WHAT'S THE BIG WHOOP?
Whoopi Goldberg will tackle the polarizing issue of gay marriage during an episode of her NBC sitcom, Whoopi. According to Reuters, the plot finds Goldberg's character, Mavis, hosting a wedding for her gay cousin at the same time her conservative brother is using the hotel for a Republican get-together. Says Goldberg: "It's presented in a way that was non-condescending and yet thought-provoking." Notice how she didn't say funny? (For rapper 50 Cent's take on same-gender nups, see below.)
