Whoopi Goldberg Won't Pull a Rosie O'Donnell

by at . Comments

Whoopi Goldberg may have some controversial shoes to fill, but the new cohost of ABC's The View says she has a more relaxed approach to hosting than her predecessors.

Rosie O'Donnell, we think she's talking to you.

"I disagree with a lot of stuff a lot of people say, but there is a dialogue to have with people that I was taught by my mom â€" how to be respectful and listen," Goldberg said during an interview on Ryan Seacrest's KIIS-FM radio show on Monday that People reported.

"You can get loud and move on after you are finished with it, that is how I work," she added. "I have a different approach. I stir the pot just by my presence."

And Elisabeth Hasselbeck stirs the pot any time she opens her mouth.

Goldberg says she maintains a good attitude because she's generally a happy person. Seems simple enough.

"It's not so much that I am nice. but I have a great life and I have no reason to be angry at anybody."

As for why she was chosen over all the other candidates to fill one of the vacant seats, Goldberg said: "I don't have a clue, Ryan. I don't know child, why? I'm black, I don't know. I've done the show a lot of times and I probably looked like I could use the gig."

The same goes for Sherri Shepherd. Our celebrity gossip blog will let you know if she fills the other spot on the show.
