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

the view for men

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 Suzuki St. Pierre on “Ugly Betty”; BET news anchor Jacque Reid; and former Fox News host E.D. Hill. According to The New York Daily News, “[the show] will attempt to inject a male perspective into the topics of the day.” Um, that’s called nearly all of nighttime news/chat TV already. Allow me to introduce to you Larry King, David Letterman, Brian Williams, Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert, Jay Leno, Sean Hannity, Alan Colmes, Conan O’Brien, Shephard Smith … Keep reading »

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 it up. “There was a lack of intimacy because our problems were so heavy,” he said, describing why he didn’t want to get down with fiance Vienna Girardi. “I can’t separate love and intimacy — and apparently that makes me gay.” Keep reading »

Major drama on “The View“! Michaele Salahi, the “The Real Housewives of DC” cast member best known for crashing a party at the White House, is alleging that Whoopi Goldberg slapped her during her appearance on the show yesterday. Keep reading »

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 Lohan’s jail sentence, he fielded questions about Afghanistan, unemployment, racism, and the economy. And yes, the show’s token conservative, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, behaved herself. Keep reading »

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 View” that he wasn’t actually invited to Chelsea Clinton’s wedding. So sad—we would have loved the mental image of him and Bill dancing to “Celebration” at the reception. Make sure to catch Obama’s “View” appearance at 11 a.m. EST. [People] Keep reading »

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 woman who gave us “Sister Act,” but yesterday Elisabeth started licking at her heels once again. In a discussion about a study that says more and more women are coming out as lesbians later in life, Hasselbeck concluded that the reason is simple — “All the older men are going for younger women, leaving the women with no one.” Hear that, lesbians? Desperation is to blame! [Advocate] Keep reading »
