When there are thirteen women (no excuse me that’s fourteen, when you add the woman from yesterday) accusing Bill Cosby of rape, that’s probably a good moment to quietly reevaluate some things and maybe make a phone call to ol’ Bill, if you have his number. But not if you’re Whoopi Goldberg, who elected to air her skepticism right out in the open on The View. AWESOME. More
Guys, I finally discovered the worst Lifetime movie to ever play out in front of my eyeballs, and it’s called A Day Late and a Dollar Short. More
Congratulations again to Sasheer Zamata, the newest addition to the Saturday Night Live cast. But as happy as I am that they’ve finally added a black woman to the cast, I’m betting no one is more relieved than Kenan Thompson. More
Long gone are the days where you can only look forward to a post-high school life of stupid math and stupid history papers and other things that I might also describe as stupid. Because, now, once you get to that alcohol palace that we call the American higher education system, you can study the stuff you really care about. Like pop music and candy. More
The hosts of ABC’s let’salltalkovereachother show The View are dropping like flies. First it was announced that long-time co-host and professional shirt-tugger Joy Behar would be leaving. Then rumors started swirling that Elisabeth Hasselbeck’s contract wasn’t being renewed (I read it on the Internet, so it’s obviously true!) Now sources are suggesting that Barbara Walters is considering an exit. More
Hi! How’s your day going? Guess what? There’s a chance your dad once jerked off to the sound of Whoopi Goldberg‘s voice! More
Did you even know that there was a 3-D version of Lion King being re-released in theaters? Neither did we until very recently, but suffice to say it’s a head-scratcher. Why the need to mess with a childhood favorite, and will people even shell out the money to see it? We may never know, but we will definitely watch this blooper reel that Disney put out to drum up interest in the movie. In the video, Simba, Scar, and Mufasa screw up their lines and miss cues, just like live actors.
But it did make us ask one big question: Which came first, the flubbed lines or the animation? More
his happened yesterday on The View. Do you think that when Whoopi Goldberg touched Justin Bieber‘s shoulders little wings sprouted and pixies flew out, encircling the set and sprinkling fairy dust on everyone except Elisabeth Hasselbeck? More
Obviously I know what Ghost is about: Patrick Swayze gets killed in a mugging, but his spirit continues to linger around mourning girlfriend Demi Moore, who hires a medium played by Whoopi Goldberg to try and communicate with him. But I know nothing about the characters’ lives — aside from Moore’s predilection for pottery — or how the movie ends.
London’s Piccadilly Theatre is premiering Ghost The Musical, which looks to be a bit flashier than the 1990 movie. Going only by the newly-released trailer, and without peeking at Wikipedia, here are my predictions for the plot. More
Hey everyone, remember that rumor floating around that Neil Patrick Harris was going to host this year’s Tony Awards? Well, it’s not a rumor anymore! On Tuesday, it was announced that Harris will, in fact, emcee the 2011 ceremony. In the press release, Harris notes that he’s both “honored” and “stoked” to have been asked to host. “It should be a great show,” he says. “We’ve got a fantastic mix of live performances, a few secret surprises, and since they’re closed for retooling, we’re using all the rigging equipment from Spider-Man. What could possibly go wrong?” Ceremony producers Ricky Kirshner and Glenn Weiss go on to say that they’re thrilled to have him, and that they’re “even happier he fits in the Spider-Man rigging.” More
Although it’s still fairly new, The Book of Mormon, a new musical penned by South Park masterminds Trey Parker and Matt Stone, is the place to be seen for Hollywood’s A-listers. In the past two nights alone, the audience has included Cameron Diaz, Steve Martin, and Anna Wintour (who, yes, kept her sunglasses on the entire time). More
We know that this wax figure of Whoopi Goldberg on display at Madame Tussaud’s is to commemorate the West End’s production of Sister Act, but it’s much funnier to think about it as some weird senior’s art thesis project. “The statement I was trying to make with this piece is that America’s morality is now filtered through mediums such as The View and the 24-hour news-cycle. Whoopi as a nun represents the merging of television and religion. Also, screw you dad, this wasn’t a waste of an education.” More
