The View on The Oprah Show
Recently, Whoopi spoke on The View about her struggle with drug addiction, saying that she was at one point a "functioning drug addict." She says she doesn't regret making that statement. "I feel that sometimes experience trumps assumption," she says. "I could speak to what we were talking about. It was Charlie Sheen and how he was able to perform and still go and have that other life, and I knew how it worked because I had done it for years."
