  1. Meghan McCain: "Both Sides" Wannabe Tough Chick

    You're not alone in this, so I guess I'd better make myself scarce too ;-) But yes, I liked her too for the reasons you did...trying to modernize the stone age Republican ideals and represent a new generation of conservative voters. Yes, she grew up privileged and can't really connect with "regular" folk on a personal level, but that is obviously something out of her control and I honestly feel it shouldn't be held against her. What WAS in her control is having the means, connections, and finances to actually educate herself in politics and do more than coast off of her family name, and actually BE a political analyst or pundit. When I heard she was going to be on the View, I was actually looking forward to seeing her side of things being a young Republican in an constantly evolving world. But we've gotten is the same old dog whistles, talking points, whataboutisms and rhetoric that Faux News has been spouting for years. Tack on a generally nasty attitude and refusal to bend even the slightest with topics, even outside of politics, and you've got Ms. McCain. I'm truly disappointed and exhausted by her as well.
  2. "The View": Week of 1/7/19

    Okay, I am almost ashamed at how HARD this made me laugh! I wish someone had enough balls to say that to her the next time she’s giving free “advice” to the Dems about winning. Her head would probably explode.
  3. "The View": Week of 1/7/19

    I haven’t watched in a while now(just coming here to see you all’s amazing comments 😁), so I’m relying on you all to let me know how Megan “megsplains” Trump’s self serving statement last night. I’m guessing a whole lot of “but Obama/immigration crisis/if Dems wanna win/his base” crap.
  4. Surviving R. Kelly

    I think this is more about morbid curiosity rather than support. Like I mentioned before, most of the generation that streams music and knows nothing about that life involving cassettes and CDs and whatnot weren’t even born when R.Kelly was at peak popularity, or were infants at least. Now they hear about the Pied Piper of Pedophilia and are like, “What’s the big deal about this old dude’s music?” So they check it out. Does it put a little fraction of money in his pocket? Unfortunately, yes. But I don’t think it’s a long term thing.
  5. Surviving R. Kelly

    I got that impression too. Especially when Azraiel’s father said when they went to his concert, fully aware of his reputation but insisted that because they were there they wouldn’t allow anything to happen. And obviously it did ☹️
  6. Surviving R. Kelly

