Whoopi Goldberg shares love for Las Vegas

Whoopi Goldberg and I are on the same page: Enough with the crying babies in Vegas, already. Whoopi is a gambler, you see. "To be sitting at a table and hear some little kid crying is, like, wow. I'm trying to hit this -- and your kid is crying."...

McGrath: Gary Busey is 3-D

Clay fans can be as raw as him

In 1990, Andrew "Dice" Clay was considered so outrageous that when he hosted "Saturday Night Live," cast member Nora Dunn thought he was a misogynist and walked off the show. She was fired. Since then, many women have shed their thin skins, says...

'Killzone 3' a beautiful adventure

Once again, my review of the hot new shooter is going to sound strange to anyone who doesn't play video games, because "Killzone 3" is a gorgeous, yet savage game about shooting people in the face. "Killzone 3" is the story of humans battling a...
