Hey guys,
Its been awhile since I updated the Whoopi page...tries to cover eyes...TWO YEARS.. but ill try to do my best as of today..

Anyway the latest latest that had people talking was that Whoopi finally was on The Oprah Winfrey Show to celebrate The Color Purple's Anniversary!
It was a great show indeed but alot of attention was given to Whoopi herself as Oprah set about to answer a few questions by Oprah..

The one that had me cracking up was that all these years, Oprah thought that Whoopi had a problem with her and Whoopi thought the same! Now I must say I myself thought this was the case because I heard a whisper that Oprah was angry at Whoopi for being casted as Celie, the main actor in The Color Purple...
What I didnt know is that Oprah didnt hate Whoopi for that! In fact Oprah admired Whoopi for her acting...

It was a bit hilarious since both of them found out that it was a simple misunderstanding...

Monday marked the beginning of yet another season of The View with Whoopi Goldberg as the Host of the daytime show.
"I'm so glad to be doing it once more, it's great to be together discussing hot topics with the other ladies." Whoopi said in a discussion with a source. There was alot of excitement in the air as all were waiting to see the final cast picture of the new season last month. Now we all know it is the same cast as last year and once more, we welcome Whoopi for doing it a second year round for us. For the past year she has done tremendously well in being a part of the show and she has finally brought some new meaning to the daytime show. As one source stated, "Whoopi has brought along with her to the show, alot of great insights on several topics and discussions that the show was lacking years before. She has done well by speaking the general truth and for speaking for us all in all issues of life."
Well for me, I am glad Whoopi is back and so am I for Joy Behar because they make quite a pair. For the past year, Whoopi has brought along with her, HER overall views on stuff being discussed and she has allowed others to know how she feels about issues that...

Every time I look
Into your lovely eyes
I see a love that money
Just can't buy

One look from you
I drift away
I pray that you
Are here to stay

REFRAIN :
Anything you want
You got it
Anything you need
you got it
Anything at all
you got it
Baby

Every time I hold you
I begin to understand
Everything about you
Tells me [I'm your best friend]

I live my life
To be with You
No one can do
The things you do

REFRAIN

I'm glad to give
My love to you
I know you feel
The way I do

REFRAIN

Nothing you could say
could tear me away from my God(my God)
Nothing you could do,
'cause I'm stuck like glue to my God
(my God,my God)

I'm sticking to my God like a stamp to a letter,
like birds of a feather,we stick together
I'm tellin' you from the start:
I can't be torn apart from my God

Nothing you could do
could make me untrue to my God(my God)
Nothing you could buy
could make me tell a lie to my God
(my God,my God)

I gave my God my word of honor
to be faithful and I'm gonna.
You best be believing I won't be deceiving my God

As a matter of opinion I think he's tops
My opinion is he's the cream of the crops
As a matter of taste,to be exact,
he's my ideal as a matter of fact.

No musclebound man could take my hand from my God (my God)
No handsome face could ever take the place of my God(myGod,MyGod)

A debate that broke out on “The View” last week was so heated, that it caused a whole lot of commotion and backlash following its airing. The ladies of “The View” had been discussing the “N” word, which led to a debate over whether the word could be used in any context.


Whoopi Goldberg tried to explain to Elizabeth Hasselbeck, why it was okay for black people to use the word, but not white people. Hasselbeck, making the point that we should be moving towards a world in which we are all the same, made the point that she didn’t think it was okay for anybody to use the word.


The debate left Hasselbeck in tears, and acknowledging that it was a very difficult conversation to have, but that they on “The View” could have it, because they loved each other. Apparently, the critics didn’t buy that there was all this “love,” and the women felt they needed to address the way in which they all relate to each other.


Barbara Walters and the rest of the women wanted to respond to critics who had lashed out against them, suggesting that the conversation had been mean-spirited or out of control. Walters...

A little older, a little quieter.

And I've gotten a little harder , just in my view of reality.

There are some things you just can't get around.

"I knew as soon as I hit that light, I was waving>> It's as much a part of my whole being as breathing. I always knew this was it. I didn't know it was going to be like this, you know. But I always knew that I wanted to act.
I grew up in a time when it would never have occurred to anyone to tell me there was anything I couldnt do. You know, I grew up in a time when the country was very pro the people who lived in it. That's why as many changes were able to happen, the March on Washington came into reality. People really believed that they had a stake in the country. So there were all kinds of Invitations to make the country better. So there was never for me, anyone saying, "No, you're going to fail," or "No, there's no place for you." The only thing my mom ever said to me was,"It may be tough, but what isn't?"

"I hate people expecting me to be more than I am. Expecting me to live up to their expectations, when perhaps I can't. People forgetting that I get cranky, and I get crabby, and I dont always want to be Whoopi Goldberg. Somedays I'm just not in the mood.
..................................................................................................

The lack of privacy is tough. I went to the bathroom once and people followed me in, and a lady put her hand up under the stall with a pen and a piece of paper, said she wanted my autograph, I said, could I just finish what Im doing first? So sometimes people just forget, or they grab you and they dont realise that, you know, you're a person that feels. They grab my hair.
..................................................................................................

People grab my hair and go, Whoopi>>> And not realise that I dont mind saying hello, but hey>> That hurt, you know. Or when you're rushing, or you're preoccupied and you just cant stop. People arent always understanding. And so you feel bad because you dont want them to think I'll think bad of you. And you...

I found out that I was dyslexic when I was a grown woman. When I was a kid they didnt call it dyslexic. They called it... you know, you were slow, or you were retarded, or whatever.
..................................................................................................

