This Week's Open Thread, View Line Up 7/29/14 - 8/01/14

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")
  • Thursday -Guest co-host chief investigative reporter Emily Miller ; guests Taylor Schilling (Orange is the New Black); brides from the reality series "Married at First Sight"
  • Friday - Guest co-host Republican strategist Ana Navarro; guest Annette Bening (Shakespeare in the Park's King Lear); Jenny McCarthy looks at the latest in wedding dress trends; Sherri Shepherd unveils wigs from her line LUXHAIR

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?

View ShakeUp

Wow! I go to my homepage today and saw the news that not only is Sherri out but so is Jenny McCarthy!

What the heck has happened? For anyone watching the show, were there clues? Has the show deteriorated that badly that both needed to go? Did you see this coming?

I just don't get it. Sherri - okay she's a ditz and all but I think she had a few more years to go to get the axe. I mean; Hasselbeck was way shittier and stayed 10+ years.

And McCarthy - WOW. She just got there! I'm sure the paint is stil wet on her name on her office door (OK, I exaggerate, but you know what I mean) OMG! I just don't get this.

Wonder if the move is designed to give a more rightward tilt...??? I mean, they have been casting a lot of people from the extreme wing of the Republican Party.

And Whoopi still remains??? I just. don't. get. it.

Oh and Happy Friday, y'all.
