    I think Trinity was so gooped because you can take the girl out of the pageant but not the pageant out of the girl. This episode for her must have been like a dream you have where you make Top 12 and then they start all over again. I did like how swiftly she shut down Gia. Shallow notes: HELLO WILSON AND BRUNO, Gia looked amazing in the work room, and Naomi has got so cute as a boy, because it's not just getting his lips done. I'm glad we usually don't have this format because it felt very American Idol with all the commercial breaks. I also agree that it seemed too manufactured as to who would face who. I'm cynical enough to think that Gia didn't think she could beat Trinity and that's why she picked Naomi. Naomi finally got to shine in this ep, so the format was a blessing for her.

    I didn't mind the intent of Meghan asking for a concise soundbite. It was a lot of legal jargon. I was able to follow it because I am an insomniac and read the Buzzfeed article when it dropped in the middle of the night and then I fell down the Twitter rabbit hole, but it was a lot of information if someone had just woken up to hear about it. I am so tired. But her delivery, like everything, just comes across as hostile and as if she's over the topic.

    MEGHAN'S OWN FATHER said, with reverence, that The View is one of the hardest shows for a politician to do. And this was in '08.

    Trinity said on Twitter that the hardest part of the roast is the writing; this is also what befell Jasmine. There's a lot that goes into writing and delivering a good punchline. Lady bunny was a DJ at a club I frequent and we lip synched a techno version of Mariah Carey's "I Want to Know What Love Is" and it was a MOMENT.

    It was annoying because I think Abby and Sunny were trying to have a real (though difficult) conversation. Abby wasn't being petulant when she asked if 42% of people who want a wall are racist, and Sunny wasn't evasive when she said "that's a good question; I don't know." But then we got three minutes of JOHN McCAIN'S DAUGHTER yelling again.

    I was at a viewing party in Minneapolis (at a club adjacent to First Avenue), so Naomi won the runway by default.
  7. Former Hosts: PERSONAL Life After The View

    I still remember when Rosie was on Oprah and, speaking of her feud with Barbara, said "I had demanded an emotional connection from her that she was not willing or maybe even able to give, and that I had no right to ask for."
  8. I"ve been a quasi-professional comedian for years and Jasmine was that girl who says "My friends think I'm HILARIOUS" and bombs on Open Mic Night. Loved that the other queens understood that stand-up is an art form and you have to have SOMETHING. I am an unabashed Mariah stan and when that song everyone at the viewing party turned and looked at me and I can die now.
  9. I remember in AS2 there was scuttlebutt about Katya throwing lip-syncs vs. Alaska and she denied it. Monique did a fine job, but the song (even it it weren't sung by Ariana) was just way more Valentina's speed. I love Farrah for accusing Gia of just wanting airtime and the producers for showing it. I hate on Real Housewives shows when everyone has to verbally dance around the concept that they're on TV.

    The ladies of "The Real" had their ancestry read and it was much more funny and moving.

    Marlo used to have a YouTube series called Mondays with Marlo, where she interviewed celebrities (usually women over 50). She is a gem. Right now boxy/oversize fitting is becoming trendier, but it's hard to dress like that in a business setting. Sunny dresses great for her figure, though, and I'd guess that not only is her clothing expensive but that she springs for a good tailor, which can make all the difference.

    Right?? It's faint praise, but both Joy and Abby made their points -- Joy was saying how FOX News holds up Trump, and Abby countered that Chris Wallace asked hard-hitting questions in his Trump interview. The best part is that in the background, you could hear MM chirp names of Fox News anchors that she knows (Bret Baier, Harris Faulkner) and neither Joy nor Abby were acknowledging her! The smoking gun thing made Whoopi look like a stateswoman and Meghan like a fool.

    For a while, Joy was in many right-wing articles (I have Apple News at work and she was consistently being mentioned on Fox News, The Blaze, etc). I wonder if that actually cooled off because of the Kid Rock blunder. Not only did Steve Doocey quickly shut it down, but the Fox & Friends anchor re-iterated the apology. Like in most cases, Meghan isn't figuratively reading the room right.

    I didn't mind Abby's rant so much today because it was about a specific thing that she is obviously passionate about. She isn't Meghan, who does this EVERY SINGLE SHOW. Meghan is so petulant and emotional that I think she forgets she's on live TV. She was talking to Joy today like a hormonal teenage daughter. In lighter fare, I liked the topic about having people over. When I had a little house I loved to entertain, and on a few occasions I would have to tell people to lock up when they left because the party was officially over and I was leaving with everyone else to the club! So I am definitely a Sunny, at least with grown-up friends. Interesting that she is an only child and like this and Abby, from a large family, is the opposite.

    Ann Coulter became a lot more emboldened as her fame grew, and at some point she figured out she could make more money by being outrageous than as a reasonable pundit. I think when she first met Joy, she was still in the latter category (she often appeared on "Politically Incorrect" to spar with Bill Maher). I still like she was in the segment; after all, to be praised by both Ann Coulter and Gloria Steinem has to count for something.
