Whoopi’s all better now.
Whoopi Goldberg has accepted an apology from producer Gil Cates for not including her in a montage featuring Oscar hosts during Sunday’s Academy Awards telecast.
Cates called her Tuesday and “talked about the fact that he had made an oversight, pure and simple. He said, `You know I love you,'” Goldberg said Wednesday on ABC daytime talk show “The View.” Goldberg, who called Cates a “great gentleman,” accepted his apology.
She said she has “moved on” since choking up on Monday’s show when her fellow co-hosts discussed how she was left out of the clip.
The 52-year-old actress-comedian hosted the Oscars in 1994, 1996, 1999 and 2002.
I didn’t see the show (ahem, I don’t ‘The View’) so I don’t know about the whole tearing up thing. I dunno – I guess I never pegged Whoopi Goldberg to be that fragile.
Maybe she was left out because her hosting performances haven’t really been memorable? I mean memorable like Billy Crystal memorable. Or even Johnny Carson memorable. I mean, for the life of me, I can’t think of one stand out thing Whoopi did during her stint as Oscar host.
Oh well, for whatever it’s worth, she’s whole again.
