It's Time

I have been putting this off for awhile but I've come to finally decide that it's time for me to end this blog.

You all can never know how you've affected me. Many of us knew each other for Winnie's "Watching the View" site. When her site closed, we eventually ended here and continued our friendship. It was good times.

When I started this blog, I had a lot of time and energy. Most of all, I had PASSION. I no longer have that.
When Rosie O'Donnell left The View, we still soldiered on, coming here to express our thoughts and share certain frustrations with the show.
Rosie returned, and I think a lot of us were excited. Unfortunately for me, I have already started to grow weary of the show - mainly because of Whoopi. Her moderating "skills" leave a lot to be desired, her monopolizing the show is annoying and her ridiculous jokes are tiresome. I'm already starting to tune it out. Again.

It has been a pleasure reading and participating with you all on this forum. I know I will miss it. You all helped me get through the most difficult time in my life after the death of my husband. You were there for me to lean on and provided much comfort during a time my world came apart. I am forever indebted to you for that.

I will still be around; I can be reached at TheViewWatch@gmail.com. I also post at previously.tv's View forum. If you do as well, feel free to share your username so we can maintain that connection.

If you plan to open your own View blog, post it here so we can follow you. Also if you would like to have contact with other members, shoot me an email. I won't give out another person's address, but I can certainly contact them and pass on your information.

This blog will stay up until 10/25/14.

Thanks for being a part of my life these past 6 years. I will never ever forget it.

I hope you all had a great weekend. I took a break from the blog; too much going on. The month of August was not too great and right now my car is not running (please don't get me started but long story short - after paying a little over a thousand to the mechanic, my fuel pump went out a week after getting it out of the shop. I am not a happy camper. Anyway, enough of my troubles....

I hope you all had a great weekend.

I did not get a chance to watch Sherri's final show. I do feel it was a little weird them airing it on a Monday. And weirder that it was pre-taped. But whatevs. I guess The View is confusing enough and I probably shouldn't even try to make sense out of it.

I know I have been critical of Sherri for awhile but I do wish her the best. She's a single mom and seems to have a thirst for working and providing for her child. I am not so sure she is doing it in the right way, but then what do I know. Clearly something is working because she's set to do a role in Broadway's Cinderella and I'm at home writing about her. Soooo.....

Bye Sherri. Good luck to you.

I hope you all had a great weekend.

I'm still reeling from Whoopi yesterday. Did not care for her comment about it being OK for a man to hit a woman if she hits him. But worse was the manner in which she made her argument; talking over people, interupting, yelling, the "I'm sorry, but..." bit and then launching into an even louder tirade. UGH. I hope this is not the way she will be next season. Guess since Barb is gone she's more free to be overbearing to her co-hosts. Anyway....

The View schedule for this week is as follows:

  • Tuesday - Guest co-hosts Lara Spencer and Juliet Huddy
  • Wednesday -Guest co-host Lauren Sanchez ; guests guests Tara Reid and Ian Ziering ("Sharknado 2"); Aubrey Plaza ("Life After Beth")
