Whoopi Goldberg has a fear of flying: Goldberg was working at a cafe as a waitress in San Diego in 1978 when she saw a commercial airliner collide with a Cessna killing 144 people. Ever since then, she’s had a fear of flying and prefers to travel by bus instead.
She used to be a phone sex operator: Goldberg made the shocking confession about her past on The View in 2011, adding that the money was “great”. Before she was famous, she also worked as a bricklayer and was a makeup artist in a mortuary.
She has no eyebrows: Have you ever noticed that before? No eyebrows at all. Zip. Zilch. Apparently she shaves them off.
Ex-teen idol arrested for third time
After smelling alcohol coming from Cassidy’s vehicle, an officer gave him a field sobriety test that showed a blood alcohol content of 0.19 percent, the patrol said. That level is more than twice the 0.08 legal limit for driving in California. Cassidy was alone in the car, the patrol said. He was arrested in Schodack, N.Y. last August and in Florida in 2010 for DUI.
Cassidy became a worldwide teenage heartthrob in the 1970s with hits such as “Cherish” and “I Think I Love You” during the run of “The Partridge Family,” a television series about a family of pop singers. He has since appeared on Broadway, in U.S. stage shows and in films.

Action drama “Lone Survivor” climbed to top spot at the North American box office, earning $37.8 million in its first weekend in general release, industry figures showed Monday.
Three movies that won honors at Sunday’s Golden Globe awards were also in the top 10 — although the prizes for “American Hustle,” “The Wolf of Wall Street” and “Frozen” will likely only show in a box office boost starting this coming weekend.
“Lone Survivor,” starring Mark Wahlberg and portraying one of the deadliest incidents of the Afghan war, is based on a book by the only Navy SEAL commando to survive a raid targeting an extremist fighter.
