Whoopi Goldberg Makes Announcement About ‘New Member’ of ‘The View’


It came on Friday when the actress, comedian and EGOT winner announced that there would be a “new man behind the camera.”

“We got a new man behind the camera. Hey Paul,” she said before the other hosts joined in unison saying “Hi, Paul.”

It was last Thursday when Goldberg announced the departure of the show’s producer, Rob Bruce Baron.

“Rob is retiring today after 40 years in television. Rob has been with The View since Day 1, 26 seasons,” she said. “He started his career as a 15-year-old production assistant on the 1968 Chicago democratic convention.”

“And he was a voice-over actor. In his spare time, he owns and operates an alpaca farm with 70 alpacas,” Goldberg said.

“When they moved us over here, we used to be in another building. They had removed everybody. And I begged him to come over and be here, because I was afraid to be here by myself. I didn’t know who was going to be here, what was going to happen. He said okay. So he’s retiring today, because there’s other stuff for him to do. So, you know, we just wanted to say we love you and …” she said before someone on the panel shouted “Don’t leave!”

“I know rob wants to spend more time with his alpacas, but I feel as though I’m married to the guy. We’ve been together as long as I know my husband almost, you know. Not quite, but a long time,” cohost Joy Behar said.

A video is circulating the Internet showing “The View” cohost Joy Behar talking about when she was fired from the show.

What she said about the time she was fired from the show caused he cohost Whoopi Goldberg to be offended.

“I always have friends where I work, and if I don’t have friends at the job, I will not keep the job. So, when I was fired last time from this show, people say to me, ‘Were you OK with that?’ And my answer is, I was happy, because all my friends had left already. So, there was no reason to stay anymore. I mean it,” Behar said.

Goldberg, who was on the show when Behar was fired in 2013, faked a quivering lip and a cry and said “Really? All your friends left? It’s OK. I’m cool.”“You had just come on, and my backstage friends had left. And I don’t like to work when I don’t have friends,” Behar said.

CinemaBlend reported.

Whoopi Goldberg joined as moderator in 2007, replacing Rosie O’Donnell, so the assertion that she’d “just” come on six years earlier is all relative, considering Joy Behar was one of the original co-hosts on the show when it was created by the late Barbara Walters in 1997. She was also surely trying to downplay her comment, as she also said she was talking about the people backstage, who presumably had built a strong friendship with Behar since the earlier days of The View.

Alyssa Farah Griffin jumped to Joy Behar’s defense, explaining to the audience that there are so many people behind the scenes that the audience doesn’t see. They’re the ones who get the real tea, Griffin said, as Behar joked that they’re also the ones who “better keep their mouths shut.”

Last week Goldberg grabbed headlines when she claimed “American Idol” contributed to the “beginning of the downfall of society,” which led to her arguing with executive producer Brian Teta and some pushback from her own colleagues.
The conversation began when Goldberg kicked off a segment detailing 18-year-old Hawaii-born singer Iam Tongi winning Season 21 of the show.

“We, as a society, love to watch stuff to judge folks,” Goldberg said. “You know, I’ve always thought that the beginning of the downfall of society was with ― what’s the name of that show? I always tell you that,” she continued, looking over to Teta.

“ABC’s ‘American Idol,’” replied Teta before the audience let out a laugh. ABC notably is also the network that airs “The View.”
