Whoopi Goldberg is setting the record straight about her sexual orientation. 

While on Raven-Symoné’s podcast “The Best Pod Ever,” Goldberg told Raven that she isn’t a lesbian after it was said that “The View” co-host was giving lesbian stud vibes. “Women have been asking me this for as long as I’ve been around,” Goldberg said. 

“I am not a lesbian. But I know lots of them, and I’ve played them on television. But I have always had lesbian friends because they’re just my friends,” she added. The award-winning actress continued, “I’m not gonna kiss you, but I’ll kiss you over here, I’ll do this but I’m not going to do this…And they’re like, ‘OK!’” 

Raven responded to Whoopi’s clarification and said, “There is something beautiful about a woman being able to embrace their masculine and feminine at the same time and wear it so well like you do.”
