Whooping AgentOrange

Things are heating up once again on ABC's The View (aka The Shrews). Actually it doesn't seem like a day goes by without not hearing some blurb over what was said on the show. I'm still amazed that this daily trainwreck is still on the air. Then again Rosie's brief tenure on The Shrews raised ratings as folks couldn't wait to see who Rosie laid it into. Rosie and the dumb one (that would be the Survivor twit) even had heated words related to the Iraq war that eventually contributed to Rosie telling The Shrews to fuck off as she rode into the sunset.

Here's footage of that heated exchange.

I don't watch the show regularly but I get my daily fix on the antics of the show from my favorite TV board. Some posters on that board have resorted to calling the twit AgentOrange due to her orange-like skin. Visiting that board and reading the snark is almost as addicting as A4A.

But Hemingway today Whoopi (the new moderator of the Shrews) laid it into the Survivor twit on her generic views on abortion among other topics. Why they don't fire that twit is beyond my comprehension. Who am I kidding? It's all about ratings and the twit nonsensical rantings I'm sure they feel contribute to the ratings. I'm just glad Whoopi laid it on her. I was wondering when the next feud would come.

Here's an article on the exchange (until I can find a link on YouTube....*LOL*).

The jury's still out on the other new kid of the block Sherri Shepherd who some think of as the second coming of Star Jones. She herself has had a rocky start with some of her comments, including one where she thought the earth was flat. Some has argued she hasn't contributed much to the discussions other than corny one-liners. It'll be interesting to see if that changes.

i don't watch that show but i always get echoes of things that happen on it, things do get heated pretty often... the 2 or 3 times i got to watch it, it was pretty entertaining tho... so many personnality clashes... it was also annoying because of the number of time people get interrupted and voices are raised for no reason !!!!!

yea - sherri does have a lot of one-liners...but she's trying. i think she'll find her place. she's not the intellectual type at all - but she's funny as all get out. i love whoopi in the role...stark contrast to her interview on larry king live though...i loves me some the view...i dvr it everyday.

Thank God Rosie is gone. I can't stand her ass. She really bothers me. She stands on a damn soap box, spews her garbage and refuses to yield the damn floor to give someone else a chance to talk.

Sherri's a comedian. She's used to being a one-woman show. She'll warm up to it eventually.

But we both know she'll never be able to talk on there like she's used to... lol

I think that I have watched this show less than 10 times, but since Whoopi is getting so much press, I may have to start watching.
