Whoopi Goldberg Abruptly Leaves 'The View' Set During Panelists' Discussion About Foot Fetishes

Whoopi Goldberg needed a moment to gather herself while the rest of the ladies discussed foot fetishes during Hot Topics.

via People:

On Tuesday’s episode of the ABC talk show, Goldberg, 68, stepped away from the table as her co-hosts discussed a Guardian advice column in which a man shared that his wife would no longer allow him to give her foot massages after he admitted that he had a fetish. 

“You have to entertain your partner’s kink within reason,” co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin explained, which led Goldberg to need a break from the conversation.

“Excuse me for a second, keep talking,” she said before briefly walking away from the table.

“Whoopi has left the building,” Griffin, 34, joked as Goldberg walked to the side of the stage to hand off a notebook.

Once Goldberg rejoined her co-hosts, the conversation continued with Behar teasing, “You know, not to brag, but my feet have created foot fetishes out there, so I can’t really respond to this because I feel that I’m responsible for the fetishes.”

At the end of the segment, Behar, 81, asked Goldberg why she felt the need to walk away from the table. She then responded, “Because I was so enamored by what you were saying that I felt that I needed to take a breath so I could just get myself together so I could come back to the table.”

“This is what this conversation does to people. It makes them get up and move. I don’t care, because my feet are huge, and no one wants to touch them,” she added.

This is not the first time that feet have become a topic of conversation on the show.

Last month, comedian Matt Rogers recalled a hilarious memory of when he was on the same flight back from the Bahamas as some of the ABC talk show’s hosts. 

“You guys were in the first row,” Rogers said before turning to Behar, “You were barefoot on that plane.”

Rogers added, “I said I respect it,” and Behar then stated defensively, “I wasn’t walking around though.” 

In September, Matthew McConaughey gave Behar a foot rub on air. As fans may remember the duo went viral in 2006 for the same reason.

After a flashback clip of the incident played, Behar described the massage as a “highlight” of her life and pulled her foot out onto the Hot Topics table while coyly adding, “It so happens I got a pedicure this week.”

The View co-hosts also put their feet on the table and for all to see in February 2022. The group discussed their respective rankings on wikiFeet, a website that’s dedicated to ranking celebrity feet and toes.

This is such a non-story. I watched the episode and she got up to pass a book to someone in the audience. Then she returned to her seat.

The real story we should be discussing is the Hot Topics segment in the same episode, when, per usual Whoopi and Joy were dismissive towards Sunny when she brought up younger voters who are angry at president Biden over his stance and silence around the Israel-Hamas war.

They're not looking at the potential situation that we could end up with a fascist as the leader of the free world again. They're seeing genocide and ethnic cleansing happening in real time, and while western media tries their best to sheild people from the truth, younger voters are watching the dead bodies pile up and Palestinian journalists post what's happening on Instagram and TikTok.

I also didn't agree with Whoopi for saying the black church where people were massacred by a racist terrorist wasn't the time or place for people to be protesting about the rising death tolls of Palestinians.

People are being killed there daily, so why wouldn't that be the perfect place to protest? Biden was elected because black people (particularly women) came out in droves to get him elected. I think people are tired of the Dems taking the black vote for granted, and this is something that needs to be addressed or else this nation will never cease to recover.
