by Anonymousreply 503/11/2019

r4, LOL.

r5, Yep, JournalistAbby is Hasselbeck Lite since she doesn't have Bill Gedde in her ear like LIzzy did. Meghabeast is like the crazy Bachelorette they have on The Bachelor each season and keep around for the buzz created but should have been sent home long ago. Only on The Bachelor they do eventually send the sobbing nutcase home but something has gone awry here and they keep giving this eye sore a rose. I want Chris Harrison to come and inform her she hasn't received a rose and she needs to say her goodbyes and leave -- quickly.

Wonder if Joy walked out hugging Abby just to piss off the beast at home watching.

by Anonymousreply 4403/12/2019

Meghan got a three-day time out after attacking the Parkland shooting kids, even if they used a bullshit cover story about food poisoning.

I suspect the producers do it so that she is out of sight and out of mind and the ire will die down more than they do it to punish her, but it’s still funny that they put her in time outs like she’s a toddler, since she has the temperament of a toddler.

But the Meghan McCain mystery is SO fucking puzzling. Not only was she a lot less partisan years ago, but she also seemed emotionally stable and able to think independently. Watch this video and try to think of her as the same woman from The View. It’s like she had a brain transplant.

Could she have a slowly developing brain disease, too?

Is glioblastoma hereditary?

My uncle was disgnosed with it years ago after he started falling down randomly. He was given three months to live, and within a couple of weeks of the disgnosis he became completely psychotic and died. But he was “off” for decades before then. He was a religious zealot who ran a rehab clinic and pursued a doctorate in religion. He saw ghosts. And he told us that one day the devil walked into his house through the sliding glass door. (I swear. And he believed it.) He told the devil, “in the name of Jesus Christ, I compel you to leave this house, Satan!” and Satan left through the door. A few decades later...brain cancer.

Meghan is in the public eye, so we should monitor her behavior and her beliefs. She might have something crawling around inside her thick skull. It is not normal to change from a reasonable and emotionally balanced person like she was five to 10 years ago into a raging nutcase.

by Anonymousreply 7503/12/2019

R75 They’ve always done that on this shown especially with the Bachelor. One host is always designated to “love” it, and it’s usually the newest one. Whoopi has always opted out of those conversations and said things like “I don’t know. I don’t care. But someone here does.” And Joy will say, “I don’t watch it. [Insert joke.]” Sunny clearly has it in her contract to pretend to like ABC reality shows. Whoopi’s contract demands that she sing the praises of Disney. Meghan is probably the only one on the panel lame enough to actually be into the Bachelor because she IS those drunk party girls who are parodied on SNL and desperate for some dick.

by Anonymousreply 7603/13/2019

The Bachelor is a superior show to The View. Whoopi has been watching every week from her deathbed. She has propositioned Colton via tin can and string. Whoopi pays for men, that's no secret. She likes them white. She pretends she's not into dating or knowing a guy's last name. No chitchat about love and NO overnights. Hit it and quit it. Like most of her other positions, it's the only one she can safely assume. No man could kiss or touch that hideous old monster without a 6 figure payment and a doctor on call. Goldberg's #MeToo accusers are the real cause of her pneumonia. Whoopi reminds me of a young case of sepsis.

How defensive McDaddy got when Joy disagreed with legacy admissions. She’s so proud that the men in her family went there for generations and MY FATHER is buried there. Good for her but that’s doesn’t make them better than the next guy who wants to attend. If our forefathers weren’t born here how the flip could we have gone for generations, it’s not some moral failing that we’re not good patriots like her family. God she boils my blood sometimes.

From Meghan’s art history thesis on Buddhist art and architecture:

“So in conclusion, I will say, while it is interesting that the bodhisattva Avalokiteśvara was given male form in India and then was depicted as the female ascended being Guan Yin as Buddhism migrated to Korea, the Korean war was not half as bad as the Vietnam was, where my father John McCain was held as a prisoner by American hating foreigners. As someone with an adopted foreign sister I am NOT racist even though I can tell you think I am, but according to the Republican National Committee, Asians are sixty four times more likely to commit violence against Americans than Indians, and we have a lot of them in Arizona, so I can vouch for that fact. One last thing: I enjoyed learning about this strange fake religion of Buddhism, but I do need to stand my ground and assert that I am a devout Christian lest any doubt be cast because you unfairly assigned this topic to me. I would write more but you never give me enough time so I GUESS I’ll wrap it up. My God!”

