Ted met Whoopi while appearing at the Arsenio Hall Show back in 1988. It was not love from the first sight, and the two were just being friends while co-hosting Help Save Planet Earth. Nevertheless, they started romantic relations after working in Made in America.

I’d walk in Whoopi’s shadow for the rest of my life—I adore the woman.

The couple faced lots of critics after Ted’s appearance in blackface at The Friars Club comedy roast in honor of Goldberg. During the performance, he said various racial jokes and used offensive words. But Goldberg still tried to support and defend him, saying:

Let's get these words all out in the open. It took a whole lot of courage to come out in blackface in front of 3,000 people. I don't care if you didn't like it. I did.

Ted has even left his wife, Casey Coates, and his two young children, for Whoopi. They were planning to officially create a family together, but reportedly, Ted’s parents pressured him to break up with the woman he loved so much.

According to National Enquirer :

They made plans to wed as soon as (Ted) could get a divorce, but under pressure from his parents, he dumped Whoopi.

In 1994, Goldberg and Danson broke up and continued living single lives. Shortly after, Ted fell in love with Mary Steenburgen, and they are still inseparable. Whoopie wasn’t single for a long time, as well: She married the union organizer Lyle Trachtenberg, but divorced him after a year of marriage.
