The View — P.art 26, Season 26

It was nice to see the gals back at the table!

I loved that Sara said she missed everyone and Joy said "I missed you too." Whether or not it was intended, that was definitely a dig at Meghan whom she said she missed "not at all. zero." when she was on maternity leave.

Sunny has gone nuts. Maybe Nutmeg was a good influence on her. Within 30 seconds of opening her mouth now, she's playing the Race Card. She's boring and annoying. The other day she was bitching that the Queen needed to pay reparations and the US needed to pay reparations too. Thank you, Sunny the Millionaire, the mid-terms on 6 weeks away. How helpful. Ana chimed in noting the Catholic Church had also enslaved and murdered people - black and native Americans. They should pay reparations too. Sunny the Professional Catholic and Pro-Life hypocrite was non-plussed.

Sunny ruins the show for me. Not only are her opinions one note and usually asinine, but her demeanor is totally obnoxious. She talks over others, hogs camera tie, and makes visible faces when she disagrees with someone. There are so many other women who could offer nuanced views and actually be pleasant to the rest of the panel. I really don't understand why she's still there.

Aside from race issues, Sunny's a fucking Conservative Prude. There's a reason she's the only one who still talks to McCain. Birds of a feather......

Sunny was the one who when they were discussing the 10 year old girl who got pregnant in Ohio, just had to point out that she is against ALL forms of abortion, even in cases of rape and incest. Because "her Catholic faith" makes her pro life. The fact that she had to stress this during this particular story was disgusting, and no one had the guts to jump all over her the way they would have if Maga Barbie or Princess of Arizona had said the same thing.

Joy did let her have it last week, when she was whining over Camilla's new title. She was offended that someone who committed adultery should be granted a royal title. Joy laughed and told her to grow up because adultery has been happening in the Royal Family since it began.

by Anonymousreply 28September 18, 2022 12:38 AM

Sunny is a total prude. And not in a “it’s just not for me” way but in a completely judgmental bitch way. It also annoys me that she goes on and on about her Catholic faith when talking about abortion but then never brings it up even once when talking about her supposed support of gay rights. So either she’s a hypocrite or she’s a liar. Likely both.

Last week they were talking about short men who undergo surgery to be taller because studies show they attract more women, make more money, etc. Sunny's response was "I don't understand why short men don't just wear lifts." Another way she's a hypocrite. If there were studies showing black women made less money or were discriminated against because of their hair and someone suggested "I don't understand why they don't just straighten their hair" she would have gone ballistic. But of course it doesn't affect Sunny, so the prejudice here is just fine and these men should just learn to conform.

I watched a little today and Sunny managed to get through almost 2 minutes before playing the race card. Joy was - logically - pointing out that Republicans welcome Cubans because they're fleeing communism and Venezuelans are also fleeing communism. So why aren't the Republicans supporting Venezuelans? Sunny then - of course - had to say Haitians were the most suffering people in the whole wide world but couldn't answer Joy when Joy reminded her the question is communism and the Republicans loathing of it, not race.

Seriously, Sunny appears to be losing it.

So Whoopi made a joke today in a conversation with White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre about Lady Lindsay Graham, and apparently outed him. She said that if he wanted to get married, he'd better do it soon before marriage equality ends.

"Senator Graham said maybe about a month ago, in early August, that he believes, when it comes to marriage, when it comes to abortion, it's for the states to decide, so, Senator Graham, what changed?" Jean-Pierre asked, to which Goldberg responded: "Well, maybe he's getting married? Do it quick, because I know people are fooling around with our marriage rights, wherever you stand."

When The View returned from the break, Goldberg turned to the camera and spoke to the audience.

"I need to make clear that I was doing what I do as a comic. Sometimes I make jokes, and it was a joke, nothing more than that," the outspoken, Oscar-winning actress said. "I just got a whole conversation about people misunderstanding the joke. I mean, okay. I should probably never do this show again, if this is what it's coming to. It was a joke, guys."

Though Goldberg did not specify whom she had a "whole conversation" with about the joke's impact, a source close to the situation tells EW that the follow-up statement was a clarification she wanted to make on her own.

