  5. I hope it was at least related to the conversation since Dr. Oz was there. (Sorry can't see the vid at work). Grr.

  7. They could change the name of the show to "The Phew!

  8. Whoopie is obnoxious. It's hard for me to watch her movies because of her personality and habit of defending people's horrible behavior (like Tiger Woods, Chris Brown, etc).

  9. Classless.

  10. Isn't she a spokeswoman for Depends or something like it? Maybe it was "product placement."

  11. I'm surprised they didn't quarantine ten square miles around the block and fill the studio with concrete. That woman looks like she's never eaten a vegetable or piece of fruit.

  13. Whoopi didn't break wind. She was merely speaking for Elizabeth Hasselbeck.

  14. The fart is smarter then elizabeth. Why did Whoopie go on TV with those awful socks and shoes?

  15. That's a scream.

    I think you uppity bitches need to let a few rip yourselves. Y'all go something backed up in there.

  16. Can someone re-upload this so the rest of the internet can see it?

  17. Lighten up, people. I don't understand why people get so uppity about something that 100% of people do.

  18. Poor Barbara looked perfectly scandalized

  19. For those who may not know it, between using her birth name, Caryn Johnson, and becoming Whoopi Goldberg, she used the stage name "Whoopi Cushion" ( with the French pronunciation ... "Koo-Shone") while working comedy in San Diego ... Seriously! No lie!

    From NY Times interview 08/20/2006

    You were born Caryn Johnson. How did you wind up with the name Whoopi?

    Here’s the thing. When you’re performing on stage, you never really have time to go into the bathroom and close the door. So if you get a little gassy, you’ve got to let it go. So people used to say to me, You are like a whoopee cushion. And that’s where the name came from.

    If you find it rude to comb your hair in public, as you’ve said on your show, how can you possibly justify public acts of flatulence?

    Is it bad manners if you say, I really have to cut this?
