Will that fucking book ever come out?

Answer to Thread 16: Yes

Meghan has made me lose all respect for Whoopi Goldberg, and I really did respect her career. Oh well.

Meg is off the rails. She is acting like the president she hates, or pretends to hate.

Any other job she’d be fired by now. The privilege dripped from her today when she giggled and said “just sayin”. Even when Whoopi started to speak she was still giggling. I mean the audience reaction alone would shame any normal human into looking contrite. This bitch was giggling like a 14 year old.

And shut down yet again by not getting her split screen moment. McGunt really is a walking pile of pork rinds and garbage.

Someone is going to bitchslap McGunt in life tv and it won’t be Joy. Joy openly hates her but keeps her composure. The contempt she feels for McGunt just drips off her but she’s a good enough human being to not let it affect her completely. Stay strong Gramma Joy, that bitch’ll fuck up past the point of no return soon enough.

They were discussing the leaked backstage "fuck this" audio from Elisabeth H. at The View.

I know someone who is very much like Whoopi, who idolizes her, and I love her but her pride is the one thing that really irks me. She will apologize for anything that was not an idea she pushed for. If that falls through, she is incapable of admitting failure.

This from a review of THE BOOK might explain why Meghan gets away with it:

"...despite the fact that ABC executives were aware of what was happening, the book describes how they repeatedly failed to put a stop to what was going on behind the scenes ― alleging they even participated in stigmatizing mental illness and brought back a host they knew was unquestionably abusive to staff and co-hosts."

So they foment the bad behavior for ratings. I know, what a shocker. Her cuntery brings in the eyeballs. I'm sure their ratings will be up tomorrow after this shitty stunt.

I have no doubt her dad’s dog passing was hard but it’s not an excuse to bully your coworkers and it’s not an excuse to disrespect them on live TV.

Barbara Walters is quoted in the Setoodeh book as saying “Rosie O’Donell is a great talent, but she has...shall we say, emotional problems.”

Having watched Rosie O’Donnell for most of my life, I am certain that that is a fair (and pretty generous) statement.

Rosie strikes me as a fundamentally good-hearted person. She shares some terrible personality traits with her arch rival, including a fragile ego, reactivity, defensiveness, atendency toward childish name calling, a generally poor New York-type attitude, and a need to be the dominant authority in any situation. The biggest difference between them that I see is that Trump looks for damaged and weak people to prey upon and punish, and Rosie O’Donnell seeks out those people to protect. Both of them play victims as a matter of course. And Rosie is not entirely authentic. Her false decade-long Tom Cruise adoration as she was “playing straight” for the sake of being palatable for housewives everywhere even as Ellen DeGeneres was relegated to obscurity after coming out maybe is not condemning of Rosie O’Donnell, but it doesn’t speak well of her character and authenticity.

by Anonymousreply 7404/09/2019

One of the problems is none of the other women are going to say anything TOO bad to Meghan on the air because they realize they have some of the cushiest jobs on morning television and don't want to risk being booted off the show. What we need is a loud, outspoken guest to come on and really rail against McCain. What cold the show do except cut the guest's segment short and possibly ban them? But if the guest is a really big name, they wouldn't do it.

R75 Yes. Chelsea Handler recently morphed from unfunny comedian to pretty well-spoken activist, and she will be on The View today to plug her new importance-of-therapy spiel. I asked her on Twitter yesterday to correct McCain on air if she gets out of line, and to please remind McCain to respect her elders, since Handler seems legitimately fearless and doesn’t have any worry about being fired from the show. But I’m sure she will be perfectly pleasant and sarcastic generally and respectful of McCain. Which is a shame.

R78, "jewish mother" is a figure of speech. Yes, it's based on a stereotype of real Jewish mothers (like Joan Rivers), but it's used to describe a maternal figure who hovers and is very (perhaps overly) attentive and protective of a younger person who has been taken under the wing of the older person. I think it's also fair to call Whoopi a "Jewish mother" to Meghan, with her excessive coddling and "babe" terms of endearment towards someone whose views are fundamentally different from her own.

I agreed with Elisabeth Hasselbeck when she fought with Rosie O’Donnell. And her point applies to everyone on the show. They are all there to share their personal views. Elisabeth told Rosie to “defend your own thoughts and your own insinuations.” That is fair. They’re not there to agree on the basis of liking one another. As much as I disagree with all of Elisabeth’s politics, and as much as I am disturbed by her current god-cultishness, “defend your own thoughts” equates to “you are accountable for yourself.” Period. All of the women on the show should be, but one and only one in the history of the series has not been held to account. Meghan McCain is a dishonorable woman with no integrity and no courage of her convictions. She has undermined the entire premise of the show, as well or as poorly as it has ever been executed. Despite her naivety/ignorance, many of us liked Sherri Shepherd (and even Candace Cameron) well enough as people because they held themselves accountable and didn’t think their opinions were always correct and trump others’ by birthright. McCain does. She is a scary television figure because she is _exactly_ the same personality type as Trump, and one Trump is one too many.

r87 then you missed the whole point. Hasselbeck was not on the view, she was on Fox News, and they were bashing Rosie saying she sided with the 9/11 attackers. Rosie was upset Elisabeth didn't defend her, someone who works with her is supposed to be her friend and, to Rosie's credit, though did not believe that. Hasselbeck said nothing in defense of Rosie which Rosie took to mean she agreed with them. That was the core of the fight. Hasselbeck's defense was "defend yourself" which was a cop-out. Rosie was not there, and Elisabeth should have said, Rosie is not here to defend herself so we should not be discussing it and for the record, I don't think that is how she feels. Instead, Hasselbeck was to scared to challenge her fellow conservatives and allowed her supposed friend and co-worker to be a target.

R94, Rosie never called the troops "terrorists." She said that if you can muster the empathy to look at the situation from the point of view, those people were being attacked by a country that they didn't attack first (because Bush mistakenly believed the country had WMD, and then later he said God told him to attack). So when those mothers on the other side lost their sons, they felt that their sons were taken from them by hostile invaders.