This was an opportune time for Sunny to ask them why they have never had a Black or Latina woman on the show as one of the investors. There's J,Lo, Beyonce, Tyra Banks, Jessica Alba and so many more Black and Latina female entrepreneurs out there, and not once has one of them ever sat in as a guest 'shark' in all the years I've watched the show.

Oh yes - once January rolls around, the Whoopi ass-kissing will begin again. Sara will keep saying "Ghost" is her favorite movie, and try to coax Whoopi into saying "You in trouble girl!" (which Whoopi won't do, so Sara will do). Sunny will bring up her role in 'The Color Purple' and remind everyone she was nominated back then. They'll throw in "Sister Act" and "Sister Act 2". All just to remind everyone that Whoopi is an Oscar winner, and should be nominated again.

Keep in mind, they never ever mention "Burglar" or any of Whoopi's other string of flops.

On yesterday's show, Sara and Sunny got 'into it'. Sara was stating facts about why AA should be removed from colleges (she was reading off her blue index cards, so not sure who did the research for her) , and Sunny wasn't having it. Whoopi chimed in a bit, but she seemed to be impressed with Sara holding her own. Joy and Alyssa - for the most part - stayed out of it and watched these two go at it. In the end, Sunny pursed her lips and glared at Sara. Sara simply wasn't taking it from Sunny - I was never a fan of Sara's until yesterday.

For the record, Sunny keeps saying her son Gabriel is a student at Harvard (which we all know) and that she had to pay tuition out-of-pocket because the family didn't qualify for any financial assistance. (Ummm, she's the co-host of THE VIEW, legal analyst for ABC News and her husband is a prominent NYC orthopedic surgeon....she's really expecting financial assistance from Harvard ?).

What she hasn't said was how much money they donated to Harvard (which she claims she's dead-set against) to get her son admitted to HU in the first place. I'm sure they dropped a hefty sum - and I wish someone at HU would 'leak it' to the press !

I saw that too, R137, and Sara is my favorite because I think she's the only one who actually articulates any kind of nuance about most topics. I've also noticed how frequently Sunny acts like white people's dislike of certain liberal policies or ideas are solely rooted in a dislike of black people. For example, whenever CRT comes up, Sunny insists that white people don't want to teach our history or acknowledge the racism in this country. In reality, white parents just don't want their kids being taught that they're inherently oppressors because they're white. I remember last year that Sunny got into it with Condeleeza Rice when Condeleeza articulated that exact point. In this case, Sunny seems to think any dislike for affirmative action is solely rooted in animus towards black people--and Whoopi said argued something similar about how white folks just don't want black folks at their school. The real issue, though, is that, just like black kids don't want to be discriminated against based on the color of their skin, white kids applying to college don't want to be either.

by Anonymousreply 138November 3, 2022 7:16 PM

I'm also super annoyed by Whoopi's constant interruptions whenever the subject of the Dem's prospects in the midterms come up. Every time someone starts to say that the Democrats are potentially looking at getting slaughtered based on polling, past precedent, etc., she jumps all over them to insist no one should tell anyone what's gonna happen in the election because we don't know what will happen, it's up to us to decide, etc., etc. And of course she's right that no one can predict the future, but that's no reason that they shouldn't be allowed to discuss polling or pundit chatter.

Today Sunny called white suburban women voting for Republicans who support abortion bans like "cockroaches voting for insecticide." Alyssa rightfully called her out on how obnoxious that was and then she and Sara both had to explain the idea of not being a single issue voter. I mean, seriously?

Sunny Hostin is slowly morphing into Revereand Sunny Sharpton on this show, right before our very eyes. Like Sharpton, Sunny's shtick is to play "professional race victim" every day on television. I'm really getting tired of it, as it's growing old and stale.

Again, yesterday she spoke out against "legacy" admissions, and spoke up for "affirmative action" . Sara pointed out she was against both - believing neither is fair. Sarah also tried to squeeze in that she's against 'big donor' admissions, those families who make a generous donation to the school to 'help' their child get into Harvard (she brought up Jared Kushner being one of those who benefited). At that point, Sunny Sharpton 'sucked in her teeth' and 'pursed her lips'. Not a mention if she is for or against 'donations' to get your kid in...