And so, I learned from a guy who was running a program who I met one day and he had written out on a board a sentence. And I said to him, "You know, I cant read that." And he said,"why not?" And I said,"Because it doesnt make any sense to me." So he said,"Well, write down what you see under each letter. Whatever you see, write exactly what you see underneath." And so, he brought me to letters by coordinating what I saw to something called an A, or a B, or a C, or a D, and that was pretty cool.
Once you got into the habit of doing it, it became much easier.
..................................................................................................

Probably by the time people see this in 2025, they will have been able to eliminate it. They will be able to eliminate it with just an adjustment, a little implant.

"Come on, come on.
..................................................................................................

You know, be an actor because you love to act. Don't be an actor because you think you're going to get famous, because that's luck. But if it's what you want to do with your whole heart and your whole soul, come on.
..................................................................................................

Go everywhere, learn everything. Learn Shakespeare. Shakespeare is great fun. Don't be thrown by the words. The words are the same words that we use with a little different implementation. Write things for yourself.
..................................................................................................

Come on, it's a great way to spend time. It's a great way to learn history. It's a great way to learn all kinds of things.

ANd u believe that uve seen all of Whoopi Goldberg as yet?
Well of course uve not if u havent seen Eddie.
..................................................................................................

Whoopi G plays a sassy fan of the NY knicks who eventually, maybe out of luck or bad fortune wins Honorary COach of the day.
..................................................................................................

THe owner of the team, Mr WIld Bill Burgess, sees Edwina as a little lady who the fans wanna come ssee to liven up the game, and as the crowd get larger and he makes more money, we begin to realise he is using her to get what he wants.
..................................................................................................

She trys her best to liven up the failing team who so badly needs assistance and in the process she fixes a bad marriage, teaches english to one of the players and learns to dance.

All the fans of Angelina Jolie and Winona Ryder must have seen this fantastic movie at least once.
..................................................................................................

And perhaps u would find the spot for this movie interesting to u. In that case, u must check it out and contribute as much as u could to the spot.
..................................................................................................

Based on the book by Susannah Kaesan, it is a lovely story about a girl who people thought was mentally disturbed. The story goes on and on spectaculary to tell how she lives in Claymoore, a mental institution where the head nurse of the ward, Whoopi GOldberg test her and all of the girls' nerves in trying to prove to them that they arent mad and can get out of it.
..................................................................................................

Of course being a major Whoopi Goldberg fan, I found it important to create a spot for this movie, and so would any fan have done.

This movie was meant to be inspirational to me and what I would like to say is that it was a success.

From the very first time I looked at this movie, I began to realise, you know what, I have to share what I think about the movie with others even if u havent looked at it as yet.
..................................................................................................

And one of the only ways to do that is to create a spot for this movie and hope that people join and share what they think about the movie.
..................................................................................................

So I hope u guys join and contribute to the spot.
..................................................................................................

Thank you

Whoopi Goldberg was introduced as the show's latest co-host Wednesday, joining Barbara Walters, Joy Behar and Elisabeth Hasselbeck on the panel of ABC's hit daytime show.

Goldberg replaces Rosie O'Donnell, who ended her controversial -- but ratings-boosting -- tenure in May.

Goldberg has won an Oscar, Emmy, Grammy and Tony in her career. The Oscar was a best supporting actress award for her performance in 1990's "Ghost."

"I love this show," Goldberg, 51, said upon joining the panel on Wednesday's show. "I love coming on it. I love hanging out with you guys."

O'Donnell approved of the choice. "Whoopi is fantastic in every way. She's perfect for the job. She's amazing and one of my favorites," she said in a statement.

"The View" has been undergoing tumult and turnover since the spring of 2006. In April 2006, longtime co-host Meredith Vieira announced her departure for NBC's "Today" show. Later that month, the show announced it had signed O'Donnell as its new panelist.

Whoopi Goldberg was born Caryn Johnson in New York City. Her mother, a nurse and teacher, raised her daughter and a son on her own after Whoopi's preacher father left the family. The future star spent the first years of her life in a public housing project in Manhattan. Drawn to the theater from earliest childhood, she made her performing debut at age eight with the Helena Rubinstein Children's Theatre at the Hudson Guild. After dropping out of high school at 14, she lied about her age to find work as a summer camp counselor, and singing in the choruses of the Broadway shows Hair, Jesus Christ Superstar and Pippin. After surviving an early experience with drug addiction, she married at age 18, and gave birth to a daughter, Alexandrea.

After breaking with her husband, she and Alexandrea moved to California in 1974. The following year she helped found the San Diego Repertory Theatre and joined the improvisational theater group Spontaneous Combustion. It was at this time that Caryn Johnson adopted her distinctive stage name -- Whoopi Goldberg -- and began to develop the character monologues that were to make her famous. After moving to the San Francisco Bay Area, she...

Well, if anyone ever asked me that question, I would answer by saying that it is because she truly inspires me to be who I am. When anyone hear of her, they normally turn their faces away in disgust, but have you ever read her life story, or even truly considered who she really is inside out? No. All people do is critise her and say that she's ugly. I think she is beautiful outside and inside because she has done so much to be read that way. Not only speaking as a huge fan, but to me, she's done so much to be recognised in America and all over the world.
Well, why I say that she inspires me is because she has shown us how far acting can go and how standing up for your rights is important. She is so kool and she speaks her mind, which is sometimes harsh, but when we consider it, someone should have said it sometime.
So if you have a problem wid her, zip it up cuz its not going to hurt her in anyway because I wanna see you achieve what she did and do what she did in life.
