Whoopi Goldberg has gone from the little screen to the big screen and back again. A comedian most people like.

Elisabeth Hasselbeck of The View had some harsh words for Chris Brown's vulgar Twitter rant against Jenny Johnson, likening his comments to "verbal rape."

"I think it's disgusting, first of all," she said. "But also, it seems like verbal rape to me."

"And I think at some point there's gotta be a point where Twitter should ban anyone who writes anything forever on there and you should identify yourself."

Co-hosts Sherri Shepherd and Whoopi Goldberg, while acknowledging that Brown's comments were extreme, emphasized that Jenny Johnson was also to blame.

Rielle Hunter was eviscerated on The View yesterday as the gabfest panel, in particular Whoopi Goldberg, went nuclear on John Edwards' mistress.

"In your book, you trash a dead lady," Goldberg stated, referring to Rielle Hunter's new tell-all book, in which she bashes Elizabeth Edwards often.

"That was kind of crappy."

Regarding What Really Happened: John Edwards, Our Daughter and Me, the author responded, "I wrote to tell the truth. I was truthful about their dynamic."

In the interview, Hunter acknowledged that despite recent photos of the happy family on a North Carolina beach, she broke up with John Edwards.

Asked if the split was caused by her memoir, Rielle dodged. "I don't want to hide any more," she said. "It's hard under media scrutiny, it takes a toll."

The mother of Edwards' love child spent a good part of the interview defending herself. "I'm not a mistress, I'm a mom," Rielle Hunter insisted.

Elisabeth Hasselbeck wasn't buying it: "Truth be told, you were a mistress."

Whoopi Goldberg farted on The View hardcore today.

Seriously, there's breaking wind and there is cutting ass.

This is the latter. It was a loud one, and there's no hiding it. To her credit, Whoopi didn't even try after the fart interrupted her interview with Homeland star Claire Danes, saying, "Excuse me, I think I just blew a little frog outta there!"

Seriously:

A rep for ABC said that Whoopi Goldberg farting on The View (not for the first time, either) "was in good fun ... secretly we hoped it would get posted on YouToot."

Gotta give them credit for honestly. And that play on words.

Every now and then, The View panelists actually engage in an interesting discussion.

Such was the case when the topic of Tracy Morgan, his recent anti-gay rant on stage and subsequent apology came up this week on the talk show.

Whoopi Goldberg didn't defend Morgan's specific outburst, but did speak from experience as a comedian when she said this stuff just happens occasionally on stage: "Sometimes we step in it and it’s bad, and this is one of those times... when a comic has gone over the line and realized it. Not just because people told him, but because he realized it."

Sherri Shepherd, who recurs opposite Morgan on 30 Rock as his character's wife, said a working actor must also represent his show at all times.

And Elisabeth Hasselbeck actually chimed in with a good question: Do the standards for a comedian change in this Internet age, when he/she must be aware that his/her audience expands beyond those in the audience? Should it?

There's really no other way to say this: Whoopi Goldberg let one rip on The View this week.

Asked by guest Dr. Oz if there was a history of farting on the show, the host wasn't shy about her take on this habit: "There is more room out than in!" Whoopi exclaimed, as Barbara Walters looked on, mortified.

Goldberg then appeared to demonstrate her penchant for passing gas right there on the spot; once again, to the horror of Walters...

We knew he loved fame, money, himself, and bloviating about everything under the sun. But who knew Donald Trump was a complete buffoon?

Swaggering onto The View today to promote The Celebrity Apprentice, Trump, who's pondering a White House run, also brought up a political issue.

One that landed him in hot water with Whoopi Goldberg.

Of President Obama, who he thinks he can beat, Trump asks: “Why doesn’t he show his birth certificate? I want him to show his birth certificate!”

“There’s something on that birth certificate that he doesn’t like,” said Trump, defying all intelligence (here's Obama's birth certificate, idiot).

He pointed to Elisabeth Hasselbeck and said, “Look, she’s smiling!” She was, perhaps because she anticipated Whoopi's reply, which was:

“Donald, I think that’s the biggest pile of dog mess I’ve heard in ages! It’s not because he’s black, is it?” Trump denied that it was, but ...

“Because I’ve never heard a white president being asked to show his birth certificate. That’s B.S.” said Goldberg vehemently, and truthfully.