But it was the era of "trust our president" and "freedom fries", and the Right was trying to label everyone who didn't fall in line as a traitor. In spite of all this, Rosie many times expressed her support of the US troops, she were themselves in a precarious situation as they were forced to do Bush's bidding.

During her FOX interview, Elisabeth should have said, "Whether you agree with her or not, Rosie supports the troops and wants them to come home safely. She doesn't want casualties on either side. Where I disagree with her is: --------------.

R106, yes that was horrible. And when Kelly tried to explain the reasons for her actions, Rosie completely blocked her out and refused to consider bending from her original conclusion she had drawn.

Then several years later, she runs into Ripa at some play, and Ripa understandably gives her the cold shoulder instead of playing fake nice, and Rosie tweets: "Kelly Ripa - the girl can hold a grudge." Well, I think I'd hold a grudge too if someone falsely labeled me a bigot on live TV and then later wanted to act like it never happened.

Then, in the book that was released last week, Rosie complains that Ripa didn't want to talk about it, instead she wanted to have a feud. Well, Rosie, Ripa DID want to talk about it....during that phone call, but you flat out told her that you didn't believe her and you weren't going to even consider her explanation.

Rosie's has a good heart, but sometimes you just want to slap her. She fucks up relationships, refuses to apologize or admit she was wrong, and then blames the other party for not wanting to be friendly with her later. She thinks she can treat people like shit and they should just suck it up and forget about it and still be there when she wants/needs them.

The diet doctor kinda got it wrong. Intermittent fasting is ok but the big glass of orange juice (sugar) defeats the purpose of fasting. The purpose is to keep your insulin low. So when you do eat, it’s best to keep the carbs down. I lost about 30 lbs this way.

And Joys skepticism of the lasagna was accurate. That was funny “what kind of mozzarella is in there? Hm?”

Maybe Joy keeps smiling because she knows she has a nice big case and settlement in her future with whatever goes on behind the scenes in addition to the actual footage of the on air treatment. I doubt her contract allows for the same mistreatment some reality show contestant's contract does.

Fatty McNepotism probably didn’t sit in on Chelsea Handler’s segment because Chelsea would have sliced her into sashimi, insult by insult. Chelsea openly said TO Grasshoppervanka that she wouldn’t and couldn’t shake her hand and say nice to meet you. Imagine what she would have said to McGunt.

I bet McGunt waddled away in fear doubletime the minute Chelsea was leaving her green room. McGunt keeps trying to reach out to Joy (inviting her for drinks, asking about going to dinner with her Mexican Nazi husband, asking about lasagna), and Joy keeps telling her to screw, and then being nice to Abby.

by Anonymousreply 19304/10/2019

Sounds like Walters offended a lot of people, but was there any way around it, particularly on The View? The Daily Mail story above describes how she fired cohosts when they were no longer useful. But...that’s television. Actually just show business. Actually just business. If I didn’t do my job satisfactorily, I would be fired. I am not paid to be there because my boss once hired me and is stuck with me forever. In showbiz, almost all performance jobs are cutthroat to begin with: they involve extensive auditions and only one person can win each position. So why not call everyone who ever auditioned “cutthroat” for keeping competitors from getting jobs by being the best fit for the role?

Barbara Walters’s memoir was called “Audition.” It seems like she was pathologically paranoid about always having to fight for her work, probably because she always had to fight for her work.

Don’t get me wrong. She seems horrible. But being horrible and ruthless probably was the only way a woman could have made a career like Walters did.

by Anonymousreply 19404/10/2019

I agree R194.

Also DM being for the British market I think that article would be more “shocking” here. It’s harder to fire people and there’s definately still a sense that once you’re “in the door” you should be left there for life and we have a lot of people in the public sector where they can’t be fired either. So, Barbara during people when they weren’t useful to her/the show would be shocking. To young people in the gig economy and Americans in the private sector it’s not particularly noteworthy.

Barbara has always been ruthless and cutthroat. I remember years ago when Lindsay Lohan was A list she cancelled an interview with Barbara and instead went on with Jay Leno. Barbara spent 5 minutes ranting about it and saying through gritted teeth “I’m happy for my colleague”.

I can't get with Rosie. How does one take her compassionate liberal stance seriously when she's made people who work under her miserable? When you actively assert your power over individuals in an excessive way, and in such a way that it makes their lives miserable, you can't take this "woman of the people" stance. I just don't get that. Whoever hires her knows what they're in for.

Barbara Walters allowed her career to become way too important in her life. Her last lucid years were spent desperately clinging to whatever power she could, and being depressed over her increasing irrelevance in American society. And she herself made tons of people miserable in the process. All that fucking wasted time plotting and scheming, and what did it amount to?

Whoopi is just too goddamned fucking fragile. Honey, you have a place in popular culture. People like you. You don't have to fly off the handle at any perceived slight. I think it would suck to go through life having everyone walk on eggshells around you. Ugh.

Joy is a normal, decent person.

Meghan McCain is a giant fart in a dress. I hate her with the burning power of a million suns. That Miss Piggy is taken seriously on any level amazes me. Her intellect is amazingly mediocre. I just don't know how she's on television.

The book paints Rosie as an unhinged egomaniac, who destroys anything she touches. With the McCain, Behar fiasco, and the constant sniping, combined with all of the cable Housewife, Married to Medicine, etc. shows which show women as selfish, immature, unintelligent shrews, why has no women's movement objected to these shows? They certainly show at their very worst. They would probably say that men are responsible for putting on these shows.

A lot of women like the anger and bitchiness portrayed. My brother’s wife is a conservative SAHM who watches all the Housewive franchises and the Kardashians, back in the day she watched the afternoon shows where people were beating each other up on air. I asked her about it and she told me she feels she has to keep up a front of the sweet woman and she enjoys watching the Housewives release anger and let loose. She said she has lots of moments where she would love to punch something but instead she has to smile and be nice so watching the Housewives pull of each other’s wigs is a big release for her. I’ve often pondered that and wondered if more women played a sport, lifted weights, punched a sandbag would it make them less “bitchy” because my SIL is right that most women have no physical outlet for their anger and frustration.

