When they return Monday after Thanksgiving weekend...

Will Sunny cheer us up with talk about her dead in-laws not being at this year's family gathering ?

Will Sarah tell us about her panic attacks and depression she suffered with her family, and her 'gay brother' coming to her rescue ?

Will Whoopi tell us 'she don't like Turkey' but filled up on mac-n-cheese, and it was fun to see her great-great-great grandbaby eating pumpkin pie for the first time ?

Will Anna tell us she and Al went to Palm Springs for the weekend to get away from the Miami tourists and they didn't celebrate anything ?

Will Alyssa tell us again she had dinner with her in-laws because she's estranged from her Trump loving family, and she likes her in-laws better than her family ?

Sunny was hard on Will Smith after the slap but has softened her stance considerably. She didn’t even use her favorite word-“accountability.” I guess it’s because she’s pushing his slave movie Emancipation and that takes precedence now over “accountability.”

Later she kept on pushing The Best Man Holiday as a great Christmas movie after saying she’d never seen Love, Actually and didn’t plan to. Maybe because Love, Actually has mostly white people in it? And yeah, The Best Man Holiday has a mostly black cast. She’s so fucking transparent.

And that revisit of the Will Smith bullshit was so derivative. Everyone in Hollywood has heard what sexual freaks Will and Jada are. The real reason Will jumped on the stage and slapped Rock was because he thought Rock was outing his Bi-butch wife by saying she could do the remake of GI Jane. Has he watched the lesbian frolic that is The Equalizer, Season 2 Episode 10? The only thing missing from watching Dana and Jada butch it up is the clit-lickery and the pussy grinding.

Smith hit Rock because he was too close to outing the Fresh Power Bottom of Bel-Air.

Whoopi was wise for once by not stepping into the Will Smith discussion. She’s well aware her support of him after the slap didn’t do her any favors.

Sunny pushing her agenda over her so-called “accountability” beliefs is disgusting. She said yesterday she could be a fair and impartial juror. I highly doubt she’s capable of that.

Isn't it funny how they all said they are able to separate 'the artist from the art' and they will now go out and see Will Smith movies, after he demonstrated physical violence against another actor for the world to see. Joy and Sunny have now forgiven him - and urge people to go see this 'important' movie. ("Till" was an important movie, too, and bombed at the box-office).

Yet, Mel Gibson said some horrible things - in private while drunk - which leaked out 15 years ago and apologized for it repeatedly. Yet in different conversations over time for the past 15 seasons both Joy and Sunny have said repeatedly they could 'never forgive him' and 'will never see one of his movies ever again'. Talk about hypocrisy. I guess if he was a POC he'd be easier to forgive ? (Kudos to Whoopi for always sticking up for Mel Gibson, and saying all along 'the separation of artist and art').

[R47] She reminds me of Abby Huntsman. She's a likable republican with a lot of 'insider' information. But like Huntsman, she's obviously not appreciated in any capacity. No matter how she tries, they either steamroll over her (Sunny and Anna) or fight with her (Sunny). Honestly, I don't think she needs this - she does the same thing on CNN and they appreciate her more.

So it wouldn't surprise me if she's negotiating with CNN now to give her more airtime (especially as they revamp the network schedule) and says 'see ya' to The View. She doesn't need them.

Does she appear on CNN every night? If not, then I would disagree with you insofar as I think being on "The View" is a much more high profile gig than being on CNN. On "The View" she's one of the five main "stars" of a long-running, often-controversial and very successful daytime talk show on a major broadcast network (ABC) vs. being just another political commentator who appears for a 10-minute segment on Anderson Cooper 360 and then disappears. Just my opinion.

With her hosting experience on "The View", she could be angling for her own show on CNN ( they have to fill quite a few holes in the schedule) and be a singluar host, and not one at a table of five where she encounters friction from her coworkers, and is shut down before she finishes a sentence. She could even be filling a seat on their new 'morning show' with Don Lemon. That trio doesn't seem to be bringing in ratings. There's plenty of opportunity for her at CNN - moreso than at ABC on 'The View'.

