Whoopi Goldberg picks her favorite things as she celebrates her birthday on The View with special guests including her pal Jenifer Lewis (from ABC’s black-ish — and Sister Act!). “Rise Up” Singer Andra Day — full first name Cassandra, BTW — will also help Whoopi celebrate her birthday. The View is hopping because it also happens to be Whoopi’s 10th year at the table on The View — she replaced the equally outspoken Rosie O’Donnell in 2007. So many things to commemorate and celebrate for the entertainer and activist who has won the Grand Slam of entertainment awards. That’s right, Whoopi has won the Grammy, Emmy, Oscar and Tony Awards. More than once in some cases.
Her list — Whoopi’s Favorite Things — is a popular birthday/holiday tradition on The View. Last year she chose eight items. The Little Free Library topped the list with its community-oriented reading message. Whoopi’s items from last year are all just as relevant as the Free Library this time around. And there are always Whoopi’s Ugly Sweaters, great for every year.