It was interesting that on social media so many women reacted to the Meghan/Joy thing with such detailed and violent fantasies. They were saying Joy should have leaped across the table and done x,y,z and some of those suggestions were very well thought out and graphic. You just know that fantasy was brewing inside for a long time, they didn’t just come up with it on the spot.

Name one show about women that portrays them in the light which they deserve, especially now that the fight for empowerment is taking hold. On the contrary, there is a huge percentage of women who like to see the fighting and screaming. How is that helpful to the cause?

Yes, R232, women are the minority. Not in population, but in positions of influence and advancement opportunities. Do they have to prove themselves? Unfortunately the answer is "Yes." The status quo puts an undue burden on them to prove themselves. Should they have to? " No," but everyone should have to prove competence. The unfortunate thing for women is that men still hold much of the power and men get the first opportunities. That is simply the case. Deny it if you like, but it is the case. Now, when the vast majority of programming portrays women as vacuous dolts ( whether they are in real life or not) and no women's empowerment group will stand up to this portrayal, then one has to wonder about the damage this tacit "approval" contributes to the idea that"women are inferior" or " they're too emotional to be taken seriously in business or politics."

I tried to watch the YT of Heiresses' asking each other questions that supposedly viewers sent them but couldn't get through it, it seems to be just these two spoiled brats complimenting each other. I skipped ahead and did catch McHeifer saying she wants to move to Nevada and buy and run a casino and have Clay Aiken be her headliner. Can someone please put her in touch with a real estate agent in Vegas STAT, let's make this happen for her sooner than later. Are TPTB also going to do YTs of Joy/Sunny or Joy/Ana, Sunny/Ana or is it just something special to coddle the Heiresses . I don't need one with Whoopi pontificating and giving a mini TED Talk.

R240, no one is denying, and you don't need to point out that it's a man's world and women who far out-qualify men still get the short end of the stick. We're talking about an attitude that is evolving now, where more women are stepping up to take ownership as half of humanity, not "representing as a minority" and waiting for mens' approval or for men to fix things or give up power.

Interesting new book

by Anonymousreply 24304/11/2019

It's such a shameless and transparent attempt to try and correct (a) Abby's lack of personality, and (b) Meghan's bad PR of recent times. But if you look at the amount of dislikes the videos have, and the comments ("real question: what are your thoughts on nepotism") you realise just how unpopular they are.

I can't believe how much effort they're making for these two to 'work'. How many concessions Mooghan gets for screaming at the audience or saying something offensive. The fact that they will hire Abby a personality coach but didn't extend the same patience to many of the other co-hosts like Nicolle Wallace.

Women can’t win. If women’s groups and women in general kick up a fuss women will suffer from the inevitable backlash against those who take a stand. I also think it would be limiting for women to be portrayed as “perfect” in the media too. First they’re not they are human and second most women can’t identify with perfection, like men they are flawed and complex beings. The best thing for women is to stop giving a damn what men as a group think of them. Women have spent decades trying to get male approval and it hasn’t worked. No matter what choice a woman makes there’s a group of people ready to call her the spawn of Satan.

Such women would never watch The View. No one should. Though Meghan is beautiful and inspirational, she's been held back from leading. She is NOT a guest in Joy Behar's world. Joy is barely present in her own mind! Don't watch women make a mockery of themselves. Whoopi will end her career in Mexican wrestling. Meghan reminds me of a young, more beautiful Gloria Steinem.

I’ve been reading batches of the book every morning. I am about a third of the way through now, at the Star Jones bridezilla section.

All the women except Star and Barbara are described as being put off by the hawking of products, and the text says that in the ABC News division this would be a problem but since The View was part of ABC Daytime at the time, it had “a little more wiggle room.”

So I flipped to the index expecting to find “view your deal” and there is no mention of it.

The View used to be an ABC Daytime show. It was handed over to ABC News years ago, and since that time the show has implemented the home-shopping segment. How is that OK?

I saw it in the audience today and here are some things … sort of stream of consciousness. I posted somewhere above that I was going to see it this Friday. In general, with it being Friday and with 1 week off coming up, they sorta were laid back and it didn’t seem remotely tense. I kept trying to see awkwardness between Joy and Meghan but there really wasn’t any when the cameras were off.

View Your Deal was pre-taped & so was the interview with David O. – so, taking out all of that and the commercials, we had about 15 minutes of “The View” in the hour. Joy briefly recorded a promo in the end for some affiliate – Joy was actually trying to correct the bad wording & then they made her redo it.

In general, they were in a good mood on camera and especially off camera when they interacted with people. People in the audience were even singing during the breaks (which were very long thanks to the tapes). There were 2 guys from the Temptations there in the front row, but they weren’t on the show (not sure why they were there). Sunny said she couldn’t get good seats, so she didn’t go yet… a few people were singing with them. Maybe they were supposed to plug the show?

A guy had a “WWJD” shirt with Joy’s face in the audience. So, the stand-up comic (during the 8-minute break when they were playing David O’s tape) went over to him and had Joy say hi to him. He couldn’t ask her anything and said he was “fangirling out” – and Joy said “What would I do – about what? I don’t understand… what does it mean, what would Joy do?” He couldn’t explain it – he was too tongue tied. And then they brought him up to take a picture with Joy (I should’ve worn a shirt – and I could’ve explained it!)

The comic came through the audience to ask us if we had questions and I asked her what they think of the “Ladies who Punch” Book – and she said she probably shouldn’t ask that but she said the author asked her to interview a ton of times (she’s been there many years) and she wouldn’t respond. So, then I jokingly said “what about the leaked audio from Elizabeth” and she sort of tried to avoid having a response (she heard me), and then asked who else had questions. Someone else asked what they think about Assange and so she asked the panel and Meghan yelled “THAT IS NOT A FRIDAY QUESTION SIR! CAN WE GET SOMETHING LIGHTER FOR FRIDAY?!” - but she was laughing when she said it. Her personality off camera isn’t as cunty as it is bratty… I don’t know why she can’t tone it down on camera. She said “I just got in a huge fight with [someone] and I am not talking about that” so Sunny and Ana clarified some of the charges and didn’t discuss their opinions.

