Not one to rest on her laurels, Egot-winning comedian/actress/pundit Whoopi Goldberg is diversifying her resume once again. Now, she's a weed columnist, too. See video: Whoopi Goldberg Finally Weighs in on Sharon Osbourne's Anti-'View’ Views: ‘Who Cares?’ The Denver Post published the “View” co-host's first column for its new marijuana-focused website, Cannabist.com on Thursday, thereby introducing the world to Goldberg's vaporizer pen, Sippy. The 58-year-old wrote an ode to Sippy, which she was gifted by her daughter last year. Goldberg suffers from glaucoma, and wrote that after years of chewing Advil like candy, the electronic marijuana »

If you loved the celebrity interviews on "Oprah," rejoice -- "Oprah's Master Class” returns to Own on Sun. May 11 at 10:00 p.m. with a raft of celebrities who want to talk about themselves.

Whoopi Goldberg is in love, guys. But not with a human – with her vaporizer pen.
The Egot winner is now writing for The Cannabist (a publication all about, well, guess). In her first piece, she explains how her trusty vaporizer pen has helped her deal with the pain of glaucoma. Goldberg’s daughter gave her the instrument – and that’s when her love affair with Sippy (yes, “her” name is Sippy) was born.
To get a feeling for how Goldberg really feels about her pen, here are all the quotes from her column that could easily be lines from a Nicholas Sparks novel — that is, »

Whoopi Goldberg wears so many hats it’s easy to forget that she can be a pretty fine actress when she gets the opportunity. Such is the case with “A Day Late and a Dollar Short,” a crazily soapy Lifetime movie so steeped in melodrama that the two responses are to either roll one’s eyes or to happily succumb — and keep a box of tissues handy. Cast to the hilt, this Lifetime movie is the network’s latest to feature a predominantly African-American ensemble, in practical terms wedding the network’s older-female niche to a demographic that’s often underserved on TV in regard to serious drama.
Based on the bestseller by Terry McMillan (“How Stella Got Her Groove Back”), the movie stars Goldberg as Viola Price, the ailing matriarch of a big, fractious, squabbling family. That includes her estranged husband (Ving Rhames) and four grown kids, played by Anika Noni Rose, »

All 11 Co-Hosts Returning For Barbara Walter's Last Week
Walters, who co-created The View, is the only original member of the panel still on the show. Past hosts include originals Debbie Matenopoulos (1997-1998), Meredith Viera (1997-2006), Star Jones (1997-2006), and Joy Behar (1997-2013). Lisa Ling hosted from 1999-2002, Elizabeth Hasselbeck from 2003-2013 and Rosie O’Donnell from 2006-2007.
Walters announced her plans to retire from The View in May of last year. In her announcement, Walter reassured fans of the show that she’d be staying on as a co-producer.
Walters, who’s been in TV journalism since the 1960s, is confident that now is the time to walk away from her day job. »
I didn't expect to be exhilarated by the news that every former and current cohost of "The View" will come back to the show to join Barbara Walters on her last episode of the series. I really didn't. But for some reason I feel like this is the new "The Last Waltz," an historic summit of superstars that we'll never get again. I can't wait. I'm not even a big "View" watcher and I can't wait. To celebrate, here are the greatest moments from every former and current "View" co-host. Meredith Vieira hits on an unsuspecting "Millionaire" contestant. Meredith rules. Full stop. She's the reason "The View" got any traction when it began, and she was a fantastic host of "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?" Here, she completely stuns a contestant by hitting him and referring to herself as "a horny old woman." I'm rooting for her to take »

When all 11 past and present co-hosts of The View unite on May 15 to bid farewell to the talk show’s creator Barbara Walters, we expect each lady to be on her best behavior. But that doesn’t mean there won’t be plenty of bad feelings and some tongue-biting when these gals come face-to-face.
While The View was created as a platform for women with varying opinions to talk openly and frankly about the day’s topics, it turned into a powder keg for clashing personalities. We don’t envy the person tasked with creating the seating chart that day. »

Daytime talker The View will reunite all 11 of its co-hosts on Thursday, May 15 which is Barbara Walters‘ second-to-last day on the program. Walters, the show’s creator and Ep, is ending her on-air run on the show May 16. (Babs will continue to be Ep of The View along with executive producer Bill Geddie, her producing partner of more than 25 years.) Pulling this off is no small feat, given the less-than-happy circumstances under which some of the co-hosts have left over the years. In addition to journalist Meredith Vieira, the list of returning co-hosts who will appear that Thursday includes lawyer Star Jones, comedian Joy Behar, television personality Debbie Matenopoulos, journalist Lisa Ling, comedian Rosie O’Donnell, and Fox News Channel host Elisabeth Hasselbeck — joining current co-hosts Sherri Shepherd, Jenny McCarthy, Whoopi Goldberg and Walters.

Jenny McCarthy and Donnie Wahlberg are engaged. The Playboy model got teary-eyed after breaking the news on The View Wednesday. And yes, her fiancé was there, too. "He was over there drying his tears," Whoopi Goldberg said of Wahlberg, 44. "I just got engaged!" McCarthy announced. "It's a yellow sapphire," she said of her engagement ring. McCarthy said her 11-year-old son Evan Asher helped with the surprise proposal. "This weekend I was sitting with Donnie and he went into the other room and out came Evan with a card that said 'Will.' And he ran away and came back with a card that said 'You,' and I knew what was happening and I just started crying. And »

Current panelists Whoopi Goldberg, Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy will also

The live stunt should be a boon to “View” ratings, given the history of squabbles and worse among various co-hosts of the ABC daytime mainstay. The list even includes Rosie O’Donnell, who left the show after less than two volatile years in 2007 under not-great terms with Walters and other co-hosts.
Walters will formally sign off from the show and retire from TV journalism on May 16, though she will remain an exec producer of “The View.” ABC will salute her more than half-century in TV with a two-hour primetime special that night.
The lineup of “View” co-hosts will feature:

Winners of the seven festival categories will receive $150,000 and prizes, and eight of the winners will also get to take home an original artwork. Winner of the second annual Nora Ephron Prize, which recognizes a female writer or director, will receive $25,000.
Seven Juries Will Award Prizes At 2014 Tribeca Film Fest
So while the news that neither "Birdman" nor "Inherent Vice" (our no. 10 and no. 1 most anticipated films of the year, respectively) will be showing in Cannes may have us casting our thoughts forward to the fall festival season, there are still quite a few key events on the cinephile calendar between now and then. Indeed, the Tribeca Film Festival starts this week, and while the line-up overall feels more muted in profile than some years, there's still plenty that has piqued our curiosity in its slate. The 13th iteration of the New York-based festival opens on Wednesday night and will run until Sunday 27th with 33 jurors presiding over the competitive sections, including Jeff Goldblum, Whoopi Goldberg, Lake Bell, Toni Collette, Nate Parker, Gary Ross, Catherine Hardwicke, Adepero Oduye, Heather Graham, Michael Stuhlbarg, Alfonso Arau, Christine Lahti, Anton Yelchin and Natasha Lyonne. We've seen a fair number of the selection already »
