    I had never heard that expression before, but it sounds juvenile to me, negating the very assertion it's trying to express.

    Maybe some people don't get around as much as others?

    Personally, I wouldn't want to be around "grown women" who feel like they need to talk like they're in junior high.

    Surprised that it's unfamiliar to so many, but maybe it's a regional thing - because I have never watched an episode of The Bachelor or The Bachelorette, and yet that phrase is by no means unfamiliar to me. As a rule, it conveys exasperation, much like any other "mild cussing" might.

    It's all about communication.

    I have heard that "grown ass" term for a long time and it is just that juvenile.

    'smh' to Whoppie if she is talking like that.

    Exactly like, Miss Scarlet said, she is trying to prove something and not succeeding.

    I am an adult woman....I am an adult toad woman.
    I agree, it also made her looks stupid, and not so grown up

    Apparently her idea of communication means using slang expressions involving curse words, as she is fairly often bleeped on the show mid-sentence. I think that's a lazy way to communicate. Every so often she has something interesting to say, but usually her comments are predictable and lack depth and insight. I would think she could do better. Wouldn't mind if she had been purged from the show along with the others. Maybe she'll be motivated to up her game with Rosie there. Whether you like Rosie or not, she knows how to express an opinion!

    True, we may see another side of Whoopi .From the comments I have seen, the show seems doomed before it starts up again.
