whoopi goldberg it wasnt rape rape

Whoopi Goldberg stepped in it Monday on The View, when she defended Roman Polanski, saying that "it wasn't 'rape' rape" when he plied 13-year-old Samantha Gailey (now Geimer) with drugs and alcohol during a photo shoot at the home of actor Jack Nicholson, and performed oral sex, intercourse and sodomy on her.

The 76-year-old director was apprehended in Zurich, Switzerland on Saturday, in response to a 31-year-old United States arrest warrant.

Polanski was arrested in Los Angeles in 1977, and charged with rape by use of drugs, perversion, sodomy, lewd and lascivious act upon a child under 14, and furnishing a controlled substance (methaqualone) to a minor.  He plead guilty to a lesser charge of unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor, and was sent to a medical prison facility for psychiatric evaluation.  After 42 days he was released, and fled to France prior to sentencing.

While in Europe, Polanski continued to direct films, careful not to travel to countries likely to extradite him.  He was arrested on Friday at the Zurich Airport upon arrival to Switzerland to pick up a lifetime achievement "Golden Icon Award" from the Zurich Film Festival.

On Monday, Whoopi defended Polanski, saying "I know it wasn't 'rape' rape. I think it was something else, but I don't believe it was 'rape' rape."

Right Whoopi, it was CHILD rape.

dennis hopper hospitalized

Actor Dennis Hopper, 73, was rushed to a Manhattan hospital by ambulance earlier today for what has been described as flu-like symptoms.  According to his publicist Sheila Feren, the actor is being treated at an undisclosed medical facility after complaining of a stomach ailment.

Known best for as the director and star of the 1969 film Easy Rider, Hopper was forced to cancel a full schedule of interviews that were slated for Wednesday, including The Associated Press, Today Show and Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.

Hopper has been in New York City making the rounds to publicize the second season of the Starz network television drama Crash where he plays the role of erratic record producer Ben Cendars.  The show is modeled after the Academy Award winning 2004 film by the same name.

lisa marie presley lawsuit

If you work for a celebrity, your chances of getting dragged into court are pretty good if you break your contract.  That is exactly what Lisa Marie Presley has in store for her former nanny Christine White.

After Christine was dismissed from her baby tending duties,  she promptly filed a lawsuit alleging that she was forced to work 7-days a week without being paid overtime and didn't get the 10-minute rest breaks that she was entitled to while caring for Presley's twin babies who were born in October 2008.

Lisa Marie has filed a counter suit alleging that White posted photos of the twins on her personal Facebook page.  Presley claims that a total of 164 photos were taken of the babies.  In addition, the nanny reportedly shot video of the children and that footage contained views of Presley's private residence.

We would advise Ms. White that these nanny-gate cases tend to be won by the celebrities.  We're just saying....

justin timberlake jessica biel break up photo

Rumors have been flying that Justin Timberlake, 28, has split with Jessica Biel after a nearly three-year relationship and has set his sights on Rihanna.  Others are saying....not so fast.  The couple, who are reportedly going through a "rough patch", were photographed together in Northern California on Monday night in what may well be an attempt to mend fences and get the relationship jump started once again.

This summer Timberlake was busy in Europe promoting his new Givenchy fragrance and clothing line William Rast. Biel, 27, spent that same time frame in L.A. starring in Guys and Dolls.

The couple have been doing their own thing lately, with Biel alone at a wrap party for her new film Valentine's Day on September 22.  Just three days later Justin partied in West Hollywood with Trace Ayala at Crown Bar.

As for the Rihanna rumors...the two have been working together in the studio on a collaboration for her new album.  The work is not yet completed but the relationship has been described by those 'in the know' as purely professional.

kardashian odom nups fake or real deal

We've seen the wedding photos and heard all about the whirlwind one-month courtship of reality star Khloe Karshashian and NBA star Lamar Odom that quickly led them down the matrimonial aisle on Sunday.  Now we are being told it was merely a sham ceremony, not legally binding.  The fake nuptials were in fact scripted for a November 8th episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians on E!

Our friends at TMZ were able to leverage behind the scenes audio that caught walkie-talkie discussions as producers orchestrated script changes and debated when specific lines should be delivered, including what viewers are expected to believe is a truly poignant moment between the bride and her step-father Bruce Jenner.

