Whoopi Goldberg Returns to ‘The View’ After Missing Premiere Week With COVID and on 9/11 Somber Anniversary


After missing the season 27 premiere of The View, complete with a new table and chairs, Whoopi Goldberg was back on the ABC morning talk series on Monday.

Goldberg was out of commission last week due to her third bout with Covid-19.  Upon her return, Whoopi received a standing ovation from the studio audience.

As well, Monday, September 11th marks the 22nd anniversary of the 9/11 attacks; as many gathered to remember the victims and their loved ones in ceremonies in New York City, the Pentagon in Virginia, and in Pennsylvania.

Goldberg shared this important 9/11 remembrance: “When you think about it is has been 22 years. We are still losing first responders, because they have been ill. This is something we will never forget. It’s one of those things like when I was a kid, when somebody said, ‘Where were you when Kennedy was shot?’ You knew where you were. We all know where we were on this day. I think our thoughts and prayers, which always sounds a little false, but I think on a day like today, we actually mean it, that our thoughts and prayers are with everyone, including ourselves who were affected by this.”

So, glad to see Whoopi back as the lead moderator of The View? Do you remember where you were the first plane crashed into the Twin Towers on September 11 2001? Let us know in the comment section below. But first, watch a bit of Whoopi’s return today to ‘The View’ below.

So glad the Whoop is healthy and back on with us. I bought the original album (cassette) of her first Broadway show, directed by Mike Nichols, in 1984 and she’s been a favorite ever since. The humor, the pathos, and the innocence of that show are still remarkable 40 years on. I love her books, too. Her humor and my funnybone just connect, always have.

As a Canadian who most identifies as someone with Democratic principles I just admit the View has become unwatchable. It’s just the panel piling on with their democratic ideals , there’s real no debate as since that princess Mc Cain left theirs no one left really stirring the pot or presenting a alternative viewpoint on the Republican side. Also Sunny s become so angry and forceful. Ugh


The Young and the Restless Pays Tribute to Billy Miller at Conclusion of Episode

On Thursday, The Young and the Restless paid a special tribute to one of their favorite sons, Billy Miller. The actor who passed away on September 15th at the age of 43, was honored by the long-running CBS soap opera at the end of today’s episode.

Y&R shared on social media, “To end today’s episode we paid tribute to a greatly missed member of the Y&R family. Billy Miller will forever be in our hearts.”

Miller, who played Billy Abbott from 2008-2014 and won three Daytime Emmys for the role, was remembered with four photos from his time in Genoa City and as part of the legacy of Y&R.


Since his passing, many of his co-stars from both The Young and the Restless and General Hospital have shared their grief and remembrances including: Y&R’s Jess Walton, Eric Braeden, Elizabeth Hendrickson, Eileen Davidson, Jason Thompson, Finola Hughes and more.

Following Miller’s departure from Y&R, he joined General Hospital to take over the role of Jason Morgan/Drew Cain from 2014-2019.  Billy started his daytime career on All My Children as Richie Novack in 2007.

‘Dancing with the Stars’ Might Delay Its Premiere, ‘Veep’ Star Matt Walsh to ‘Pause’ His Involvement as Celebrity Contestant Due to Strikes

More pushback for ABC and Disney+’s, upcoming season premiere of Dancing with the Stars.  Now comes word that ABC may delay its scheduled season 32 debut episode.

After the show was picketed by WGA and SAG-AFTRA members. one of the show’s celebrity contestants is ‘pausing’ his involvement with competing on the show, and that would be Veep star Matt Walsh.

In a statement, Walsh revealed, “I was excited to join the show and did so under the impression that it was not a WGA show and fell under a different agreement.  This morning when I was informed by my union, the WGA, that it is considered struck work I walked out of my rehearsal. I have been and will always stand with my union members of the WGA, SAG and DGA.”

Walsh added, “Beyond our union artists, I am sensitive to the many people impacted by the strike and I hope for a speedy and fair resolution, and to one day work again with all the wonderful people I met at DWTS who tolerated my dancing.”

As previously reported, DWTS falls under SAG-AFTRA’s Network Code contract, which covers talk, variety shows and soap operas and is at play through June 2024. Thus, celebrities taking part in the show, are not in violation of SAG-AFTRA strike rules.

Meanwhile, though an unscripted reality series, Dancing With the Stars is a signatory to the Writers Guild’s minimum basic agreement. DWTS in the the past has employed a WGA writer among its staff of reportedly, 500.  However, given the harsh blowback of participants crossing WGA lines, ABC is now strongly considering delaying its September 26th season premiere of the ballroom dancing/competition series.

So, what do you think of Matt Walsh’s suspending involvement on DWTS? Should the show also pause its premiere till resolution of the WGA strike, at least? The WGA and AMPTP are set to continue talks today on Thursday to hopefully move towards an agreement to end the strike.
