Whoopi Goldberg Interview – A Day in HER Life
Behind the scenes at The View
I had the opportunity to speak with Whoopi Goldberg at a DIFFA luncheon, a charity she is involved with through her friend, designer and chairman, David Rockwell. Whoopi sits on the board as a trustee where she is helping to raise awareness and fund the fight against AIDS. Whoopi dished on her exact daily schedule and I was entertained by a moment to moment description of her wild, well actually, quite normal mornings leading up to the intense moments we witness daily on The View.
“I wake up at 5 a.m. every day and I read a bit or watch Battlestar Gallactica – which I’m addicted to! I shower, only because people want me to shower.”
“I feed my cat and promptly get into the car at 8:15 a.m.. I futz around the studio and Joy, Elisabeth, Sherri and I head into hair and makeup at 9 a.m.. We all get it done together and we talk about the papers and what we’ve seen. I take four seconds in hair and makeup, so I just sit there and talk to the girls while they get glamorous.”
“I go back to my dressing room at 10 and bug the hell out of my business partner, Tom. I ask inane questions – how long is an ant’s antler? I really do! Right before 11, we go upstairs and hit the stage for the show.”
How long is an ant’s antler?
