I just saw DeWayne White at the bottom of the screen. I KNOW HIM!!! He is a family friend, and he used to work at the WalMart in my town. I'm amazed how so many people I grew up with are now famous. First DeWayne, then DREW ROY who I went to high school with. Where is my fame and fortune??? LOL

IT was a funny joke...and Whoopi can handle it...and as someone else said...she has the forum on the View to talk about it if she wants to rip him one, but I doubt she will. She knows what she looks like, and she can take a joke.

this sports announcer didn't know what he's talking about. Whoopi may not have the outer beauty; but she is a very intelligent/well rounded human being and has more quality than beyonce has at this point in time.
