I think her comments in the boardroom are always right on target, the most intelligent, and I'm always interested in what she has to say.
    I didn't watch either, but how rude for them to try and cast a doubt on her contributions.

    If I were famous, I wouldn't be knocking down their door to be on that show.

    Joy was a b*tchy little snot. Maybe she is just jealous that Carolyn is so thin AND pretty. Joy and Star---2 reasons that the View sucks!!

    yall are too sensitive

    everyone knows that Carolyn is a smart intellegent lady, nobody questions that

    everyone knows that is how Joy Behar is (she doesn't mean anything by it), she is raw and vulgar with everything she says, that is the NY in her and she does stuff like that to add her "comedy" to the show

    Carolyn did take offense, but it was just a joke, Joy didn't really mean anything by either comment, its just how she is

    I didn't see the show, but I'm offended. It must suck that no matter how hard she works or what she does, she'll be dismissed by people because they think she's just a pretty blonde. Does George ever get remarks that he got the job because he looks like a nice grandfather?

    I can't stand Joy. I'm surprised that she made a living as a comedian. She's never, ever funny.
    If you go through a lot of hammers each month, I don't think it necessarily means you're a hard worker.
    It may just mean that you have a lot to learn about proper hammer maintenance.

    I can identify with Carolyn, I've been in the business world for over 30 years, coming up in a male dominated industry when women were just starting to get into professional jobs. The women in the more traditional roles were catty and smirked that anyone of us who seemed to be getting ahead were sleeping our way to the top. Of course, they were just sleeping around for fun --- anywho, those comments showed Joy's complete ignorance and lack of respect for a successful person. What did she ask George about I wonder?

    I agree. I don't think anyone is being oversensitive.

    At least for me, I am troubled that comments like that are made, as they perpetuate the stereotype that women can only be one or the other -- attractive or intelligent. And the fact that it was made by another woman is sad.

    So where does that leave Joy?
    Ya know, I realize "how Joy is" but it was a very tacky comment. She laid an egg. I bet something is said tomorrow - they often do that when they "goof".

    I like the way Carolyn and George enter shows - she has her arm in his, like an escort. Very classy. I think G is in his mid 70s and she is 35.

    I didn't see it, but I gotta say that Carolyn just ROCKS. I'll admit, it took a while for her to grow on me, but after her SNL appearance (can she wail on those drums or WHAT?), she has won me over. It's no surprise to me that Joy Behar made tacky comments-- heck it's what she's known for. But Carolyn has achieved success much greater than hers. She has been working for Trump, heading up the golf courses for 10 years, meaning she started when she was 25, and hand picked by the Donald himself. Joy Behar? No one ever even *heard* of her until she got a job (I'll never figure out how) working with Baba Wahwah. Joy's jealous, and feels threatened-- because Caroyln is a TV star now too. So ends my analysis of the situation...LOL.
