THE View’s Whoopi Goldberg was stunned by Alicia Silverstone’s shocking confession.
The Clueless actress, 45, has revealed how close her relationship with her 11-year-old son Bear is.
It all started after Whoopi shared a clip of Alicia discussing her “approach to motherhood” during a chat on the Ellen Fisher Podcast.
“I’m a natural mom and I’m a loving mom,” Alicia revealed to the podcast host during the clip.
She continued, “I believe in love and I believe in nature…and our society is afraid of nature and afraid of love.”
“…Bear and I still sleep together,” she later shared, adding, “I’m gonna get in trouble for saying that, but I don’t care.”
At the end of the clip, the camera was back on Whoopi who looked stunned and simply shook her head as the live audience laughed.
“I don’t know any 11-year-old who wants to have sex with me,” the Ghost actress said before adding, “I don’t have teenagers…I have grandkids. I have an eight-year-old child… old and she’ll come hang out…”
Whoopi, 66, then threw it to her panel as guest co-host Lindsey Granger reacted: “I don’t know Alicia Silverstone, but I feel like she’s a little clueless.”
Co-host Joy Behar disagreed and said, “I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that. The Europeans do it,” while Sunny Hostin agreed with taking the 79-year-old man.

“I’m totally with you, Joy,” Sunny said.
However, Whoopi commented, “…most kids over a certain age don’t want to sleep with you.”
As the panel was split, so were fans on social media, as one wrote, “…Think what her classmates will say to her…”
“It’s none of my business,” said another viewer.
Alicia – who in 2020 revealed she took baths with Bear when he was nine – shares the preteen with ex-husband Christopher Jarecki.
As for Whoopi, she hasn’t had a problem speaking out lately as she recently looked uncomfortable during an NSFW live chat.
The ladies of View each had their say when they spoke about removing the stigma from child sex education.
Whoopi said, “I know you don’t think elementary kids don’t experiment, they do. They touch, they feel, they want to know.”
She paused and seemed to lose her train of thought, before adding, “So it’s up to you to help them not get the wrong idea.”
Whoopi stopped for another awkward pause, then warned, “And to stay away from Pornhubs.
“You don’t want them to think that’s how you have sex.”
Sara Haines, meanwhile, looked tense as she talked about ‘penis’ and ‘vaginas’ while addressing sex education for her children.
This all comes as some fans have called for Whoopi to be fired from the popular daytime talk show.
DONE WITH WHOOPI?
Whoopi has had a rough few last weeks as the show’s moderator, which has included forgetting names and projects when they were announced.
The Oscar-winning actress also did everything from cutting Joy mid-conversation, tripping over her words, shadow singer Lizzo, and even introducing U.S. Senator Raphael Warnock.
A petition has been circulating Change.orginsisting that the TV personality be let go of her hosting duties.
It currently has over 45,000 signatures.
In Friday’s episode, Joy took over as the movie star on her day off.
This led viewers to gloat over Joy’s behavior as a moderator compared to Whoopi’s.
“Yes Joy is the moderator! Job done right,” one person said, praising the star.
Meanwhile, the panel may soon get a new face as a recent report revealed that a new Tory host could be “announced before the season ends on August 5”.
