Via HuffingtonPost:
Whoopi Goldberg responded forcefully to allegations levied by "Real Housewives of DC" star (and former alleged White House crasher) Michaele Salahi.

Whoopi showed another camera angle that showed that she did not hit Salahi, as she reportedly claimed, but rather nudged her on the side to remind her to get back on topic.

"Afterwards, Michaele was very upset about what was said about her on the air," Whoopi explained, "and then I was told that she thought I hit her. So I went up to her and I told her that she knew I didn't hit her."

Whoopi went on to defend her language, which is reported to include several F-bombs.

"And yeah, you know how I said it -- choice words," she said. "And I make no apology for my choice words. But then her husband got in my face, had his BlackBerry out and started taking pictures of me. And needless to say I really went off then. And there is even more choice words. They were so choice you could've cut 'em with a knife and eaten 'em."

Salahi's lawyer, Lisa Bloom, said Salahi found the appearance "degrading and demeaning."



  1. I watched the video-I didn't see what I would determine to be a hit by Whoopi.

    What is obvious is the fact that the Salahis are nothing but attention getting opportunist. This sounds more like a ploy to try and hem Whoopi up legally for some cash.

    Whoopi is not stupid by a long shot. I'm sure she wouldn't hit anyone with the cameras rolling unless it was totally necessary.

    And if she cussed Mr.& Mrs Salahi out-Oh Well! It just bes that way sometimes.

  2. I totally agree with msladydeaborah about the Salahis. They are low life parasites that live like tape worms. They attempt to suck money or glean fame out of any person who has a wonderful career. It's apparent that they don't have the intelligence to do anything but hitch their way through bowels of others who have fat wallets.

    I just hope Whoopi sues them well and $hits them out into the public eye!
