Stacey Dash's Mitt Romney Support Sparks Discussion on Blacks and Voting on The View


When Clueless and Single Ladies alum Stacey Dash tweeted support for Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney, Twitter and the rest of the Internet erupted in bitter debate. Some fans of the star were outraged that a black actress is supporting a Republican, as opposed to President Barack Obama, a Democrat. 

Others applauded Dash for her courage in speaking out for what she believes in. Of course the women of The View had to give their five cents on the controversial topic. Check out what they had to say after the jump!

The war of words between political comedian Bill Maher and Let's Make a Deal host Wayne Brady has been the talk of the blogosphere for the past few days. Apparently the squabble started when Maher took a dig at President Barack Obama's blackness—or in Maher's opinion, lack thereof—by comparing the POTUS to Brady on his HBO series Real Time With Bill Maher.

ABC Denies Barbara Walters is Retiring Next Year

Sorry kids, it looks as though Barbara Walters was trying her comedy routine out on President Barack Obama. TMZ reports the veteran journalist is not headed for retirement, despite her statement when interviewing the President. Senior Vice President of ABC News Jeff Schneider told the site:
