The View moderator Whoopi Goldberg brought a political discussion – and today’s episode – to a weird, out-of-the-blue halt today when she stunned co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin by asking, “Are you pregnant?”
“No!,” a surprised and embarrassed Griffin said, laughing and adding, “Oh my god! You can’t say that when my mother-in-law is here, who’s been dying for me to get pregnant!”
The question clearly surprised the other panelists. “Why would you say that?,” co-host Joy Behar said as the audience responded in off-guard laughter.
“Why, do I look pregnant?,” a laughing Farah Griffin asked, to which Goldberg responded, “Yes, I just got a vibe. I’m so sorry.”
“I’m very open to being pregnant soon,” Farah Griffin said. “I am not blessed to be pregnant yet. My husband and I are thinking about it.”
The personal question came during a discussion about Mitt Romney’s decision to not seek another Senate term.
“I’ll take a test when I get home just to be sure,” Farah Griffin joked as the discussion returned to politics.
Watch the exchange below. The question comes at the 2:45 mark.
