Whoopi Goldberg is opening up to fellow actor Raven-Symoné about her sexuality and more.
Whoopi Goldberg Opens Up About Her Sexuality To Raven-Symoné
The 67-year-old actor appeared on a recently published episode of Raven-Symoné’s podcast, ‘The Best Podcast Ever with Raven and Miranda.’ About halfway into the episode, the group began to discuss same-sex relationships, and Symoné posed a question to Goldberg.
“Speaking of love and, like, staying out of people’s business, I want to just dig into your business a little bit,” Symoné told Goldberg. “But sometimes, honestly, when I was around you, I loved you so much, I just wanted to be up under [you] the whole time. But that’s also because you just kind of gave me lesbian vibes.”
Symoné then went on to tell Goldberg that she gives off “stud vibes.”
“So if you want to tell us anything, you’re more than welcome,” Symoné explained.
Goldberg addressed Symoné’s comment by explaining that she often receives that question from women. However, she is “not a lesbian.”
“But I know lots of them, and I’ve played them on television… But I’ve always had lesbian friends because they’re just my friends…”
Raven Symoné Praises Whoopi Goldberg For Her “Duality”
As the conversation continued, the former Disney Channel actor shared her praise for Whoopi Goldberg and her response.
“Which makes me happy because I can also say that… there’s something beautiful about a woman being able to embrace their masculine and feminine at the same time and wear it so well like you do…”
Symoné continued by explaining that Goldberg presents herself as a human who lives in her “duality so well,” she believes that is why the 67-year-old has been so successful.
Goldberg then responded by thanking Symoné and letting her know that she believes everyone was created in their duality.
“It isn’t this or that. It just is,” Goldberg firmly concluded.
Raven-Symoné Recently Shared Her Own Revelations
As The Shade Room previously reported, Raven-Symoné also opened up with her own revelations earlier this month. During a previous episode of her podcast, the 37-year-old revealed that she had “two breast reductions and lipo” before she turned 18. However, she never shared the information publicly.
“I had two breast reductions and lipo before I turned 18.… I never [publicly] shared it,” she explained. “There was paperwork involved. My dad suggested, strongly, that I should get my breasts reduced.”
Additionally, the actor explained that chose to undergo liposuction after having the first breast reduction to get others to “stop calling [her] fat.” However, she explained that she gained weight following the two initial surgeries and then decided to go back for a second breast reduction.
Symoné added that this was because her breasts “were still too big for others’ feelings.”
Looking back, the 37-year-old ultimately shared a word of advice for others contemplating surgery.
“If you want something changed in your body, live with it for a little bit longer to see if it changes. And get therapy before that happens.”
