Whoopi Goldberg Is Somehow Still Defending Bill Cosby

Whoopi Goldberg! I should have known that the host of “The View” – and the unofficial defense attorney for every piece of shit dude celeb ever – would find a way to continue defending Bill Cosby, even after his own admission of guilt has been made public.

Whoopi Defends: 13 Famous Men Whoopi Goldberg Has Stood Up For

In my opinion, Whoopi Goldberg’s most memorable role is not Deloris in “Sister Act” and “Sister Act 2,” or Oda Mae in “Ghost,” or even Guinan on “Star Trek: The Next Generation.” No, to me, Whoopi will always be best known for playing Devil’s advocate each and every goddamn time some asinine man, usually famous,…

Whoopi Goldberg Doesn’t Believe Bill Cosby’s Rape Accuser

Whoopi Goldberg is doubting Barbara Bowman’s accusation that Bill Cosby assaulted her when she was 17 — no matter that over a dozen women have come forward with similar allegations.

“Everything Wrong With ‘Ghost’ Explained In 11 Minutes”

I don’t think I’ve seen “Ghost” for about 20 years, back when A) my mother had a crush on Patrick Swayze and B) everything in this movie went over my kindergarten-aged head. It’s probably just as well, because as this new video by CinemaSins so helpfully points out, “Ghost” has more than a few blooper…

Watch Whoopi Goldberg Roll A Sad Looking Joint On “Watch What Happens Live”

On last night’s episode of “Watch What Happens Live,” during the segment in which Andy Cohen’s celeb guest demonstrates their special talent, Whoopi Goldberg showed Andy and actress Zoe Saldana how to roll a joint.

Who Had The Best Look In Black At The Tribeca Film Festival Vanity Fair Party?

The Tribeca Film Festival began with a bang last night with its star-studded Vanity Fair kick-off gala. Countless familiar New York City names were spotted at the annual event, from the festival’s founder Robert De Niro to “socialite” and headband-wearer Arden Wohl.

Whoopi Goldberg Blew A Little Frog Out Of Her Butt On “The View”

The best farting moments are ones that A) occur at inappropriate moments (like when Claire Danes is talking about identity), B) are acknowledged by the farter, and C) are referred to as something cute like “blowing a little frog out of there.” Congrats, Whoopi Goldberg, you may have just achieved best fart of the year.

Whoopi Goldberg Talks Porn, Pudendas & Brazilian Waxing On “The View”

I’m all for frank talk about sex, pornography, and women’s ladyparts. In fact, I try to freak out Amelia with my favorite gross phrase for my nether regions on the regular. [Ick. — Editor] But even I don’t want to think about Brazilian waxing while I’m sipping my morning coffee.

Anyone watching “The View”…

Whoopi Goldberg Manages To Channel “Sister Act” And “Harry Potter” In One Outfit

Whoopi Goldberg attended the premiere of the “Sister Act” musical in Hamburg, Germany, wearing a getup that reminds me of a mean old nun and a crotchety old wizard. Well, I can’t say I’m surprised by her outfit, though. This is so her style. [12/2/10]…

Have You Ever Had An Inexplicably Fractured Friendship?

So apparently Oprah Winfrey and Whoopi Goldberg didn’t speak for several years after starring in “The Color Purple” together. According to the pair — who spoke about their distanced friendship on today’s “Oprah” — their standoff ended after Whoopi spoke with Oprah on the set of “For Colored Girls…,” which Whoopi’s currently starring in. Whoopi…

The women of “The View” definitely learned one thing from Stephen Colbert’s visit yesterday: Don’t mess with Papa Bear. That’s Colbert’s nickname for Bill O’Reilly. In a show of solidarity with O’Reilly, Colbert pretended to walk off the set of “The View” yesterday during his segment. Colbert’s gesture was in reference to O’Reilly’s controversial

Elisabeth Hasselbeck Knows What Turns Older Women Gay

After Whoopi Goldberg defended Mel Gibson (after also defending Roman Polanski and Michael Vick, amongst others), I found myself thinking, Hell hath frozen over — Elisabeth Hasselbeck is no longer the biggest ding-a-ling on “The View.” Whoopi still offends me more, on principle, perhaps because I expect a little more out of the woma…
