Early this week, Monday I think, I switched on The View for a little while. I stopped watching the show quite a while ago. Barbara Walters was talking and Sherri Shepherd obnoxiously butted in. Barbara was obviously upset and slapped her down so she could finish what she was saying. Sherri shut up and looked like she was pouting and sneering for the rest of the show, even on the couch with some celeb. Every picture I've seen of her this week since then shows the same nasty attitude. Isn't she cutting her own throat? Is she on her way out, too, like Joy and Elisabeth? Sherri and Hasselbitch are why I stopped watching. How can air-head Sherri think that what she says matters or has any relevance to today's world? I know that everyone has the right to their own opinion, but vapid comments like she expresses do not deserve a public forum like The View.
OP, you need to stop watching that shit. It just agitates you.
Is this one of those shows watched by shut-ins and people with no job?
No, r2, it's watched by jackasses "sick" and "working" from home.
All of those abortions messed with her brain.
I swear I watched an episode one time where she said her son wouldn't be allowed to be gay until he was 18 and out of her house.
Is her son ever going to be out of her house? Doesn't he have a ton of developmental delays?
r2, or people who work odd hours or from home, or people who dvr it. Lots of people dvr Ellen because the show's positive vibe is the perfect way to unwind after work. I would if I had a dvr.
[quote]I would if I had a dvr.
Maybe you could put your tape recorder next to the TV.
Sherri spanks that child senseless too. She talk about it all the time.
Has she figured out that the earth isn't flat yet?
Each of the hags on that show have their own sort of repugnance, but Sherri is by far the least palatable.
She is grossly ignorant of most topics she comments on. Totally untouched by any concepts of science or fact and lives within her "born again christian black woman who formerly was a whore with multiple abortions" bubble. She has all the fervor of a zealot and no brain power.
She prefaces her ignoranty spouting with "as a christian" or "as a black woman" as though those two things confer rightness. She confuses that with her own brand of mean spiritied righteousness.
I loathe her.
Why was she hired to be on The View? What did they expect her to bring to the table? She has the intelligence of a box of hair, doesn't have an interesting personality, and isn't funny. Maybe she was selected to be the "annoying" woman at the table.

Hasselbitch was already there when they brought Sherri on, so there goes that idea.

She is a fat black christian woman. Stock character needed to contrast with mouthy New Yorker Joy, erratic show biz personality (now Whoopi then Rosie), pretty little conservative airhead (E leaving who's next?)and supposed culture doyenne (Queen Barbara).
The next cast will be different but no better.
I believe if "gay men who work from home" stopped watching- the ratings would plummet.
The only thing I know about this show is what I've read here on DL.
Barbara has developed an obsession with "I'm NOT Finished!!" She yells this all the time if Sherri or Elizabeth interupt her. It's become kind of a joke where the other ones roll their eyes at Barbara. Whoopi will interupt her and say we have to move on.
If no one interrupted Babs she'd talk the whole show.
That bitch didn't even know the earth was ROUND.
I'm all for different perspectives and ideas, but if you don't have the common sense God gave a dog, then no, you can't sit at the big girl table and have an adult conversation.
Sherri was hired simply because she is black. She was on a few comedy shows and the producers thought she would bring that " delightful negro" humor to the show.What they didn't know is that she's not bright and not as humorous as they thought.
[quote]Sherri spanks that child senseless too. She talk about it all the time.
Black people all seem to think beating their children is good parenting. So, how's that working out for them? Sherri is insanely retarded. Yes, I said retarded!
She's gotten incredibly hot that she's lost all of that weight. Plenty of people would hit that, just to see those breasts jiggling up and down. Talk about a piece of ass.
I stopped watching when she brought the idiots on but frankly, I can not STAND, Barbara.
For Sherri, "critical thinking" means the red muumuu or the blue one.
You would think they would be embarrassed to display the ignorance of this woman. They should be embarrassed to let people know they're paying big bucks to have her sitting there.
The View has a track record of hiring "off" black women, doesn't it? As much as Sherri is lacking in intellect, Star Jones, who's plenty smart, let her arrogance and entitlement shoot off the charts. Whoopi's OK for the most part, but she seems invested in being a character. Oh, yeah, the "rape, rape" comment. What's up with the producers who hire them? Do they think black women identify with them? Do they come off well to black viewers?
Today was her birthday and at the end they paraded out an entire table of cakes and brownies and treats, as all her favorites. The woman is a fucking Diabetic
First of all, Barbara is a living legend and a national treasure. Barbara may say "I'm not finished" but at least she's firm but polite. Whoppi, OTOH, cannot conceal her irritation at being interrupted. She's an ACTRESS and should try using some of those skills to hide that.
Whoopi and Hasselbeck talk the most on the show. They control the whole conversation and Whoopi thinks she knows everything.
Sherri is always smiling and seems very nice. I really don't understand the hate towards her. I could see hate towards Joy (even though I like her), Eliz, or Whoopi but not the others.
[quote]Sherri is always smiling and seems very nice. I really don't understand the hate towards her
Why would you, when you actually think Barbara Walters is a national treasure.
Yeah, can't stand Sherri either. I lose a few IQ points whenever she opens her mouth.