Meghan didn’t seem as fat as I was expecting. Whenever I get the film pics developed, I can post them when she’s standing up (they won’t allow cell phones out once the show starts). Nobody will believe me here, but I was very surprised that she wasn’t that big. I’m watching it on my phone off my DVR at home and she looks enormous and horrible in that yellow (but the yellow was fine in person too). On stage, her size was nothing I’d even notice if she walked by me on the street. The makeup she had on also didn’t look like the weird racoon thing she has going on when you watch the show. Sunny’s nose also looks totally normal and doesn’t have those weird contour lines. Someone needs to intervene with these things… everyone else notices.

by Anonymousreply 30804/12/2019

The conversation is very controlled & weird in person (and harder to hear). When I see it on TV, I don’t get that vibe since the camera keeps cutting & making it seem like it’s flowing & snappy. If I overheard a restaurant table of women talking this way – it would be incredibly odd. The clock counts down and it’s under 5 minutes per live segment (when I was there). Plus they are being far more deliberate / careful about how they answer with some topics vs. just 4 women talking at lunch. And they have to get the plugs in and legal notes, etc. It’s strange to hear people talk like this in person… hard to describe though.

Sunny came into the audience and talked to some people from Puerto Rico. Sunny is very thin (and so was Holly Robinson Pete who is like 90 lbs) – so maybe this is another reason Meghan looks so fat?

I got a bracelet (I think the Holly Robinson Pete one? It just looked cheap) and nail polish (hooray). Nothing from View Your Deal since they already taped it (it looked crappy anyway).

The waiting room and process to get in wasn’t bad at all. I was surprised how much people complained on Tripadvisor. Nobody was rude. What did they expect – private chats and autographs with the panel? It was nice enough for Joy to take a pic with that guy and Sunny walked around a little bit. People actually screamed out “We love you Meghan” during the break – and I was like – who is that?? But it was mostly tourists (from all over the world – there were Australians next to me who don’t get the show anymore), so maybe someone from some red state.

R308/309 Thanks for reporting back. I agree with you about Meghan. When I saw the show in Feb I think I posted that she wasn’t obese as much as chubby and badly shaped. She had a tight dress on and all the chub is in the stomach, arms and neck which is an unlucky shake of the genetic cards for a woman. I also agree the conversation sounds awkward from the audience. I was there for one of their spats so the atmosphere was awful. Watching it back later it seemed more natural.

That’s funny about Joy wanting an explanation of WWJD. I met her years ago after she did a set at Joes Pub. I told her I was a big fan and watched her HLN show. She sort of studied my face for a moment and said “why, what do you like about me?” The first and last time a performer wanted further details after getting a compliment.

Please do share your pics when you get a chance and enjoy the rest of your time in the city.

As for her husband he was born in SC (that's South Carolina for you foreigners.) He's of Puerto Rican and Dutch-Irish descent. He's not Mexican. For someone who uses the "unhinged Trump supporters" mantra every chance you can get you actually come across like a "Nazi Trump supporter."

I think I got all the questions...

Which one is Ben? The producer with the glasses? I'm not sure where he stays but he came up to the stage after most of the commercials.

The ticket said that the check-in deadline was at 9. I got there around 8:45 & was outside until around 9:15. They scan your ticket when you're in line. A lot of people already were there before me. They bring you in to the ABC cafeteria which was nearly full by the time I was inside. You're seated the studio around 10:30 & out a few minutes after 12. They have a lot of staff to make sure this all goes smoothly from shifts to go to the bathroom or starbucks. They're dealing with 100-150 people & a small space, but it all works out. It's really just the ABC office building & The View is sort of a small part of the whole thing.

Thanks r313- I'm glad I went. I almost didn't go after the reviews were so bad, but I think it was you who put that in perspective. It was totally normal for a show taping. They were actually nicer / more interactive than I thought, probably because 1/2 the show was already taped.

McNepotism finally got her split screen -- on SNL. Aidy was good as "the princess of Arizona". They went easy on her but I'm still pleased they gave it a shot.

Kate as Joy was weak.

Cecily as Abby and Leslie as Whoopi were good.

by Anonymousreply 32204/13/2019

Aidy was great; Kate was miscast (guess she can't do everything)

Cecily's 'really? me first? ok!' was hilarious.

they'll bitch about this on Monday; Joy will say it was funny; MM: I don't get it.

She's John Heard in BIG

SNL fail. The View segment opened with Whoopi saying “President Trump...” Which Whoopi so proudly refuses to say. But I agree Leslie did a good job as Whoop. Even her fumbling of a line felt like it was in character even though I’m sure it wasn’t meant to be.

by Anonymousreply 33404/14/2019

I mostly liked Abby until a month or so ago when they played a clip of AoC doing an Instagram live video and she said something along the lines of “a lot of young people are asking if it’s responsible to keep having children because of overpopulation’s effects on the planet,” and Abby turned almost as Incredible Hulkish as Meghan with an insane interpretation. “I’m sorry, but this is an EXTREMIST! This is THE MOST EXTREME THING I have EVER heard from an elected official. SHE WANTS TO DO AWAY WITH THE HUMAN POPULATION. SHE WANTS TO ELIMINATE US FROM THE PLANET. If THIS is how the Democrats want to represent themselves, well then there’s just no hope for the Democratic party!!!”

How the fuck she heard “let’s exterminate the human species” from what AoC said is beyond me, except of course that Abby is a Mormon cult member at heart and believes the whole point of life is to pop out as many babies as possible to populate Planet Zeexgzorp in The Afterlife. What a loon.

Wahoo! I am kinda excited to see McKinnon as the weak link, finally. I don’t want to see her fail, really, but she is so overused on the show that maybe they’ll think twice before just throwing her into any skit. She can be hilarious, but like Kristin Wiig, I’ve come to resent her a little bit just because it now seems like it’s “Saturday Night Live! Starring Kate McKinnon and company!” Cecily Strong is as good, Aidy is consistently very funny even if she sort of blends in, and Melissa Villaseñor surprises me a lot. I forget she’s there until she shines in a role. She was a pretty perfect Ana Navarro.

