Following an appearance on "The View" Wednesday to promote "The Real Housewives of D.C.," White House party crasher Michaele Salahi left feeling attacked by Whoopi Goldberg.
During Salahi's appearance, the women (minus Goldberg) were discussing the "The Housewives" when Whoopi came on the set and tapped Salahi, urging her to talk more about the night she and her husband crashed the White House State Dinner for India's Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
"Lopez Tonight" host George Lopez and his wife, Ann, attended the State Dinner in Washington D.C. Wednesday night.
Honoring visiting Mexican President Felipe Calderon, celebrities in attendance included "The View's" Whoopi Goldberg, Eva Longoria Parker, Gayle King, and a musical performance by Beyoncé.
"The View" host Barbara Walters announced on her show Monday that she was going to take some time off to have heart surgery.
The 80-year-old veteran journalist will undergo a heart valve replacement and only told her co-hosts shortly before the show aired. "I thought it best not to talk about it too far in advance," Walters said.
Photographer and filmmaker Timothy Greenfield-Sanders talked to Extratv.com about "The Black List: Vol. 3" and the HBO documentary's move to the classroom.
"The Black List: Vols. 1 and 2" feature a diverse group of people from the worlds of art, sports, politics, business and government. Over 50 people have been profiled, including Toni Morrison, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Sean "Diddy" Combs, Chris Rock, Tyler Perry and Maya Rudolph.
In "The Black List: Vol. 3," Greenfield-Sanders and acclaimed journalist Elvis Mitchell teamed up again to learn about others, including "Precious" director Lee Daniels, musician John Legend and Whoopi Goldberg.
Greenfield-Sanders says he wanted Goldberg on-board from the beginning. "Whoopi was someone who was on our list from day one. You can't make a list with great people without her," he confessed.
While Greenfield-Sanders says he would love to see "The Black List" films in theaters, he thinks schools would be a better fit.
He explained, "The real place is educational world. That's more realistic. This is something that can be used in an academic situation to teach."
"The Black List's" creative team is currently working with Scholastic and the United Negro College Fund to create a curriculum and lesson plans for grades K-12.
Greenfield-Sanders calls the three films in two years a "Herculean effort," and has some faces in mind for a future installment.
"One person that's missing is Sidney Poitier," he says. "He's such a groundbreaking figure, a historic figure."
No surprise here, Greenfield-Sanders would like to get President Obama and Michelle Obama too. "There are so many great people" he added.
"The Black List: Vol 3" airs this month on HBO.
"The Tyra Banks Show" and "Rachael Ray" nabbed awards in the talk show categories at the Daytime Emmy Awards on Sunday.
The bubbly chef-turned-host won the "Entertainment" talk show prize for "Rachael Ray," ending Ellen DeGeneres' three-year reign in the category, while Tyra Banks won an Emmy for her show in the "Informative" category.
Ray -- along with Ellen, Regis Philbin and Kelly Ripa -- was up for an Emmy for Best Talk Show Host, but Joy Behar, Whoopi Goldberg, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Sherri Shepherd and Barbara Walters beat the others and took home statuettes for their work on "The View." Funny gal Ellen has won the hostess Emmy for the past four years.
Tell "Extra" -- Did the Emmys pick the right winners?
The hostesses on "The View" have overheated during political debates this year -- and Election Day proved to be no exception!
Left-leaning hostesses Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar got into it again with conservative colleague Elisabeth Hasselbeck over Barack Obama's controversial former pastor, Jeremiah Wright. At one point, Goldberg snapped, "I'm trying to educate you!" Hasselbeck shot back, "I don't need an education" -- to which Whoopi exploded, "Well, you do!"
The former "Survivor" took on the rest of her more liberal fellow hostesses regarding the integrity of both John McCain and Barack Obama -- leading up Joy Behar's dramatic walk off the stage!
When it seemed the dust had settled, longtime Republican Dennis Hopper came on the show and revealed that he cast his vote for Barack because McCain chose Sarah Palin as his running mate, saying, "I voted for Obama. Palin finally sent me over to the other side."
Elisabeth Hasselbeck is the outspoken conservative among the hostesses of "The View" -- but are her views garnering death threats for the former "Survivor"?!
That's false! Page Six reported that Whoopi Goldberg said that her Republican colleague gets more death threats than anyone else on the show -- but a rep for ABC tells "Extra," "Whoopi was completely misquoted. She never said that."
"Extra" caught up with Whoopi Goldberg during her New York book signing today. Whoopi spilled on the backstage drama between her "View" co-hostesses, saying, "You can disagree with your friends, loved ones and not make it personal. In spite of what anybody reads or says, there are no personal digs taken at that table." Goldberg hopes people will "stop listening for trouble and hear what we are talking about ... Listen to us as we speak, not as other people interpret us."
"The View" co-hostess also offered her opinion on the presidential race. "I think it's going to be incredibly close ... The truth of the matter is, you don't know what anybody is going to do once they walk in that voting booth." She continued, "Most people recognize, I think, B.S. when they hear it. I think most people are smart enough to know they are going to have to study the issues."
Whoopi was signing copies of her new children's book, "Sugar Plum Ballerinas" -- in stores now.
