Earlier this year, Goldberg announced she would be launching her own line of prosecco, however, when another host encouraged her to promote it on the show, the Sister Act star claimed she didn't feel comfortable encouraging their viewers to drink while she is still on The View.

The 66-year-old has been cohosting and moderating the talk show since 2007, but her time on the series hasn't been without controversy. Goldberg was suspended after making insensitive comments regarding the Holocaust. She's also been accused of snubbing fans and was recently criticized for using foul language on air.