I liked how Joy spoke out against legacy admissions. Of course, Meghan had to defend it because of her family. She has no sense of objectivity. Anything that's personal to her is off-limits. I did like how she (Meg) defended Arizona State U, though. Lori Loughlin is a high school graduate, not a college graduate. Mossimo is apparently a USC graduate. (He said something dismissive of ASU, didn't want his daughter to end up there.)

She defended it because her family has a connection with their ‘leadership’ program. She didn’t think it was good enough for her though so pot meet kettle.

Caught the shade MeMe threw at Joy when she called Whoopie the first woman of The View.

by Anonymousreply 15503/15/2019

She is grotesque and has serious obsessive compulsive and narcissism disorders. She has give away that producers have told her to keep quiet until she is told it’s her turn, and the best she can muster is the disclaimer, “I know I am supposed to wait but can I talk now? I HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY. MY FATHER...”

They could be talking about bullfrog mating habits or a mass murder in a mosque or a viral video of baby goats making sugar cookies, and it will always be about her father, the military, how mean people are to her.

It’s truly the weirdest thing I’ve ever seen on network television. I have turned on Fox News on and off during the day out of curiosity and I’ve never even seen any of its hosts behave anything like McCain. I have seen clips of Hannity, Tucker Carlson et al online that show them being unhinged, but I think only the behind the scenes video of Bill O’Reilly and some of Alex Jones’s insane rants compare to what Meghan McCain does at least once a week on this show. Even if someone behind the scenes is in love with her for some reason, how can ABC News stand by and watch its reputation be so degraded by her?

I’ll keep saying it and one day it’ll be impossible for people to continue to ignore: ABC News is the broadcast networks’ version of Fox News. They’re more subtle about it, but they are working in service to the Trump regime regardless of Joy Behar’s and Ana Navarro’s aparrent criticisms.

Trump named ABC as his favorite network other than Fox.

ABC News got the exclusive interviews with Melania and Ivanka.

Bob Woodward reported in his book FEAR that when Trump’s pussygrabbing scandal hit, Kellyanne Conway immediately knew to call ABC and tell them to send David Muir, who came immediately, to do a short damage-control interview for Trump—and Chris Christi and Giuliani wrote the introduction for Muir’s interview.

Call me naive but I think ABC maybe getting a hint regarding Meghan.

The Twitter viewers have dragged her forever but that doesn't matter because it shows engagement.

However, the show is now getting negative press for her outbursts, unprofessional antics, being self-absorbed, etc..

The network probably doesn't like negative press.

by Anonymousreply 15903/15/2019

R159 The video above at R150, especially, does a great job of humiliating and shaming ABC without even questioning ABC explicitly. The guy says correctly that all of the women on The View now have to “babysit” McCain, who is utterly unqualified and who everyone in the audience understands is only there because of nepotism. He demonstrates with clips that McCain receives no audience reaction, and the awkwardness of her grandstanding followed by dead silence from the studio audience, while Sunny, who is superhumanly patient and who dares to use reason and evidence, gets applause every time she opens her mouth. ABC should feel absolutely humiliated. They’ve fucked up casting cohosts before, but I would go so far as to say that casting this woman and renewing her contract is probably the worst decision ABC has ever made.

R139, of course not, I'm just stating facts in regard to college admissions standards. I happen to think Sunny hs an excellent work ethic and I've said as much in former threads. She just never seems to acknowledge that part of her success is due to her being a POC.

If she is going to talk about every negative experience she or her family have suffered at the hands of a prejudiced person she should also acknowledge how she has benefitted by being a POC in this society. I think she has a very specific narrative she likes to set forth on The View and not speaking about positive life changes in regards to her ethnicity don't fit that narrative.

Oh, and today Joy made the most amateurish and tone-deaf segway when (not actually) discussing the massacre in NZ. It was so horribly handled and it shows Joy is not quite as fast on her feet as I had assumed.

Here’s a theory (that I made up): she is descended from one of the great great Navy ace fighter pilot grandfather’s bang sessions with the maid, because she sure as hell didn’t inherit her mother’s rich wasp bird bone skeletal structure. That wide, fat, squat body and gigantic, yet somehow still completely flat ass is pure pull-the-plow peasant stock. Refer to a non-pregnant Abby’s physique for someone who fits the profile.

She was making perfect sense. She has paid decades to an insurance company. She was near death and her doctor deemed a machine necessary for her recovery.

Of course Whoopi made perfect sense, but from paying any kind of insurance (car, health etc), she knows that's not how any insurance company works. Premiums we pay monthly aren't put into a savings account for each premium payer's future use. We just continue paying all sorts of insurance for the rest of our lives, that's how insurance company CEO become billionaires! Through our premiums and by constantly denying diagnostic tests which can save our lives. Americans cannot be so stupid, they don't realize the health care industry is a for profit business and those profits are huge. Rich people are no longer happy being millionaires, they want more money.

