Whoopi

News

Here's the scoop...

At the moment whoopi is in New York. On January she will be on Broadway starring in a play called Ma Raineys Black Bottom

Whoopi is to star in an upcoming television sitcom for american channel NBC. There are no details about the storyline, characters, release dates ect but I hope it will air on Ch 4 over here in Blighty and N.Ireland.

Absolutely Fabulous stars Joanna Lumely and Jennifer Saunders have been named honorary New Yorkers

It coincided with NYC officials declaring 'Absolutely Fabulous' week in the city.

Whoopi Goldberg also presented the British stars with special human rights awards at a gay pride ceremony.

Lumley, accepting in the drunken voice of her alter ego Patsy, said: "I just want to say, like, I really just wanted to say, cheers and thanks a lot."

The comedy has been a hit in the US, especially among the gay community, since it was first screened in 1994.

Thrilled

New York State Senate Democratic leader Martin Connor said he was thrilled to have Lumley and Saunders in the city.

"Even more important than laughs, the show has depicted disenfranchised communities in positive and affirming ways and that is helpful in the struggle for civil rights."

Saunders was given an extra surprise when journalist and lesbian rights campaigner Ann Northrop admitted she fancied the comic.

Hollywood star Goldberg said she had no desire to sleep with the decadent duo, but joked: "I've been on both sides of the block. Actually I'm in the middle right now."

The actress said she "really digged" the show which was "unlike anything made in the US".
