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. This is New York City, after all, so naturally many of the partygoers were in head-to-toe black looks. Adorably preggers Evan Rachel Wood was radiant in a flattering black halter dress, and Sienna Miller looked rad in a short black-on-black floral frock that showcased her killer shoes. Both Karolina Kurkova and Rachel Roy chose pantsuit looks for the occasion, and Whoopi Goldberg looked like the awesomest good witch/cool aunt ever in her trademark Cool Flowy Black Thing. (I love Whoopi.) So! Who do you think wore black better at the Vanity Fair party? It’s a tough call, right?
Whoopi Goldberg rocked her finest, funny footwear for the “Sister Act” premiere in Paris this week. I need to know where I can purchase a pair of these, stat. I hope they’re not too slippery though.
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.

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” this morning was not so lucky: Whoopi Goldberg began discussing her love for porn and then criticized the changing appearances of the actresses’ pudendas. Really, that’s the word she used — pudendas. Keep reading »
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] Keep reading »
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 asked her, “Did I do something to you?” And Oprah admitted that she thought she had done something wrong. Both thought the other one was mad, but neither knew what to do about it — for years. It seems ridiculous that two such powerful and famous women would both be so paralyzed to fix a fractured friendship. And yet! Women (and it does seem to be a distinctly female thing) seem to do this all the time — a small bout of silence turns into a cavernous, deep rift. Have you ever had a friendship break down over a similar kind of miscommunication? Keep reading »
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 “View” visit last week
, where both Whoopi Goldberg
and Joy Behar walked off set in the midst of O’Reilly’s interview. [USA Today

“I don’t know who Snooki is.”
Wait, I voted for this man?
When President Barack Obama visited “The View” this morning, people living in red states and blue states alike crowded around the TV for the big event. In between cute anecdotes about Sasha and Malia and softball questions about Lindsay Lohan’s jail sentence, he fielded questions about Afghanistan, unemployment, racism, and the economy. And yes, the show’s token conservative, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, behaved herself. Keep reading »
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 woman who gave us “Sister Act,” but yesterday Elisabeth started licking at her heels once again. In a discussion about a study that says more and more women are coming out as lesbians later in life, Hasselbeck concluded that the reason is simple — “All the older men are going for younger women, leaving the women with no one.” Hear that, lesbians? Desperation is to blame! [Advocate
