Whoopi Goldberg Wears Minnie Mouse Shoes to Accept D23 Legends Award

Whoopi Goldberg wears a pair of Minnie Mouse shoes while walking the carpet at the D23 Legends Awards ceremony held on Friday morning (July 14) in Anaheim, Calif.

The legendary actress and entertainer was a surprise honoree at the event and she is now billed as the world’s first LEGOT if you add the Legends Award to her Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony.

“I was born the same year the park opened,” Whoopi said during her acceptance speech. “And my mother always said, ‘One day I’m going to take you kids [to Disney].’”

“Instead, I got to take her,” she added. “Disney made you feel that no matter where you came from, you were welcome.”

Whoopi Goldberg Vows to Come After Fake News Story Writer

Whoopi Goldberg was the victim of a fake news story and she says she is “coming” for the person who wrote it after it “endangered” her life.

A fake news story falsely stated that Whoopi believed a fallen Navy SEAL was celebrated during President Trump‘s address to a joint session of Congress just for attention.

“Before we left, something came out on a website — a fake news website — about me. And it endangered my family’s life and it endangered my life. It turns out the entire website was created by a guy who just wanted to see how quickly stories he made up would spread,” Whoopi said during the show on Monday (March 13). “If you say, ‘Whoopi did this,’ people just assume it’s true because nobody has to prove anything. I have had for the last 20 years great relationships with vets and their wives and the veteran’s administration, so when someone writes a bit of a horrible lie, as this man did — he accused me of saying that the woman that was celebrated by the current president, whose husband died, was doing it for the attention.”

“Now, normally people would have to actually have to look up to see what someone said. And when you look on our website, you can see everything that we say — our shows are posted. But unfortunately, people don’t do that,” Whoopi added.

Whoopi wants to have legislation passed so that fake news doesn’t get posted without the person’s permission.

“I know you’re in Costa Rica sir … If I hadn’t been made aware of this, I could have found out about this at the end of a barrel of a gun,” Whoopi said. “So I’m going to try and get some legislation going that says, ‘If you’re going to involve someone in fake news, you should have their permission. You shouldn’t be able to just put stuff out there.’ Because clearly you don’t care what could have happened to me, or to my family — or the fact that there’s a lot of people who said, ‘Well, I know you said it.’”

Whoopi said that she wants these protections in place even to benefit Trump.

“And just so we’re clear, just so we’re really clear, I want these protections in place for the current president, for his family, for my family. Because if you write something like that, or you write something that endangers his life or his family’s life, I’m just as angry at you,” Whoopi said. “So again, it is a lie, all you have to do is check the website and see what actually went on on the show that day. But sir, the fact that you don’t give a crap that it endangered me is unconscionable and I’m going to get my lawyer and I’m coming for you.”

Tiffany Trump Responds to Whoopi Goldberg After NYFW Seating Controversy

Tiffany Trump is responding to Whoopi Goldberg after she made headlines at New York Fashion Week when some fashion editors reportedly would not sit next to her in the front row at a show.

This week, Whoopi spoke out in defense of Tiffany on The View.

“You know what, Tiffany, I’m supposed to go to a couple more shows. I don’t know what’s going to happen, but I’m coming to sit with you….Because nobody’s talking politics. You’re looking at fashion! She doesn’t want to talk about her dad! She’s looking at the fashion!” Whoopi said. “And people say what is the difference between people boycotting Ivanka. There is a difference. That’s all about buying stuff. You’re buying stuff. This girl is looking at fashion, and she’s just looking at fashion.”

“I don’t want to talk about your dad, but, girl, I will sit next to you. Because I’ve been there where people said, ‘We’re not going to sit next to you.’ I’ll find your ass and sit next to you!” Whoopi continued.

Dustin Lance Black's 'When We Rise' Gets First Trailer from ABC

Oscar-winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black has written every episode of the upcoming event series When We Rise for ABC and the first trailer has been released!

The seven-episode mini-series stars Guy Pearce, Mary-Louise Parker, Rachel Griffiths, Whoopi Goldberg, Rosie O’Donnell, and more. It is set to premiere in February.

When We Rise chronicles the personal and political struggles, set-backs and triumphs of a diverse family of LGBT men and women who helped pioneer one of the last legs of the U.S. Civil Rights movement from its turbulent infancy in the 20th century to the once unfathomable successes of today. The period piece tells the history of the gay rights movement, starting with the Stonewall Riots in 1969.

Also in the cast are Carrie Preston, Michael Kenneth Williams, Jonathan Majors, and young Broadway talent Emily Skeggs and Austin McKenzie.

“After 3.5 years of hard work by so many dedicated souls, I’m thrilled to share the first trailer for #WhenWeRise,” Dustin wrote on Facebook.

Zelda Williams and Zachary Williams strike a pose together on the red carpet while attending the grand opening of SAG-AFTRA Foundation’s Robin Williams Center For Actors, Broadcasters And Recording Artists on Wednesday evening (October 5) in New York City.

The brother-sister duo were joined at the event by Whoopi Goldberg, Bonnie Hunt, Hank Azaria, Marlo Thomas, Carol Kane, Billy Crystal and his wife Janice.

“There was a look he had that used to make me laugh, because I knew he was gone,” Crystal said during the panel (via Deadline). “He knew what he was doing. He was an artist,” Whoopi added. “But he could exhaust you. We would both say ‘Just stop. Oh my God, stop!’”

The opening promoted a $16 million capital campaign that will include $6 million for the center and $10 million for the foundation’s endowment.
