This morning while getting ready for work, I had the TV on in the background. The show it was? The View. Now, I’m far from a regular or even semi regular View. . . viewer, but it was what was on so I just left it. I swear.
Oh my, the drama that insued today! Did anyone else catch this?
The gossip sites and magazines have been speculating for a while that no one on the show likes Star (especially Barbara) and that Star hates everyone on the show. Apparently, things have gotten worse as the prospect of Rosie O’Donnel joining the show looms closer (Rosie criticized Star’s “all natural” weight loss). Anyway, now that the background is out of the way, on to today.
Early on in the show, they were doing a news segment and one topic was bridezillas. Star is nortorious for her huge wedding that was sponsored by various groups. Anywho, they all accused Star of being a total Bridezilla and Star started rolling her eyes. Then Barbara made a snide comment about how tacky it is for Bridezillas to get their weddings sponsored (burn!). As they cut to commercial, Star was muttering, “Mortified. Mortified. I’m just frickin MORTIFIED.”
The next guest was some guy from a group that is collecting DNA samples to a database, but they (the group) will tell you who in the past you are related to. It wasn’t that National Geographic Genographic Project, but something sort of like that. Anywho, Star and Elisabeth were throwing fits about how unsafe it is- Star made some analogy about how what if in 26 years the government decides to use this against us? On and on. The guest was rolling his eyes. Barbara was rolling her eyes. Barbara finally said, “Well, I’m the only one who is going to do it, because I think it is a wonderful opportunity to learn about the world” (or something). Star kept arguing. Cut to commercial.
Sandra Bernhard was the main guest - and this is where things got exciting. Sandra made some joke about how Mariah Carey only claiming to be black when it is an advantage to her. Star got pissed and said something about Mariah being a strong black woman. Sandra said something like, “Uh oh! Star is about to tell me off!” Star replied, “I look too cute in my outfit today to even go there with you.”
Someone then asked Sandra what she thought of Laura Bush. Sandra said she thinks Bush is on drugs. Uber Right Wing Elisabeth started in on Sandra for saying horrible things about the President’s wife. Sandra said something like, “Honey, please.” Which is when Elisabeth went off: “Don’t call me honey, HONEY.”
Joy got up from the area and walked off the set. Star and Barbara tried to save the show.
I was entertained.