This is why healthcare in the US must change. Take the business aspect out of it, the CEOs, VPs and the shareholders, just pay the people who count, doctors, nurses. Not already overpaid CEOs, bureaucrats and pencil pushers who are determining your healthcare outcomes because of nothing but their greed.

Whoopi said comments before like - if I didn't get into an accident all year, give me my insurance money back. And similar things about health insurance. I don't know why she doesn't understand the premiums go into a pool that pay other people in the same insurance pool / company (and yes - it pays the executives and staff in the companies, but still - it can't all go back to the insured at the end). UHC's CEO made something like 100 million one year which is truly egregious, but generally speaking, you can't get your money "back" once you pay it in. There have been quite a few years I had expenses over my premium totals - and some where I used nothing - so it balances out.

Anyway, I wonder if they'd let Joy host while whoopi comes back to lessen the burden on her. I don't know if that can happen contractually or if it would make the dynamic screwed up, but it would be interesting to see.

by Anonymousreply 28403/19/2019

Meghan has now become self-conscious about mentioning her father by name so I've noticed she now brings him up in conversation by (as usual) veering off into her own topic. Today she said let's be clear that those who have lost a presidential election are not losers. I think it would be quicker and less time consuming to just let her say "My father" a few times during the show.

I also don't care for the way she said the audience is hostile to her because of her political views. There is such a lack of professionalism these days by so-called media personalities. They constantly play the victim by publicly insulting their audience. I cannot imagine how Barbara Walters would feel watching this behavior play out on a daily basis.

As for Whoopi, I don't think she's well enough to be out and about. Every time the camera was off her you could hear her coughing in the background. I don't know why they're dragging her in there each day just to moderate Hot Topics. I would think that would be exhausting for her and it would just take her longer to fully recuperate.

by Anonymousreply 28603/19/2019

Even though she's not good at her job I think she does surprisingly add 'name value' to the show. Especially with the revolving door of co-hosts the last few years. Simply put: none of the others are that recognisable to the rest of the country. Even Joy who has been on the show for years, just registers as middle-aged white female comedian. People still think she's Jewish. You see in the Facebook comments that the basics and fraus will even go as far as to say they'll stop watching if Whoopi ever leaves, or that SHE should be president (LOL). Sad but true, people like to watch celebrities they recognise.

It's like saying "oh Wendy said something this morning" or "I was watching Ellen and she said ____". ABC wants to get away from "I was watching The View and the ladies were talking about ____" because if it's just a bunch of random 'ladies' yelling at each other, people will start to tune out. Despite the original incarnation of the show being like that.

Even though she's horrible for the show I think you'll find she's very well-liked and well-recognised outside of it. Not only was she a big star in her brief period in the early 90s, but people grew up watching her films so she's kind of stuck with them for life and remembered fondly by those who watched Sister Act etc.

Their tension might go back to Priyanka's View appearance about two or three years ago, when she vehemently denied her very obvious nose job. I don't remember how the topic even came up, as the panel usually never asks any guest about their plastic surgery. As Priyanka denied her nose job, Joy kept raising her eyebrows.

Priyanka kept touching her nose and denying her nose job. Priyanka's mom was in the audience that day, her mom's nose was huge.

The excerpt from the book at R303 is fascinating. I kind of assumed the book would be a puff piece, and that they'd talk about some backstage quibbles and funny stories, the split screen disaster etc., but wouldn't properly go IN on each other.

I'd like to hear about those years from the perspectives of the others but Jenny's descriptions of both Barbara AND Whoopi borders on defamation of character lol. She's always been open about hating her time on The View, but this is something else. The Whoopi stuff isn't that surprising (except that she actually cares enough to want moderator duty since she seems not to take it seriously at all and barely speaks during some topics). It's also interesting that Jenny thinks Whoopi was legitimately underpaid and there seems to be an understanding that she WAS keeping the show afloat during those thin years.

I find it hard to sympathise with Barbara, even if it just paints her as a batty, senile old woman who didn't know any better. Not only has she been horrible her whole career (let's not even go into the Roy Cohn situation), but the way she treated Joy at the end was appalling and though she may have forged new ground in journalism for women, she was by and large a terrible interviewer.

I wonder if Rosie O will be able to get in her thoughts that Bill Geddie fathered one of Elisabeth's children (or whatever she was talking about on WWHL). This could get really nasty.

