The View co-host Whoopi Goldberg is highly recommended, thanks in part to her impressive list of achievements, including winning an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony over the course of her long career in Hollywood. The icing on the cake of her resume? Whoopi Goldberg is funny, smart and has a wide circle of famous friends who enrich her already interesting life. Despite all this, the Ghost actress is a lonely wolf who prefers to go solo, especially when it comes to her living situation. Whoopi Goldberg first unveiled this juicy clean-up about her personal life in September 2016 when she chatted with The New York Times magazine, “I don’t want somebody in my house”.
Given that living together is quite common, whether it’s a roommate situation or a romantic, it’s fair to say that some people have questions about Goldberg’s headaches about living alone. It turns out that the New York resident has given compelling reasons not to hack.
Whoopi Goldberg is fine all by herself, thanks
Whoopi Goldberg has been married three times in her life and her last marriage ended in 1995. But you don’t have to feel sorry for Whoopi Goldberg – she is more than happy to do her own thing. “I’m much happier on my own,” she said to The New York Times magazine. “I can spend as much time with someone as I want, but I’m not looking to be with someone forever or live with someone,” Goldberg said. “I don’t want anyone in my house.”
Of course, this case goes deeper than Whoopi Goldberg who only wants personal space – it’s about her philosophy of relationships. “Look, people expect you to have a boyfriend. They expect you to get married,” she explained. “So I kept trying to do that, but I didn’t want to share information with anyone else. I didn’t want anyone to ask me why I was doing what I was doing, or make the other person feel better… Then one day I thought: I didn’t have to do this. I don’t have to conform. I was trying to get married, and it wasn’t for me.”
Fair enough, right? Whoopi Goldberg does her own thing and is proud of it. More power for her!
Whoopi Goldberg isn’t aching for physical company
Just because Whoopi Goldberg might shun marriage doesn’t mean her sex life will suffer. For example, take what she said at a December 2015 gig on Watch What Happens Live when she joked about “boning so many people” after her divorce from actor Ted Danson in 1993. The actress’s sex drive hasn’t slowed down since she got older, although nowadays it’s harder for her to find partners. “I’m talking about what’s going on in my head, sex, and the lack of it,” Whoopi Goldberg said on an episode of The Graham Norton Show in October 2018. “And how at a certain age you can’t look at a man without thinking, ‘Too young, too young!’ and I feel bad because I like to ogle!” Hey, at least she’s honest.
That said, even if Whoopi Goldberg finds a sexy paramor to light her fire, it’s unlikely she’ll be persuaded to change her mind about marriage. “When you make a commitment to live with someone else, it’s a commitment to ask their opinion and listen and work it out with them,” she commented on the institution to journalist Tamron Hall in November 2018. “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.”
Although some people may find Goldberg’s attitude strange, she may be on to something because there are plenty of celebrities who lead separate lives outside of their romantic pursuits.