There's a lot you don't understand beginning with the difference between "hate" and "dislike." We dislike Sherri Shepherd. We loathe the ignorance displayed by the Hate Trolls like r27.
R27 is one of Roy Cohn's buttbabies.
The reason why Sherri seems a bit "off" to some people is because she's the result of a genetic experiment in which pig DNA was combined with human DNA to create a hybrid creature. Obviously, she belongs in a pile of slop, rolling in her own excrement but somehow she ended up as a host on the View.
I really don't see how I'm a Hate Troll but I shouldn't be surprised that the miserable people of DL hate someone who's polite, smiles, and seems to have an inner light.
You do not have to be fat or black, to be an obnoxious, fanatical Christian.
Barbara must be ripping her hair out. A trainwreck. Sherri and Jenny did an unfunny skit about Amish. Sherri looked like Mammy with false eyelashes. They are reading their cue cards so fast like its a race. The new set up, decor, music is horrendous. They should dump her fat ass along with Jenny and get some smart, funny women on.
She's an asshole
Dan Harris was guest host talking about his anxiety attack on air and that his cure was meditating for 5 minutes a day. This moronic woman proceded to close her eyes while everyone was talking trying to practice meditation. She, who thinks the earth is flat, doesn't know that you are supposed to be in a quiet place while meditating? Whoopi once again defended the anti semite Mel Gibson who, she said should be forgiven because she knows the real Mel and of course everyone agreed with her. And Sherri said she wants to be a Beyonce back up dancer if she wasn't in show biz!!!!!
Sherri Shepherd is a complete mistake on this show. I find her views worse than vapid. She pulls the race card on way too many issues, grilling the Bachelor host today about 'when will there be a black bachelor?" She was floating out of her audience seat for gospel singing the other day. She just annoys the crap out of me. The View has become unwatchable, more than it ever was before. Don't get me started on Jenny Mc. WTF is she doing on that show?
Shrri thinks she's a tycoon now that she has two nickles to rub together.
Never liked her kind, never will.
When Jenny McCarthy announced her engagement Sheperd screamed and carried on like she had won a freezer on The Price is Right.
What do you mean R39, "her kind"?
I suspect that R39 meant the vapid, talentless, born-again bitches who proudly beat their children and aren't sure that the earth is round kind.
 and  deserve a special DL Daytime Emmy Award for their hilarious and true comments.
Sherry is incredible dumb and she seems racist.
She thinks Beyonce is a good role model for girls.
Jenny is also profoundly dumb.
I do like Whoopi a lot.
The View really is Harpies Bizarre.
Am I the only one on this earth to see the injustice that Sherri and her kind are inflicting on good kind honest people. She has single-handedly, because of her loud mouth, turned the view into bashing all white people, who are obviously racist. She is making people hate blacks because of her overt racism. I hate this woman and don't understand how she has been successful, no white woman would have her success if she was in any way like this pathetic woman. It goes to show how low the standards are for successful black women.
Sherri and Jenny FIRED!!!
"The View" is cleaning house. Network sources tell us the cast has been fired... except for Whoopi Goldberg.
Our sources say there was a meeting at ABC late Thursday afternoon and they announced Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy were out. We've also heard but not confirmed executive producer Bill Geddie may not be coming back.
Maybe not coincidentally ... Barbara Walters is scheduled to be on the show Friday (though it did tape on Wednesday).
"The View" has been in turmoil since Jenny was hired ... it messed up the chemistry on the show.
So far no word official word on who is replacing the panel, but we're told the list includes Ross Mathews and Jesse Palmer.
I think Sherri should have gone a long time ago, but a couple of weeks ago she stated that things really haven't any better for minorities in The States. After that I thought that she was waaaaay past her due date. What a mindless comment. This coming from a black woman who's gotten the opportunity to co-host a top rated network program, spewing opinions rooted in ignorance, disadvantage, and victomhood. Really Sherri, wake up and realize that things must have gotten better somewhere along the road for a person of your limited intellect to have gotten that far.
So who else is watching this trainwreck of a farewell show to Sherri Shepherd!?
Arsenio Hall is the desperate has-been guest as well as several gospel singers, including one guy who was SO flaming my tv almost exploded.
And coming up BEL BIV DEVOE!!!!
It is a good thing Bill Gedde is going as well; he never hired anyone strong enough - or smart enough to challenge him after Rosie's departure.
Hopefully she'll never be back on weekday TV. She needs to just go away.
I'm not going to waste the electricity watching…or give them the ratings.
I wonder if the scientist who created Sherri by combining human and pig DNA is going to do anything with it now that it's off The View.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
