THE VIEW TO A KILL
As if we needed any more evidence that The View sucks ever since Rosie O'Donnell left, here it is... Kathy Griffin, once a heavy-contender to co-host the ABC morning show, has once again been 'banned' from appearing on the failing broadcast. Or, to use her own word "re-banned":
LOL! Kathy's my freakin' hero! If given the chance, I would totally do something to piss off Star Jones, too. BTW, here's a worthy sidebar: didja hear Star Jones' TV show was canned? That's the truth, peeps. Well-deserved, I'd say.
As for Kathy Griffin and Barbara Walters, there's no doubt that Kathy likes to talk about Babs. Back in November when I saw Kathy perform here in Vancouver, she wrapped up her show with some side-splitting stories about, and impersonations of, Ms. Walters.
Back to The View debacle, I don't know if I believe that Barbara Walters completely stays out of the bookings for her own show. I mean, she produces the damn show for cryin' in the soup! She's not gonna easily offer up a soapbox to someone who may be a detriment to her reputation so they can (likely) ridicule her. She might be old, but she ain't too old for ego! It's really too bad though because Kathy Griffin keeps everyone on their tippy toes. And if The View needs anything right now, it's something to get all the co-hosts and the 'view'ers on their collective toes to spark some interest in the show. I pray that Joy Behar gets out while she can - she's the only smart one left.
