Whoopi Goldberg was on the Domenick Nati Show to promote her Christmas Sweater line. It’s a rough cut where he asks her to give a bite to him promoting the show. She gives the site name saying “This is Whoopi Goldberg on the Domenick Nat Show. He asks about her Christmas sweaters and she gives some information on them. Then he brings up a hot topic. He mentions all Hollywood men exposed as sexual predators. He asks Whoopi if she has ever been in that type of situation. Her PR person who is also on the the line tells him to stick to the sweaters. Whoopi appears to hang up at that point.
I am a fan of the Domenick Nati Show. So I agreed to put this post up for several reasons. First, I have been the victim of sexual assault several times. What many people do not know is that childhood victims of sexual assault tend to be assaulted multiple times. We also tend to be sexually promiscuous because when you have your first sexual encounter at age four or five, it sort of messes you up to think that is normal. Then in your teens a lot of bad stuff happens. Sometimes it keeps happening.
I’ve always been able to tell that some serious shit happened to Whoopi. She annoys the fuck out of me on The View. But I can see it. I also see, that like me she does not feel safe in her own home and she rarely lets anyone into her house. I know the signs.
And then she spent all of that time defending Bill Cosby. I sort of got that too. He was Bill Cosby. Her comedic idol. She didn’t want to believe it until she had not other choice.
Whoopi Goldberg is at time really hard to deal with. She has her money and a much nicer place to hide in than I do. But I can see her story. It’s my story. But we are both in the same headspace. And that money might by a few brighter days, but the damage is still the same.
Here is what happened on that interview. Maybe she will mention it on The View, but I doubt it. I do think we should all stop being silent though. I wish Whoopie would get to that point. I don’t know why we continue to defend the predators, but we do. I’m off to but one of her sweaters now Zappos.
Edited: I edited this a bit to remove some of my foul tongue which happens sometimes. It seemed misplace to me an diluted my point. I in no way meant to say that because someone is in the limelight they should have to discuss their personal traumas (if they exist) and a portion discussing sexual promiscuity as a result of early sexual abuse where some misinterpreted my thoughts. And no, no one asked me to do this. Y’all know I never do as I am told and spend a lot of time regretting things I’ve said.
