Barack Obama To Go On “The View”

Set your DVRs, folks. Barack Obama is sitting down with the ladies of “The View” on Thursday. This is a big deal because (a) no sitting president has ever gone on a daytime talk show before and (b) the dude is hoping that the appearance will bring his approval ratings back from the dead. So what will happen on the show? We have no idea. But here’s what we’re hoping for. Keep reading »

According To Whoopi Goldberg, Mel Gibson Isn’t “Racist Racist”


Newsflash! Whoopi Goldberg, a black woman, wants to assure you that she knows Mel Gibson and despite what the actor allegedly says on those tapes released this week, he is not a racist. Mel Gibson has been inside Whoopi’s house and hung out with her daughter and since they are both black, his deigning them with his presence means he is so not a racist. Essentially, that is what Goldberg argued during “The View”‘s Hot Topics segment yesterday, when the gals were discussing Mel’s screaming rant at ex Oksana Grigorieva, in which he told her that if she were raped by a pack of n***ers it would be her fault. Whoopi doesn’t approve of Gibson’s language, of course — she goes as far as to call him boneheaded! — but his use of the n-word, in her opinion, does not make him a racist. Keep reading »

Perez Hilton Losing Advertisers Over Miley Cyrus Brouhaha

Perez Hilton is furiously trying to backpedal and say it was fine for him to post an up-skirt photo of 17-year-old Miley Cyrus because she was wearing panties — but ABC is not having it. The station has pulled a rotating banner ad for “The View” from Perez’s blog. A source told MSNBC’s The Scoop blog, “It has to do with the morality of the issue. Miley is a minor, period. There are ethics involved in running an ad on a site that potentially violated the rights of a minor and that is what the conversation is about about a network level.” Will other advertisers follow ABC’s lead? Should they? [MSNBC] Keep reading »

Elisabeth Hasselbeck’s Comments About Erin Andrews Made Elisabeth Hasselbeck Cry


This morning on “The View,” Elisabeth Hasselbeck got all choked up when she told her fellow co-hosts that she felt horrible about “hurting Erin Andrews‘ feelings.” As I told you this morning, on yesterday’s show, Hasselbeck made a rather inappropriate comment about how Andrews stalker could have avoided jail time if he’d just waited to see her scantily clad on “Dancing with the Stars.” Hasselbeck got reamed for the comment and had to go home and explain to her daughter the mistake she made. Now, in all fairness, Hasselbeck does seem genuinely sorry and people do say stupid things, but you gotta wonder if there’s a bit of Elisabeth that believes dressing a certain way encourages predatory behavior. Anyway, Andrews hasn’t said whether she accepts Hasselbeck’s apology, but she did tell People, “It was a slap in the face to victims of stalking and sexual predators. As a mother and a woman, I’m disappointed she went there.” [People] Keep reading »

Nudity And Sex In Art Still Cause A Stir

Even though artists have been paying homage to the human form since the beginning, nudity and sex in art still cause a major commotion. Two works of art — one newish and one really old — are getting a lot of attention lately and making some people a little uncomfortable.

On “The View,” Barbara Walters described her trip to see one of Marina Abramovic‘s performance art pieces at MoMA over the weekend. The gist of it is that two people, sometimes male, sometimes female, stand in the nude facing one another. Patrons can walk through the two individuals if they’d like, and Barbara described her trouble getting past them without touching something in the video above, acknowledging that one of the men was more endowed than the other.