    I debated on watching this because I knew it was going to be triggering as hell...and it has been...but the one thing I am surprised at is how unsurprised I am at the extent of this pig’s abuse. I’ve never been an R.Kelly fan...I’m a teenager of the 90s, and a Black woman, so his music was played heavily on every radio and at every house party or event I went to, but I never really connected to it like most of my peers did. There was just something about him that seemed “off” that I couldn’t put my finger on. Then the Aaliyah thing happened, and at the time no one really “knew” how young she was (which we now know she was deliberately marketed that way), and my side eyeing of him increased. Confirmation came with the pee tape, and I was like “Yup, that’s it.” I haven’t voluntarily listened to his music since. The only thing that really shocks me about this is how complacent and enabling that the adults around him were. How everyone KNEW what was going on and no one anonymously reported him, or at the very least pulled him aside to say “dude you are DEAD wrong for this.” Instead of stepping in, they looked the other way or walked away. Like his ex-wife said, there’s no way he would have been able to get away with what he has without help. It truly makes me sick that no one was looking out for these girls. Yeah, a teenager should not be near anyone’s tour bus or hotel room or whatever, but (most) teens think they’re invincible and that nothing can happen to them. I think about some of the riskier situations I put myself in at that age and shudder at what could have happened. You can’t pass judgement on a teenager’s thought process with an adult brain. And an adult brain KNOWS better, which is why it makes me so damn angry when people cape for him or defend him or call the girls “fast” or try that “separate the art from the artist” nonsense. A molester is a molester, period. Finally, I’m wondering what the blowback is going to be for this for him. The millennials aren’t enamored by him or his music the way my generation (younger Gen-Xers ) are or were. Most of them are too young to remember how big he was in the 90s or really know his music outside of hearing him at an Auntie’s party. He’s already threatened to sue. Looking forward to the conclusion tonight.
  7. I’ve wondered about this myself...there was a rumor that he was a former Yankee but that turned out not to be true, so I’m real curious to know what he does for a living/retired from. Danielle said that the next guy she married had to be rich, so he has to be doing all right financially. That being said, I really doubt he jumped into this blindly. Him and Danielle were together long before she was back on the show, lived together and everything. He said to Page 6 that she “changed” when she signed onto HWs again, but Danielle has been showing us her crazy since season one, where her own daughter verified in that Broadly article that she was being her authentic self. So he had to know what she was like before he asked her to marry him. I don’t want to think that an established man in his 60s would be completely led into a bad decision by his penis, but I guess power of the p***y and all that. If these shows are a true reflection of who she is, I don’t really see her having any other redeeming qualities other than being moderately attractive and having a great body. On a purely superficial note, she did look beautiful in her gown ( a bit much for a beach wedding but it was nice) and that dusty rose color of the bridesmaids dressed were nice too. And because it can’t be said enough, her daughters are stunning.
  8. This is why I can’t hate on Danielle. She is clearly a very damaged person and desperately wants that picture perfect sitcom life, because it would be the total opposite of what she’s had. The problem is that all of her issues block whatever flickers of normalcy that come her way. She needs some intense therapy. I read that same article, it was on Broadly(I can’t figure out how to link it, but it came up via Google). I did feel bad for her girls. None of TPTB or the reality stars think about how their behavior affects the kids on the show. Despite all of her crazy, Danielle seems to have raised two amazing daughters who fought like hell to be everything their mother is not. That’s not the first time I’ve seen kids of dysfunctional parents do that. I think that Christine knows that her and Jillian are really the only ones who have Danielle’s back, which is why she subjected herself to that shitshow of a bachelorette party. Her aura of class and beauty outshined women twice her age in that place.
  9. "The View": Week Of 12/10/2018

    Ah okay, I thought I was leaving something out, thanks for the correction. And agreed, she is definitely iconic in the media business, and is hopefully living out her golden years peacefully.
  10. "The View": Week Of 12/10/2018

    Agree with this, I don’t think she’s had anything “done,” and if she has, it’s incredibly subtle. Her appearance hasn’t changed a whole lot over the years, and if you see candid or HD photos of her, you can see some fine lines here and there. She’s always been very open about her rigorous albeit expensive beauty regimen (I remember years ago she said she used some $400 face cream all over her body 😳) and fitness routine, doesn’t drink or smoke, etc. I wish more people in that industry would realize that it is possible to grow old gracefully and you don’t have to look like a wax doll to be beautiful. I’m looking at you, Leah. Love you forever, but she destroyed her natural beauty with all that extraness. I’ve been curious about BW for a while now, especially with the direction the show has gone in the past few years. She’s in her late 80s/90s right? I wonder if she’s dipped out Estelle Getty style aka battling some sort of health issue in private and staying out of the public eye. She has created quite a legacy and yes, the View is a big part of that. It’s the longest running talk show on TV at the moment. Someone who values her legacy should step into the role of not letting this nonsense sully it in any way.
  11. "The View": Week Of 12/10/2018

