The View drama..

  1. I'm surprised noone has brought this up (or maybe I missed it) but I was just wondering what everyone thought about it all. I didn't actually see the episode on TV but of course, have seen the clips.

    basically, Rosie O'Donnell and Elizabeth Hasselbeck got into a verbal altercation on the show. It turned into quite the political arena between two oppositve sides of the political spectrum. It wasn't the normal debate but more of a finger pointing, name calling thing that was really ugly in my opinion.

    Oh. My. Goodness!

    *cough* *wheeze*

    Thanks for the clarification Muffie! :chuckle

    No wonder I was confused!

    Although I like Rosie for the good things she does for children; I think she is a loud-mouthed rude individual. IMO she verbally attacked Elisabeth for no reason. Rosie is the one who initially made the comment about "our" soilders killing Iraqi's and being no better than terrorists. :angryfire

    I think it is time for Rosie to go. I can't believe they would be too sad to see her go despite what they say about liking her.

    Hi,

    Thanks for clarifying

    I generally tend to stay out of "political spectrum" debates because my political philosophy matches neither side.

    I did a little search about the incident and I find that I neither agree with O'Donnell nor Hasselbeck (I actually think they are closer in political philosophy than they make out to be).

    cheers,
    Roy

    I can't watch Rosie anymore. I see her as a former underdog who is using her current status/money/leverage to bully others. When she first became famous, she seemed like an awestruck kid and showed a bit of vulnerability that was both appealing and inviting. Now her dominant traits--and I do mean dominant--seem to be anger and condescension.

    I don't have anything against strong, outspoken women (heck, I like to think I am one). I do recoil from rude, inconsiderate loudmouths who have to be the center of attention and who radiate contempt for anyone who disagrees with them.

    I know she promotes a number of causes, but you don't have to become a screech owl (complete with sharp beak and claws) to make a stand for your beliefs.

    When I get past being angry, I feel sad for her. Years ago when she was the new kid at the party, she appeared to be having a lot more fun. She seems perpetually displeased and unhappy now.

    What Miranda said.

    Rosie used to be the "Queen of Nice"..........it's sad that she's become this harridan who seemingly goes out of her way to alienate people. I wish she'd get some help---it must be awful to be so angry all the time.

    What bugged me about the clip that I saw was that Elizabeth wouldn't sht up hen Joy was talking and then she and Rosie had to make it all about them again. Glad I don't watch this show because it has gone way downhill.

    I am so glad that I don't watch The View. My wife Amy went to a live show of The View once, a long time ago. I think it was back when more of the original members were on the show. She liked it then. Doesn't watch the show now. Now, Amy, almost exclusively, watches the Food Channel. THIS is a very, very, very good thing!

    Regarding Rosie. I don't watch The View. I'm so glad that I don't! :chuckle

    Every so often, though, I used to watch Rosie when she had her own show. I liked that show. Those dolls she used to display were cute. And that kidding about Tom Cruise being her love was just precious. (I just like using the word "precious" :chuckle ) It was good, silly fun. I also remember watching her in the movie when she wore that S & M outfit (don't remember the name of that movie :imbar But I remember that outfit! :chuckle). That movie came out before she had her talk show, I think.

    Oh well. I like shows like "How It's Made" and "Meerkat Manor". I also watch the Food Channel with Amy.
