CELEBRATE with The View host Whoopi Goldberg as she threw a wild birthday party, complete with drag queens and giveaways.
Before each segment began, the disc jockey performed his songs in a booth that said, “Happy Birthday Whoppi!”
When the episode aired on November 10, Whoopi explained why she was celebrating ahead of her actual November 13 birth date.
She said: “Today we celebrate because we usually celebrate together.
“Sunday is the real day. We’re not working, so we’re doing it today.”
To mark the occasion, guest Emly Blunt presented The View host with a bouquet.
As the festivities continued, Whoopi, who is about to turn 67, opened up about her “favorite things” about co-hosting Sara Haines, 45.
The Sister Act star showed off Itinera’s beauty products, sneaker obsession and Funko Pop collectibles.
Whoopi even gave each audience member a pair of Kizik sneakers.
Before the end of the show, a line-up of drag queens gathered around the birthday girl.
Whoopi told the audience: “I’m exhausted. I sure could use a break, like a vacation.
“You could too! Since vacations are my favorite too, you’re all going on a trip to Cancun, Mexico!”
After the audience stood and applauded, Whoopi danced along with the drag queens from her seat and shouted, “This has been a great birthday!
“Happy birthday to the world!”
Also during the broadcast, the ABC star announced her new career move and showed off her new drink, Whoopi Prosecco.
A group of dancers came out on set and brought a bottle of Whoopi Prosecco for each panel member.
Whoopi held her bottle up to the camera and said, “So how about some bubbly from my new line of Whoopi Prosecco?
“I love hosting get-togethers with friends and family – that’s why I created Whoopi Prosecco.”
The comedian claimed the $21.99 drink is made with “organic grapes” from Asolo, Italy.
The TV star also announced that she has landed a role in an upcoming Western film written and directed by Mario Van Peebles.
Deadline reported that filming recently wrapped in Montana.
The film focuses on: “Chief (Van Peebles), a renegade cowboy who assembles a multicultural team of new and old friends to travel into dangerous unsettled territory to recover gold from an abandoned mine.”
The “performed” role of Stagecoach Mary will be played by Whoopi, who has joined a cast that includes Cedric the Entertainer, John Carroll Lynch, Edward James Olmos and M. Emmet Walsh.
