She would rather live alone.
In 2016, Goldberg made headlines when she told the New York Times that she was “not that interested” in getting married, mainly because she preferred living alone. She claimed to be considerably happier by herself at the time. “I can spend as much time with somebody as I want to spend, but I’m not looking to be with somebody forever or live with someone.”

In her words, “I don’t want somebody in my house.”

In November 2019, the comic reiterated his ideas on The Tamron Hall Show. She said to host Tamron Hall, “People keep saying, ‘Well, you’ll find somebody.’” “I’m not trying to find anybody. I’m overjoyed. I’m not interested in living with anyone.”
