VIDEO: Teary Hasselbeck Apologizes to DWTS’ Erin Andrews

UPDATE: Erin Andrews says she’s never received that so-called apology from Hasselbeck.

Seeing Elisabeth Hasselbeck cry is something we’re all used to by now. (Remember that heated debate with Whoopi Goldberg on the use of the “N-word”?) But it’s not often that we see The View co-host cry over something she did.

While discussing the latest Dancing with the Stars events yesterday, the outspoken conservative felt the need to speak out about contestant Erin Andrews’ ballroom wardrobe. Elisabeth - who was for some reason shocked by the amount of skin the contestant had been showing lately (does she not watch the show on a regular basis?) - thought it would be appropriate to bring up the ESPN reporter’s stalking scandal.

“I mean, in some way if I’m [Michael David Barrett], I’m like, ‘Man! I just could’ve waited 12 weeks and seen this — a little bit less — without the prison time!’” Hasselbeck joked.

-There’s a slight possibility that Ugly Betty will live on on the big screen. “It’s something that we’ve been talking about and it’s something that America Ferrera would really love to do.

VIDEO: The View Has Its Own Health Care Debate

“What more do you want?” - Sherri Shepherd questioning

Elizabeth Hasselbeck

the Republicans about the health care reform bill.

Whether you’re for or against it, the HCR bill passed last night by the House probably has you talking. Well, at the very least, it has the ladies of fired up.

Although this morning’s discussion initially focused on the shameful actions some people took during yesterday’s proceedings, today’s hot topic took a heated turn when referenced those who were allegedly “bribed, bullied, and shut out” because they didn’t want to vote “Yes.”

I can only hear Kristen Wiig saying this phrase right now: “Just let me make my point - it’d be easy!”

ABC Taking No Chances with Adam Lambert

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Daytime, Music, Talk Shows, ABC, Gossip, Video,

Now that ABC has decided to allow back into the studio, everything should be business as usual, right? Wrong. Though Glambert appeared on The View Thursday morning, his segment was pre-taped. You know, just in case he decided to grab a random crewman and kiss him in front of the cameras.

The interview was as boring as expected. Lambert then got up to sing “Whataya Want From Me?” All of his dance moves were very appropriate for daytime TV.

And everybody at breathed a sigh of relief. Let us not forget that this network is very much affiliated with the Walt Disney Corporation. D’ya think one has to do with the other?

Whoopi’s Oops on The View

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Daytime, Talk Shows, ABC, Gossip, Video,

It seems Whoopi Goldberg has the same problem I do - telling long-bearded wizards apart. Ian McKellen (that’s Sir to you) stopped by the set of to talk about Lord of the Rings…and ended up getting asked about Harry Potter instead. Specifically, he was asked if he was “coming back” in the next Harry movie.

He explained that he might return to the Potter movies - if he was , the actor who is in them. “But I don’t play Dumbledore,” McKellen remained smooth - leave it to an Englishman. “I play in Lord of the Rings,” he explained to Whoopi. Aw, heck, who can tell the difference under all that facial hair?

Rod Blagojevich and Wife to Appear Together on The View

Posted by Jacci Lewis Categories: Daytime, Talk Shows, ABC, Gossip,

The View cast

Daytime talk show has become the No Excuses jeans of the new millenium. You remember No Excuses jeans, right? No Excuses Sportswear spent the late 80’s and early 90’s capitalizing on infamous media stories by using the women involved in those stories to model their cheesy blue jeans. Donna Rice (disgraced Presidential Candidate Gary Hart’s “Monkey Business” lap mate) and Marla Maples (the reason for Donald and Ivana Trump’s divorce) are just a couple of the flash-in-the-pan media darlings who squeezed into a pair of No Excuses for a quick buck and some extra noteriety.
