HomeTagsSmackdownRemarks That Finally Set Babs Walters Off Jillian Bowe November 21, 2008 Smackdown, The View 6 Comments Now like every other fan of The View , I too was left scratching my head as to what set off Barbara Walters to check the former co-hosts of her show. Being curious, I decided to find out the root of all evil as my people say, that put the bitch-slapping of today’s show in motion. While the former View co-host Rosie O’Donnell was out promoting her new variety show yesterday, Rosie Live which airs Thanksgiving eve on NBC. O’Donnell had a reality check for those fans of the popular ABC gab fest that truly believe everything is all fine and dandy once the cameras stopped rolling. According to O’Donnell, Barbara wanted everyone to believe and think and act as if [the women on ‘The View’] get along and are really good friends and happy and hang out together, and, you know, that’s just not the reality. I’m not saying they loathe each other, but the fact of the matter is there was not a lot of camaraderie off camera. O’Donnell’s comment combined with another ousted View member Star Jones remarks about her former colleagues in the latest Essence magazine Those girls were hateful. Now I wonder if Star will up the ante and create a video herself or be a suprise guest on Rosie’s show….

The two of them don’t even ki like that, yet they are both saying the same thing. What would they have to gain if they were still lying so long after they both have left the show? ***///My life as a soap fan is on life support, waiting for a miracle…\\\*** Log in to Reply Jillian Bowe November 21, 2008 Best let me tell you something… As much of a diva Star is and a bully Rosie can be those two aren’t lying about the atmosphere on The View. Star if anything has always been thorough with everything she does. Meaning she always has dates, times and places whenever she makes a statement or speaks on something. That’s the lawyer in her, she’s no fool and everyone and their mama can tell you Star knows the law any which way you slice it. Rosie’s a bit similar with the things she says and does. She always has proof as to what she’s saying in regards tot the show and the women on there. As much as she and Star detest each other they are NOT lying about whats going on with The View. Debbie Matenopoulos said the SAME thing when she was fired. She always stated the chicks on the show were mean and horrible to her and each other. I thought it was sour grapes but now she’s on point as well as the other ladies.

All they’ve done is prove that Debbie’s alligations were true. ***///My life as a soap fan is on life support, waiting for a miracle…\\\*** Log in to Reply elle November 21, 2008 How interesting that BW arragned a dinner, AFTER Rosie made those comments? I find it a little hard to believe that everyone is lovely dovey after those heated conversations in which Whoopie and Joy expressed utter exasperation with EH, but who knows? Who cares? Maybe that’s the way it was when Rosie was there- and, these days, BW does an awful lot of “insisting” they all love each other. Rosie’s response was hilarious on her blog. I guess when interviewed about her new show, and asked about the View, Rosie could say no comment but the woman is only telling her truth. The women of the View act like children.

I didn’t like they way Star pimped out her wedding on the show, but after seeing her in person, saw that she was great with her fans and really nice. My mother, sister and myself went to a taping of the View during one of those Emmy nominations shows, we sat right in the front. So basically Meredith Viera and Star sat next to us during that, they came up to us, talked to us, shook our hands. Joy did not, diva. Elizabeth was off somewhere else. I mean they praise Lisa Ling all the time, but she basically said she left the show to do legitamet work. How Elizabeth and Joy keep there jobs is beyond me, poor Whoopi. I love love Whoopi, she does class up the place. I beleive Rosie all the way. I know some people hate her and she is very out spoken, but when three people all say the same thing about a former show, well then.
