Hello all, here we are with another post. In this post, I will be talking about Whoopi Goldberg. Now you know I like to give a brief intro so here we go.
Caryn Elaine Johnson, aka Whoopi Goldberg, was born on November 13, 1955, and this is no big surprise in New York City Manhattan. The daughter of Robert James Johnson, who was a clergyman and Emma Johnson they’re both dead, father died in 93 and mother died 2010. Her father abandoned the family, and now being a single mother, she had to work at a variety of jobs — including teaching and nursing — to make ends meet. Whoopi changed her name when she decided that her given name was too dull, and not to mention she believed in letting it go when and if she gets gassy. So, people used to say that she was like a Whoopi cushion. Goldberg is because she claims to be half Jewish and half Catholic, which attributed to her family history. But this was rejected when she was on the show found that all of Goldberg’s traceable ancestors were African Americans, and that she has no known Jewish ancestry, and that none of her ancestors were named Goldberg. So, in short, Whoopi made it up. But the results did reveal that she was 92% Sub-Saharan African and 8% European. She went to Washington Irving High School, but she dropped before she ever graduated.
Anyway, in the 70’s she lived and worked spew of various jobs. While working under an acting teacher named Uta Hagen at the HB Studio in New York. Her first onscreen appearance was in Citizen. I’m not Losing My Mind, and I’m Giving It Away. From there she created local shows one was “The Spook Show,” and many thought she had a natural talent for acting, especially in theater, they also thought she was funny. She eventually caught the eyes of Steven Spielberg, who cast her in the lead role The Color Purple, her character, and the success. Whoopi was nominated for an Academy Award. From there, she took off, and she starred in her first solo lead role in one of my favorite movies of Whoopi called “Jumping Jack Flash” and many more after that. But it was the role in movie Ghost that’s he earned an Academy Award. She was quoted saying that she hated that they made her blow dry her straight. Anyway, she then got her TV Series Whoopi, but the politically driven tv company got her to cancel because of her political views on the show. While completely ignoring the high ratings. She was devastated. Anyway, she went on to act, produce, and direct in many movies after that. She also won all types of entertainment awards. She became a co-host of The View, so on so forth with her many career endeavors. Now, let’s get personal…
Let’s Get Personal
Okay, we all know about Whoopi from her movies and also for being the co-host of the View. But most of us don’t know much about her personal life. Well, I’m here to tell you this information. You see, Whoopi has been married three times. She was once married to Alvin Martin in 1973, and they had a daughter name Alexandrea Martin in 1973 when she was only 18yrs old. They forced them to get married. But of-course they divorced in 1979. Then she married again to a David Claessen in 1986, and they divorced in 1988. Then she got married again to Lyle Trachtenberg in 1994, and they divorced in 1995. She was leaked to having severe relationships with Frank Langella, Timothy Dalton, and Ted Danson, who rumored of being engaged to be married. But after Ted Danson appeared in Black Face, they broke up. Then she later admitted to Piers Morgan, saying,
“she has no plans to marry again, and that some people are not meant to be married, and I am not meant to. I’m sure it is wonderful for lots of people.”
She then went on to say that she never loved the men she married. She also later commented: “You have to be committed to them. And I’m just—I don’t have that commitment. I’m committed to my family.” That includes her daughter, son in law, and her three grandchildren. But it wasn’t just her getting married at a young age. She has experimented with drugs as well. She has been known to have been a “high functioning” drug addict years ago, whereas sometimes to terrified to leave her bed to use the toilet. She also stated that she had smoked so much marijuana before accepting the Best Supporting Actress award for Ghost in 1991. Her daughter was 18yrs old at this time. It’s noted that Alexandra had a troubled childhood thanks to Whoopi’s career and drug used. If you haven’t noticed, she doesn’t talk much about her years of raising her daughter. Oh, I’m not done yet she’s even had relationships with women, oh yes, Whoopi has done it all. But even with all this, she was diagnosed with dyslexia. But times have changed, and so has she. She’s now involved in many causes with Aids, LGBT she’s also a Feminist, she’s also a member of the National Rifle Association. And many more causes, too many to remember.
Now, Let’s Get Dark…
Okay, we all know that Whoopi was one of few colored actresses who didn’t completely change their appearance just to be accepted in Hollywood. I mean, women of color with dreads aren’t favored as much, especially back then. But that’s just it. She did, and it was right around the movie “Ghost.” You see, she promised them that she would change her appearance. She complied for a second, but then she went back on the deal. The struggles with this decision were lingering for years. I mean, selling your soul for fame when you’re so young can taunt you. That’s another reason why she was on drugs. She heard voices, and she heard demons. Like many stars who sold their souls, they numb it with alcohol, drugs, and so on. I mean, she was known to have sacrificed her mother in 2010 and her brother in 2015. You all have to understand that Whoopi talents aren’t accepted anymore, and the agreement they do make isn’t for a long time like ten or 20yrs depending on the individual’s age. So, when she sacrificed her mother, who was doom to die anyway, but not that soon. That gave her 5yrs, that come and pass, so she offered her brother, which leaves two years left. Oh, and I bet she will be preparing to leave The View. I could be wrong about all of this, and the deaths could have been warnings or just unfortunate deaths. Only time will tell. But one thing I can say. She did try and fight the elite, and she also stayed true to her heritage, well somewhat. But once you make a deal with the devil, there is no breaking it, and the only way to break it is with the stripping of everything he gifted you with and death. I pray everything works out for Whoopi, I’m a huge fan, and she has a fantastic heart. But a person who doesn’t love themselves unconditionally is incapable of truly loving someone else.
