Whoopi Goldberg: 'I don't care' who gets casted on 'The View'

By Danielle Fredette,

The View's Whoopi Goldberg attended the Vanity Fair party in New York City on Tuesday, April 16, where she spoke to Us Weekly about the show's casting decisions.

Amidst reports that co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck has been fired from The View along with Joy Behar's announcement that she is leaving, 57-year-old Goldberg says that she has no interest in who will be chosen to replace them.

Goldberg told Us Weekly, "Let me tell you this about The View: I take a paycheck every other week. That's all I do. I could give a sh-t what comes. I do my job -- I have a contract. That's where I stand. I don't give a f-ck."

However, she says that when her new co-hosts are chosen, she will be respectful and accepting of them. "I try to. Whatever y'all want. Just make sure my check doesn't bounce!"

Goldberg went on to say that she plays no part in the casting decisions, telling Us, "I don't care. That's not my job. My job is to show up and be cute by 11 o'clock and get the f-ck off that show by 12. And that's what I try to do."

Lastly, Goldberg revealed that she tries not to listen when potential replacements are discussed, stating, "I think it's the only way to keep your sanity because these are not decisions that I get to make. It ain't my show. It's Barbara's show."
