Up at 7. Homemade breakfast. The daily morning news programs. Complain about the pool noise. CNN. Dinner by 6pm.
If I wasn’t terminated I’d say I was retired.
Geez it’s getting really good around here, eh?
Today’s excitement came when Barbara Walters told Elisabeth Hasselbeck to calm it down.
I’m not joking.
Elisabeth got really passionate about the FDA possibly approving the Morning After Drug as an OTC for persons above the age of 18.
Her stance on it was that the moment sperm hit’s the egg there is life. I’m not going to argue or put my belief on here, but guest star host Lisa Loeb knocked that thinking down right away and a “You go girl” may have slipped from my mouth.
From then on out it was Joy, Babs, and Lisa against Elisabeth and her stance on the issue. Elisabeth was this close to knocking Joy out of her seat. Pretty exciting stuff. They had to cut to commercial once Barbara got all Bossy on it and was putting Elisabeth in her place.
Once back from the commercial a teary Elisabeth was hugging and apologizing and being grateful for her job to Babs.
Why was she apologizing? Was she scared that she’d be tossed out like Star?
Seriously, I thought that’s what The View was all about. I know I’ve been unemployed for a week and just got back into the show, but isn’t that its theme? Different opinions?
Even though I disagreed with Elisabeth, it is rare that you can see that much passion on an issue. She had some good points. Didn’t sway me an inch, but still…why was she shut down?
It’s called hot topics for a reason and when I remember it, Barbara is the one that brought up the subject and asked the table where they stood. Didn’t she know ex-Survivor was super conservative? Besides that, isn't the major point being able to sit up there and let your view be told? Isn't that part of it? But Babs is the Boss.
But what got me thinking more is how great it was to see women up there who on a daily basis look like they get along and agree, go into total chaos over a very strong women’s topic.
