"Extra" caught up with Whoopi Goldberg during her New York book signing today. Whoopi spilled on the backstage drama between her "View" co-hostesses, saying, "You can disagree with your friends, loved ones and not make it personal. In spite of what anybody reads or says, there are no personal digs taken at that table." Goldberg hopes people will "stop listening for trouble and hear what we are talking about ... Listen to us as we speak, not as other people interpret us."
"The View" co-hostess also offered her opinion on the presidential race. "I think it's going to be incredibly close ... The truth of the matter is, you don't know what anybody is going to do once they walk in that voting booth." She continued, "Most people recognize, I think, B.S. when they hear it. I think most people are smart enough to know they are going to have to study the issues."
Whoopi was signing copies of her new children's book, "Sugar Plum Ballerinas" -- in stores now.