SNL was terrible laat night, even though Emma Stone is usually funny. The material is just abysmal. I’ve been annoyed that they stopped mocking The View, but last night’s episofe squandered a lot of ridicule-ready reality, primarily from McCain. I AM STILL TALKING ABOUT MY FATHER should be the basis of at least one entire skit, with all the women taking turns heaping over-the-top praise on John McCain, because that’s about all The View is anymore. Meghan McVain is a walking, screaming self-parody.

Said McCarthy: “It was all a lie, it was all a lie so we wouldn’t take the next job.”

She continued of Shepherd: “Sherri was also looking at other opportunities. She was renegotiating at the time, so to keep someone — and I even said that to them. I go, ‘I’m a single mother with a special needs kid. Not that that’s a reason to keep anybody, but to keep me away from getting other work when I have other TV offers and I turn them down is really s—ty,’ which I’ve told face-to-face.”

[quote]Kate as Joy was weak.

They could have easily had Fred Armisen guest as Joy. He's been in NYC working on Seth Meyer's show, he's been the band's drummer the past few weeks. Fred was the original drummer on Seth's show. Since the female drummer was fired years ago, Seth's show has a revolving cast of drummers. Then, Fred never came back permanently because he was busy working on 'Portlandia". Seth's show has been using guest drummers every week. Fred does come back occasionally.

Both NBC studios are in the same building. Fred should have been called in to do the The View sketch. Kate was totally awful as Joy.

Aidy had a real moment with Meghan's combination eye roll, suck in the cheeks, make pouty face and defiant hair toss response to "Joy." It was pretty brilliant characterization. The script needed more content for them to dig into. "Whoopi's" water spraying and (raspy) saying we're not gonna do this felt just right too. Ana needed more airtime because Melissa Villaseñor had her down - including her little Down Syndrome face.

Melissa v. Sounds like Kermit. I cannot stand her voice.

by Anonymousreply 36004/14/2019

Reading the Rosie section of the book now. Mark Gentile, director, called her medically and clinically insane. I believe it because she sounds exactly like a VP I had to work with for a decade. She took over the organization I worked for. She ran it, and everybody knew it. She steamrolled the president and he rolled over every time they had a conflict. Eighty percent of the people she hired would quit within a year or two, after months or years of crying and (including me) suddenly developing severe health problems, likely related to the stress of working for her or in my case with her. Her chaos finally drove the organization to the brink of collapse, her whole staff revolted and threatened to go to the board, which was willfully oblivious, and while our finances looked good on paper, her departure realized she had been mismanaging grants, including not doing work we were funded to do, and had managed even to smokescreen our accountants and auditors. When Trump ascended, I was a little less bewildered than many people because I recognized her narcissistic sociopathy as the same as this woman’s.

Interestingly, Rosie, Trump and the woman I’m talking about are all from NYC.

I do think Rosie’s intentions are to help, not personal attainment and greed like Trump’s motivation, but I think her bulldozer personality and her insane ego corrupt her intentions. She really does sound (believably) like the same personality type: While her intention was to “save” Barbara Walters, her plan to do it was based entirely on Rosie’s narcissistic self-superiority, and she ruined so many lives because she KNEW that she knew how to do every single job better than any given person whose profession was to do that job. So she executed every job, robbed people of their livelihoods, and ended up feeling victimized because everything she did was to help and to use her genius to make things better.

Trump and Rosie are exactly alike in temperment and psychoses.

by Anonymousreply 36204/15/2019

Interesting, though, from page 178...Rosie seals her fate by observing following 9/11 that all U.S. media are owned by four corporations, including Disney, and that American media serve the American people propaganda. She tells viewers to look at foreign news coverage to discover the realities of who we are.

Elisabeth said, “You think we’re brainwashed as a whole country? I think not.”

Cut to Rosie being fired.

Cut to Elisabeth joining Fox News.

Cut to 2019: Elisabeth guests on The View and...”God, God, thank God almighty, God has blessed me, God save America, grateful to God, I’m God-loving, I’m God-fearing, God bless America!”

Rosie may have a monstrous personality, but she’s also correct.

by Anonymousreply 36304/15/2019

What bothered me about Rosie was the gleefully way she fired people. If someone disagreed with her, she tried to get them fired. It's the ultimate power trip. Just like Trump and 1980s-era Roseanne Barr.

She seemed to defend that attitude in the book, suggesting it was the only way to elicit change. Well, what about employee satisfaction and loyalty?

by Anonymousreply 36404/15/2019

Yes R364 and not only “to elicit change,” but specifically the changes that she dictated because she believed absolutely, like Trump does, that collaboration and allowing others to make sovereign decisions their jobs charge them to do is wrong—because they should only do what she dictates, because that is always the best thing to do. She is a dictator in pure terms. Even when it was not her job to produce the show, she produced and directed the show and she called for many executions to make it “better” (eg, her vision).

This is textbook narcissism. To a narcissist, the whole world exists only as an extension of the narcissist. It is psychologically challenging and maddening because objectively people exist on their own, but subjectivity to a narcissist is objective to a narcissist. When they “like” someone, it’s becsuse that person is perceived as a useful tool to realize the narcissist’s vision. When someone they like challenges their opinion, that’s psychologically upsetting because to a narcissist someone they like is only an extension of that person—a utility, anothet hand, to get things done. Suddenly that personal extension is like a hand that has turned against the person it belongs to, and the narcissist then feels like the world is out of control. What would you do if you were trying to use your hand to make coffee and instead it started to choke you against your will? That’s how narcissists feel when they think they are being betrayed—and betrayal to them is challenging their demands.

Rosie is too emotional and sympathetic to be a sociopath, but she is absolutely a narcissist. Like Trump, she will dote on any sycophant because that person is “smart” because that person agrees with her and lives to fulfill her vision. Those who are not sycophants are eliminated from her world—no problem. Just cut them out. The wrath only comes when they feel they have been betrayed—a sycophant who finds her voice is asking for hell.

I'm on the Rosie section of the book and all I can say is - HOLY SHIT.