Trump admitted that Obama "probably" is a citizen but insists he should prove it because "no one" remembers him from when he was a kid. Really.

What do you think? Is Obama a natural-born U.S. citizen?

Every now and then, The View stops being about headline-grabbing antics and actually gets real. Today was one of those occasions.

With everyone from Dr. Drew to Joan Rivers chiming in on Charlie Sheen's latest scandal/attempt to get clean, Whoopi Goldberg took a few minutes to relate to this troubled actor. She, too, was a drug addict.

"I was a functioning drug addict, I showed up for work because I knew a lot of people would be out of work and I wouldn’t get a check that I needed to buy my drugs," Whoopi said.

How low did Goldberg sink?

“I ended up sitting on a bed for three or four days scared there was something under the bed. I wet the bed, I pooped the bed...  I was so scared. I hit bottom. I did that a long time ago."

Describing herself now as "straight as an arrow," Whoopi said she believes Sheen can clean up his life. But “this isn’t the producers’ decision [to make]." The actor must "make the decision that he’s ready and willing to stop doing what he’s doing... he’s not there yet.”

That much is clear, based on his self-analysis. Let's hope he gets there.

Bill O'Reilly appeared on The View today. But he wasn't exactly treated like a welcome guest.

As soon as the topic turned to the proposed mosque around the site of 9/11, Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar got into it with the Fox News anchor. He argued that 70% of the country was against the Muslim center and that it was "inappropriate," albeit clearly constitutional, to erect.

They argued that people should be smart/tolerant enough to differentiate between a religion and the extremists within that religion. At least that's what we think both sides said, as voices were raised and opinions flew until Goldberg and Behar actually stormed off the set...

Said Barbara Walters of the incident: "We should be able to have discussions without washing our hands and screaming and walking off stage. I love my colleagues, but that should not have happened."

Following an appearance on The View this week, Whoopi Goldberg approached reality TV star Michaele Salahi backstage and cursed her off.

This fact is not in dispute. Both sides acknowledge the confrontation. But there are a couple differences:

  1. Salahi's lawyer says her client was completely mistreated on the talk show, outlining her complaints and explaining what happened in a statement you can read HERE.
  2. Goldberg, conversely, pretty much says Salahi deserved everything that came to her.

On yesterday's episode, Whoopi started the show by discussing the events and not backing down from her role in them:

"I went up to her and told her that she knew I didn't hit her, and yeah, you know, how I said it: choice words. I make no apology for my choice words... I mean they were so choice you could've cut 'em with a knife and eaten them."

Whoopi Photo

Goldberg says she was set off when Salahi's husband pulled out his Blackberry and stared snapping photos of his wife's heated discussion with the comedian.

Michaele, meanwhile, went on The Today Show yesterday and described how Whoopi "berated" her. Again, this isn't something Goldberg denies. She almost seems to take pride in it.

Whoopi Goldberg did not hit Michaele Salahi when that attention-starved waste of space appeared on The View yesterday. Let's get that fact straight.

Earlier reports claimed that this Real Housewives of Washington D.C. cast member had accused the host of making such a violent gesture, but attorney Lisa Bloom tells EW.com her client never made the allegation.

However, Bloom is outraged over the disrespectful way in which she says Salahi was treated during her appearance on the talk show, which included numerous references to her "crashing" the White House and a bizarre cameo by Goldberg, who grabbed Michaele's arm (saying "Excuse me, would you get back to the White House, please?") and then rushed off stage.

You can watch the six-minute segment and then take in what Bloom said about it in a statement below:

"It’s not appropriate for another host to come up from behind her and ask her, the guest, to change the subject. If Whoopi didn’t like the way the interview was going, she should have told Sherri or Joy or one of the producers," Bloom said, adding that Goldberg cursed her client out in the dressing room backstage.

Bloom then defended Salahi's White House incident in general:

"She was never charged with a crime. The U.S. attorney in Washington D.C. released a statement saying they’ve never committed a crime and have never been charged. But I guess the people at The View feel otherwise. Without reviewing any of the evidence, they’ve decided that they are going to smear her. It’s unprofessional."

Bloom and Salahi can cry themselves a river over this treatment, but The Real Housewives of Washington D.C. premieres tonight on Bravo - and they should send Goldberg a bouquet of flowers after the inevitably strong ratings come in.
