Whoopi Goldberg Reacts To Barbara Corcoran’s Apology For Body-Shaming Joke On ‘The View’

A TMZ paparazzi caught up with Goldberg in New York City, where they asked if she took “offense” to Corcoran saying — after a segment on jeans — that Whoopi should send her her old jeans when she’s done, and Corcoran would make two pairs out of them.

“Oh… No,” the longtime View host replied.

When asked about the  encounter, Corcoran had already taken to social media to apologize, saying she realizes the joke she made on the spot wasn’t funny.

“I made a joke at Whoopi’s expense, which I now realize wasn’t funny,” Corcoran tweeted on October 7. “For anyone who I may have offended unintentionally, I just wanted to say I really am very sorry.”

But Golberg doesn’t need an apology. When asked by TMZ’s reporter if she accepted Corcoran’s apology, she said it wasn’t necessary.

“She doesn’t have to — you know, this is the lady who threw away her birthday party to get into a coffin,” Goldberg said, referencing Corcoran’s 70th birthday event in 2019, where she began the evening in an actual coffin. “So Barbara’s always been funny and weird. And that’s who she is. And no, it takes a lot more to offend me.”

Plus, it probably helps that Whoopi and Barbara have a long history.

“I’ve known her too long. We’ve known each other 25 years,” Goldberg said.

Smith took the crown on Monday night at the River Spirit Casino Resort in Tulsa, Oklahoma. She was presented with the crown by Miss USA 2020 Asya Branch, and will be making her way straight to Israel to compete at the Miss Universe pageant on December 12.

The 23-year-old works full-time as a reporter and said being a journalist is “a role I take very seriously.” During the pageant’s question and answer round, she spoke about subjects including honesty and sustainability, revealing that her “most important core value” was honesty.

“We’ve got to look at it from a macro and also a micro level,” Smith said, encouraging businesses to be more environmentally conscious. “So at the macro level, companies need to switch to green energy — I think that’s something we can all agree on.”

She continued, “But then, at the micro level, we all know how to reduce, reuse, and recycle, and those are all things we can implement in our daily life.”

While winning Miss USA is usually a feat that follows years and years of dedication to pageants, Elle Smith actually competed in her very first pageant just six months ago.

She got her first taste of the Miss USA stage on Sunday night during the State Costume Contest. Smith dressed as a jockey to honor the Kentucky Derby, with the blue-and-white outfit also paying tribute to her alma mater, the University of Kentucky. Smith graduated from the university in May 2020 with a degree in broadcast journalism.

Now, she works as a full-time reporter at WHAS, an ABC affiliate in Louisville, Kentucky.

Congratulations, Elle!

Rihanna looked better than ever when she rocked a skintight orange dress while being named a ‘national hero’ in Barbados.

Rihanna, 33, was officially named a “national hero” in her native Barbados, and she looked fabulous in an orange dress as she accepted the award. Rihanna donned a tight slinky Bottega Veneta midi dress that hugged her frame perfectly. The one-shoulder dress featured a choker neckline with a long fringed tassel hanging from the back.

The sleeveless dress had an open back and RiRi accessorized with a pair of brown leather strappy sandals, diamond hoop earrings, and tight braids that were pulled up into a high bun.

She stole the show in this outfit which was for a very special occasion. Barbados was officially declared as its own republic, cutting ties with the Queen of England. The ceremony took place in the island’s capital, Bridgetown, and was hosted by Prince Charles, who inaugurated Dame Sandra Mason as the Caribbean island’s new president.

During the celebration, Mia Mottley, Prime Minister of Barbados, honored Rihanna, saying, “On behalf of a grateful nation, but an even prouder people, we, therefore, present to you, the designee, for the national hero of Barbados, ambassador Robyn Rihanna Fenty may you continue to shine like a diamond.” According to The Hollywood Reporter, with Rihanna’s new status, she can officially put the title, Right Honorable, in front of her name.

When Rihanna isn’t being honored by her homeland, she is usually hitting the streets showing off her impeccable style and that’s exactly what she did recently.

Rihanna made a statement with her outfit while out in New York City when she looked fabulous when in a skintight forest green leather tube top tucked into a pair of high-waisted straight-leg blue jeans with rips on the knees. She topped her look off with a massively oversized Prada Faux Fur Lined Coat that was draped off her shoulders, revealing the fur on the inside. She accessorized with a pair of strappy white sandals and natural beach waves.

Dutch police say America singer Ari Lennox was arrested for being drunk, belligerent in public

It seems American artists haven’t learn a thing since rapper A$AP Rocky was locked up for acting out in a foreign country. It took a special request from then-President Donald Trump to secure his release.

American singer Ari Lennox cried “racism” when she was locked up for showing out in Amsterdam over the weekend.

The Grammy-nominated singer, who is Black, claims she was “racially profiled” at the Amsterdam airport and tweeted “Amsterdam security hate black people.”

According to published reports, the 30-year-old R&B star was arrested at Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport for disorderly conduct.

Like most entitled American stars who get into trouble when traveling abroad, Lennox played the victim on Twitter.

“I’m being arrested in Amsterdam for reacting to a woman racially profiling me… Fuck Amsterdam security. They hate black people… I just want to go home. I’ll never leave my house again.”

However, Amsterdam police told a different story. Police said Lennox was impolite to a female security officer and she was cuffed when she refused to calm down.

“Our unit found a woman full of emotions, that wouldn’t calm down. That’s why she had to be taken into custody… she was probably under the influence of the alcohol, and this was later confirmed… Our concern is to get everything on paper and ask her why she made those threats.”

A KLM spokesperson added:

“There was an altercation … about seeing her identification. The lady did not show the correct document. When the employee confronted her, she drew the wrong conclusions. Meanwhile, her management has apologized to us and she will make a statement later today.”

Lennox, real name Courtney Shanade Salter, grew up in Washington, D.C. and was inspired by singers like Mariah Carey and Ella Fitzgerald.
