My hot topics

A couple things are annoying me, aside from my persistent cough:

Senseless bitchfest:
The entire "cast" of The View annoys me. It's like a daily bitch fest with no real purpose.

"Hot Topics" my ass. It's just a chance for a bunch of women to see who can out-bitch whom.

Elisabeth Hasselbeck just annoys the CRAP out of me. On a regular basis.

And I only see clips of the show on CNN.com.

I think they need to bring Omarosa on and let her be a guest host for one day and let her have a verbal smackdown with little Liz.

Now THAT would be fun to watch.

Stupid people:
Anyone see a photo of Eva Longoria-Parker lately? She's [GASP!] gained a few pounds. I know, tragic isn't it? Well apparently all of Hollywood is just UP IN ARMS over this travesty...and so, Eva's "people" issued a STATEMENT addressing her weight gain.

Essentially it says that she cut her hair and gained a few pounds for her role on Desperate Housewives, because in the new season her character, Gabby, is a "worn out mom of two". And, apparently, she'll also be wearing butt pads and stomach pads to make her fatter.

What? A statement had to be issued because some too-thin actress gained a few pounds. Give me a break!!

Oh and I love that in order to portray a mom she has to be fat and unattractive. Yes, that's a great image to portray for moms everywhere. If you're a mom, you can't be glamorous -- you must be frumpy.

Please.

Stupid people just really annoy me.

[Oh, here's a link to a photo of the newer, "fatter" Eva. Whatever.]

  1. Oh my goodness! I JUST wrote about this very same thing! The whole Eva looks frumpy cause her hair is short and gained 2 pounds. Ugh.

    You're right, nice portrayal of moms.

    A big thumbs down on all of this nonsense.

  2. Elizabeth annoys me, too.

    And funny you said that about the whole View cast. I used to stay at home and watch the view for the first 15 minutes of Hot Topics before going to work. (With the time difference, it's on at 9:00 a.m. here.) Lately, I haven't been inspired.

    Barbara Walters drives me crazy.
    But forgive me, I really like Whoppi, Joy and Sherri.

  3. I'm glad that Whoopi is on the show because, even though I don't watch the show anymore, I watch for highlights with her. She doesn't let people get away with stuff.

    And the Eva Longoria thing is just so annoying. Boo you, ABC and Hollywood.

  5. The View is terrible. I cannot believe it is still airing.

  6. The View needs to get rid of Elisabeth and get a stronger Republican on there--one that won't cry and back down when the four Democrats talk down to her and shush her like a child. It would be an interesting show if Elisabeth could hold her own.

    Joy Behar has to constantly remind the audience that she’s a comedian because her jokes, which someone else writes for her, ARE NOT FUNNY. The Hot Topics segment is pretty much fifteen minutes of her Bush/Cheney bashing. (As insanely popular as that may be, it gets old.)

    That show is lame. I can’t even watch it anymore. At least not without yelling at my t.v.

  7. t.w.i.t. -- i agree that they need to get rid of elisabeth...but i also think they need to get a more balanced panel, which would mean getting rid of maybe the very unfunny Joy and bring on 2 or 3 "fresher" people...who have differing (political) viewpoints. say, i don't know, 1/2 dems and 1/2 republicans?

    of course, in a perfect world, ABC would just cancel The View and all would be right with the world again! :)