    So much this! I too did not want to express my thoughts about her grieving because I know how hard it is to lose a parent (my mother died when I was 18 years old) but I truly think Meghan thrives off of being so public about her grief and wallows off of the attention. Any time anyone waxes poetic about her father on the show you can physically see her puff up like a peacock with its tail on full display. Her entire identity is wrapped up in her father and she has tried to build her fame off of that since he was in the spotlight. My best friend very recently lost her father after a long illness. While her and her family weren't as prepared as Meghan's family for his death, because they knew it was coming, they started the grieving process before he passed away. They started preparing for his memorial service, negotiating how his business was going to be handled after he passed, what to do with his possessions, etc. And she doesn't have close to what Meghan has in terms of money and resources, and not even close to as much time as she had with her father. When my best friend's father died, I watched her cry, plan the funeral, wrap up her affairs, and keep it moving. This is not to say she doesn't miss him or cry over him, but life has to go on, and she's not a raging bitch to everyone around her because she's grieving. And the thing is that's how you know that Meghan now is what Meghan has always been, before her dad getting sick and before he passed away. Whether she moves back to Arizona or to a ranch in Montana with her douchy husband with their guns and dogs, she needs to resign from this show and find something else to do with her time. She literally will never have to worry about money for the rest of her life, so she doesn't have to work. Maybe start a foundation in her father's name for cancer research or , or write a book, or basically NOT BE ON THIS SHOW. Tinkerbell, lots of positive vibes to you and your family in dealing with everything with your Dad <3
  12. "The View": Week Of 12/3/2018

    I worked at a company where the environment was like this, except the toxic person was the owner/ceo. The whole day was contingent upon his mood, and when he was in a bad one, he was in a BAD one, and all of us as employees felt the wrath. It was awful. And yet, I ALMOST get why we had to deal, because he was the one who signed our checks. For the life of me, I don’t understand why they keep Meghan on. What’s the benefit? She is nasty to everyone, and makes everyone uncomfortable, she has no extra pull in terms of getting guests on...I just don’t get it. The ratings can’t possibly be that much better since she’s been on, and now that both Abby and Ana are there on a regular basis, she is completely unnecessary. There are not one but two conservative Republicans on the panel, and both of them are capable of having a conversation and disagree without their head exploding from rage and sitting there pouting when they don’t get their way. I don’t want Joy to leave either but I honestly wouldn’t blame her if she did. She’s almost 80 and has had a lucrative entertainment career...why should she have to put up with that bratty bitch? Let the Trumpsters bask in their “victory” is she does decide to say “fork this shirt” (tm: The Good Place) and walk. Her health and peace of mind is more important than The View. I think I’m done with this show too...I’ve been watching since 2001 and vibe has never been this bad. There were disagreements but the tension now is palpable through the TV, it must be worse in person. It’s not what it was and it’s uncomfortable to watch. I’ll keep coming here to see if anything of substance happens or if one of my fave celebrities are on, or simply because all of your comments are awesome 😎

    Is anyone else hoping that’s Fred Armisen will make an appearance at Joy’s tribute tomorrow dressed as her and doing the impression 😁?
  14. Meghan McCain: "Both Sides" Wannabe Tough Chick

    I actually wouldn’t mind meeting this Meghan, she seem more loose and fun. Not the pussy bow around the neck, squeezed into her skirt, angry, tight faced harpy we see every day. I don’t know if she feels she HAS to be “into politics” because of her father,but she is clearly miserable on this show and has been for awhile now, and is not doing a great job of hiding it. If you have to cry between breaks it’s probably not a good fit. If she insists on a TV career, she should be on a fluffy pop culture show talking about current stars, reality tv, etc. I’m sure she’d have no problem researching those topics and no blue cards authored by her husband would be necessary. Oh, and it should be in her contract that she can never utter the words “Republican,” “Conservative,” “Trump’s Base,” or “my father” while on the air 😁
  15. "The View": Week Of 11/26/2018

    I didn’t understand her argument at all (not that she’s ever coherent with her arguments anyway). Sunny is right...climate change is not a left or right issue. Unless the right has shelves of bottled clean air stacked away somewhere, we are ALL affected by it. People like Meghan cannot see past the end of their noses. And she’s so friggin rude. Screaming at the audience to stop clapping so she could talk? Really? So she’s rude to the staff, her coworkers, the guests, AND the audience and she still has a job? I guess she’s going to have to say something REALLY stupid a la Roseanne style to finally get kicked off. With all of her temper tantrums, it’s coming.
