She didn’t hold anything back in her interview with Essence about Whoopi Goldberg, her famous grandmother. A 32-year-old woman named Skye is currently featured on the ABC reality show “Claim To Fame,” hosted by Kevin and Frankie Jonas.
This show features 12 celebrity relatives living in a house together in order to conceal their celebrity status. As Goldberg admits, she was initially uneasy about participating in the contest that pays $100,000 to the winner.
“She was scared,” she told the prestigious magazine. As long as everything went as it was supposed to, she was happy. One of the best pieces of advice she gave me was to just do what I’ve got to do and to come back stronger, better, and prepared.
Additionally, the actress and co-host of The View get on her nerves sometimes, but that’s normal for relatives. The only thing people know about my grandmother is that she is Whoopi. Her messages are political, she’s iconic, but that’s the viewer’s opinion,” Skye said.
In addition to being my grandmother, she is also a real grandmother. The lucky ones who have grandmothers know that grandmothers are annoying and they are like another parent to them. She’s annoying, but you know she’s family.”
In the end, Skye appreciates their unique bond. “My grandmother and I are really close. She is everything to me. It gets frustrating because I think, how can I compete with that? It’s a lucky thing I’ve got that.”