One more thing, i've noticed that a lot of former co-hosts have nothing but nice things to say about Whoopi when they leave. Which is as much a shock to me as it is to anyone who watches the show. Even Jedediah (who Whoopi treated like a piece of gum stuck to her shoe and whose name Whoopi probably doesn't even know) was showering praise on her and still sometimes does in other interviews even though she's a Fox airhead now. Michelle Collins, Candace CB, Sherri, Nicolle Wallace, Rosie Perez.... from what Sunny and Abby say it seems like she does a lot to help them and their families out when the cameras aren't rolling.

So it's interesting that Jenny's take is so different (and more in line with the Whoopi we see on camera).

That excerpt shows that both Barbara and Whoopi are extremely difficult people to work with. Whoopi's obsession with moderating was bizarre. Why would she be so obsessed with a role she doesn't appear to give a shit about. Joy is a hundred times more effective at the job. It doesn't look like the issue is money. The issue seems to be about control. Whoopi wants to be the boss. And Jenny was right that Whoopi plays favorites and cuts people off if she doesn't like them. It's very obvious she's doing that now to Sunny, who is both well informed and well spoken, and who has actually worked in the court system, and can look at a situation from both sides. Maybe she's intimidated by Sunny. And so is Meghan. In any workplace, sometimes the shitty workers clamber together to bully or ostracize the overachievers. (No one's worried about Abby, obviously.)

Imagine you've been a republican your whole life and now the leader of the Republican party is trying to turn the entire party against you. And people in your party...who are your friends...are publicly sympathizing with you, but they're too afraid to call out the bully. It's unreal. It almost makes me feel sorry for Meghan.

Thanks R303 - that was really interesting. I didn't realize how soon it was coming out.

I don't get the Whoopi moderator thing in that excerpt. Was she refusing to let BW moderate because she knew BW wasn't 100% with-it or more because she was a control freak? Whoopi wouldn't have had the job without BW & it kind of surprises me that whole dynamic was even allowed to happen. When they negotiated Whoopi's contract, BW could've stipulated that they switch at times.

I can't remember those seasons well, but didn't BW moderate on Fridays when Whoopi was gone altogether? And Barbara was rarely there 5 days a week, so the whole scenario seems odd.

Meghan hasn't defended Trump. She's a Republican, but she isn't a Trump Republican. Maybe the most she's said is "well, he's our president now and I don't want the president to fail so I hope he's surrounded himself with people who know what they're doing." I've heard that a lot and I don't think there's anything wrong with someone saying that. It doesn't mean they liked Trump or are even Republican. It just means they don't want to see the country implode.

Meghan is definitely shrill and annoying, but she's been pretty critical of Trump unlike a lot of fellow conservatives who seem too scared to speak up. I don't give her much credit, but I'll give her that.

R335 I agree. Trump is terrible, we all know that, but there is a very odd narrative among the media that McCain was a noble alternative to trumps degeneracy, a fundamentally decent man who would never stoop as low as Trump has. When in fact, McCain said and did things that were just as nasty. This narrative long precedes McCain's death, you could even see it in the movie Game Change. The book and movie peddled the lie that McCain and his little minions were hapless victims of nutty Sarah Palin. When in reality they were just as sleazy . As much as I dislike Trump, I've never quite bought the narrative that his sleaze and awfulness are unprecedented. McCain and Newt Gingrich were just as scummy as Trump but the media adored them. I think Trump is probably more open about his bigotry than McCain and Gingrich so the media is unable to cover up for him even if they wanted to . McCain and Gingrich were just savvy enough not to go full on Nazi but I think they shared a lot of traits with Trump.

R352 is right, R350, and ultimately, Meghan McCain does support Trump. She can mildly criticize him every single day, but as long as she remains a GOP propagandist and proudly identifies herself as a Republican no matter what, then she is promoting and enabling Donald Trump.

The past two years have been a test of “no matter what” for every Republican. They’ve been put to the test: what do you value more, your team affiliation and Republican brand identity, or the principles and values of your country? Meghan McCain has been chief among high-profile people who have said, “It doesn’t matter if swastikas are involved. I am a Republican, and I am proud, and I will do my part to advance the Republican agenda.” The Republican party, the @GOP Twitter account and all Republican leaders in Congress specifically praise Donald Trump and do not criticize him. On McCain’s part this is particularly egregious because in addition to the racism, the crimes, the efforts to undermine and destroy democracy, Trump has insulted and degraded the father she is so obsessed with—and McCain still will not say “Enough. This has gone too far. This party calls itself Republican, but it has nothing in common with my values any longer and it is anti-American, and I am leaving.”

