Whoopi Goldberg: stoned on “The View”

By Kim Palacios

HollywoodNews.com: “The View’s” Whoopi Goldberg shocked audience members and co-hosts on Monday when she arrived to the show stoned on prescription drugs. The actress/comedienne had rushed to the studio to fulfill her commitment despite having just been on a long flight—one on which she overdid it on the anti-anxiety medication she takes to cope with a dislike of flying.

Self-medicating for flights is nothing out-of-the ordinary for Goldberg (nor for many others who dislike traveling by plane). Yet, it’s not clear how or why, in this case, the seasoned traveler would take enough medication to get her high. The actress had been in Vienna, Austria for an AIDS benefit that occurred in conjunction with the 18th annual International AIDS Conference. The briefest flights from Vienna to New York are rarely shorter than nine hours—plenty of time for a standard dosage of anti-anxiety meds to wear off.

Though co-hosts may have been perturbed by her behavior during Monday’s episode, Goldberg herself was all smiles. Between giggling fits so severe they stopped her mid-sentence, and a few random ramblings, the star appeared to be having a ball.
