i too agree re barbara, and her dominating the conversation. re the show today...enuf already about elton john. i wasn't invited to his bday celebration and don't care to hear them go on and on about it.
i think eliz is preggers...they just haven't announced it yet. she seems to have a pooch lately, even though she is in incredible shape. i think it's baby #2.
The Elton John rambling this morning was ridiculous.
Not a Hot Topic imo.
I also thought it was pretty rude considering two of the hosts didn't get invited.
I agree, Veruka, re the fact that the guest host generally doesn't say much after the Hot Topics.
It just seems pointless having one there.
If they are going to bring in a permanent fourth host I have to say I've been pretty impressed with Jacque Reid (sp).
I'm not sure if Elisabeth is pregnant or not.
If she is, then I don't understand why she was talking about getting bikini-ready last week.
If she's wearing loose-fitting dresses to hide a baby bump it's rather unlikely she'll be out in public wearing a bikini any time soon.
I tend to think she isn't pregnant yet.

i enjoyed watching the Rosie clips, i remember every single one of them... there's more i remember that they could have put on.
i seen one of the tabloid shows last week and it was confirmed that Elisabeth was backstage balling her eyes out after one of Rosie's on air thrashings (just as i suspected). i'm sure it probably has happened more than once.
it annoys me that after that Star Jones fiasco that Elisabeth and Rosie allways come with that fake "we love each other" BS the next day after. They think viewers are dumb and belive all them skits like the lap siiting and whatnot.
pay close attention to Joy when Elisabeth and Rosie get into it, you can see that she is feeling bad for Elisabeth and wants to say something to Rosie, but she figures it's better to stay out of it.
as far as "spin" i don't see where it would apply here. Scarboroughs country is not in competition with The View. I think that segment covered 2 things. They weren't downgrading BW's accomplishment in journalism, they were just saying that lately she doesn't seem in control ie. Rosie and her dominance and her recent interviews have been fluff...

:ohno I hope she goes, and soon.
Maybe Barbawa hired Rosie with the intent to have the whole show be passed to her, and it'll be Rosie's altogether someday. :shrug
It's really awkward to watch Rosie on the show IMO. It's not her show, and she really takes uncomfortable control of the whole shindig. It comes across like she reallly, really needs the attention. :omg
If this is what was meant to happen, then yeah, they should at least own up to giving her all the reins. Then maybe we'd all understand the hugeeee conversational tunnel-vision with the guests and Rosie all the time.
Barbara. I don't see her as a pioneer. Dave Garaway and the producers of the Today show, decades ago, decided to break the ground and hire a woman; they are the pioneers. Barbara was in the right place at the right time. From there a lot of her career fell into place because she was the only woman in the rifle site. Not to say she did not work hard in her career; the ducks were lined up for her, though.
Her constant name dropping and references to how well she is connected, by describing the events and parties she attends, should stop. Celebrity PR people have her on the must invite list; there is no more to it. She has been steered into the icon position by many people and circumstances. I do not see her as a huge contributer to journalism. She is boring to a degree that is profound.
As forEliz, Joy and Rosie, I love the combination of personalities. I love the sparks that fly and what each contributes. Rosie knows that she is a strong personality and reacts quickly. She apologizes and admits she is working on it. That is as good as it gets with any of us.
Hire a permanent fourth host!. I have grown weary of having the first segment of hot topics dominated by getting to know the guest. I don't care. I want to get on with the good stuff.
I tivo this show and FF through the celebrity interviews. I find the spots at the end more interesting and way too short. My vote would be to skip the guest spot and have more of Joys comedy corner, interesting products, food topics, shopping stuff, anything but another actor talking about their craft and latest role.
Sure, Dave Garaway, and later in her career the execs at ABC had to make the pioneering decision to place a woman in a job that had always been done by men. But Barbara had to be there to begin with to be in the "right place at the right time". She was willing to be somewhere that many people clearly told her she didn't belong. She was willing to take that abuse (and anyone who has heard some of the Harry Reasner stories knows there was abuse). For that, I think she deserves some of the credit.

While the name dropping bits are not my favorite either, I don't think they should stop. There are so many magazines out there like People and Us, and so many entertainment TV shows like E! News Daily and ET, that illustrate there is a large portion of the population that does care about what happens at various celebrity gatherings. Being an attendee rather than a reporter on the red carpet, Barbara can offer a different perspective on an aspect of celebrity culture that people obviously are interested in - even if you and I are not two of those interested.

that lady is 34, in general all them highstrung bleach hair shrill voice women annoy the hell out of me.
i don't even think she's good looking. but i guess if you like long skinny women with annoying voices then she is perfect.
this chick is famous now i guess, she contributed nothing to society and people have been giving her jobs. this is the american dream :mmm
She could be easily discounted if it wasn't for the fact that she was a model and now does commercials and hosts a show. A Hilton she's not.