Meghan McCain has no integrity. Worse, probably, she ultimately when it all boils down is mindlessly serving the man who is doing his damndest to get everyone in her party to shred up the memory of her father, and even her beloved, dead godfather Lindsey Graham has been persuaded to shit on her father. And still she identifies as Republican. She is a sad person with no integrity.

Integrity looks like Ana Navarro, who immediately said Trump is racist and that not only will she not vote for him, but she questions her identification with the party that supports him.

Integrity looks like Nicolle Wallace, who left the party because she wants to call herself Republican but recognizes the Republican party has chosen to become an anti-democratic extremist hate group.

Integrity even looks like Bill Kristol, who went from being a primary poster boy for all things GOP and conservative to saying “this GOP bears no resemblance to what I believe in or what I care about—my country.”

And integrity is Jimmy Carter, who publicly divorced himself from his church a few years ago on the grounds that its promotion of hatred is antithetical to his Christian beliefs.

People with integrity are anchored in values, not in labels and brand affiliations. Meghan McCain proves every day that she has none. She whines or cries or screams or, as of this week, holds her head high as people lavish her with sympathy, but she will not do the only thing that would honor her father, which he would have done by now: say “fuck this so-called Republican party: you’re a bunch of Nazi fascists, and I can no longer identify with you, the enemy of the people.” She won’t do it. She is absolutely betraying her father with her actions, despite her words.

It's sad to say, but I think whether or not Whoopi had good intentions (or even cared), we can probably agree that it's for the best that Babs wasn't allowed to moderate towards the end.

Even if you see her last couple of appearances that were PRE-TAPED, it's clear her brain is mush. Don't mean to be cruel but it's actually surprising to me that she's still kicking (however incapacitated she may be) considering it's been years since her first signs of severe senility.

In reference to BW, she made her career her number one priority. When she was scheduled to make a public appearance and received a call notifying her that her developmentally disabled sister was on her deathbed, she chose to stick to her schedule and her sister passed away before she was able to return home.

Now she's in the twilight of her life and is most likely at the stage of dementia where she can no longer recall many if any of her accomplishments. I wonder if it was worth it to her now to put career ahead of family. And I wonder if her daughter is present in her life.

It's odd, R116, that someone would attack Sunny over her academic pedigree when it isn't necessarily that impressive. She attended decent schools, but not elite universities. And R123 is right, affirmative action did play into her admissions whether she wants to believe that or not. Schools need a certain amount of people from certain ethnic/racial groups and she helped fill that quota, so to speak. She may have had better grades or scores than many white applicants, but her admissions still fall under affirmative action initiatives.

I find it funny/maddening that the introduction of Pete (but it could have been anybody) began with “I didn’t know who you were, but you’re very impressive...you went to HARVARD!!” only days after the elite university cheating scandals. During one glorious week, people discussed the reality that a brand-name pedigree doesn’t necessarily confer brilliance, but I guess it’s back to automatically jerking off anyone who went to an Ivy.

Pete is impressive regardless of his credentials. I thought it was a little weird that Sunny asked about reparations and then asked two probing and challenging follow-up questions because she doesn’t like what he said and seemed to expect him to say something more to her liking.

by Anonymousreply 41203/22/2019

It's obvious that Sunny is so easily impressed with anyone who has the elite academic pedigree that she doesn't. I think she is one of those women who worked really hard in school mostly likely in response to parental pressure, which she still lives under, but she wasn't lucky enough to be able to rest on the laurels of natural intelligence. She's just not naturally brilliant, and she knows it, and . seems insecure about that. She clings to stereotypical definitions of success - which is why she became a lawyer, married a surgeon, put her kids in an expensive private school, makes them play instruments and do all that other stuff that looks good on college apps, she probably also forces them to get good grades but I'll bet anything they are not naturally brilliant like she hoped because the genes aren't there. Sunny always comes across as the woman who is terrified to rebel so she clings for dear life to the staid, straight and narrow path her parents set out for her. I could never imagine living this way. It's also why she acted like why WOULDN'T anyone vote for Pete, he has done all these conventionally great things! (which he has, but that doesn't necessarily mean he is ready to lead the free world Sunny). Sunny thinks people like this are better and what scares me is that so does Trump.

Elizabeth Filarski, is Polish and Italian and was raised Roman Catholic. When did she turn Born Again/Evangelical?