Sunny was all choked up and was rather low-key today - though she did remind us she is the mother of a 20 year old, strapping 6' sexy hunk of a black son and this is what she worries about, every day. Whoopi was on fire, as was Anna Navarro. Sarah Haines did her white, Iowa farm girl 'act' of concern and outrage, and AFG didn't seem to invested in this at all.

They did have Tyre's mother and step father on, along with their lawyer. When the step father was talking, it looked like the mother was falling asleep sitting up. It was a bit disturbing.

Whoopi was on fire again today over the Repug idiots whining about the Pelosi assault.

So far, no mention of the 'Oscar Controversy' over Andrea's nomination. You all know damn well if Whoopi didn't have a horse in this race this year, she'd be talking about this every day.

Something bugging me lately is how overbearing Sara Haines is becoming. She once was a calm panel member. Recently though she interrupts everyone and has started talking over the others. Those times when everyone talks at the same time are becoming unbearable and much more frequent. Sara, shut up, ok?

She kissed the asses of Sunny and Whoopi while she was on - throwing kudos to Whoopi for the movie "Till" (and how important it was to see this movie during Black History Month). Whoopi just nodded her head knowingly, as though she was sitting shiva and someone mentioned how wonderful the dead person was.

As for Eboni K Smith - Sunny met her match in someone filled with self-importance.

She said something along the lines of, "My best friend told me years ago, when you think you're not qualified for something, put your white man's pants on, and just do it! There are a lot of white men who are not qualified for something and they still get the jobs ...some even become President."

Can you imagine if a white male cohost said "My best friend told me years ago, when you want a job that you're not qualified for, put your Latina tight two-sizes too small dress on and just do it !

I think part of the problem with booking guests the past few years (especially with COVID) is the fact that everyone has become 'too sensitive' - the hosts and the viewers.

I doubt very much if Joan Rivers was alive today, she'd be getting many bookings on the show as she did in the 00s and early 10s. She was a controversial comic who made controversial jokes, and she would offend too many viewers today. Same thing with many other guests - especially those with opposing commentary whom Walters enjoyed booking on the show - they would be too offensive to the hosts (maybe not Joy and Whoopi) and viewers would find fault with them booking them on the show. Now they have to be more passive and sensitive to the issues of today (any wonder why McCain was booted off and replaced by Milquetoast Alyssa Farrah Griffin ?)

So now they have to play it safe - with inoffensive comics (except if they're black: Sunny has their back) and boring celebs like Jamie Lee Curtis, Viola Davis and Chastain, who are there to promote 'girl power'.

I have heard this so often for the past decade and I wonder what other white men think about this 'wisdom.' I'm a very self-conscious gay white man and I've had two adult jobs, one from 1997-2008 and the other from 2008-present, and the primary reason I don't change jobs is that I have never had the nerve to apply for a job I am not 120 percent qualified to do, because it would make me feel like a fraud.

I have actually contemplated doing it *solely* because I always hear people say this—that white men do this habitually and succeed at it—but I don't have the nerve to present myself as more experienced than I am demonstrably.

Likewise, I have a 30-year-old coworker, a white guy originally from Indiana who has an inferiority complex, and he desperately wants a new job but he won't apply for any job he'a not 100 percent confident he is qualified to do.

Meanwhile, I have worked with a bunch of women who've landed lucrative new jobs that they were definitely not experienced enough to qualify for on paper but certainly are competent enough to do. One young black woman I worked with who is very smart was treated terribly unfairly by her supervisor at my job and diminished to the point she gave up presenting herself as professional and became a part-time zumba instructor, and then she landed herself a role as an associate vice president straight from an admin job. She certainly didn't pass up any opportunity to get ahead or to take a job she wasn't technically qualified for.

