Whoopi Goldberg confesses: 'always knew' never wanted to get married.

During a recent episode of The View, the 67-year-old superstar, Whoopi Goldberg, opened up about her past relationships, admitting that she never truly desired to tie the knot despite being married three times in the past. 

As she reflected on her trio of divorces, Goldberg didn't shy away from expressing her frustration at the tedious and costly nature of these separations.

On the show, the Ghost star shared that she felt like "dancing and prancing" every single time her marriage came to an end. 

Having experienced three divorces, with her last marriage to union organizer Lyle Trachtenberg ending in 1995, Goldberg has since chosen to remain single. 

She hinted that the increasing costs and monotony of these breakups played a significant role in her decision to abstain from saying "I do" again, despite her high-profile romances with actors Timothy Dalton and Ted Danson.

During the conversation with her fellow panellists, Goldberg grew visibly exasperated as they discussed their own relationships. In particular, her frustration peaked when Joy Behar suggested that women should consider marrying younger partners.

The panel of The View, comprising Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Sara Haines, Sunny Hostin, and Alyssa Farah Griffin, delved into a spirited conversation on dating and divorce during Tuesday's episode.

The discussion took an intriguing turn as they touched upon the recent social media outburst of The Real Housewives of Miami star Lisa Hochstein, who slammed her estranged husband Lenny Hochstein for his engagement to girlfriend Katharina Mazepa while still being married to her.

Sunny inquired further, prompting Joy to humorously remark that there's a unique kind of rage involved in a divorce.