I have an Italian-American close female friend who was Roman Catholic, During the many years of our friendship, she rarely talked about religion. About 10 years ago, she became an Evangelical lunatic. I can no longer be her friend, every conversation is about religion, she sends me email links to right wing Evangelical nonsense. When I asked her in an email if she was abandoning her gay brother and gay friends because of her new beliefs, there was no response. She's insane.

I always wonder why when people have some sort of crisis in their lives, they turn to religion.

OMG that was so fucking weird!

[quote]Although O’Donnell was attracted to Hasselbeck, she never wanted to act on it. “There was a little bit of a crush,” O’Donnell says in the book. “But not that I wanted to kiss her. I wanted to support, raise, elevate her, like she was the freshman star shortstop and I was the captain of the team.” O’Donnell changed sports metaphors from baseball to basketball. “I was going to Scottie Pippen her. If I was Jordan, I was going to give her and the ball and let her shoot. But it was in no way sexualized.”

[quote] “I think this is something that will hurt her if you write it. She was the MVP of a Division 1 softball team for two years that won the finals. There are not many, in my life, girls with such athletic talent on sports teams that are traditionally male that aren’t at least a little bit gay.”

[quote]The final straw was when Hasselbeck wouldn’t defend O’Donnell from conservative critics. “It felt like a lover breaking up,” O’Donnell says about her last day on TV with Hasselbeck. “The fight that we had, to me as a gay woman, it felt like this: ‘You don’t love me as much as I love you.’ ‘I’ve taken care of you.’ ‘You have not.’ ‘How could you do that to me?’ ‘I didn’t do anything to you.’”

So sunny said "and Rosie said it was mutual" or something, and then Elizabeth goes "the lord is going to speak through me right now" (or something similarly religious) and of course denied it and then did a #meToo claiming that Rosie's comments were akin to sexual harassment (gurl no - and Joy pointed out it wasn't acted on and Rosie never did anything to her...nice try lizzie). But it is weird that Rosie came out with all this.

Lizzie then said "just because you play softball, you're not a lesbian" or whatever. That was so bizarre. I never expected anything like that. I didn't even know Rosie put that out there (and Joy agreed - see the link).

The way this story is presented, it sounds like Joy was the instigator, speculating that Rosie had a crush on Elizabeth. When the interviewer later asked Rosie about it, Rosie didn't want to flat out lie, so she said it was a crush, but a nonsexual one. Possibly she didn't think that the discussion would be reprinted.

What a bad week for Rosie. The disappointing Mueller report was released on her birthday. Last week, the press carried stories about her having been molested, now this story...and Elisabeth's reaction. Elisabeth should have just giggled and made a joke like, "Well, I had no idea. She sure did a good job of hiding it when we yelled at each other across the table every day." Instead, she's acting like a five-year-old afraid of catching the cooties.

Evangelicals have long been co-opted by conservatives, who turn around and act and behave the exact opposite of Christ. They act Anti-Christ in every action they do and word they speak. Always vile, hateful, judgmental, and always cause harm.

People who cling soooooo tightly to religion (not believing or being faithful) and have to always talk about it are damaged beyond belief. They have no identity if they aren't sprouting their religious stuff non-stop. It is about control- control of others and of them as they want to be controlled because they are so damaged. They can't function without the structure of evangelical faith.

Meredith was a sexy cool woman who didn't seem to be hiding a monstrous temperament. But she is what DL would call a frau. Very kid focused with her sick husband and the honey voice, sexy skirts and no underwear. Pretty cool broad. She would never trash Barbara Walters the way that some of them are doing in the new book. She will tell some truth, but she was always a bit too classy for that show. As was Lisa Ling. All of the rest of them, from the sacred to the profane, deserve their greedy sweaty seat at the table. Even the nerdy clean Nicolle Wallace knew what she signed up for. Remember that season opener - they all came out and literally bowed and kissed Barbara's (retired) hand. GROSS.

Lizzie goes off on Barbara too in the "You'll Never View This Again" tell all. Barbara with all her small, on air corrections pissed off even her paid daughters. The book is where Rosie's bizarre softball story comes from too. It's gonna be tasty. The world IS flat. But like always The View won't address it in any meaningful or coherent way. Joy has secrets too and Whoopi has dead men not yet removed from her bed. The View is a terrible TV show and NO, I don't watch since Candace left. Who would? Why?

The woman’s publisher made hee put “The View” in her book title. She knows what they are paying her for, and it isn’t to proselytize The Gospel of Elisabeth.

Anybody else notice her subtle southern twang? She mentioned she lives in Nashville, so it might be honest, but that would mean that she is susceptible to influences and has a deep need to fit in if she picked up a southern accent after a few years in her 40s. She’s from Rhode Island, lived in NYC during The View and probably also while she was at Fox.

