The President and The First Lady Visit ‘The View’


With a reminder from my fantastic Grandmother that President and First Lady Obama would be visiting The View, I decided to watch the program for the first time in a long time.

As much as I enjoy hearing Barack and Michelle speak, I will also admit tuning in to see how tightly wound resident conservative Elisabeth Hasselbeck would be.

On the fashion watch the first lady looked fantastic in a square necked, sleeveless (of course!) dress with a full skirt. The green color (a somber cousin to all the sea foam from the Emmy Red Carpet) paired with an eclectic array of jewelry (known as hodge podge, if you are not chic) and shoes that appeared to be maroon. Other notable style choices were Elisabeth’s red dress (channeling both Nancy Regan and Anne Romney) and Whoopi’s shoes, which were sky high and red heeled. A precursory google search gave me nada on them. DivaJulia, please chime in if you have info, because they were stunning.

Look Newt Gingrich, The Welfare President came bearing gifts. Presenting Babara Walters with a gift basket, Obama joked she would no longer have to “pilfer signature items when she visit the White House“.

Over all, the mood was appropriately light, with anecdotes about their upcoming 20th wedding anniversary and life with two daughters. After saying how much she really liked them, Elisabeth got to put on her serious journalist face and asked about the growing divide between the “have and have nots” in America. My general disgust for Bitsy aside, her over all tone was very respectful, which is about all that you can ask.

Having not seen Sherri Shepard in a good while, I was impressed with her new (to me) short and sleek hair. Still don’t know what is going on the inside of her head, but the outside is on POINT. In the hopes of borrowing some tips from the first couple, Sherri asked Michelle Obama about the nightly bedtime ritual she and Barack have. I cackled at her use of the word “ritual”, picturing some of my Tea Party neighbors, nodding knowingly about Obama and his foreign, muslim satanic roots.

Ritual or routine, the first lady coyly responded that she wasn’t talking about what they did before they went to bed. Not to be topped by Jill and Joe Biden, the President nodded, so we are all clear on that front.

So as not to appear too partisan, if and when Willard and Ann Romney join the ladies of The View, I’ll watch. I think Whoopi has a lot she’d like to say.

Prince Debuts New Hair On ‘The View’

Oh, HEY Prince!

The Purple One made an appearance on ‘The View’ Monday sporting a new do to promote his charity Rebuild The Dream and talk about his music career.

The last time Prince visited the show, he was bumrushed by Sherri Shepard, but she kept her hands to herself this time. Even though I miss the curls, I am loving this fro!

Andy and Prince

Prince is rocking this look for an upcoming video for a song called “Extraloveable“, featuring the gorgeous Andy Allo, his new protege.

I don’t believe Elisabeth Hasselbeck is sorry at ALL. (Video, calling out Erin Andrews.)

ZIP IT, Hasselbitch.

Full. Body. Eyeroll. Elisabeth Hasselbeck never ceases to irritate me. Care to take a listen to this?

So, today Hasselbitch comes up with the crazy story that “her daughter told her to call Erin”. I call bullshit. I think her PUBLICIST may have TOLD her to call and apologize, but not her 5-year old daughter, Grace.  No. Way.  In fact, how dare she try to garner sympathy by tossing her child into this mess.

“She’s so cute, she said to me, ‘Mommy, why don’t you just call Erin and tell her you’re sorry?’ So, thankfully, I listened to her — she’s a wise little girl — and I did. So, I’m really sorry, and I wanted to offer that publicly too, even though I did follow that advice.”

Oh. Uh-huh.

Hasselbitch is constantly LYING to her children and ADMITTING it on “The View” — whether it’s about how the kids’ garden died (she killed the plants!), or that all of her kids have “the same birthday, so no one is upset!”.  Really??

After the blonde loudmouth from “The View”  basically said Erin Andrews dresses like a ho’ and deserved being peeped at by a nutcase since she wears sexy dresses on “DWTS”.  She’s just so transparent. (Meanwhile,  what about what Hasselbitch was wearing during DAYTIME TV, while she blamed Erin for her stalker troubles?)

Boo-freakin’-HOO.  I didn’t fall for tearful apology whatsoever.  She cried because she was stressy and under fire for making the typical “blame the victim” statements.  I really cannot stand this self-righteous little snip.  (“Snip” is being kind, by the way.)

What do YOU think?  Did she initially say exactly how she felt, THEN got caught and was forced to apologize?  Or was it merely an off-the-cuff remark?

I think you can tell how I feel about this woman.
