WHOOPI Goldberg’s latest career move away from The View has been revealed.
The actress, 67 – whose “rude” conduct on the chat show has recently been slammed by fans – is embarking on a fresh role away from the TV cameras.
Whoopi joined The View back in 2007 yet was recently absent from the show due to a health issue.
Her latest project will feature none other than top actor Sir Patrick Stewart, 83.
The Star Trek legend recently penned his memoir, Making It So, and will discuss its contents with the Hollywood legend at New York’s Symphony Space.
Show bosses have promised: “Sir Patrick Stewart will share tales from his acclaimed stage triumphs to his legendary onscreen work.
“Making It So is a revealing portrait of an artist whose astonishing life—from his humble beginnings in Yorkshire, England to the heights of Hollywood and worldwide acclaim—proves a story as exuberant, definitive, and enduring as the author himself.”
The actor recently starred alongside Whoopi on The View back in 2015.
Whoopi previously pleaded for forgiveness on-screen as fans ripped her “rude and inappropriate” behavior.

At the time, Alyssa gave a firm “no” and asked why Whoopi would say such a thing.
This behavior didn’t sit well with fans, who immediately took to social media to tear into Whoopi for the question.
Later on, Whoopi did apologize to Alyssa during the conversation – after bringing the show to a halt with her blunt words.
It came shortly before she snapped at co-host Sunny Hostin during a different segment.
Sunny has previously hinted at discord behind the scenes, admitting to “feuds” leading to a “chaotic” episode.
She and Ana Navarro sat down with GMA’s Linsey Davis to discuss the new season of The View, which premiered last week.
Linsey asked the women to share the “secret sauce” behind The View’s incredible success.
Sunny said: “It’s the ladies. There are five of us. We love each other.
“Despite what you may hear, we get along, even though we’re very different in many respects.”
Whoopi has previously accused her co-stars of trying to “trip her up” on the hit chat series.
Yet the Ghost actress recently opened up on the reason for her “rude” behavior on some episodes.
Whoopi sat down with The View‘s executive producer, Brian Teta, who mentioned the talk show host’s less-than-enthusiastic attitude about certain Hot Topics.
“I think it’s been picked up on by the audience at home that the lighter relationship topics, the sex topics, things like that, maybe not your favorite day-to-day,” Brian pointed out to the show’s moderator.
Whoopi didn’t deny that she wasn’t a fan of those topics but admitted she “tries” to join the discussion as best she can.
“Not every day. And we have a habit of doing these things every day, and so I get,” the Sister Act star recalled.