It makes me sad, the holier-than-thou-and-Rosie God obsession, the faux southern thing. I never agreed with her politics but I am one of few who thought she was a fine cohost. She had a good temperament most of the time, and I agreed with her in her fight with Rosie; there is nothing wrong with telling a friend to “defend your own beliefs. Don’t expect me to do it.” She was way less loony back then. Over the past two years I would have welcomed her hack to replace volatile hot airbag Meghan—or so I thought.

Elisabeth seems to have joined a megachurch cult.

I wonder if a sane person resides inside of her somewhere.

I found it really creepy how she kept talking about “grace” and how years ago she was graceless and now she’s...what? Touched by an angel? Above it all? Above her old self, above Rosie, above Joy’s jabs? It’s like she sacrificed her humanity to the creepy Christian God of Fox News Stepford hosts.

Joy seems to handle everything with such good spirits. I have difficulty imagining her trashing Barbara Walters to a gossip columnist. For all her negative attributes, Barbara did make Joy’s career.

I'm with Joy, I don't drink and it's really annoying when people who order several drinks want to split the check. But the real point here is Joy, Ana and Sunny went to lunch without the Heiresses.

Ana & Kennedy tore Trump/DeVoss new assholes today. If Whoopi had been there the intro & the segue would have eaten up have the allotted time. Kennedy handled NutMeg's remarks like a pro.

Can you imagine what Rosie’s house is like right now?

First it came out that her dad molested her

Then came that she was in love with EH and she thought it was “mutual”

Then EH went on tv and said that she felt Harrased and objectified and that she prayed for Rosie’s soul

Then the Mueller report came out and Trump got away with everything

Then it came out that Barbara hated her with a PASSION

Then it came out that Nicolle Wallace reported her to HR

Then it came out that Whoopi was mean to her and hated her with a Passion

Then it came out that Kelly Ripa hated her with a passion

Then it came out that her North Star Barbra Streisand betrayed her and at first defended MJ

Baba Wawa succeeded because she WAS such a flaming cunt r547. She’s a truly shitty evil person (friends with Trump and dated Cohn), and had a veneer of polished behaviour. The dirt that will get spilled about her when she buys it will be legendary.

Joy rubbing it in Mooghan’s face that she will never socialize with her on national tv today was spectacular. She was at least kind and appeared to act like she’d actually go to lunch with Abby, but openly ignoring McMydad was so great. Joy needs to keep the pressure up to make Moo crack for good on camera.

Wait I missed this one. Where was that? I knew they had major issues around the Trump feud but didn't realize it was like you said.

by Anonymousreply 57003/28/2019

Aright I just looked it up and am confused. The 2006 season (where BW threatened to quit) was when Rosie had the split-screen and walked off, never to return - right?

So the "if you re-sign her, I'm gone" comment was way before that - I guess? Oh I think this makes sense now when Rosie was totally obsessed over the fact they had "set the split screen up beforehand" and that Geddie was out to get her... sounds like she knew Geddie hated her for sure & BW was basically his partner in crime for a lot of things. She has to have known Barbara was a fake cunt given some of the examples above and how she ignored her for days on end ("I was on a boat") during the Trump feud. I read celebrity detox and still remember all of this somehow. This shit is better than the Housewives. Funny they pull from the same playbook though.

by Anonymousreply 57103/28/2019

I’m as gay as the come, but I have a hard time getting offended by Kelly Ripa’s comment to Clay Aiken.

Rosie is the one who outed him directly, which seems to be far worse to me. Ripa should have been more careful with her words because she wasn’t a friend of Aiken’s. If she had known him, I wouldn’t think it was a problem at all.

by Anonymousreply 57203/28/2019

Kelly Ripa homophobic? She's best friends with Andy Cohen, Anderson Cooper, Neil Patrick Harris, Ryan Seacrest and she's married to the stripper formerly known as Meaty Mark. I like Rosie more than most but she goes off on crazy tangents sometimes. Nobody wants to be friends with Clay Aiken but Meghan McCain. Kelly set Rosie's head back on straight. On air. Live.

The three bullies of the show will undoubtedly come in for the worst of it in this book. That's Barbara, Rosie and welcome to the view, Whoopi.

I do hope they spend some time exploring just exactly HOW stupid is Raven Symone though. And Elizabeth's very special position. (s)

by Anonymousreply 57303/29/2019

I wonder if they'll still treat Candace with kiddie gloves in the book. You know every single one of them thinks she's a fucking moron who didn't add anything to the show and had zero opinions to give.

