  1. This takes “ride or die” to a whole new level. Even after damning court documents all but confirmed the accusations that comedian Bill Cosby has a tendency to – “allegedly” – roofie women, Cosby’s longtime friend and EGOTer, Whoopi Goldberg, is standing by her man (With a firm grip on whatever drinks are nearby, we hope).   “Innocent until proven guilty,” Goldberg stressed during a rant on “The View” Wednesday morning.  As more and more celebrities withdraw their support for Cosby, Goldberg is showing no signs of slowing down.

  1. As it turns out, not everyone is okay with Whoopi openly supporting a man who, in 2005, admitted to giving a woman Quaaludes before sex. Go figure.  While ABC has blocked Whoopi from leaving the show in the near future, public backlash may force the network to reconsider.

  1. So, is Whoopi in the wrong for sticking up for a friend? Or is it time to abandon the Cosby’s sinking ship?
