Joy Behar To Judge The 2011 Miss America Pageant

Color me shocked: Joy Behar, the one co-host of “The View” who makes any damn sense, will be judging the 2011 Miss America pageant. Now, if the qualities needed to rate women in bikinis include not being a misogynist and a prescription pill addict, Joy Behar is a vast improvement over last year’s judge, Rush

Colbert Tells “The View” To Leave “Papa Bear” Alone

The women of “The View” definitely learned one thing from Stephen Colbert’s visit yesterday: Don’t mess with Papa Bear. That’s Colbert’s nickname for Bill O’Reilly. In a show of solidarity with O’Reilly, Colbert pretended to walk off the set of “The View” yesterday during his segment. Colbert’s gesture was in reference to O’Reilly’s controversial

Levi Johnston Says He’s Qualified To Run For Mayor Of Wasilla

Oh, Levi Johnston. The ladies of “The View” took him to task yesterday morning over his plan to run for mayor. When they asked him about his qualifications, his response was, “Qualifications for mayor? There really are none. You’ve got to live in city limits for one year. You don’t need a high school…

Why Would Anyone Watch A Male Spin-Off Of “The View”?

Rumor has it Barbara Walters is in talks to start a spin-off of “The View” aimed towards men, starring a cast of both men and women. It hopes to air during the time slot soon-to-be vacated by Oprah. The D-list talent rounded up so far includes Bryant Gumbel as moderator; comedian Alec Mapa, who played…

Jake Pavelka Swears He’s Not Gay On “The View”

Perhaps this is small potatoes compared to the allegations that Whoopi Goldberg slapped White House party crasher Michaele Salahi on yesterday’s episode. But Jake Pavelka’s appearance on “The View” on Tuesday was pretty interesting. Now, I don’t like it when someone is publicly questioned about their sexuality. But in this case, Jake did bring…

President Obama Visits “The View” To Talk The Economy, Jobs, Race, And Snooki

“I don’t know who Snooki is.”

Wait, I voted for this man?

When President Barack Obama visited “The View” this morning, people living in red states and blue states alike crowded around the TV for the big event. In between cute anecdotes about Sasha and Malia and softball questions about Lindsay…

Quotable: Barack Obama Wasn’t Invited To Chelsea Clinton’s Wedding

“I was not invited to the wedding because I think Hillary and Bill, properly, want to keep this thing for Chelsea and her soon-to-be husband. You don’t want two presidents at one wedding! All the secret service, guests going through [metal detectors], all the gifts being torn apart.”
Barack Obama tells the ladies of “The

Elisabeth Hasselbeck Knows What Turns Older Women Gay

After Whoopi Goldberg defended Mel Gibson (after also defending Roman Polanski and Michael Vick, amongst others), I found myself thinking, Hell hath frozen over — Elisabeth Hasselbeck is no longer the biggest ding-a-ling on “The View.” Whoopi still offends me more, on principle, perhaps because I expect a little more out of the woma…

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…

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…

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 Scoo…

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…

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.

Justin Bieber Wants Barbara Walters

How is it that “cougar” has become such normal terminology, and meanwhile there’s no compact way to describe a younger dude who likes his women on the mature side? Well, whatever that word may be, Justin Bieber sure seems to be one. When he appeared on “The View” yesterday, he was asked, “What…

“Jersey Shore” And “The View” Talk Condoms And Hot Tubs

Someone said the word “condom” in Elisabeth Hasselbeck’s presence and her head did not explode! (We cannot speak for Sherri Shepherd, though.) Thank you, Joy Behar, for asking tough questions of the “Jersey Shore” cast when they visited “The View.”

P.S. I apologize for any painful mental images that may have…

Why Is Sherri Shepherd Moaning? And On All Fours?

This morning, I was minding my own business, you know, workin’. I had “The View” on as background noise, when, all of the sudden, I heard some rather … amorous moaning and groaning. When I looked up, I saw Sherri Shepherd crouched on all fours and for a second, I was really, really not…

Whoopi Goldberg Doesn’t Like Rape Jokes

Sometimes it’s not what is said that’s funny but the reaction to what is said that brings on the LOLs. Take for example the subtle interaction between actress Sofia Vergara, from the new comedy “Modern Family,” and Whoopi Goldberg on today’s episode of “The View.” When the ladies mention that very young-looking Vergara ha…

Elisabeth Hasselbeck’s Nip Pic Isn’t What You Think

Clearly, “The View” host Elisabeth Hasselbeck never saw the episode of “Seinfeld” where Elaine sent a Christmas card with an accidental nip slip to everyone she knew, prompting the famous line, “Your whole life, you go through painstaking efforts to hide your nipple and BOOM, suddenly hundreds of people get their own personal shot…
