Whoopi Goldberg responded forcefully to allegations levied by “Real Housewives of DC” star (and alleged White House party crasher) Michaele Salahi.
Whoopi showed another camera angle that showed that she did not hit Salahi, as she reportedly claimed, but rather nudged her on the side to remind her to get back on topic.
“Afterwards, Michaele was very upset about what was said about her on the air,” Whoopi explained, “and then I was told that she thought I hit her. So I went up to her and I told her that she knew I didn’t hit her.”
Whoopi went on to defend her language, which is reported to include several F-bombs.
“And yeah, you know how I said it — choice words,” she said. “And I make no apology for my choice words. But then her husband got in my face, had his BlackBerry out and started taking pictures of me. And needless to say I really went off then. And there is even more choice words. They were so choice you could’ve cut ’em with a knife and eaten ’em.”
Salahi’s lawyer, Lisa Bloom, said Salahi found the appearance “degrading and demeaning.”
