Whoopie Goldberg Signs New Deal with the View
Raven-Symone along with Michelle Collins and Candace Cameron-Bure will soon announce their departure from Daytimes hit talk show “The View”. Meanwhile Whoopie Goldberg has signed a $2.5 million deal to return to the show for it’s 20th season which will begin in September.
Although the Oscar, Tonny and Grammy award winner will be making half of her previous salary, according to the Daily Mail, she will have a four day work schedule. Arriving by 8:30 am and leaving by 12:30 pm most days, leaving Joy Behar, who was said to be gunning for Whoopie’s position, to host Friday’s broadcasts. Her deal also allows her to take off time for guest appearances on other TV shows and to film movie roles. Meanwhile, whether or not Raven-Symone returns to The View or not, she probably won’t miss the paycheck given that she racked up an estimated $82 million in combined earnings to take the No. 1 spot on People With Money’s top 10 highest paid actresses. Credit business investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals, her own brand of Vodka, several restaurants— including the “Fat Raven-SymonО Burger” chain—in Washington, her own fragrance and a fashion line.
