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, gets in trouble for offensive and controversial remarks or actions. (Unfortunately for Whoopi, the Devil doesn’t pay for her services.) Seriously, if you are a dude making headlines for saying/doing something shitty, the rest of the country may be facepalming, but Whoopi’s got your back! To compile this list of all the dumbass dudes Whoopi has caped for, I simply typed “Whoopi defends” into Google — and the results spoke for themselves…

A Woman Misidentified As UVA’s Jackie Is Taking Legal Action Against Chuck Johnson

  • A woman identified by (Living Piece Of Poop) Chuck Johnson as UVA’s Jackie isn’t Jackie, and is pressing charges. (Jezebel)
  • Bill Cosby Defender Whoopi Goldberg interviewed Bill Cosby Victim Beverly Johnson, and it was as ridiculous as you’d imagine on Whoopi’s part. (Death and Taxes)
  • Another horrifying story about a lack of justice for rape victims on university campuses has come out of the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. (VICE Sports)
  • Female researchers at universities are at as much of a risk as the rest of the female population of being raped, especially by their supervisors. (Atlantic) Keep reading »

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. When the subject came up on “The View,” Goldberg was all about the victim blaming: “Quite honestly, you know, look, I’m sorry, having been on both sides of this where people allege that you do something, it doesn’t matter now. The cat is out of the bag, people have it in their heads. I have a lot of questions for the lady. Maybe she’ll come on … I hope that there is justice for this lady. I hope somebody gets to the bottom of this, but I’m going to reserve my judgment because I have a lot of questions, as I said. It’s crazy, but I have a lot of questions, because I know we all have friends who have gone through this.” Excuse me while I vom as Goldberg uses her public platform to discourage victims from ever coming forward again. Also, when was the last time a celebrity was accused of something and Whoopi didn’t come rushing to their defense? [Death and Taxes]

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

Sorry, Sam

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 bloopers and inconsistencies. And terrible early-’90s special effects. Enjoy!

Whoopi Goldberg Addresses Rumors She’ll Take Over “The Late Show”

  • Whoopi Goldberg shot down rumors that she’ll be leaving “The View” to take over David Letterman’s spot at “The Late Show” when he retires in 2015. Which is a major bummer, because we could use some more ladies in late night. [The Wrap]
  • It isn’t cool that Lindsay Lohan supposedly wasn’t on her best behavior at an AA meeting. [I would like to call bullshit on the "source" who says it's "unheard of" to arrive late and leave early. -- Amelia] It also isn’t cool that anyone blabs about what goes on at an AA meeting, which is supposed to be PRIVATE. [RadarOnline]
  • This picture of Kim Kardashian’s sandy beach butt is everything. [Daily Mail UK]
  • Wait, Blondie frontwoman Debbie Harry is bisexual?! No one sent us the memo! [Autostraddle]
  • Friends and family of Peaches Geldof remember the model and writer, who died suddenly today at age 25. [US Weekly] Keep reading »

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

Watch Whoopi Goldberg Roll A Sad Looking Joint On "Watch What Happens Live"
Roll One Up!

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. You know, of oregano. Or tobacco. Pick your poison! Anyway, Whoopi was probably feeling the pressure of a time limit because her doobie broke midway through. Rolling a tight, fat joint means taking your time, man. A producer signaling to go to commercial would totally harsh my mellow too.
