantly at odds, Goldberg insists that there isn't any bad blood behind the scenes. She told Seth Meyers on Late Night:
"I've been there for almost 10 years; everyone has what they need to do, and folks, when it's women, they say, 'You know, they're fighting,' if we were fighting, you'd actually know it. Okay?
We're not like, 'Stop it, you're so mean to me.' We will slap you into next week. So if we were truly fighting, there would be issues. You know, it is living with other people who aren't you; they think differently, they want to say different stuff. I figure that's okay — they're trying to do their gig too, because after all, this is our day job, where they're paying us for our opinions, so that's what we do."
