Whoopi Goldberg is ‘very happy’ being single

Los Angeles, Nov 21 (IANS) Hollywood star Whoopi Goldberg says she is “very happy” being single and would rather just have one “commitment” in her life — her cat.

Speaking on The Tamron Hall Show, Goldberg said: “People keep saying, you know, ‘Well, you’ll find somebody.’ But … I’m not looking for anyone. I’m very happy. I don’t want to live with anybody. I have a cat. I have a 20-year-old cat who is attitudinal. And so he will leave little treats for anybody that’s not me in the bed. I know what he will do if I bring somebody in.”

“(I don’t like relationships because) there’s a commitment. When you make a commitment to someone else, it’s a commitment to ask their opinion and listen and work it out with them. I don’t want to do that. I don’t. I don’t want to share money. I know it’s terrible, but I don’t want to do it. I know, for me, it doesn’t work.”

Adv.

Goldberg previously said she got married three times because she thought it was “expected” of her, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

The 64-year-old star was married to Alvin Martin between 1973 and 1979, David Claessen between 1986 and 1988 and Lyle Trachtenberg between 1994 and 1995.

She said: “Look, people expect you to have a boyfriend. They expect you to get married. So I kept trying to do that, but I didn’t want to share information with somebody else. I didn’t want anybody asking me why I was doing what I was doing, or to have to make the other person feel better. But, if you’re in a relationship, you have to do those things, and it took me a while to figure out that I didn’t want to.

Adv.

“I’d be thinking, why don’t I feel the thing that I’m supposed to? Then one day I thought: I don’t have to do this. I don’t have to conform. I tried marriage, and it wasn’t for me. You can’t be in a marriage because everybody’s expecting you to.”
