Lauren Sanchez Talks About Being “Devastated” Over Losing A Gig On “The View,” Jeff Bezos’ Pancakes, And Having To Be More Private Now

January 25, 2023 / Posted by:

What’s it like to be the World’s Most Glamorous Woman on the arm of the World’s Baldest Billionaire? Well, nobody is really sure because MacKenzie Scott refuses to do interviews about her ex-husband Jeff Bezos. But Jeff’s new lady friend Lauren Sanchez did! And while she may not be quite as glamorous as Mac, Jeff’s “goofy” ass (Lauren’s word, not mine, but also mine) is lucky to have her. Billions of dollars won’t buy you love, but it can buy you a former working girl (in this case, a former Extra correspondent) with a head for business and a bod for sin. According to Lauren’s alma mater, Extra, in her “first solo interview!,” she told The Wall Street Journal (so much for that inside scoop, Extra. How are you gonna keep ‘em on the farm when they’ve seen the inside of Jeff’s Bezos’ space dick?) that losing out on her “dream job” as one of the hosts of The View in 1999, was “one of the most devastating days of [her] life.” But if you think Lauren is still wallowing in pity and regret 23 years later, then you don’t know Lauren at all.

Brooke Shields Called A 1980s Barbara Walters Interview About Her Calvin Klein Ad “Practically Criminal”

December 7, 2021 / Posted by:

I’m not sure if we’ve actually gotten any less appalling as a society since the 1980s, but at least we have the good sense to look back and identify where we were wrong while we forge ahead and continue to be wrong in new and worse ways. Back in 1980, everybody lost their shit over 15-year-old Brooke Shields’ Calvin Klein’s ad campaign in which she declares “you want to know the only thing that comes between me and my Calvin’s? Nothing,” which, if you’re not a dumb kid, is highly risque! And according to Brooke, she was a dumb kid at the time and had no idea why adults were suddenly clutching their pearls at the mere mention of her name. Brooke recently appeared on Dax Shepard’s Armchair Expert podcast and talked about a lascivious 1980 interview she did with Barbara Walters, which opened with Barbara asking the teen what her measurements are, “practically criminal.” OK, settle down Hasselbeck, this has nothing to do with you!

This just in: According to Connie, it pretty much sucked. We’ll have more on this, after the break.

Want To Hear Audio Of Elisabeth Hasselbeck Fake Quitting After Getting Into A Fight With Barbara Walters On “The View”?

April 5, 2019 / Posted by:

If you were disturbed and offended by Rosie O’Donnell‘s comments about having a crush on Elisabeth Hassellbeck the way that she was, then buckle in for some sweet reprieve. Variety–who’s writer Ramin Setoodeh authored the new The View exposé: Ladies Who Punch: The Explosive Inside Story of The View–is finally giving us something juicy in the form of gossip from the set of The View.

Who cares that Rosie wanted to cuddle sweet Elisabeth against her bosom and sigh lovingly? I sure don’t. But you know what I do want to hear? Elisabeth having a total spoiled brat hissy fit meltdown because her respected-journalist boss tried to get her to calm the fuck down on national television. It’s whiny and high-pitched and melodramatic and insane and I loved every second of it and you will too.

Jenny McCarthy Spilled “The View” Tea On Barbara Walters And Whoopi Goldberg

March 20, 2019 / Posted by:

It’s no shock that The View is probably a messy work environment, but The View of today is mild compared to the days when the Don Corleone of lady journalism, Barbara Walters, was trading co-host slots like us queens swap out our RuPaul’s Drag Race fantasy league lineup each week. One of the more controversial picks was when Jenny McCarthy joined the cast because it was right after Jenny became an anti-vaxxer and said vaccinations heightened her son’s autism, which actually improved by allegedly a gluten-free diet and behavioral therapy. Barbara had already popped off on Jenny once, and it sounds like that was a pretty good omen to Jenny’s time on The View.
