The Clueless star, who now works as a contributor for Fox News, hit headlines in February (15) after claiming she was "appalled" by actress Patricia Arquette's stirring women's rights Oscars speech, during which she called for equal pay for equal work. Dash went one step further during a recent interview with U.S. journalist Meredith Vieira, when she urged her fellow females to "stop making excuses".

In the chat, which aired in the U.S. on Wednesday (29Apr15), Dash said, "If there are opportunities, seize them and be prepared for them and be the best if that's what it takes. If you have to be extraordinary then be extraordinary."

Her comments made for an uncomfortable interview with Vieira, who reminded Dash that the average woman makes 78 cents for every dollar a man makes in the same position, and now Goldberg has weighed in on the issue.

Addressing Dash's remarks on her U.S. talk show The View on Thursday (30Apr15), Goldberg said, "I don't know what land you're living in Stacey, but good intentions is not enough to bring the pay scale to equality. Being the best is not enough, sorry.

"It may be for you, but I and probably a 100 million other women have to say, 'You know, we are the best at what we do and we still don't get paid equally.'"

Guest co-host Raven-Symone blamed Dash's status as a sex symbol for helping the 48 year old reach the position she is in, adding, "I think she's living in the land of Hollywood and she's already a semi-sex symbol... and I feel like... she's not overly sexual at all, but in society, we tend to oversexualise females. I feel like they might get paid more for what they stand for for men. (But) if you're in a suit and whatever, they might feel threatened, in a way."

Dash's interview on The Meredith Vieira Show aired on the same day Catholic leader Pope Francis branded the gender pay gap a "pure scandal".
