about Roman Polanski being arrested this weekend for that decades-old “sex with a minor” conviction, but after watching the ladies of “The View” argue over the issue this morning, I felt compelled to write more. For starters, in the clip above, Whoopi Goldberg, who I never expected to be a rape apologist, coins a term I’ve never heard before — “rape-rape.” Apparently “rape-rape” is NOT when you drug a 13-year-old girl with alcohol and a Quaalude and then have anal sex with her. That’s something else that’s, apparently, not as bad. WTF? Keep reading »
I wasn’t so interested in watching the first episode of Jay Leno’s new prime-time show last night, until I heard that Kanye West
was appearing, to talk about the Taylor Swift Debacle of 2009
. And I gotta say, after a lame apology on his website yesterday, Kanye seemed really sincere, at least partly because Jay took a pot shot and asked Kanye what his mom would say. After a long pause, and maybe a moment of almost crying, Kanye said, “I deal with hurt. So many celebrities, they never take the time off and I’ve never the taken the time off—it’s music after music and tour after tour. And I’m just ashamed that my hurt caused someone else’s hurt. I don’t try to justify it, because I was in the wrong. But I need to, after this, take some time off and analyze how I’m gonna make it through the rest of my life.”
Then this morning, Taylor Swift appeared on “The View.” See her after the jump. Keep reading »
As if having Meghan McCain and La Toya Jackson co-host “The View” during Elisabeth Hasselbeck‘s absence weren’t enough, Kate Gosselin will join Barbara, Sherri, Joy, and Whoopi at the Hot Topics table Sept. 14 and 15. While a little controversy never hurts (and usually helps), we can’t imagine what the reality star will bring to the table. We’re betting she’ll use it as another opportunity to convince the American people that we should be on her side. [The View] Keep reading »
Who else is sad that Elisabeth Hasselbeck is taking the next few months off from “The View” for maternity leave? (She had her third child this month.) I am, mainly because Lizzie helps instigate some of the show’s most entertaining brawls, and it wouldn’t be fair to expect Sherri Shepherd to up the crazy in her absence. Thank goodness “View” producers have hired Meghan McCain to cover for Hasselbeck. She’s going to do a three-day guest spot starting September 9. Also on board is former Fox News anchor E.D. Hill, who called Barack and Michelle Obama’s infamous fist bump a “terrorist fist jab.” Wait, should Hasselbeck be worried that “The View” might find a permanent replacement?

Sherri Shepherd has been working toward a swimsuit body since May, which included getting her first Brazilian, and today she strutted her stuff on live TV. Besides working with a nutritionist, a trainer, and an endocrinologist, Sherri tried on more than 300 suits until she found the one she wore. Personally, I like the one she’s wearing in this week’s People better, but I don’t think I could ever go on TV in a swimsuit, so who am I to judge her style choices. And is it just me, or does it look like she’s wearing pantyhose, the way the majorettes did in high school? Keep reading »
Brave, brave Sheri Shepherd shows us how hilarious a bikini wax can truly be. Not only do you feel her pain, but you feel so wrong for laughing at it. First of all, I’m surprised she was not told in advance, or even worse that she didn’t ask what kind of wax she was getting. It only adds to the tragic situation. I’d say it’s a nice break from the sporadic morning cat fights on “The View.” Cringe, laugh, cry, and enjoy. Keep reading »
Barbara Walters is having a very educational week. Sexually, we mean. Last week Margaret Cho visited “The View” and gave Barbara a lesson on the G-spot. Then, over the weekend, Barbara saw “Bruno” and learned more than she cared to about anal and giving oral sex. I saw “Bruno” this weekend as well and was shocked to see a man in his, I swear, 90′s, sitting front row and center. I was concerned he would have a heart attack. Anyhoo, check out Babs’ disgust in the clip above. [via Jezebel] Keep reading »
Oh, joy! Margaret Cho visited “The View” this morning and dished all about how she cannot have an orgasm from intercourse, so she hightailed it to her doctor’s office to get a bead of collagen injected into her G-spot.
The G-spot shot didn’t work at all, unforch. But I’ll give you one guess as to what still does make Cho come! (Even pregnant and prudish Elisabeth Hasselbeck cracks a smile.) [via Jezebel] Keep reading »
Lauren Conrad was on “The View” this morning to promote her “novel,” L.A. Candy (we’re going to a “reading” tonight!). The interview was pretty awkward and the ladies spent about, oh, six seconds discussing the book, after they peppered L.C. with questions about Heidi and Spencer. The greatest revelation? You know that little “apology” Spencer delivered to Lauren, over the phone, in order to get her to come to the wedding? Never happened. See the clip above… Keep reading »
On yesterday’s episode of “The View,” Elisabeth Hasselbeck responded to the Playboy.com article written by Guy Cimbalo that listed her as one of the conservative women he’d like to “hate f**k.” I don’t blame her for being offended — I would pitch a fit if, say, Rush Limbaugh said he wanted to hate f**k me — but her annoyance that the National Organization for Women didn’t immediately respond (in fact, they didn’t know) is misplaced. After all, they have bigger fish to fry right now, like the murder of doctors like Dr. George Tiller.
