YaY.... Whoopi !!
HooRay!! Whoopi has decided to join The View filling the position vacated by Rosie O'Donnell some months back. Whoopi was my first choice, although Sherrie Shepard would have also been good.
I wasn't a fan of The View. Everyone talking at the same time is irritating because you can't hear what is being said, but Rosie's hmmmmm ability to spice things up and the chance to see something unscripted happen on (mostly) live TV was a strong pull for me. So I began to watch the show. And I wasn't disappointed.
What I learned from watching The View was that one can push the envelope, as it were, but there is an invisible line that if one crosses it, they have gone too far and its no longer "fun" to watch. In fact it is down right uncomfortable. In my opinion, which is all this blog contains, is that both Rosie and Elizabeth crossed this line on more than one occasion. (I have never been a fan of either of these ladies, either.)
(And this past month it has seemed that The View became The Elizabeth Show.... whats up with that?!?)
So now I can get a daily dose of Whoopi... starting in September. (And I can hardly wait for Elizabeth to go on maternity leave. She stomps all over other people's conversations, especially Joy's.... perhaps she will decide to be a stay-at-home mom. It could happen.)
Go Whoopi, Go Whoopi, Go Whoopi!!
