During a discussion on The View moments ago, Barbara Walters teased her Friday interviewee, the First Lady of France, Carla Bruni. She pointed out that Bruni “had over 30 lovers.” Sherri Shepherd, who admittedly has gotten around, asked in shock, “She told her husband she had 30 lovers!?” On the other side of the table, however, Whoopi Goldberg was less surprised. She flashed the number of lovers she has had in her life — a feat that required using both of her hands and her feet. Turns out she’s had “about 50.” “You should do an album!” Walters said, in awe — in reference to Bruni’s own song lyrics about her lovers. “It doesn’t matter how many people you’ve been with in your life,” Whoopi said, throwing it to commercial. “It’s who you stick with.” Which would have been a sweet sentiment, had we heard it. We were too busy sneezing coffee out of our noses.
