Why should she leave? It's a talk show, she talks. I don't agree with her a lot of the time but it would be a damn boring show if I sat there watching and agreeing with everything said and everyone on the show agreed with each other. Personally I agree with a poster here, or on another thread, that she sometimes just plays the devil's advocate to get a conversation/confrontation going. And even though I do not always agree, I do appreciate how she doesn't jump to snap decisions on a lot of things simply because of the way something is present in the media. Like she's said many times, the public, including herself, does not always have all the facts, just the sensationalism.

I don't watch The View- DL is my source for all Whoopi news- but what I am gathering by how Whoopi is constantly trying to stir something up is that the woman is desperate for attention. She must be one needy bitch.

Whoopi is always talking about not having enough money, yet her stupid opinions and big mouth gets her into trouble. After her "rape-rape" statement, she lost a "Toys 'R US" account and also got booted from "T-Mobile." Now she's really fallen on hard promotional times and is hawking "Poise". Let's see how long that lasts.

I have known David Claessen, one of Whoopi's ex-husbands for a LONG time. She is a major bitch and an egomaniac. When they divorced (because she is a dyke) she publicly slandered him, saying all he did was use her and her money. He is a major sweetheart and was crushed by the allegations. He has gone on to a successful career in cinematography, despite everything she did in Hollywood to stop him. And he's never uttered a peep to the media about her. She is a crazy bitch.

r29, Whoopi basically used HIM to get publicity, citing their nuptials for press.. He did not know she was a dyke. He doesn't say much, just that it turned out to be a very unpleasant experience, She actually paid him to go away once the divorce was final, then went on to try and wreck his career. They slept together only a few times in their brief time (2-3?) years together. He's never said who the women were in her life, at least not to me. No pre-nup, and he asked for nothing. Like I said, she gave him a settlement to go away. He did not need the money. She is apparently a master at manipulating PR around her image, but is a total bitch.
Given what I know, there must be some EPIC battles that go with Walters and Lizbitch.

Kudos on being a revolting human being, r70.
Whoopi's biggest problem is she clearly thinks 70% of what goes on on The View is beneath her. How many seasons did she cut up rough every time they discussed reality television?
Behar's just been on the show too long, and also clearly prefers her late night talk show. Also, she's about a year-and-a-half away from technically be in the same "age cohort" as Barbara.
Hasselback is noxious, but serves her purpose. And she's infinitely preferable to all the other professional lady conservatives (if only because she is more stupid than evil, and is often pretty tractable.)
I bet Barbara and Geddes are kicking themselves for choosing Shepherd when they probably could have had Wendy Williams.

I watch "The View" every day, or at least the Hot Topics segment and I have since before Whoopi was on. I have never seen her make excuses for any celebrity. She does however, suggest maybe the public does not know all the facts, only what the media is putting out there. She has never condoned any bad behavior, not Vick, not Gibson, not Tiger, not Weiner... she just says there is always more to what's going on than we know. Plus a lot of the time I think she is playing devil's advocate. If all 5 of the women up there agreed on everything topic it would be a very boring show.

I think It could be a toss up between Whoopi and Joy. I'd think cancer.But then Whoopi I could also see living to to be over hundred , still performing in a nursing home as Fontaine at 103 until she feel and broke her hip, towards the end she was Fontaine (and kind of Bea lillie mad-Fontaine liked to expose his non existent junk to the young nurses)
I also see Walters to live to a rip old age but "bedridden" rewatching her old interviews save for the occasional "exclusive" such as when a British heir to o the throne comes out
Elisabeth will be the obvious "Survivor" but I think she will at some point undergo a life crisis dealing with a family member which causes a political crisis of faith and she'll end up the grand old broad of the conservative Democrats

Anywone, especially a female, who makes light of Roman Polanski's rape of a child, should be slapped. When she made that RAPE-RAPE comment, I immediately disliked her as a person. I don't hate her because hate is such a strong word. I just can't believe an adult woman would try to side with Polanski, who is a complete monster of a human being.
Not only did she defend pedophile Polanski, but she defended dog abuser Michael Vick, homophope Tracy Morgan, anti-semite Mel Gibson, and also Michael Jackson. What is wrong with her?

