Catch them both alongside an all-star cast in the action-packed must-see movie Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull now in theaters nationwide. And every now and then Whoopi likes to show viewers some of her favorite things, so today-from a surefire way to keep feet fresh to a tricked-out toilet seat, she unveiled even more of her must-have items, and here they are: 1.

Robert Graham shirts: ( Robert Graham was launched in July of 2001 in New York. The Robert Graham DNA Standard was created and contrast plackets, yokes and cuffs was just the start. RG was quickly placed in only the better luxury stores in the United States where Neiman Marcus, Saks 5th Avenue, Nordstrom, Bloomingdale's, Fred Segal, Union NY, KBond and the hippest stores bought in. The first collection was shipped to stores in December of 2001 for the Spring 2002 season. The product retailed very quickly. First year revenues were $1.65 million. In September of 2005 Robert Graham launched their Women's Collection. The reality was men's size small and medium was being bought by women who were wearing them, darting and tailoring them to fit their shape. The women's collection is based on the same standards and aesthetics as the men's collection. Color, detail and blending of contrast trims. It was an immediate success. 3.

The Gem Shopping Network: ( The Gem Shopping Network went on-air May 10, 1997. However, Graduate Gemologist, Frank Circelli was the host of the first and original colored gemstone show on TV almost twenty years ago. It was this experience that filled Mr. Circelli with ideas for a new exciting shopping channel based on the wonderful world of gemology. One thing he was certain of is that he wanted to have the network founded on three principles: Honesty, Integrity and Education. Gem Shopping Network now reaches more than 30 million households all across America and sets the standard for the highest quality, most affordable gemstones and fine jewelry from all over the world. Unlike other shopping networks, Gem Shopping Network offers mostly 14k-24k gold, higher graded accent diamonds, fine to finest quality colored stones and precision craftsmanship. They do not sell any man-made or synthetic gemstones. It is their belief that a customer's money is far better spent on the real thing. 8. The Washlet S300 by TOTO: ( Valued at $1299. The Washlet S300 reinvents the humble toilet seat, recreating it as a warm water personal cleansing system. When the cleansing cycle is activated, a streamlined wand extends from the beneath the seat to provide a soothing warm flow of aerated water for complete cleansing. Built from antibacterial plastic, the Washlet wand and seat are ultra-hygienic. Because the water is drawn directly from the home's fresh water supply, the Washlet delivers warm water that is always clean and pure. Plus, the Washlet wand self-cleans automatically before and after each use. Once the cleansing cycle is completed, the user may engage the drying cycle, which uses warm air to gently dry the area. The Washlet seat also features TOTO's SoftClose hinge to eliminate annoying "toilet seat slam." Marrying technology with nature, the Washlet uses a microcomputer to control its myriad features-both sensor operated and remote control. The Washlet's "user sensor" will not activate the cleansing functions until it reads a body sitting on the unit, which prevents the wand from dispersing water when the seat is touched or opened during cleaning. TOTO has taken the Washlet seat to the level of high-tech luxury with its wireless remote control keypad and easy-to-view LCD read-out, which can be hand-held or remain in its own convenient wall-hung holder. Best of all, everyone in today's audience received the entire batch of Whoopi's brand new must-haves!
