“Honestly, when I was around you, I loved you so much, like I just wanted to be up underneath the titty the whole time," she said. "But that's also because you just kind of gave me lesbian vibes! You give me lesbian vibes, you give me stud vibes."

"I am not a lesbian," she continued. "But I know lots of them, and I've played them on television. But I have always had lesbian friends because they're just my friends."

Whoopi has previously been married three times — first in the '70s to drug counselor Alvin Martin, then to cinematographer David Claessen in the '80s, and then to actor Lyle Trachtenberg in the '90s.

Currently, Whoopi appears to be single — but it doesn't seem like she's interested in settling down. She previously told the New York Times: "I'm much happier on my own. I can spend as much time with somebody as I want to spend, but I'm not looking to be with somebody forever or live with someone."
