  • Whoopi Goldberg Through the Years

    In addition to her long resume, Goldberg is also a successful author, which includes a children's series called, "Sugar Plum Ballerinas." Her latest book, "Is It Just Me?," was released on Oct. 5, 2010. In an interview with ABC News' Cynthia McFadden, Goldberg said the book is her view on the lack of civility and fairness in the world today, everything from rude behavior to drinking and driving. "I do think there is more meanness and I don't know why," Goldberg said of today's culture. "I guess it's easier, and also we validate it."
