Whoopi Goldberg Goes on the Defensive

Whoopi Goldberg is an aspirational figure for many reasons. For one, she once chewed the arms off a Barbie doll. For another, she launched her own line of medical-marijuana products to help with menstrual cramps. And in a recent interview, Whoopi gave us a new level of emotional independence to aspire to. On Wednesday,in the New York Times, The View co-host shared her thoughts on marriage, and they are, specifically: "I don't want somebody in my house."

"I'm not that interested," she went on. "I'm much happier on my own. I can spend as much time with somebody as I want to spend, but I'm not looking to be with somebody forever or live with someone."
