The View has been around so long it's hard to remember a time when my TV didn't start blaring out shouts, shrill screams and laughter at 11Am. I don't even have to watch the clock, just stick the TV on channel 7 at some point after 10:30 AM and no problem, the whole neighborhood knows The View has begun. I admit it, nowadays I just watch to hear the political rants. Barbara Walters has obviously bet the farm on keeping that stuff as sensational as possible for ratings. It seems like The View may actually have "jumped the shark" with Sherrie Shepard, yea that could be spelled wrong, I don't care. Anyway here's what I got out of a decade of The View.
Meredith- miss you miss you miss you
Debbie- OK, Greek girls often scare me, especially now that I'm raising one, and Debbie was clueless, but they wanted young and they got it.
Lisa Ling- Obliterated the youth excuse applied to Debbie.
Joy - Cracks me up but actually reading up on a topic before trying to defend it might help.
Rosie- Never liked her on her own show, and at first thought "Ok, maybe I was wrong". Nope.
Barbara- A national treasure.
Star Jones- Definitely read up on EVERY topic, most intelligent View host ever, but holy cow, her ego was bigger than she was.
Elizabeth- Great for fitness tips, highlights and makeup advice, her fashion sense is way off, leave Joy and Whoopi the hell alone already with those stupid outfits, but politics? She's really the comedian, not Joy, right?
and Whoopi- there are no words. Loved this woman since first catching her one woman show a lifetime ago. "I'm, like, pg like Mary, except my baby, like, has a father." Please Whoopi, get off the sinking ship before barnacles start sticking.
Update= Whoopi you're still funny as hell and I guess mean well but that mortage bailout idea has got to be one of the most divisive, economy crushing, and misguided ideas I have ever heard in my life. However if you're so intent on it perhaps you could personally bail out some of them with your money. Maybe the other View ladies and Cindy McCain can chip in with their millions.