Which reassures me - her kid got in on a BIG donation. I so wish this would leak to the press !

First Sunny denied it, then she said she was repeating a 'joke' which Jon Leguziamo said, then she said she identifies with these white women because "my mother is caucasian' . Huh ? Since when? She has always identified her mother as Latina, which she has always claimed is not caucasian.

If it were McCain or Hassleback who said something like this about Black women or Latinas - there's no way in Hell that the show would allow them to 'walk it back' the way they let Sunny did yesterday. They would've made them 'own it'.

So apparently Kathy Griffin was offered 1.4 million to join the panel sometime around when Elizabeth first joined.

Kathy probably doesn't have the stamina now or the voice which is still faint. Plus, she's openly called out Hollywood for turning their back on her...so which guests could she interview without it being awkward? None.

Lisa and Debbie came from socially conservative families but they were not politically conservative. Elisabeth was the first political conservative on the panel and the show has decided ever since that the fifth seat should also be the conservative one. What's never made sense to me, though, is why the conservative one also has to be the young one. Elisabeth and Meghan's immaturity was more of a turn off than their political views.

Really good point R233. I never noticed that all of their conservative hosts have been on the young side. Even Faux News skews young with most of their female talent. Maybe conservative messaging tests better with focus groups when it comes from a young, attractive women?

When Lisa and Debbie were on, the show was not politically-centric as it is today (that didn't happen until 2006 when Rosie took over). Most of their topics were on social issues - not necessarily political - and Debbie and Lisa lent a very conservative viewpoint. When Elisabeth was hired, there was still less talk about politics and the emphasis was on social issues. I remember a few issues they talked about repeatedly those early seasons were 'living together before marriage', 'premarital sex' and 'birth control'.

Once Rosie came in, the show and it's focus changed to political issues - and hit the jackpot in the ratings. Aside from Elisabeth and Meghan, other social / political conservative hosts on the show since 2006 included Jedediah, Born-Again-Christian Paula Farris, and Mormon Abby Huntsman.

Hasslebeck was grating on the ears. That voice. Aye-Yai-Yai. Add to the nails on a chalkboard voice the propensity to be a flipped-out Jesus freak, and on top of that mound of shit, a warped sense of political reality, so what are you left with? 10 years of grief. I went through very long periods of not watching. Very long.

I like the makeup of the current squad. Well, except for Sunshine. She can leave at any time. If production gets a whiff of how unpopular she is becoming we may be in luck.

Lisa Ling is a legitimate reporter who had very little tolerance for some of the nonsense that was on the show. She was not right for the show. The whole political crap was all on Rosie.

by Anonymousreply 238November 21, 2022 1:14 AM

In fairness, I think Rosie was exactly what the US needed. We talk all the time about how women are given a platform and how lesbians might contribute a lot to politics because of their (general) no-BS attitude/let's get things accomplished outlook.

Rosie had been "The Queen of Nice" (remember that?) on her own show for years and I think had moved into a new phase of wanting to say things that mattered. We got a taste of it when she ambushed Tom Sellick about gun control during her old show. Rosie feels strongly about making America smarter and safer. Less guns, less rhetoric and BS, and better treatment towards troops - those are things that quickly came through about her. Calling out Trump for being a misogynistic asshole years before the world learned it the hard way was MASTERFUL. I really, really, really wish Rosie had stayed on The View. She was willing to talk real talk on air, and granted, she's no genius and no angel, but she made good solid points about American values and social problems. The problem was, Barbara wanted total control, the producers wanted to play up the arguing between Rosie and Elizabeth and it all just blew up and hurt Rosie and the show frankly. Whoopi was an easy replacement because she had no desire to really be there or really talk about anything.

Honestly, not to overstate The View's importance, but had Rosie weathered a few more years on the show, I wonder if we'd be where we are now. Americans were watching, listening, thinking, debating..."big fat mean old lesbian Rosie" disappearing off tv sets only fueled the idea that she was "just a loudmouth" and didn't belong on tv. That the show kept whiny and young and skinny Christian Elizabeth on the show - even though she was pointless and said nothing - and was happy to let Rosie twist in the wind says a lot.