Producers had a change of heart on just when Khloe should deliver the line telling Jenner that she considers him her real dad.   Famed legal eagle Robert Kardashian died in 2003.

OK! magazine purchased the wedding pics and the hot wedding issue is on newsstands now.   We've got a couple of sneak peek thumbnails below - click to expand.   Lots more wedding day photos available here.

It seems like only yesterday that another celebrity couple pulled a similar stunt, ie: Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt.  Say it isn't so Khloe!  Actually her big sister Kim Kardashian, one of our favorite celebrities, blogged about the uproar on her website today.  She said, "I really hate all the crazy things I have been hearing regarding their wedding not being real.  That is just crazy."

Listen to the audio below.  For the true romantics in the crowd....turn away now or risk suffering total disillusionment.

guy laliberte and claudia barilla wenn photo

Billionaire entrepreneur Guy Laliberte paid $35 million to travel aboard the  Soyuz TMA-16 to the International Space Station, leaving behind his visibly shaken partner Claudia Barilla and their two children.  The former model wiped away tears and managed, "I'm very happy for him.  It's amazing."

Space Adventures announced on June 4, 2009 that Guy Laliberte would become Canada's first space tourist aboard a Soyuz flight.  He is scheduled to arrive at the orbiting ISS on Friday and will return after 12 days of orbiting 220 miles above the earth.

His is a rags to riches story, with Laliberte starting out as a street performer at age 18, backpacking across Europe with an accordion, a mouth organ, spoons, a jaw harp and less than $1,000 in his pocket.  He eventually founded Cirque du Soleil--now in its 25th year.  He is also a high stakes poker player and is rumored to be a potential buyer of the Montreal Canadiens hockey franchise.

Laliberte is also a philanthropist who launched ONE DROP Foundation in 2007.  The international organization was funded with his $100 million contribution and will provide water in impoverished regions over a 25 year period.

Laliberte has three other children with former Brazilian partner Rizia Moreira and had a previous relationship with Naomi Campbell.

Former Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model and cover girl Kathy Ireland and her dancing partner Tony Dovolani were the third couple to get the boot on ABC reality show Dancing with the Stars.  Last weeks results show sent two celebrities packing in a  double elimination.

Ireland is just one of a long string of models who have been eliminated from DWTS during either the first or second week each season.  The 46-year-old said, "I wouldn't change a minute of it.  To be able to work with Tony the past six weeks has changed my life forever.  I can do so many things I never thought I could do.  I feel like the biggest winner because I got him as my teacher."

Also in the bottom three, but not necessarily the lowest vote getters were snowboarder Louis Vito and pro partner Chelsie Hightower, as well as sharp tongued Entourage actress Debi Mazar and her partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy.

Maks recently broke his engagement with another DWTS pro dancer Karina Smirnoff.  She and her partner Aaron Carter have held first place both weeks of competition.  The animal activist recently posed nude in a PETA ad - check it out here.

map of american samoa

A magnitude 8.3 earthquake struck the Samoan Islands Tuesday  at 6:48 a.m. (1:28 p.m. ET) according to the U.S. Geological Survey, prompting warnings for islands around the epicenter.  Water flowed inland about 100 yards before receding, leaving cars stuck in the mud.

Reports indicate that at least 111 people are dead and 15,000 people continue to be affected by the aftermath of the tsunami.  The Samoa Red Cross has opened five temporary shelters.

Meteorologist Mase Akapo said the deaths occurred in four different villages on the island of Tutuila and in neighboring Samoa.  The streets and fields were filled with ocean debris, mud, overturned cars and several boats as a massive cleanup effort continued into the night.  Several areas were expected to be without electricity for up to a month.

Tsunami waves swept into Pago Pago, generating warnings for American Samoa, Samoa, Cook Islands, Tonga and Fiji.  The airports in American Samoa and Samoa were closed in anticipation of a tsunami but according to Samoa airport employee Alefosao Mapulino, "we haven't seen any big waves at the moment."

A separate tsunami watch was issued for Hawaii and Papua New Guinea and later canceled.  Officials initially believed that a decreased wave could reach Hawaii at 1:18 p.m. (7:18 p.m. ET).  The quake, which reached a depth of 20 miles, is not expected to generate a tsunami that would reach the west coast of the U.S. or Canada.