[quote]“The View” recently brought aboard the second least-beloved (tied) daytime personality — but the show also has the third most-liked . . . . After DeGeneres and Symon, Whoopi Goldberg has the highest Q Score with 24. She also scores an 86 score in awareness, second only to Oprah Winfrey, who has a 93. . . . .

Well if the rumors are true the only View co-host coming back for sure next year is Nicole Wallace. It seems Rosie Perez is a goner for sure none of the producers are happy with her performance. Wallace has tested well with fans but she's not ready to be the 'senior host' on the panel so the struggle the producers are facing is sticking with Rosie O'Donnell or Whoopi but not both. They are going to cut one of them out because they're not playing well together. Rosie O. only signed a one year deal and it's believed she's frustrated and won't renew her contract if Whoopi returns. Whoopi has three years left on her contract but network has a clause (as they do with all on air talent) to release her from the contract if they so choose. Whoopi has been out for over a week with a bad back and some producers have noticed the positive response from a large chunk of fans having Rosie O. as the moderator.

R232 Your opinion doesn't count, especially since you haven't seen the show. And Nichole Wallace is far more than a standard Republican. Her political orientation is actually not relevant .Wallace is actually one of the best things about this show.
And no, I'm not a Republican.

I like Whoopi but I agree with what people are saying the view has been so much better without her these last few weeks.

I want Whoopi to stay and do not WANT a 'lighter mood'. There's more than enough superficial, middle-of-the-road mush pablum thinking for the masses during daytime TV. I don't want to hear a bunch of women playing into the idea they're only capable of banality and discussions about pantyhose. Housefraus and old trolls have plenty of other channels to turn to in order to hear their celebrity gossip, silly banter, and melodrama. The GOOD thing about Whoopi is she DOES add weight or gravitus to that ring of airheads and pearl clutchers she's currently surrounded by. I do wish she'd get her damned spine back, but it appears to be literally causing her problems now (hey, new chairs maybe? or are the producers trustafarian idiots too? "What will America think OF THE CHAIRS?!").
Rosie, otoh, plays the SJW with a sense of humour but the fact is with TWO female comedians up there, they should be able to take the sting out of heavier topics AND work off each others comedy style. Instead, they're being pitted against each other as intellectual heavyweights, and NONE of them are that. There's maybe two people on the entirety of the communications spectrum who can claim that anyway. But it's no reason to focus on hair products and spanks.
I think the person who MOST needs to go is Perez. She's just lost and only encourages friction, imo, between people with more intelligence and talent than she can muster on her best day.

The only time the show ever interests me is when there is some kind of big controversy/fights, especially political. When I hear about it I watch the show online. I'm not interested in celebrities unless it's like fighting about Cosby raping all those women. I'm not interested in some fuck pluging his or her latest film, book, TV or B'way show. I'm not interested in DWTS or AI or any of that shit.
I'd be happiest if the show was a debate format between Rosie O and whoever.

R240, I agree with much of what you said. It's just a shame that two of the most well known standup comed ians aren't using their comedy inside the socio-political topics like Carlin or, gulp, Mahr. Mahr is seen as funny AND intelligent whereas the Views producers seem to have fostered an either/or vibe with the women. When Joy was on the show, she added wit, sometimes stinging, to the crew. The momentum they initially picked up then was undermined by that frigid Elizabeth cunt. If they had booted her much, much sooner and brought Rosie back right away or allowed Whoopi to be more humorous, no one would've noticed Barbara leaving. Hmm, maybe that was behind it LOL

Rogen wasn't on the show but he made a statement linking American Sniper with the Nazis. Google it. I don't know his exact words but he just needs to shut his hypocritical piehole. Moore took the opportunity to get press for himself by shitting on the movie as well. Of course, Rogen had no problem creaming over the Mossad in his movie Knocked Up. Which he co-wrote. I bet he's never even been to Is-h-rael.