I look up to people who have that kind of nerve and have argued with myself about it, because if I were to do it, I'd feel like a fraud, but when I see others do it, I admire them. And I really do not see white men doing it as often as women. However, I live in Washington, D.C. and maybe that's a local thing.

But given that this is a thread on The View, that show has a long history of hiring cohosts who are not really qualified to do their hosting jobs, and we see them either sink or swim on live TV—but every single woman we've seen has taken the chance. There's no shortage of ambitious women who will shoot for the stars today.

It is absolutely true that only men get jobs they are not qualified for and do not deserve.

At one point, the south did give free black people '20 acres and a mule' (the mule to help plow the land they were given) as a reparation. Apparently, Whoopie's ancestors did receive this in Florida.

Whoopi was missing today (Jury Duty) but the show went on without her, and the guest was comedienne / late night talk show host Samantha Bee.

She asked Bee (as though she's in charge of late night programming) why there aren't more women with late night talk shows ?

Gee Sunny, you sit across from Whoopi every damn day. ASK HER why women hosted late-night talk shows fail - she had a notorious flop on late night (called "Whoopi") about thirty years ago. It was absolutely awful and didn't last too long. So she's the one you should be asking - "Whoopi, why did your late night show fail so miserably in the early 90s ?"

The guest who was scheduled (Ron Klain) wasn't there, so they subbed him for Gail Simmons, one of the judges on the reality show 'Top Chef' which is celebrating 20 seasons. Since the upcoming season was filmed in London, she decided to present them with a 'delicious British lunch' of fish n' chips, and other foods (including a cake for dessert).

The panel (Joy, Sara, Anna, Sunny, Alyssa) all grunted that British food was horrible, to which Simmons (a Canadian) snapped back that it wasn't. Sunny piped up and said she lived in London for a while, and most of the food is horrible - though, maybe not all. What a way to start a lunch!

So the camera pans on the plates of fish-n-chips put in front of the hosts, and I believe it was Sara who chimed in with 'This looks so greasy' (and it did). Simmons then told them to douse their 'chips' with malted vinegar from a spray bottle, and they looked horrified (actually, this is how many people - including me - eat fries in New England). Sunny took a bit of the fried fish and looked like she was going to throw up - then she said, "It needs hot sauce" to which some of the others agreed.

Not one person at the table said how delicious the food was ! Joy looked like she was going to choke, and the others were moving it around with their forks. I think Sara had a few bites of the fries. Simmons looked quite defeated after trying to coax them into eating, and the cake was never served or mentioned. At the end, when Joy was closing the segment, she was staring into the camera and reading off the cue cards. Someone must've scribbled 'This was delicious' because she said it at the end in a very robotic way - you can tell she wasn't saying this on her own.

I doubt Simmons will be back.

I dread visiting England, if only for the fact that I'll need to eventually eat something while there to remain alive. The baked goods are often good, and the brews are great, but the idea of existing on scones and ale seems wrong. The carbs alone would kill.

The food looked cold and greasy, and she used a spray bottle for the vinegar. 🤢🤢🤮

Her reaction when they asked her if she is also a Canadian citizen was odd.

by Anonymousreply 226March 5, 2023 2:16 AM

Well, you have to swear that you reject your past foreign citizenship. Canada does not recognize this, and she effectively has dual citizenship. That why the odd reaction.

A producer was telling her in her earpiece to say it "was delicious"

R228 I thought that, too - but then it looked like she was reading it off the teleprompter.

I'm willing to bet all that food went into the trash and each host spit it all out when the cameras weren't rolling. It looked disgusting, and by the look on each woman's face - no one wanted to touch it. One of the worst food segments in their 26 seasons.

R227 She did give an odd look. So couldn't she just say she had 'dual citizenship' ? Why was she skirting the issue ? (I know you don't know her personally - I'm just trying to make sense of that whole segment! Haha!)

Joy would have had fun with a spotted dick.

