President Obama Visits “The View” To Talk The Economy, Jobs, Race, And Snooki

“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 »

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 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] Keep reading »

According To Whoopi Goldberg, Mel Gibson Isn’t “Racist Racist”


Newsflash! Whoopi Goldberg, a black woman, wants to assure you that she knows Mel Gibson and despite what the actor allegedly says on those tapes released this week, he is not a racist. Mel Gibson has been inside Whoopi’s house and hung out with her daughter and since they are both black, his deigning them with his presence means he is so not a racist. Essentially, that is what Goldberg argued during “The View”‘s Hot Topics segment yesterday, when the gals were discussing Mel’s screaming rant at ex Oksana Grigorieva, in which he told her that if she were raped by a pack of n***ers it would be her fault. Whoopi doesn’t approve of Gibson’s language, of course — she goes as far as to call him boneheaded! — but his use of the n-word, in her opinion, does not make him a racist. Keep reading »

Tyler Perry Casts All-Stars In “For Colored Girls … “

I haven’t been a fan of Tyler Perry since I figured out his formula — no-good man wrongs strong black woman who is saved by do-right man with a lot of Madea thrown in for comic relief. That being said, I’m really excited to see his film version of Ntosake Shange’s acclaimed play “For Colored Girls Who’ve Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf.” This 1975 choreopoem, as Shange named it, consists of 20 poems performed by nameless women, who are known only by the color they wear. It explores the black woman’s experience with abandonment, love, domestic violence, rape, and abortion.

The characters in “For Colored Girls … ” speak to many women throughout the stages of their lives, which might be one reason Perry was able to secure such an all-star cast. Keep reading »

Whoopi Goldberg Doesn’t Like Rape Jokes


Sometimes it’s not what is said that’s funny but the reaction to what is said that brings on the LOLs. Take for example the subtle interaction between actress Sofia Vergara, from the new comedy “Modern Family,” and Whoopi Goldberg on today’s episode of “The View.” When the ladies mention that very young-looking Vergara has an 18-year-old son, she jokes that she had her kid when she was 13. “I was raped,” she giggles. Everyone else pretty much ignores her bad joke, but Whoopi’s face is priceless. Later in the interview, Vergara laments that since her son is going to college, she’ll be all alone for the first time in her life. “I need a man!” she exclaims. After watching Whoopi’s reaction to that line, something tells me she’s going to be enjoying a stiff martini with her lunch today. Keep reading »

Whoopi Goldberg: “The Reason Black Women Want Straight Hair Is Because It’s Manageable”


Today on “The View,” the ladies discussed “Good Hair,” a documentary by Chris Rock. Whoopi Goldberg made the startling revelation that black women don’t straighten their hair because they want to be white, but because they want manageable hair. “It’s less about the larger culture and more about ‘I don’t want to fuss with my hair,” she said. But that’s only half the story. Nowadays, we realize that beauty can come in different forms, but we can’t ignore the beauty ideals that are presented to us on a daily basis in magazines, TV, and the web. Silky, non-coarse hair is the standard. Whoopi alludes to this but ultimately skirts over it when she says that in beauty school she was taught to do everyone’s hair but black people’s.

What The Hell Is “Rape-Rape”?


We’ve already posted about Roman Polanski being arrested this weekend for that decades-old “sex with a minor” conviction, but after watching the ladies of “The View” argue over the issue this morning, I felt compelled to write more. For starters, in the clip above, Whoopi Goldberg, who I never expected to be a rape apologist, coins a term I’ve never heard before — “rape-rape.” Apparently “rape-rape” is NOT when you drug a 13-year-old girl with alcohol and a Quaalude and then have anal sex with her. That’s something else that’s, apparently, not as bad. WTF? Keep reading »

Whoopi Makes Love To Broccoli

This morning, we posted the PETA ad that is too sexy to air during the Super Bowl. Well, we weren’t the only ladies discussing it. Because “The View” couldn’t air the ad before they discussed it during the Hot Topics portion of the show, Whoopi acted it out for everyone. Go to ABC.com to watch their discussion of PETA’s ad.
