|FIERCE, BUT TRUE TO HER BELIEFS|
We all know Rosie was unhappy eventually because it wasn't her own show, but my God, was it terrific. It also made a true star out of Elisabeth, who held her own every single time. She also became extremely sympathetic after so many "beating-attempts" by Rosie. AND THEN IT ALL CRASHED.
IT WAS 2007.
No more Meredith, Debbie, Star, Lisa, Rosie. Sherri Shepherd started as a guest co-host. Barbara now had to be on every day. The boat was filling with water. Without Rosie, the show instantly became average.
I loved Sherri Shepherd from all her "Ellen" show appearances, and was ecstatic to see her. The show needed and needs her warmth and humor. She smiles and I smile back. I'm gad they added her when they did, or I would have been gone.
I first saw Joy Behar as Helen Reddy's opening act in the late 70s. She was really funny and sharp. I thought she was terrific and I still do. Because of all the controversy over the years, Joy gets ignored. Her show on HLN was good, and CNN really blew it when they put on Piers Morgan instead of Joy. She has been the anchorpiece of "The View." Not Barbara. I'm sick that "allegedly" the demographics-police decided it was time for Joy to go. Joy---Go on the road when you want; write books; do other TV; and go all around the world with Steve. It's all your choice now. Thank you for everything.
AND THEN THERE WAS WHOOPI. THANK GOD. PART THREE TOMORROW
