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....

This is it; the day many of us have been waiting for. The new season of The View starts today and ROSIE IS BACK!

Here is the schedule for the week:
  • Monday - Season Premiere
  • Tuesday - Kirsten Dunst, Rachael Ray
  • Wednesday - Neil Patrick Harris, Tim McGraw
  • Thursday - Jessica Chastain
  • Friday - Billy Crystal

I am so excited. And nervous. Okay, are we ready?

This Week's Open Thread, View Line Up 8/12/14 - 8/15/14

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.

The View is now on a Summer Break. When they return, it will be new hosts (Rosie!!! and two more) This is schedule for the remainder of the week, (all are reruns):

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")

Yep. She's baaaaaack!!!!!

It's official. Rosie O'Donnell is indeed returning to The View!!!
The show tweeted out the news today saying, "ABC confirms Rosie O'Donnell returns as co-host of #TheView w/ moderator Whoopi Goldberg for Season 18."

The host is back after being on the show before from 2006 to 2007. While on the show, she famously clashed with Donald Trump and even some former "View" co-hosts like Elisabeth Hasselbeck.
I am so happy for her. I think she wanted - and needs this.
And yes, I will be watching. Will you?

Rosie's View?

I don't believe in a lot of media driven rumors. Many times I hear speculation about something, I sort of dismiss it until definite confirmation. So when I hear that prior host Rosie O'Donnell was being considered as a replacement host, I rolled my eyes in disbelief.

However, after reading Roger's post (thanks Rog!) and following his link to an article on TMZ, I'm kinda starting to maybe believe it:
Rosie O'Donnell is currently in "active negotiations" with "The View" to come back to the program ... sources in connection with Rosie and the production tell TMZ.

We're told Rosie's people are discussing money and other terms with execs from the beleaguered show. She's definitely interested in coming back if the money is right, and we're told the negotiations are far along.

We're told the deal could be sealed shortly and the announcement could be made as early as tomorrow.

Could it be? Is this really happening? I checked Rosie's site and she has not posted in a week. Not unusual, for sure, but makes me wonder if she is keeping a low profile until the official news.

I, for one, am THRILLED. I really think if she rejoins, it may provide some closure (and a new opening!) for her considering how things ended the last time. A plus is Hasselbeck is gone. A double plus is Bill Geddie is too (makes you wonder if that was one of the terms for her return...)

Anyway, as they say, stay tuned. How do you feel about a Rosie return?
