I think she immediately assumed that her father really did moleste her and was trying to get out of it even if it meant his daughter went to prison for a murder she did not commit.
This case is getting really messy and more questions are being raised. I am will follow it now; my interest is perked.
I think the tape over the child's face is pretty good evidence that she didn't just drown (see the thread on current events for more details). Anyway, if the dad did all those things to her, it might be taken into account at sentencing, but is pretty irrelevant as to deciding what happened. I'm surprised Joy would be so out of it, busy or not... it's exactly the kind of thing likely to discussed on The View.
Does anyone else think that Barbara is somewhat jealous of all the attention that Oprah's exit has been getting? That just hit me today. Yesterday when they were talking about Oprah's final show, she really went after Oprah's notion that everyone has a calling. It seemed odd to me how passionate about it she was. Then today when Dr Oz was on, she seemed like she was rolling her eyes at the intro, since it followed tape of Dr Oz with Oprah. It occured to me, all of the Oprah hype has been about her being the biggest woman on TV. They talked briefly yesterday about how to some, it seemed logical to put The View into Oprah's time slot, but there was never real consideration of it. So are we seeing Barbara's jealousy coming out?
probably - she's a kook!
and seriously I didn't need to see Whoopie tooting on live tv

The "tooting" was, in all liklihood, all in your mind!!! Nothing like the power of suggestion! They were wackily out of control yesterday! Sometimes, Whoop can fit in nicely with the juvenile boys humor!

Her work is very different than Oprah; she has not reached the hearts of people or did anything to change lives. They are in different arenas. I don't care if she is close friends with Henry Kissnger and I dare say I speak for many.
I do agree that not everyone has a calling but this is not the time to pick apart Oprah's philosophy. Applaud the work she has done and move on.
That would mean Babs would have to show graciousness, which I dont' think comes easy to her. She has a sense of entitlement because of her background, and likely feels people should love her more than Oprah. I'd love to know how Babs and Oprah realllly feel about each other.....
