Whoopi Goldberg will have you over, but stay for good? No way. "When you make a commitment to live with someone else, it's a commitment to ask their opinion and listen and work it out with them. I don't want to do that," the 64-year-old said Monday on the Tamron Hall Show, per USA Today. "I don't want to share money. I know it's terrible, but I don't want to." She isn't the only celeb questioning cohabitation, with Big Bang Theory actor Kaley Cuoco saying earlier this month that she and hubby Karl Cook live apart, at least while their house is being built. "The older I get, I know now what works for me," Cuoco said last week on the Brad Behavior podcast. "We've been together for almost four years."

Then there's Gwyneth Paltrow, who said in June she only lives part-time with husband Brad Falchuk. The View co-host Meghan McCain criticized Paltrow's style, but Goldberg said she totally gets it. "You can come and cook, you can come and hang out, you can sleep [over], and then you gotta go home," Goldberg said. "I don't want your drawers on the bathroom floor!" It's nothing new for the EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony award) winner, either: "I'm much happier on my own," she told the New York Times in 2016. "I don't want somebody in my house." (In related news, Whoopi criticized an anti-Trump tweet by Debra Messing.)
