!! OMG, "I needed some help": Whoopi Goldberg's passion project !!
You'd think if Whoopi Goldberg wanted to make a movie, she could simply cut a check and be done. Not so says Whoopi Goldberg. The "View" host told IndieWire that she's financing her directorial debut on Kickstarter -- the online crowdfunding source -- because "I have limited funds. I have family. I take care of a lot of people on one check. So I needed some help." Goldberg hopes to raise $65,000 for her documentary on Moms Mabley, the door-opening female comedian who found national fame in the 1960s. Mabley died in 1975, leaving behind 20 comedy records and a legacy that paved the way for people like Goldberg. "Moms was the first and without her there probably would not have been a Totie, a Joan, a Kathy, a Wanda, or any of the others who may follow."