I hope Michelle Collins and Raven go off on her.

by Anonymousreply 57403/29/2019

I can’t stand Kelly Ripa, but I think calling her homophobic is kind of ridiculous given the company she keeps. She, like Andy Cohen, Anderson Cooper and their creepy herd, is a narcissist and an opportunist. Sexuality comes waaaaaaaaay after what they can get out of people.

I agree with the person who said Rosie has a big heart, but I am also inclined to agree in this case with Bill Geddie: Rosie seems kind of crazy. Just looking at her tweets alone, her manner of thinking comes across as disorganized at best.

I don’t have any problem with her outing Clay Aiken for several reasons: 1) It was an open secret; 2) He hit on a friend of mine many years ago through Manhunt, and tried to use his quasi-celeb status to ‘lure’ the guy toward him, which my friend felt was almost predatory in the approach, and so he was basically taunting *someone* to out him; and 3) he is better off being out. Rosie did him a favor. Kathy Griffin can’t make mean jokes about Aiken trying to pass as straight when Aiken isn’t trying to pass. The truth does set us free.

So that said, I must also acknowledge Rosie’s hypocrisy. She lied publicly for a decade or so, pretending to have a mad crush on Tom Cruise, the creepiest of creeps. That is evidence that she is willing to compromise her integrity and it makes her high-and-mighty stance quite questionable.

Everyone has flaws. I don’t think Rosie is malicious, but I think she is mentally ill and capable of hurting people. And at the same time, I think she probably accidentally outed Clay Aiken but also must have known once she realized what she had done that it would ultimately benefit him because she compromised herself in a similar way for years, and that probably contributed to how wacko she has become over time.

I love that the book goes in depth about how much everyone legit hated everyone and the hostile working environment from producers to on camera talent....and yet... we are supposed to live in a fantasy world that everyone in the current panel are all sisters and besties despite the fact that everyone clearly still hates each other..

They wonder why the middle of the country always called Hollywood phonies and assholes

by Anonymousreply 57703/29/2019

Lol every workplace is full of backstabbing plonies and assholes. My father works in a factory in middle America and the bitching that goes on between the all male workforce there would give “The View” a run for its money.

Re-watching the Elisabeth segments, I love that Joy said she was thrilled when they fired her and she didn’t care if they fired her again. I wonder if that was a message for the producers?

by Anonymousreply 57803/29/2019

R578 Joy has been interesting this season. The show dedicated an episode to her 20-year anniversary and she kept insisting that it made her uncomfortable because the tribute reminded her of the one they gave her after they fired her. She said “you think I’m joking. I’m not kidding. This is uncomfortable.” So she made it clear then that being fired was traumatic for her.

Then this week she said that she was happy and felt like other doors were opening. Both can probably be true, but the statements she made couldn’t be more different.

All the while though she has balanced being professional and being candid. She tolerates Meghan especially when she is playing the moderator role, but she doesn’t take personal bullshit from her and has (thank God) pointed out Meghan’s hypocrisy several times. I am still baffled that no one is allowed to reprimand Meghan for unprofessional conduct on air...but Meghan’s recent demeanor has suggested that she’s finally being told to act like an adult and not to misrepresent herself as a journalist. That is a kind of progress, even though Meghan is a brat through and through and I am 100 percent certain that even if she is modifying her behavior a bit, she is feeling unfairly victimized in the process and once she is done with the show will rage publicly, probably on Fox or The Blaze or the Trump News Network, about how she was censored (meaning not allowed to have toddler-style tantrums or pretend to be a journalist or a member of Congress).

Bill Geddie was the original co-ExProducer with Babwa. As much as Babwa liked to look supportive of women and women's issues, she let Geddie turn the show into a bitch fest for entertainment purposes.

Isn't Geddie the bio father of one of Hassleblech's kids?

I hope THAT makes it into the book.

It's difficult to tell, especially as her fug husband also has squinty small eyes. Think the daughter she's holding here is the eldest of her three kids.

Which kid is supposedly Geddie's?

by Anonymousreply 59603/29/2019

I had a boyfriend who, like Meghan, took everything personally. It was impossible to communicate with him and I ended the relationship because of it. Listening to the other ladies trying to communicate with Meghan reminds me of that time in my life. Ana today had to say I’m not talking about you. Joy had to say this isn’t about you when she was giving her opinion of legacy students at universities. Meghan is going to have to learn to stop taking things personally, she’s on the defensive all the time. She needs to see a therapist about it. I’m not sure if she’s a narcissist or if she had something happen in childhood that has made her feel everyone is out to get her.