The show has been great this week. Frankly there seems to be a better flow and less tension. I also notice folks helping Rosie Perez. I am a fan again.
For me the chemistry was off because of Rosie. It was not anything she was doing. It was just the way it felt to me.

I've mentioned this before. Goldberg is one of the most well liked people on daytime television. In 2014 she had the 3rd highest Q score in daytime television. Ellen Degeneres had the highest and The Chew's Michael Symon had the 2nd highest. (Both scored 30 in likeability). Goldberg scored a 23 in likeablility. She ranks 2nd only to Oprah Winfrey in awareness.

Are these people watching with the sound and picture off, r264? She is not likable by a long shot. She is a bloviating asshole who turns every discussion into some half-assed lecture about the nature of "the business". Taraji P. Henson was on the show and WG was so unbelievably condescending and phony towards her when it was obvious that WG is pea green with envy over that juicy role that TPH KILLS on Empire.. And yet here was WG going on and on about how TPH has been around FOREVER but is just now getting the recognition she deserves. And how touched that makes her, WG, feel. Bitch! The woman was nominated for an Oscar! And then today I read that WG is trying to get on Empire. Don't do it Lee Daniels! You don't need that mess on your show! Fuck her and her not so subtle digs at my girl. A woman who acts rings around that Jabba the Mutt looking homeless bag lady. And fuck her clown shoes, too!

Through the decades, I've gone from being a fan to meh to active dislike.
The "meh" phase was from a time where I think she might have been making herself edgy. That I can respect.
The "active dislike" phase came from her time on "The View." I kind of think that if Whoopi was interviewing Charles Manson, she'd be deferential and let him know that she kind of understands why he did the things that he did, and she'd gladly endorse whatever show-biz project he was there to endorse.

Taraji Henson has started landing TV roles in the 1990's. She had her first leading film role in 2001. Benjamin Buttons was in 2008. So, yes she really has been around forever and unlike it does for some; her Academy Award nomination failed to launch her into the stratosphere. What Goldberg said was absolutely correct. Those weren't digs; those were the facts.
[quote]She is a bloviating asshole who turns every discussion into some half-assed lecture about the nature of "the business".
Goldberg is a 30+ year veteran of the "business". She is an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony winner. She probably knows the nature of the business pretty well.

Keep in mind that she only needs to be likeable for the show's target audience, which would be women.

Whoopi has changed. She's generally not funny and she's hard to watch. Worst of all, she's lost any credibility she had by consistently and irrationally defending every showbiz low-life from Michael Jackson to Mel Gibson. When she started out in her career, she seemed to speak for the poor and those without a voice. Now, she's become just another Hollywood PR hack defending entitled celebrities.
As far as The View, I think Joy said it best, "Who cares? What difference does it make?"

Today they were discussing the Kylie Jenner Challenge. Kylie issued a half-assed statement saying she doesn't want young girls to emulate her looks. They should develop their own individual style. And believe me, I'm making her sound alot smarter than she really is. Strange since she tries her best to look like Kim. Anyway, three of the women on the panel were outraged at Kylie's lack of clarity and said she should have told these idiots to stop what they are doing before they seriously hurt or disfiigure themselves. Whoopie was the only one to defend Kylie for copping out. Big surprise. The other women were clearly annoyed with Whoopie. Oh, and her butt ugly daughter was on the show. And had absolutely nothing of interest to say other than HER reality show airs this summer. WTF? When did Whoopie suddenly morph into Sharon Osbourne? Pawning off her putrid spawn on an unsuspecting public. I guess she's going to squeeze every opportunity she can out of her last year on The View. The second coming of Fatty Starbuckle. Oh, goody.