I get it's supposed to be about different points of view...but look where giving all viewpoints a platform has lead us. Give the morons equal time in the limelight as intelligent thinkers and people on the outskirts who understand what oppression really is (gay people) and the morons will only gain followers.

It's beyond sad what the show is now. McCain was horrendous and stripped the show of any dignity it had left. She was just a brat and made it unwatchable. My sympathies go to Joy, who was generally polite and funny and watchable, because she's suffered through all these cast changes and...for what? The paycheck?

She was Filarski on Survivor but was always Hasselbeck on The View.

And I said she was hired because they wanted babies being born.

Ling was fired according to that recent book about the show.

I like Alyssa. When the topics get lighter, she laughs and joins in.....unlike the humorless, pouty screecher before her. Alyssa fits in much better. She does try to be respectful, even with her opposing opinions. She could be wary, too...not wanting to be ganged up.

Nicolle Wallace said they fired her because she didn't know anything about the Kardashians. Alyssa's not bad but I would think she would already incur Sunny's wrath because she is a paid CNN contributor, commenting on politics and nobody gives a shit about Sunny's politics.

I only noticed her mention her in-laws once this week in the context of shaming people who don't want to get boosted because Manny's parents died of Covid. It truly made no sense, though, because her in-laws died before the vaccines were available and if they were alive now and boosted themselves then other people's reluctance to get boosted would be moot for them.

So glad they had a table filled with food today, and Whoopi couldn't hide her facial expressions on some of the food (like cranberry-stuffed meatballs). She did perk up at the mac-n-cheese balls, though. Lucky for us none of them ate on camera this morning - nothing more gross than when Whoopi stuffs her mouth and tries to talk to the camera at the same time.

Yesterday, someone dressed Sunny up in an astronaut's suit. Today she looked like she was at a wake.

Whoopi Goldberg paused midsentence during her opening remarks on Wednesday morning's episode of "The View," in which she was addressing the latest mass shooting in America, committed Tuesday night in Chesapeake, Virginia. Why? Because she was distracted by co-host Joy Behar loudly popping a Tic-Tac.

The show is so much better now. I cannot believe the producers kept Megan for so long. She made it unwatchable.

I am glad they cover news and public policy too. What was the reason to prevent this? Too keep woman from current political and news events. How sexist is this?

It is better now. Need better guests to discuss serious issues.

Whoopi and Patti were kinda cute together. Two old broads who have been through it in showbiz but are still there.

The show is still very messy, from ill-advised segments, to Sunny's dog whistle race-bait rambling, to Whoopi being entirely unable to read the teleprompter even though she's almost 20 years into doing this job every day... but the mess has kept it going. You can tell the producers really tried to make Me-Again work because the potential for drama was strong, but she was too bad at being on television. It doesn't matter what side you're on, if you're screeching and throwing tantrums and interrupting your co-hosts every day and talking about grief? The people at home will not want to watch you. I can see why the new republican chick is playing it safe.

Say what you will about MeAgain, but ratings skyrocketed during her tenure, propelling the show to #1 in daytime ratings. It has slipped since she left at the end of 2020-21.

I don't miss Moo-ghan. I may not like Sunny, but no one is as bad as the screeching pouter. Maybe on occasion, major drama may make give the show some spark, but it happened too often with McCain. I don't want to see big fighting and screaming all the time.

Today, they repeated the show from October with the cast of "Till" - right before it opened in wide release. The cast of hosts are so giddy - kissing Whoopi's ass and throwing "Oscar nominations" into the conversation. Of course, the movie opened and flopped big time at the box office - and since this episode, they never mentioned "Till" again. I guess everyone got the memo not to piss Whoopi off by ever mentioning this bomb.

by Anonymousreply 270November 24, 2022 4:23 PM

If McCain was a POC, and still behaved the same on the show - would people accuse her of throwing a tantrum, screeching, etc. ? Of course not. Everyone would be called 'racist' for suggesting that if she were black or brown. She would be considered 'voicing her opinion', and that would be that.
