Whoopi Goldberg, White House Gate Crashers

Rate: 2 Flag

 Whoopi Goldberg

In this May 3, 2010 file photo, Whoopi Goldberg arrives at the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute gala in New York. 

Whoopi Goldberg is hot, thanks to an alleged showdown with one of the members of The Real Housewives of DC, who was a guest on The View.

 She's accused of .... "hitting" the Real Housewife, Michaele Salahi, the notorious White House Gate Crasher. 

Yeah, of course. 

Plus, Supermodel Naomi Campbell testifies in court. She didn't know that the jewel she'd received from an African dictator was diamond. Certainly not, blood diamond. 


 Plus, did you know that singer Wyclef Jean - You remember the Fugees? - is running for president of Haiti? God save Haiti.

Charles, who could forget Wyclef Jean and Shakira in "Hips Don't Lie"? Bet none of his political opponents can put up a resume like that.
Catherine, seriously. A country is not a band.
Whoopi hits housewife?! How did I miss THAT?
I do not watch The View, but ironically, caught that segment. Salahi was insufferable. Whoopi was right to walk off the set.

Isn't the bigger news about Wyclef the IRS gut-punch?
@ Kathy: What's Wyclef the IRS-gut punch about? I missed that.
Charles, I think Kathy is referring to the $2.1 million in back taxes. Here is the link from CBS News:
