On last night's WATCH WHAT HAPPENS LIVE on Bravo, host Andy Cohen asked his guest, comedian and talk show host Whoopi Goldberg, if she plans on ever doing another one-woman show on Broadway. "You know I would do another one-woman show," responds 'The View' host adding, "but you know, all you hear after you do your second or third one-woman show is, 'it wasn't as good as the first one.'"

Later. Goldberg tells Cohen that she hadn't heard about NeNe Leakes' displeasure during her appearance on "The View" and then tells NeNe to come back and try again.

Goldberg has been nominated for 13 Emmy Awards for her work in television, and is one of the few entertainers who has won an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony Award. Her BREAKTHROUGH role was playing Celie, a mistreated black woman in the Deep South in the period drama film The Color Purple (1985), for which she was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actress. Goldberg played Oda Mae Brown, an eccentric psychic helping a slain man (Patrick Swayze) save his lover (Demi Moore), in theromantic fantasy film Ghost (1990), for which she won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress.

Goldberg created The Spook Show, a one-woman show composed of different character monologues, in 1983. The show was retitled Whoopi Goldberg for its Broadway incarnation, which ran from October 24, 1984 to March 10, 1985, for a total of 156 performances. The play was taped during this run and subsequently broadcast by HBO as Whoopi Goldberg: Direct from Broadway in 1985.

Goldberg made her West End debut as the Mother Superior in a musical version of Sister Act for a limited engagement in 2010.