The staff REALLY had bad things to say to her. Mark Gentile (one of the senior people) refused to have any in-person contact with her at one point, after he couldn't take it anymore and finally told her off. She had tons of editors and directors fired & would freak out over shots not being perfect. It all kinda shocked me.. but she saw herself as the one who was going to "save" the view - and elevate it to something better. She added the craft segments and the confetti machines, audience giveaways - but she'd demand people run out an find some exact power ranger (on 10 minutes notice) to give to someone in the audience - and when they did it, she was pissed the color wasn't what she wanted.

I know Rosie is kind of nuts & many of the comments already discuss her personality above, but wow - the Rosie chapters are fucking crazy. She also denies physically intimidating barbara "with her size" - she said it was a big blow up in the makeup room (why barbara didn't defend her to trump - they placated trump on the conference call with Geddie & Trump went on every talk show to say how much he hated Rosie & Barbara did too) and they were sitting in makeup chairs. I would've been pissed at BW too. BW said something like "what a sad pathetic man" toward the tail end of the feud, as an olive branch, but Rosie was having none of it.

Still more to read... but damn.

by Anonymousreply 38604/16/2019

I meant - after the 3-way call between Geddie, Barbara, and Trump, then Trump took the liberty to schedule himself on 15 different tv shows telling the world how rosie is a fat pig (etc) and then ALSO saying Barbara made a mistake hiring her. Barbara denied it, but then the book later says Barbara and Geddie told ABC they wouldn't come back if she was renewed (I think someone else mentioned this). I can't believe Rosie had more power than Barbara at one point. It was Barbara's show. I can't understand how that could happen.

Btw, I thought the year that Rosie had the set redone - it was hideous. All blue. They had a designer do it "so it wouldn't look like Nana's house" but it was just so ugly to me. The whole theme of the rosie chapters is that she always thinks she knows best, and she's telling people with careers at ABC / The View / major talk shows - that they're all wrong - just based on her single show in daytime. And she'd bulldoze them completely.

Rosie/Roseanne both accused their fathers. At least one of them was lying about it.

IF Mr. O'Donnell molested her BEFORE his wife's death it seems strange that it would stop right afterwards. If he had this sickness in him wouldn't he have just kept on doing it? The whole story seems strange. If Ro knew this about her father wouldn't she have reported him to the authorities when she got older to save the neighborhood kids? I don't know what to believe here.

Meghan is unfortunate that her weight is in her stomach, face and upper arms. If she was pear shaped she could get away with it better. I’ve seen 200lb pear shaped women with chiselled faces and visible collar bones. Then they have her at the end of the table where she’s seen from the side and can’t hide behind the table, we get a full view of the tummy and upper body. She was quite pretty when she was thinner a few years ago, with the round face she looks like John McCain in a dime store wig.

McDad has short stumpy legs, she should never wear very high heels because they emphasize how short and stumpy her legs are. Very high heels on short fat women are never EVER flattering.

Her dress size is listed as a 12, no way is that true, she's at least 16-18. That's in the actual dress sizing, not vanity size. There is also no way she weights 137 pounds! More like closer to 175! A 29" waist ,my ass!

Wow, according to the Setoodeh book, Barbara Walters talked Roger Ailes into hiring Elisabeth Hasselbeck, which he didn’t want to do, as a personal favor because Barbara was worried Elisabeth would bash The View in the press. Ailes supposedly broadcast behind the scenes at Fox News that he only hired Elisabeth as a favor. Burrrn.

Meanwhile, Sherri seems pretty wonderful in this book. She is naive but not dumb, pretty assertive, and she says kind things about both Whoopi and Rosie, both of whom helped her. Rosie told her how much all the other women were paid so that Sherri could negotiate a fair contract when they tried to underpay her, and Whoopi did the whole Pretty Woman makeover sponsorship thing and told Sherri to “pay it forward.”

Whoopi also comes across like a good person off camera but, unsurprisingly and true to her onscreen performance, totally uninvested in The View except as a paycheck.

by Anonymousreply 47004/21/2019

I think part of the reason Sherri has been so good on the show, behind the scenes, and so positive about the show since leaving is that frankly she was lucky to get it. That sounds very condescending, but before The View she was another one of those 'original queens of comedy' of the 90s (like Sommore etc.) whose film/TV opportunities weren't really there, and whose opportunities in the mid 00s were drying up as the Apollo nights and BET specials became less frequent.

She's humble, and genuine. And it shows, even with all her stupid comments on the show over the years. She's also a pretty good actress, thinking of projects like 30 Rock and Precious (which most people forget she was in).

I should be getting the pics back tomorrow from Walgreens. You're not allowed to have your phone out in the studio, so I bought one of those disposable cameras. She's not as fat in person. Maybe it'll come across on the pics ... maybe not.

What r469 said is basically how it is. Her shape is part of the issue & Sunny is very thin, sitting next to her. Also, she sits directly sideways to the camera rather than facing forward, so I think it adds even more.

Well, anyway - you'll see tomorrow whatever I got. What surprised me is how 20+ staffers rush on stage for the commercial breaks too. It's weird. After 3 minutes, their makeup didn't change that much for a touch up, but they come right away.

The problem with that she's always right. And she is. As she was about Trump. And Cosby. And the war in Iraq. She's far too smart for the panel of The View. And she wouldn't suck Whoopi's dick. Was she too aggressive or angry for morning television? Sometimes. Whoopi wanted her gone and pushed all the right buttons of disrespect and control. Rosie is also not a great producer of television. She should let others do their jobs. But she's a smart woman and one of the few truthful voices in the world of celebrity. She doesn't have all the money in the world, not by a long shot. But she has fuck you money and she's not afraid to use it. She doesn't stay where she's not wanted. She enjoys crafting and Broadway and getting married a lot too.

Whoopi complains everyday about her job at The View. She's unhappy, uninvested, lazy and bad tempered. On camera. But she won't fucking QUIT. She believes in FUCK YOU money - as in fucking over her employers, her coworkers and the audience, then collecting a BIG paycheck. Nasty bitch.

The book said they do tons of research on which cohosts the audience like & by how much (Elizabeth ranked the lowest, and Barbara was pretty low in her last years). They know how McCain is viewed. I highly doubt it is high.

