Whoopi Goldberg clears the air about her sexuality.
During a recent interview with Raven-Symoné, the EGOT winner clarified that she is “not a lesbian” despite her former The View co-host recalling her giving off “lesbian vibes” during their time on the ABC talk show.
Symoné, who co-hosted The View from June 2015 to October 2016 — recently had Goldberg on her iHeartMedia podcast The Best Podcast Ever with Raven and Miranda. During the chat, the 37-year-old told Goldberg that she wanted to “dig into your business a little bit,” before inquiring about her sexuality.
“Honestly, when I was around you, I loved you so much, like I just wanted to be up underneath the t—- the whole time,” Symoné admitted. “But that’s also because you just kind of gave me lesbian vibes!’”
“You give me lesbian vibes, you give me stud vibes, ” she added.
Symoné’s wife and podcast co-host Miranda Maday noted, “I think this is a secret fantasy of Raven’s. I think she just wants everybody to be gay and she’s just really hoping you’ll come out right here, right now.’”
“So if you want to tell us anything, Whoops, you’re more than welcome to!,” the “That’s So Raven” alum agreed and added.
Goldberg then opened up about the common misconception about her sexuality, sharing, “Women have been asking me this for as long as I’ve been around. I am not a lesbian. But I know lots of them, and I’ve played them on television.”
“But I have always had lesbian friends because they’re just my friends,’” she continued.
Symoné applauded her former costar for openness and how she presents herself.
“Which makes me happy because I can also say, to all those people who judge the lesbian community or the gay community,” she said. “There is something beautiful about a woman being able to embrace their masculine and feminine at the same time and wear it so well, like you do.”