I've realized when an election year is not happening, this show just limps along.

Yesterday, they talked about Tucker's take on the J6 footage, and then went into a brief mention of the girls in Iran poisoned from the food they've been served in school. They squeezed that into a minute or less of Hot Topics, when it should have had a longer discussion. But no - they had to cut to commercial and make way for a new segment called 'View and A' in which they give advice to viewer's inane personal questions. The show has now reached a level of ridiculousness.

Day after the Oscars and, as expected...

Within the opening minutes Whoopi mentions 'Till' and 'The Woman King' - 2 movies which were ignored by the Oscar voters, but she reminded the audience that they are worth going to see.

Jump to Alyssa Farrah Griffin, and she applauds Brendan Fraser's win, and says 'The Whale' was one of the best movies of the year - OOOPS ! as well as "Till". (I guess the producers had to whisper that in her ear to placate Whoopi).

Sunny and Whoopi paid tribute to Angela Bassett and Viola Davis - the former who lost the Oscar to the white woman (JLC) and the latter who wasn't even nominated (though Sunny felt she should have won). Barely a mention of THE WINNER - their friend and frequent guest - JLC.

Later on they had a conversation about the Dems lack of support for VP Kamala Harris, and why the Dems don't see her as Presidential material. AFG pointed out the fact the she hasn't done much in her role as VP - nothing stands out (and she's right).

Sunny pulled the race card, of course.

Niether Whoopi nor Sunny mentioned Angela Bassett not applauding or standing up for winner JLC. If it was the opposite way around, Sunny would've pursed her lips and refer to JLC as being racist for Bassett's win.

r233, Kimmel mentioned both movies during his open last night.

Remember ABC=Disney=Kimmel.

Lots of nested ads during the Oscar's broadcast.

by Anonymousreply 235March 13, 2023 6:53 PM

Yes, Kimmel mentioned both - and Whoopi thanked him in the first 30 seconds ! My God, Whoopi - save it for the end of the conversation and give the winners their dues up front, not the losers. Geez. And AFG had to shove in that her favorite movie was 'The Whale' and of course, 'Till'. Would she have said that if 'Till' had not been Whoopi's 10 year project ?

No comma needed.

No, it is not needed, but it is there, and I chose it to be there. Enough commas for you, r238.

If you pause at some place, insert a comma to mark the pause.

Everyone's non-favorite homosessual Billy Porter was a guest on the show today....again.

This time around he was there to promote the album he's dropping the end of the week, the first single off the album, and the tour he's embarking on soon to promote the album. Because, really - who doesn't want to see him in concert ?

He queened it up for the ladies, and they hung on every word he said as though he was the second coming of Jesus. Not sure why they all adore him so much.

Porter was followed by Daymond John - the African American shark on 'Shark Tank' and one of the show's exec producers.

Again, Sunny had the opportunity to ask him why there aren't more black sharks on the show - or Latinx sharks. He should have the answers, as he's an exec producer.

Better yet, Sunny had the opportunity to ask him why they never have any African American women as sharks on the show - ever. She complains about the disadvantages African American and Latinx people have in this world (especially in businesses) so isn't she curious as to why he's the only regular shark on the show who is a POC ?

Sunny, you disappoint me.

Yesterday, Zach Braff (who has not aged well at 47 - I thought he was about 60) was a guest on the show plugging his new movie he directed ('Good People'). Once he sat down, he praised Whoopi Goldberg and said she should've gotten an Oscar for 'The Color Purple' - and really, it's not too late for the Academy to correct this and give her the Oscar for the movie that's nearly 40 years old. Whoopi means everything to him and his career.

Whoopi just smiled and squinted, enjoying all the attention she was getting. She didn't scowl and look dis-interested like she usually does when the topic of conversation doesn't include her.

I swear - these guests are told they must praise Whoopi as soon as the sit their ass down, if they want any promotion for the shit they're peddling on the show. It's waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too obvious now.
