Whoopi Goldberg puts feet up on “The View”, hilariously refuses to discuss Kate Middleton: 'Anyone have a drink?'

Whoopi Goldberg puts feet up on “The View”, hilariously refuses to discuss Kate Middleton: 'Anyone have a drink?'

"I'm just gonna let them blow themselves out," Goldberg said, pretending to take a nap as her cohosts addressed royal conspiracies.

The Whoopi Goldberg War Room — usually an action-packed affair honing in on terroristic threats such as toy cacti, the appearance of unexpected crew members, and the Diablo video games — stood down on matters of international conspiracy on Tuesday's episode of The View.

The Oscar-winning actress and View moderator hilariously kicked her feet up on the Hot Topics table and refused to discuss her cohosts' conspiracy theories regarding the whereabouts of British royal Kate Middleton during the live broadcast, after video surfaced of Middleton — who hadn't made an official public appearance in months following a reported abdominal surgery — allegedly walking outside in recent days.

Goldberg's move came as legal expert (and, as of late, the show's official British royal investigator) Sunny Hostin alleged that "the profile is not Kate" with regards to the woman in the new video, and suggested that it was instead a body double.

"I'm just gonna let them blow themselves out," Goldberg said, resting her feet on the table and pretending to take a nap throughout the segment, while her excited cohosts broke down Middleton's ongoing scandal.

Goldberg didn't weigh in beyond the topic's initial phase, but did turn toward the audience to inquire: "Anyone have a drink?"

Joy Behar cut in to relieve Goldberg of her strife a few minutes later, when she informed her pal that "it's time to go to commercial" while the table urged Goldberg to "wake up!" in unison.

This marks the second time in the last week that Goldberg has expressed disdain for conspiracies regarding the British royals, after she tried to throw the show to a commercial break early while her cohosts hawked speculations about Middleton on the March 13 broadcast.

"You haven't had this done to you," Goldberg told her cohosts at the time. "It's our fault, because we bought into this. When you buy into this stuff, when they start doing it to your family or your kids, it's not cute. It's not fun, and it really irritates me."

The View airs weekdays at 11 a.m. ET on ABC.