The other thing is that Whoopi and Rosie both wanted McCain on during their season together. ABC chose Nicole Wallace instead. SE Cupp interviewed and did a "chemistry test" and Rosie just blurted out "no - I can't have another Elizabeth" in the middle of it. Then Rosie saw her backstage and said something nicer to her and asked what kind of job she had done before and SE said "I work for CNN." Rosie replied "So you don't need this job?" and after SE said no, Rosie just walked away from her. At least that's how SE tells the story to the author. The last piece doesn't make that much sense since Meghan definitely doesn't need the job. and they wanted her, but that's how the story goes in the book.

by Anonymousreply 50004/22/2019

R500, I just read that part of the book yesterday. The show ultimately wants ratings. Therefore, even if the viewers hate Meghan, the network will keep her on because of the ratings buzz she generates. Remember the show and network was willing to bring back Rosie even though most of the crew despised and feared her.

by Anonymousreply 50104/22/2019

That is true. 30% of the audience left with Elizabeth, they learned after the fact, so I think perhaps they're afraid of something similar happening with McCain.... even if she rates low, like Elizabeth did.

Another thing I got out of the book is just how clueless the producers are & what a mess it is with all these people they keep hiring behind the scenes. & infighting with people at GMA who wanted the View to be an "extra hour" at one point. I couldn't' even follow all of the names of these people, but wow was it disorganized. For example, they decided the show was "too political" and simultaneously fired Joy (rated highly) and Elizabeth (rated low) along with Bill and some others - and then tanked the show to its lowest year ever (the Jenny / Sherri year) trying to chase ratings based on some misguided attempt...with inexperienced producers (as much as people hate Bill, he kept the thing running). The last 50 pages are a mess of trial and error with everyone from Paula to Raven Symone to Candace Cameron on camera & a bunch of people coming & going off camera. It's amazing the show still exists. They actually thank Trump for it, and they're probably right to an extent. It's daily fodder, with no end.

R504, that's when the funny, classy, sophisticated Meredith was the host.

The book mentioned that Whoopi's main competition for the role of moderator was Gayle King. She would have been great for the show. She's so funny, she has a lot of energy, and she recently proved (during her R Kelly interview) that she can stay calm under pressure. The producers thought that Gayle's buddy Oprah would try to step in and change the show (like Rosie had constantly tried to do), and they didn't want to deal with another control freak. Whoopi scored higher ratings with test audiences, and she did everything the producers asked her to. So they chose Whoopi.

I miss when Whoopi would go on her pro-smoking rants. She'd often openly talk about going home, watching tv with a big bag of Doritos, weed and cigarettes. Barbara even seemed to get a kick out of it. Whoopi and Joy would spar about the smoking ban and smoking in apartments. All traces of it seem to have been wiped from YouTube. In one clip she went on a long tangent and wrapped it up with "I'm gonna smoke my cigarette, because we're all New Yorkers." WTF? It was so entertaining. Meghan has mentioned that her house has a cigar room for people "who still have vices". I'm sure it's her blunt room. When Joy was still living in the Astor Court she complained about her neighbor's smoking and Whoopi sent the neighbor a very high end air purifier. Whoopi was like "I use it at my house and it doesn't smell like smoke does it?" Kiss-ass Elizabeth was like "Oh no Whoopi, your house doesn't smell like smoke." Whoopi was clear on the show that she moved to her house in NJ because she thought they might ban smoking in apartments next. I guess there are more pressing issues in the world at the moment and Whoopi is still getting over pneumonia.

During one of the breaks there was a commercial for some online plus size ladies’ clothing company. Can’t help but think it’s because of Meggy.

Only hope for reprieve is for her to be given her own show. ABC will think they can lure over the Fox News deplorables to watch her show but what will actually happen is her abrasive personality will crash and burn quickly like Megyn Kelly did but at least we will be rid of her. Sorry can't come back to The View, your chair has been filled.

Meghan McCain Sends ‘The View’ Into Chaos: “Why Is Your Mouth Open Like That?”

by Anonymousreply 54804/23/2019

The clip shows how similar Megan and Elizabeth are. Both are screechy and overly emotional and irrational and resort to yelling and baseless accusations when they are challenged.

"You may think that terrorism is funny but I do not!" Is something Elizabeth would say.

by Anonymousreply 54904/23/2019

God help me but I thought Abby came out better there of the two Moron Twins. No screeching, no huffing and puffing. Mooghan is a disgrace, and it seems like Joy and Sunny have given up on debating her, they were both unusually quiet when Whoopi was ripping her a new one.

According to the book, the network wanted to spin off Rosie to her own show, which would be the ROD show version 2.0., to fill the gap that would be left by retiring Oprah. But it didn't work out.

I wonder if Meghan gets along with the crew. Are the tantrums onstage only? Or does she go backstage and berate and threaten people like Rosie did?

The View -- Thread 18

by Anonymousreply 55204/23/2019

I burst out laughing when Meghan loudly exclaimed “Abby and I have brothers in the military!!!” and Abby just fixed her with a look of consternation. She may be dumb but she knew enough to be confused as to where Meghan was going with that and how it was relevant to the conversation.

by Anonymousreply 55304/23/2019

Whoopi explains the prison voting issue and asks for feedback and each lady responds to what Sanders said yet the first thing out of Megan’s mouth when they get to her is “I woke up at 5:30 this morning...”

Me me me me me! Absolutely EVERYTHING is about her.

by Anonymousreply 55404/23/2019

I think MM reacts emotionally and not logically.

That creates the tension, then she feels defensive because the others (in her eyes) are ganging up on her.

Then she loses all ability to be rational and discuss the topic without 'winning', even if that means going off topic.

by Anonymousreply 55504/23/2019

This, once again, showed she cannot respond to a topic like a normal person. I don't think terrorists should be voting from jail, either. If you read the CNN Town Hall thread last night - it seemed like most DLers disagreed with Sanders or didn't even really remark on it for now. Some criticized Harris for her "let's have a conversation about it" line that she repeated. And DL can get extremely cunty & out of control on political issues. (I didn't post in that thread anyway but that was my opinion). She lost her fucking mind - just like she did about some obscure abortion issue that came up, when Sunny clearly explained it just was to make it easier for doctors to decide where the baby should go (the baby that "survived" the abortion).

