From her days as a stand-up comedian to the present talk-show host/author that she has become, Whoopi Goldberg has pretty much done it all in showbiz.

She stopped by the Howard Stern SiriusXM radio show in order to chat about her new book "If Someone Says 'You Complete Me,' RUN!: Whoopi's Big Book of Relationships."

Goldberg's new book is all about how she sees relationships and how she dishes out a lot of advice to those who are looking to get into one or are currently into one. Stern said that "If Someone Says 'You Complete Me,' RUN!: Whoopi's Big Book of Relationships." is controversial, which would actually make sense given the title of the book.

In the book Goldberg is advocating the single lifestyle according to MarksFriggin's recap.

"Whoopi said we can make decisions about things and it sort of takes us out of that realm," according to the report.

"She said it's possible that you have to do that extra mile to make a relationship work and she doesn't want to do that."

Stern revealed that Goldberg talks about her mother telling her to develop her personality because of her looks and said that she did in fact develop it.

Goldberg and Stern also talked about the "biological clock" that many people refer to when they talk about having children.

During the conversation she told Stern that it's everyone's way of telling you that you should have a child but she does not believe that everyone should.

Goldberg lost her mentor Mike Nichols and her older brother, two people she cared about dearly. She also lost someone else who was pretty instrumental in her career, actor and comedian Robin Williams.

"Howard asked her about Robin Williams and if she got to say anything to him and if she knew he was sick.

She said she did know he was sick and she spoke to him about a month and a half before he died," according to MF.

"She said that she was also with Mike 2 weeks before he died. She said that he brought her show to Broadway. Howard said he's responsible for her.

She said he is. Howard asked what kind of advice he'd give her. Whoopi said he'd tell her that it was up and down and all around and sometimes it just won't go her way. She said she got that."

Stern referred to Goldberg's vape pen which she said was one of her favorite possessions according to the interview. Goldberg even cleared up the rumors of infighting between Rosie O'Donnell and herself by saying that it's not really what is going on.

Goldberg's interview with Stern and the information in the book according to Stern, is pretty unorthodox when it comes to talking about a relationship.

It got a bit crazy at times but there was a lot os substance in the conversation that might make you think about your relationship a bit more.
