    Re: The View

    Without being there, how do any of us know that it's fake nice? Isn't it entirely possible that they do actually like each other? When they really didn't before (read: Star) we knew about it. We don't hear those kind of rumors now.

    So Katie Couric teared up on the show when she was a guest. Unprofessional, or human?

    Re: The View

    E* must have took some Flintstones vitamins this morning, she looked like she came on with every intention to fight.

    It didn't even look like they put makeup on her.

    I REALLY WISH THAT the hosts would STOP feeling the need to come back after break to explain how much they all 'love' each other.

    that is very insulting to viewers i recon

    Yeah she was very feisty today! I don't think she was trying to necessarily start a fight she just wanted to get her point across. I am sure it can feel difficult to get your point across when they all have very different views!

    Also I kind of dig that they have been saying that they are not upset with each other, I can understand the need for it also. I check out all the gossip blogs each day and when ever there is a heated discussion the headline says they hate each other! Its all really very amusing, considering the show was intended to show different views!

    Ran across this while roaming around the internet. NOTHING would surprise me about BW if it is, indeed, true.

    Barbara Walters wants Sherri Shepherd off The View



    Sherri Shepherd publicly apologized on air for saying in an interview with a Christian Women’s magazine that she hoped her boss, Barbara Walters, could “get saved” by a televangelist. She said in the same interview that she went through a very rough time when she was young and that she’d “had more abortions than I would like to count.” After the details of the interview were widely publicized, Shepherd clarified her remarks, saying that she was not glamorizing abortion and that she hoped to inspire women who also felt extreme guilt and shame over having an abortion. She also claimed that her quotes were taken out of context and that she was joking about wanting to have Walters saved.

    Shepherd said she called Barbara Walters ahead of time to warn her that the quote was going to be published, and that Walters laughed and acted like it wasn’t a big deal. A show source tells the National Enquirer that Barbara is fed up with with Sherri and the idiotic things she says on air and that the “saved” comment was just Sherri’s latest gaffe to piss her off:

    “Barbara has had it with her,” said the source. “Barbara was shocked that Sherri would say she needs to be ’saved’. She’s dumbfounded by the stupid things that keep coming out of Sherri’s mouth…

    Barbara has been saying that Sherri’s a “loose cannon,” added the source. “And after hearing what she said to a Christian magazine, word came back from Barbara that she wants to boot her off the show.

    “Barbara thinks Sherri has become far worse of a problem than Star Jones and Rosie’s O’Donnel when they were on the show - and that’s saying a lot!”

    While Barbara is ready to see Sherri move on from “The View,” insiders say it’s unlikely there will be a dramatic firing.

    “Barbara may first give her a chance to shape up before shipping her out…

    “And if Barbara does let Sherri go, expect a fun farewell with the whole gang saying only nice things about Sherri in public.”

    [From The National Enquirer, print edition, August 11, 2008]

    Everyone else on The View may be smarter than Sherri - and that’s not saying much considering that Sherri thinks Jesus came before the Romans - but Barbara Walters’ personality is shrewish and she sticks out on that panel. Barbara is constantly making the celebrity guests on the show uncomfortable with blunt questions. The View is a roundtable talkshow with an audience, it’s not a one on one interview like Walters is used to and she has to tone down the personal questions.

    The show is so much more watchable when Whoopi is there running everything without Barbara. Yes Sherri says stupid things, but she’s earnest about it and she’s not really hurting anyone. Sherri’s dumb observations are a kind of comic relief and the other women make excuses for her and help her out. Barbara would do better to retire than to try and get rid of Sherri. Sherri isn’t the one who’s dragging the show down.

    I like Sherri at first, but something has happened. I don't know if it the producers or what, but her personality seems to have been put on ice. Granted, she's not the brightest apple in the barrel, but she was always funny. Now, not so much. I kind of feel sorry for her.

    I really like Sherry and I hope she doesn't leave. If anyone should leave it she be EH but Barabra just loves her, EH causes more trouble than all the other ladies on The View.

    I would like to see grouchy old Joy leave if I could have my choice of any of the hosts to depart. And of course Babs too.

    I don't think Joy would be grouchy if Elisabeth left the panel. I hope this is wrong info about Sherri. Yes, she says some really stupid things sometimes - but that is less annoying than EH taking over the table and every.single.discussion.every. single.time. And it would probably not be the best PR for Babs to fire Sherri right now -- it would just show her for the shrew that we know she is. She would have to go on another endless run of the talk show circuit giving BS reasons as to why/how Sherri left. And then we would never have the chance to see Elisabeth let go. Ugh...

    I actually really like the panel the way it is right now. I hope it stays as it is next year. I enjoy the perspective that Sherri brings being wide-eyed and new to the whole celebrity thing. I disagree with Joy a lot, and get irritated by her, but she brings her own something special to the show which I would miss if it wasn't there. Whoopi has brought more to the show than I expected -- I really respect that she doens't play the "I'm a big star, this is about me" card. And I enjoy Elisabeth's passion and her attempts to throw a conservative voice in the mix. If anything, I wish that on days Babs isn't there, they'd throw in more guests hosts when it makes sense.
