    Re: The View

    An article about Jenny that says she's with a football player is an old article. Before she got The View and started dating Donnie, she was dating Brian Urlacher who was a linebacker for the Chicago Bears. Her son lives in Chicago now because she moved him to be with Brian. THey broke up very shortly after that.

    Re: The View

    Sherri looks really good today....if she'd just lose the red wig. Her bust looks a lot smaller; the dress(?) print and cut of the top is very flattering on her.

    Whoopi has her braids pulled back out of her face! Nice! She also announced, yesterday, that her first great grandchild was born over the weekend! The baby girl's name is Charlie Rose.....I LOVE IT!


    OK, Sherri's purple nails look stooopid. I've never been able to appreciate the bizarro nail colors that seem to be all the rage now.

    Re: The View

    I felt kind of bad for Whoopi when she made that announcement yesterday. Becoming a great grandmother is a big deal. Whoopi is not hte kind of woman who is going to make it all about her, but the other women should have. It would have been nice if they'd jumped in to make that the first thing they talked about. I know they needed to welcome Jorge and establish who he was. But given it was a big deal, Ithink it owuld have made sense if Barbara had said "Before we get to know Jorge, Whoopi, something exciting happend for you ...". She deserved that moment. I was also sorry they didn't have Whoopi out to participate with the interview with Patrick Swayze's widow, but can understand if it was Whoopi's choice not to, and allow her time with LIsa to be private. Last comment on yesterday's show -- the interview with the Duke porn star was terrible. The girl thinks a lot more of her own communication skills than she should - she came across to me as immature and entitled, believing that she has the world figured out when in truth she doesn't have a clue. But they didn't seem to be able to figure out how to talk to her. They'd slammed her the week before, but Sherri was the only one willing to do it to her face -- and she was not very effective in getting her point across. I also know there is a difference between posing nude and doing porn, but it seems very odd to me when Sherri gets so self-righteous about this story sitting right next to Jenny the former playmate.

    Re: The View

    The guest host today, don't know who she is, just READ Barbara as they were going to break!!! BW did her usual thing of talking down to her as they were concluding a discussion on George Clooney's girlfriends (you know how BW thinks she has to explain the obvious to people)....BW said to her "Well, that is why it's called "The View!" The woman said to her "Oh, I know, Barbara....I know." You could just barely hear the exchange, but it was there! I got such a kick out of it that I had to play it back several times!!


    Very interesting dress the guest host has on. Lovely.

    I thought it was interesting that as Anita Hill was responding to a question she was asked, there was a shot of the entire table, and everyone was listening interestedly to her ... except for Barbara, who was too busy rifling through her note cards so she could ask another question. How about coming to the table prepared, Barbara, so you can actually be polite and professional and pay attention to what the guest is saying.

    Re: The View

    Anita Hill is one of my HEROES!!!! I was so pleasantly surprised to see her on The View, and to hear that she has made a documentary about the way she was sexually harassed at her office (on numerous occasions), by the sleaze-ball who got away with it. Although her bravery, in being willing to publicly come forward and testify about what happened, made a HUGE negative impact in her life, we all have Anita Hill to THANK for being the torch-bearer for the rights we now enjoy today, because thanks (in great part) to her, we now have legal protection against sexual harassment in the work place.

    Does it always work? Not necessarily, which is sad. Men still protect each other. Just look at the military.

    It's right up there with drunk driving. Not always seen or adjudicated as any big deal.

    You're right Shay, it doesn't always work, but then, does ANY law or protection 'always' work? At least we have protective laws on the books now, that we didn't have before the infamous Senate Hearings. And we've gotten a lot of movement forward against sexual harassment in the military now, thanks to the very brave female military personnel who are speaking up about their sexual harassment -- and this is FINALLY beginning to have some effect.

    Re: The View

    It seems like it always starts out like gangbusters and then plays out. When they insist on keeping all men on the panel to judge what went on (military), it just shows that they are not that interested in changing anything. It's just wrong.....so much for "a lot", IMO. I've never believed that you can have the fox guarding the henhouse and expect a decent outcome.

    Re: The View

    It didn't sound right to me that we didn't have sexual harassment laws before Anita Hill, so I did some research. We did in fact have laws on the books before that. There are documented legal cases protecting women from sexual harassment going back as far as the mid-70s. When it comes to Anita Hill, I must admit I have always been torn as to which side is telling the truth. I've read arguments from her side, and I've read argument from Clarence Thomas' side, including his own words in his autobiography. I've formed the opinion that Hill may have felt harassed, but because it was not voiced, Thomas did not know the impact that he had on her. The "proven" situations between them leave a lot of room for interpretation and are not the classic "you have to sleep with me or you won't get the promotion" kind of harassment. It is a tricky and difficult situation, but as they repeat over and ovr and over again in most HR training courses, if objectionable behavior is not identified by the offender as being objectionable, then he or she cannot be expected to change the behavior. There are cut and dry cases of sexual harassment, and there are gray areas. I'm of the thinking that Clarance Thomas and Anita Hill fall into a pale gray area at best, and his character was unfairly attacked. That said, Hill speaking up when she did DID bring attention to the issue, make people more aware, and created better conditions for others.
