After the women embraced each other, Goldberg told Walters she’d watched the show once or twice. „I love hanging out with you guys,“ she said. „It’s wonderful, it’s a great opportunity to have some fun.“
Goldberg said she is looking forward to the hot topics segment the most. And the least? „Trying to get in between all everyone talking at one time,“ she said.
The Los Angeles Times reported Friday that Goldberg and frequent guest host Sherri Shepherd were in final negotiations to join the show. A source tells The ShowBuzz that the show was interested in working with Shepherd but an agreement could not be reached.
Goldberg, 51, gives „View“ creator Barbara Walters a big name to replace O’Donnell, who quit the show in May.
In less than a year on the show, the brash O’Donnell was a never-ending source of headlines for her feuds with Donald Trump and co-star Elisabeth Hasselbeck. Despite the near-constant need for 부천 마사지 damage control, ratings shot up.
Goldberg is one of the few performers to earn Emmy, Grammy, Tony and Academy awards in her versatile career.
