Following the release of Meghan Markle’s latest podcast episode where she said she felt like she was being “reduced to this specific archetype” that was “all looks and little substance” during her brief stint as a suitcase girl on Deal or No Deal, Whoopi Goldberg hit back at the Duchess of Sussex with a different perspective.
During today’s episode of The View, Goldberg said she “doesn’t know” that people watching the hit game show “are thinking about you like that.” According to the host, “They’re thinking, ‘I want the money.’” She went on to suggest to Markle that “the objectification might be coming from you and how you felt about how these women were being portrayed.”
She continued, “That’s what you have to change because we’re performers. When you’re a performer, you take the gig. Sometimes you’re in a bozo suit, sometimes you got a big nose, and this is just the way it is. We’re not journalists. We’re actors. We’re trying to get to another place.”
Sunny Hostin jumped in to describe the “archetype” Markle was referring to as she pointed out that the show had “no big girls” and all they had were “little, skinny, tiny, pretty models.” However, Goldberg fired back, “But what did you think you were going to? That’s what the show was.”
“I agree with that. She took the job, she took the gig,” Hostin responded. “I also appreciate that she said, ‘Well, this makes me feel bad, I’m gonna walk away,’ and she walked away.”
Meanwhile, Goldberg reiterated her point as she said, “If you see it and that’s how you feel, just maybe you don’t want to make the other women feel bad because maybe they’re trying to make a living, too.”
The View airs on weekdays at 11/10c on ABC.
