For The Record, Tracy Morgan Doesn’t Stuff His Pants

Tracy Morgan took a seat on the estrogen-soaked couch of “The View” yesterday. He and Sherri Shepherd have a special relationship since she plays his wife on “30 Rock.” While watching a clip of the sitcom where Tracy got to show off his revenge body, Sherri shared a little secret. “Every time he…

Mother Punishes Son With Hot Sauce, Cold Shower

On “The View” this week, the ladies discussed a mother who appeared on Dr. Phil, who punishes her young son for misbehaving by pouring hot sauce on his tongue and forcing him into a freezing cold shower. (The mother has since been charged with abuse.) In the clip above, it’s clear this poor kid…

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…

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…

Wait, I voted for this man?

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.
