All Of The Judges From “American Idol” Are Reportedly Boycotting “The View” After Whoopi Goldberg’s Comments
Here’s something like rain on your wedding day (aka “ironic” for those slow to catch on). After Whoopi Goldberg said the current state of our overly judgmental society began with American Idol, the current roster of judges, Lionel Richie, Luke Bryan, and Katy Perry, started barking against that narrative. However, as we all know, a hit dog will holler. And although there may be some truth to what Whoopi said, the three AI judges are boycotting both Whoopi and The View in a sign of solidarity.
Republican Presidential Candidate Tim Scott’s Appearance On “The View” Got So Unraveled That Whoopi Goldberg Asked The Crew To Step In
Because many of us are clenching our butt cheeks together in foreboding of Donald Trump or Ron DeSantis slipping into the White House to strip large groups of their rights, it’s easy to forget that there are several more Republicans who’ve thrown their hat into the 2024 presidential ring. South Carolina Senator Tim Scott is one of that motley crew of probably far-fetched contenders, and he took to The View yesterday to do that typical Republican thing where they deny the existence of systemic racism and rail against government overreach while simultaneously calling for the government to ban things it shouldn’t concern itself with. And like many segments on The View, Tim’s didn’t go well, and bitch got booed. At one point, it also got so chaotic that Whoopi Goldberg eventually asked a crew member to get Tim to stop talking so they could go to a commercial break.
If Whoopi Goldberg isn’t putting her foot in her mouth on ABC’s The View, are you really watching The View? During yesterday’s live show, the five hosts, Sunny Hostin, Joy Behar, Alyssa Farah Griffin, Sara Haines, and of course, Whoop, started picking apart the term “sugar baby” while discussing Netflix’s new documentary Anna Nicole Smith: You Don’t Know Me. That somehow snowballed into Whoopi dragging American Idol and then getting testy with The View’s producer Brian Teta after he jumped into the conversation to remind her that the show she’s dragging through the dirt is on the same network as her show.
Though Prince Harry and Meghan Markle‘s spokesperson described the recent New York paparazzi pursuit of them (along with Meghan’s mom, Doria Ragland) as a “nearly catastrophic” two-hour long, sometimes 80 mph car chase; the NYPD only called it “challenging,” Mayor Eric Adams said a chase of any length is very dangerous though he found it “hard to believe” it lasted two hours; and photo agency, Backgrid, said the trio was seemingly in “no immediate danger” from their paps but will be investigating further. But, we’ve finally gotten to hear from the most essential voice on any issue: Whoopi Goldberg, of course. On The View yesterday, she shed doubt on Harry and Meghan’s account of the situation, basically saying that her on-air fart smells and backtracking apologies after she farts out an offensive take travel faster than a car can in NYC traffic.
Every now and then while watching The View, you may hear something other than ear-bleeding screeches that sound like Eagles being drowned in boric acid. And yes, I realize that takes away from the show’s infectious charm, but it’s a nice change of pace. Well, on yesterday’s episode, Whoopi Goldberg once again reminded us that sometimes things just fly out of her mouth at the most inopportune of times. But in this case, it was an outdated racial slur followed seconds later by a weird burp that Whoopi acknowledged as just a touch of gas.
Lauren Sanchez Talks About Being “Devastated” Over Losing A Gig On “The View,” Jeff Bezos’ Pancakes, And Having To Be More Private Now
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.
