For Whoopi Goldberg to return to The View after this season, she is demanding some pretty hefty items. ABC wants her to stay for another 3 seasons, but Goldgerg insists that will only happen if her salary gets bumped up to $3.5million, she gets an executive producer title, and an ABC executive gets removed from the show.
A source told DailyMail.com
‘She wants this one ABC executive off the show. She blames this person for trying to turn The View into Good Morning America with the rotating hosts and contributors and doesn’t want that exec involved in the show any more,’ the source revealed.
Goldberg and The View have been experiencing a roulette wheel of co-hosts and panelists that have sent her over the edge. Ratings were also tanking because of the instability and chemistry of the co-hosts.
But after years of fill-ins, The View appears to have finally settled on its core five: Golberg, original co-host Joy Behar, Sunny Hostin, Sara Haines and Jedediah Bila.
But with such audacious demands, Goldberg might find herself unemployed.
Check out Goldberg’s interview with The Wendy Williams Show where she the talks more about her take-it-or-leave-it approach.