Ut appears that Moogan's FIL has his legal tits in a wringer.

So THAT is who she means when she says she has relatives working in the WH.

by Anonymousreply 55704/23/2019

Even Abby rolled her eyes at Meghan in the 'people in prison should not vote' segment, when she started yelling at her and Whoopi for laughing (even though they were clearly laughing at something else). How could you possibly stay friends with someone like that? You would constantly be walking on eggshells.

by Anonymousreply 55804/23/2019

Meghan worked herself up to near tears over such garbage. Her ears turned bright red.. She's unhinged.

by Anonymousreply 55904/23/2019

Using the Boston Bomber as the sole example of a prisoner who might get the ability to vote while in jail is such a Fox News "gotcha" stunt and yet Megan--former employee of Fox News--is the one who fell for it. Incredible.

Is it the anniversary of her father's death? Is it the anniversary of his birth or the day he kissed her goodnight when she was seven or the day he took her to the mall to buy a prom dress? She seemed particularly on edge this morning and by bursting into tears at such a non-issue, it's clear that she has other things on her mind.

by Anonymousreply 56004/23/2019

I tweeted to her today and asked if her mother was convicted for stealing from a charity and drugs, would she still say she should never be allowed to vote for the rest of her days. I attached the article about what Cindy did.

Surely this can’t continue for the rest of this season? And presumably next, since I’m assuming Mooghan will be around a while, if only for the headlines. Whoopi, Joy and Sunny should stage a walkout to get Princess fired.

I've never used that "line" cookie.

There is ONE delusional shut in on these threads who is fueled by hate for Megan. But he doesn't really want anything to change, because he has nothing more to do but call her McGunt and CUNT and comment on her size daily. Even on the weekends and when she's on vacay! He's a sad person.

There are other posters and most humans who can't stand Megan and they have some insightful things to say. Everyone can see who she is and most intelligent people understand why she is on The View. She's interesting for a few minutes to categorize and criticize but kind of amusing otherwise. The View loves discord and bad tempered, stupid co-hosts. For the longest time now. They weren't all republicans and some others were fatter.

Still this one poster, who has more than one device to answer and support his own agenda - derives some perverse pleasure & purpose in life by stating the same things over and over, day after day. About Meghan McCain. There's irony in that. Good luck to you R569. Your constant scatalogical comments are the hallmark of a trouble mind. Peace.

by Anonymousreply 57104/23/2019

I find McCain neither amusing nor enjoyable. She is unprofessional in many different ways. She said today as she has said before that women used to have to be agreeable and unargumentative and pleasant and now they don’t, and that is fine to an extent, but what it comes down to with her is narcissism and a lack of respect for others. It’s not that she has differing opinions and stands up for them; that has always been the premise of the show. It’s that she dominates conversations, talks over others and screams at others when they talk over her. She takes up all the air and then complains that she has something to say and never has the time. She complains that she show is biased against her and she is adrift in her political opinions, which is not strictly true. She name drops constantly and of course invokes her McCain pedigree practically daily. Every comment she makes is about herself. Today, the episode opened with a clip and discussion about Bernie Sanders and it rapidly degraded into Meghan McCain screaming her personal beliefs about domestic terrorists while the other women tried to tell her that’s off topic of whether prisoners should be allowed to vote. And she went on because she picked a fight and was determined to get all the women to say that terrorists should be executed, damnit. She is not qualified to do the job she has. She has no self-control—not because she is a Republican, not because she is a woman, not because she is an alcoholic, but because she just is not capable of doing the job she is charged with doing, which involves listening, not hosting the McCain Manifesto Hour.

by Anonymousreply 57204/23/2019

She reprimands the panel, especially Joy... "Let me finish!". Then when the others speak, she jumps in and interrupts, not giving them a chance to speak. I hate that!

by Anonymousreply 57304/23/2019

Today's episode was so frustrating. When Whoopi said that someone who's paid their dues should have their rights restored, Meghan overdid it with the fake outrage. The look on her face resembled that of a horrible soap opera actress acting out a scene where she's just learned of her spouse's death.

by Anonymousreply 57404/23/2019

She looked embarrassing today. She was almost literally out of control. She was at the point of emotional break down it looked like. But that is a typical conservative for you- they are the over-emotional ones who wed themselves so some notion so tightly they cannot see the forest for the trees. They're irrational.

by Anonymousreply 57504/23/2019

Meghan found out today that even Whoopi will go after her.

It was glorious.

by Anonymousreply 57604/23/2019

Whoopi is the most corrupt human being on your daily color TV. She needed a "lawyer" to get her out of that Cosby dilemma. She has promoted the KKK and blackface. Never mind her defense of dog killers, wife beaters, corporal punishment, Michael Jackson, Mel Gibson, Polanski and rape, RAPE.

by Anonymousreply 57904/23/2019

I just watched the clip and it seems that they were all agreeing that people in prison shouldn't vote. I think any thinking American of any party would agree with that. It just goes to show how looney bernie really is and how he would never win an election. He's more dangerous to Dems than Trump.

R580, as Sunny pointed out, in Bernie's state, Vermont, people in prison are allowed to vote. So Bernie has had plenty of time to get used to the idea.

Is Kathy Griffin still persona non grata at The View? If not, they should hire her just to come in on the days following one of TPoA's meltdowns to keep bring up the meltdown to the hosts and to guests like she does here the day after the Rosie/Elisabitch split screen. Hire Kathy to heckle the Princess.

Full disclosure I borrowed this clip from another forum that was discussing TPoA.

I would kill to see Kathy Griffin as a guest host when Mooghan is there. Joy looks exhausted, Sunny looks perma-pissed off, Abby looks like a scared rabbit and Whoopi is so sick she doesn’t care anymore. Mooghan has literally destroyed the people she’s around. She’s like a black hole. Good luck to her Mexican Nazi husband, who I’m sure will end up in an emergency room one day with stab wounds.

The noose is apparently tightening around Megan's Father in Law, Doug Domenech. He is under investigation for ethics violations and could go down, down, down. That can't be fun for Megan and Ben to endure. Will she start to refer to news stories about her corrupt FIL "fake news"?
