A few weeks ago, rumors surfaced Rosie Perez was leaving The View. As it turns out, it was a different Rosie jumping ship. Over the weekend, it was revealed that O’Donnell was once again leaving the ABC daytime chatfest after a brief return.
Viewers who tuned in to Monday’s episode hoping to hear the truth from the proverbial horse’s mouth were sadly disappointed. There was nary a mention of it on the show. The 52-year-old took to YouTube to reveal the exact reasons.
Pretty much, it’s a combination of splitting with her wife Michelle Rounds and taking care of her health after surviving a major heart attack years ago. Rosie’s final episode (until she returns again) airs this Friday. Check out her YouTube clip below.
Sometimes I like the Osbourne family and then one of them pulls a stunt like this and… you know.
When Lady Gaga tried to squash her feud with Kelly Osbourne by giving a peace offering in the form of a birthday cake via Sharon, Kelly tweeted a few harsh words accusing Gaga of being disingenuous. I thought it was completely rude and ungracious for Kelly not to accept Gaga’s apology.
They say “sorry” is the hardest word to say, so when anyone offers an apology, I try to accept it and move on. Sharon felt the same way and recently commented on her daughter’s former feud by saying, “You know what, life is way too short.” Based on her behavior on The Arsenio Hall Show, it looks life’s not too short to start a feud.
During an interview with her The Talk co-hosts, Sharon had a few not so choice words regarding the ladies of The View. It all began when Hall asked the ladies what the difference between the two shows were. Julie Chen responded politely by stating their show doesn’t cover politics. Osbourne gulped down her red solo cup and interrupted, “Cut to the chase. Stop being polite. Cut to the f***ing chase.” She continued, “This is the situation. Barbara, idolize her, divine, she is superhuman, I love, but the rest can go f*** themselves.”
I agree that The Talk is better than The View currently but have some class girl. If it wasn’t for The View, I’m sure you guys wouldn’t be around. In addition, I think Sharon is the weakest link on the panel. She can go in my opinion. Watch her rant below.
The dawn of a new era for The View is here. Gone are Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Joy Behar. Stepping in to join the three ring circus is blond funny lady Jenny McCarthy. ABC just released the first promo pics for the daytime talk show’s upcoming 17th season featuring its new addition. Judging by first impression, it appears she fits in just perfectly.
Already, she’s fooling around with Sherri Shepherd and poking fun at Barbara Walters. Why there isn’t a photo of Whoopi with Jenny is interesting? Are they already not getting along? Probably not the case, but it is interesting why a promo photo with just the two of them is missing. McCarthy makes her debut as an official host on September 9. Check out the promo photos below.
Just days after Elisabeth Hasselbeck announced her departure on The View, we already have a new panelist. Jenny McCarthy is officially on board for the ABC talk show’s 17th season. However, she’s not Hasselbeck’s replacement but rather taking Joy Behar’s seat when her contract expires in August.
“We are delighted that Jenny will be joining us as a permanent co-host on ‘The View’ starting in September,” Barbara Walters says in a statement. “Jenny brings us intelligence as well as warmth and humor. She can be serious and outrageous. She has connected with our audience and offers a fresh point of view. Jenny will be a great addition to the show as we usher in an exciting new chapter for ‘The View.’”
What this bodes for McCarthy’s weekly talk show on VH1 is anyone’s guess. I’m thinking fans of the chatfest probably shouldn’t hold their breath for a second season. Prior to joining The View, Jenny has appeared on the show as a guest and fill-in host over a dozen times. I don’t expect any first day jitters on September 9 when she officially joins the cast.
After months of speculation, it’s official. Elisabeth Hasselbeck is leaving her spot on The View after ten years. Nine years too long if you ask me. With Joy Behar announcing her departure back in March and Barbara Walters’ upcoming retirement, the long-running talk show will have a major facelift come September. Personally, I think it’s long overdue. With the ABC show dipping in ratings and CBS’ The Talk rising, something major needed to be done.
“We have had 10 wonderful years with Elisabeth, and she will now be swimming in new waters,” said Barbara Walters. “We will miss her and wish her everything good.”
If you’re in the minority and love Elisabeth, you only have one more day to enjoy her on The View. Wednesday, July 10 is her last day. Pretty quick deal if you ask me. IMHO, I think Hasselbeck was always on her way out despite Walters’ denial.
To save face, I think all parties involved waited til Hasselbeck secured a new job before announcing her departure. Speaking of her new gig, she’ll head over to FOX News and join the channel’s morning show, FOX & Friends. She takes over Gretchen Carlson who is getting her own afternoon show on the network.
“Elisabeth’s warm and engaging personality made her a star on The View,” said FOX News chairman and CEO Roger Ailes. “She has proven to be an excellent conversationalist, and I am certain she will make a great addition to our already successful morning franchise.”
Have you noticed lately that male pop artists have suited up on their album covers? From Justin Timberlake to NKOTB, everyone is dressing to the nines as of late. Perhaps a Men’s Warehouse conspiracy? LOL. Jumping on the bandwagon are 98 Degrees for their comeback album, 2.0. The foursome look pretty slick in their formal attire complemented with a halo-like effect. In their defense, they are going on tour with NKOTB and God forbid they look sloppy next to them. What do you think of the artwork? A little too safe or perfectly in line with their image?
Speaking of 98 Degrees’ Package Tour mates, NKOTB appeared on The View today. Joey, Danny, Jonathan, Jordan and Danny performed their infectious comeback hit, “Remix (I Like The).” While it wasn’t the same without watching Artemis Pebdani interacting with the boys, it was a great showing. Performing such an up-tempo track live can be tricky and the Boston boys pulled it off. They had the audience and Whoopi Goldberg in a giddy mood. Check out their performance below.
I’m truly flabbergasted. I never expected this from this woman. Deadline.com is reporting that one of the ladies is leaving when her contract expires in August. When the site talked to this co-host, she revealed she was leaving to focus on other projects. ABC released a statement stating this woman was instrumental in the success of The View and said the following.
“We wish her all the best in this next chapter, and are thrilled that we have her for the remainder of the season.” – ABC
With Barbara Walters reportedly scaling back her involvement on the show, and this co-host leaving, the panel is definitely going to look quite differently when the ABC daytime talk show returns for a 17th season in September. Find out who’s leaving below.
Earlier this week, a video was released that showed Nicki Minaj yelling at and cussing out Mariah Carey while sitting at the judges table during American Idol auditions. Seriously, it looked intense and my only hope is that we get to see a bit of what happened when the season actually airs.
This morning, Barbara Walters decided to call her “good friend” Mariah Carey to get the scoop on what happened. Carey informed Walters that what people saw in the video wasn’t even the worst of it. What had her worried was that as Minaj walked off, she said that if she had a gun she would shoot Carey. Yikes. Although Carey isn’t “afraid” of Minaj, she does feel that she is unpredictable and has thus hired extra security to protect her.
Walters shared this news on The View this morning. Nicki Minaj has since responded to these allegations and the fact that Carey spoke with Walters with some harsh tweets. Check out the clip from The View as well as Minaj’s tweets below.
