 Whoopi Goldberg Celebrates ‘The View’ Crew Member’s Engagement with Heartfelt On-Air Tribute


Whoopi Goldberg, the iconic TV host of ABC’s daytime show “The View,” took a moment in Monday’s episode to celebrate a joyous occasion for a member of their team.

Goldberg, 68, began the episode by congratulating Nikki Cain, an associate social media producer for the show, on her recent engagement. The camera focused on Cain, who was adorned with a glittery pink sash reading “Bride-to-Be,” as Goldberg introduced her to the audience, leading to a round of applause and cheers.

Cain, visibly moved by the moment, responded with waves, kisses, and a display of her engagement ring, which led her to become tearful. Co-host Ana Navarro shared her excitement about the news, recounting how she learned of the engagement over the weekend while preparing for a CNN segment. Navarro recalled how Cain FaceTimed her to share the joyous news.

Further adding to the celebration, Sara Haines humorously mentioned how the hosts had previously inquired with Cain’s future mother-in-law about the anticipated engagement. Sunny Hostin then shared that Cain and her fiancé, James Rainey, have been together for five years, describing them as “a match made in heaven.”

Cain, still emotional, expressed her gratitude for the heartwarming recognition. She spoke about growing up on the show and how celebrating with the team was the perfect conclusion to an already perfect day.

While Goldberg expressed enthusiasm for Cain’s engagement, it raised questions about whether she would attend the wedding. In a previous episode in September, Goldberg revealed her unusual stance on attending weddings, stating, “I don’t go to weddings.” This revelation had surprised co-host Joy Behar, who pointed out that Goldberg had attended her 2011 wedding.

Goldberg explained that Behar’s wedding was an exception, citing her love for the reason behind Behar’s marriage. She admired the practicality of Behar marrying for both love and future security, a sentiment that resonated with her.

The segment highlighted the close-knit atmosphere of “The View” and its celebration of personal milestones among its team members. “The View” airs weekdays at 11 a.m. ET on ABC.
