“Remember when you said those racist things on my show and I walked off? Oh, those were good times.”
]]>Whoopi Goldberg‘s Nov. 23 appearance on Bill O’Reilly’s “The O’Reilly Factor.” It’s the first time the two have spoken publicly since O’Reilly’s Oct. 14 visit to “The View,” when talk of the World Trade Center adjacent mosque prompted Goldberg and co-host Joy Behar to walk off. But the two are all smiles now. O’Reilly straight up giggles in a preview of the interview, asking Whoopi what she said about him afterward backstage. “Were you cursing me out and stuff?” O’Reilly hasn’t sounded this playful since Falafal-gate. Whoopi doesn’t seem to have many hard feelings either. “If I cross a line, which I crossed,” says Goldberg, “because I heard myself say something I had no business saying… I knew I had to go.” That line, apparently, was uttering the un-acronym-ed word for “BS.” Because the women of “The View” always walk off stage after slipping a debatable profanity.
