But not only is she prudish, she just seems like no fun at all. She's a wet blanket and I don't like her as a co-host. I can't believe Barbara picked her. What crack is she smoking?

Bill: There is a war on sex in this country
Elisabeth: As it should be.


You forgot the part that made me laugh:

It's sorta sad. Lis is so young, yet she has already set her role as "uptight, overreaching PTA mom", taking over the role from the dearly departed Maude Flanders. You know it'll be a matter of time before she offers the counterpoint, "Oh won't someone please think of the children!"


She already has used that counterpoint! During her audition when they were discussing gay marriage, she piped in with how she is against it because she is a good Christian woman who struggles with this gay issue every single day and won't somebody please think how gay marriage would affect the children.

Honestly, I can't fault Elisabeth too much for this one, since the rest of the biddies were already up in arms about the story that started the discussion -- the father who allowed his 13-year-old daughter have sex with her boyfriend in the house. "And he even gave her condoms!"

It pains me to say this, but I agree with Bill Maher. I don't have kids, but I think if the daughter was determined to have sex -- or, more likely, had told her father she'd already been having sex -- then he did the right thing by allowing her boyfriend to stay at the house and by giving her condoms. It's not like she's either going to stop having sex or stop seeing her boyfriend just because he puts his foot down.

Many states allow kids to get married with parental consent at age 14, anyway.

Of course, the father was an idiot for abandoning his reasoning and turning the boyfriend in to the police when he found out the BF was 20 instead of 18...

I watched The View for the 1st time ever this week. So far I've seen 2 or 3 episodes [not full episodes as I really can't stomach it]. It's actually THE most discusting show currently on television. I can't stand any of those women & cannot relate to them at all...and I'm pretty sure that being a mid-20's woman with nothing to do during the day that I certainly fall into their target demographic.

It's pure horrorshow...

Oh, Lord. Elisabeth just jumped on her soapbox again. She wants Reebok to end their partnership with Fifty Cent because he is involoved in producing porn. "Until they end this partnership, I am running barefoot." (Audience applauds...) She wants to become the Wal-Mart of The View. I blocked most of it out, although I do have to give props to Joy for calling her out on her prudishness ("I guess I'm not as uptight about porn as you are." I don't think Joy likes Lis all that much. Hee!) Unfortunately, Meredith (who is allegedly posing, or has already posed for Playboy?) is not there today. I wonder what her take on this issue would be...

As much as I hate "The View", I still watch. What is wrong with me? It's like I just have to tune in to see what they will say next that will piss me off to no end. I torture myself, and it can't be healthy.

That said, I did kind of enjoy the reality show segment they did today. As much as I am tired of seeing old reality show contestants come on TV and complain about how awful their experience was/how they were taken advantage of/how everything was edited to portray them badly/how they were screwed over by production, at least today they had reality contestants that I actually liked and hadn't heard from in a while. There wasn't anything terribly interesting, but it is "The View". Basically just "So, what happened after the show ended? What are you doing now?" Bringing out Survivor Rodger to surprise Elisabeth was nice, though. I always liked him. And her...until she started on "The View".

As much as I hate "The View" and am watching it less and less, I did catch today's show. Lis is acting and looking more like Kathie Lee every day with her moralizing, prudishness and soapbox grandstanding. I can hardly wait until her Quarterback hubby pulls a Frank Gifford and does something embarrassing.

But she is catching on, she worked the audience hard in her boycott Reebok rant to get that applause at the end. I noticed that later in the show when Anne Heche was trying to rev the audience up on child abuse, she just got silence.

Good for Joy for standing up to Lis and calling her a prude.

That's obnoxious. She probably already unwittingly supports tons of companies that are partnered with something far worse (according to her morals). What the hell?

AOL had Snoop Dogg in a commercial and he did a Girl's Gone Wild tape . . . Is she going to start an AOL boycott?

Plus, it's really easy to boycott something you probably weren't going to support anyway. I was boycotting McDonalds after I read Fast Food Nation because of how they treated the workers and meat and blah blah blah but it honestly wasn't hard to avoid them because I hate their food. Fast forward a few months and I was outside H&M and found out that they treat their employees just as badly. Did I boycott H&M? Hell no. I needed me some cheap jeans.

So chances are that if we look at all of the clothes in Lis's closet--she's already supporting something worse than porn.

Elisabeth went to BC. She went to an all girls catholic high school in Rhode Island. She is a Republican no doubt. I wouldn't doubt she is prudish. Timmy Hasselbeck comes from the exact same background. Boys high school, BC. Birds of a feather. Believe me, if you wanted an open minded young person on the show, Elisabeth will fail miserably. I am from the same background (not BC mind you, but Catholic college), and believe me, there are lots of Elisabeths wandering around.

Hasn't she ever heard of Nike? Or any of the other zillions of sneaker brands out there?

It's so disconcerting that the one co-host that's in my age group has to be such an uptight prudish Republican. She's got a pole stuck so far up her butt, it's practically coming out of her nose!! I hate her.

I am sure the other Bill (O'Reilly that is) loves Elisabeth, since he was fumed at Pony shoes for having porn stars or whatever modeling their shoes.

I agree with you all that she should just boycott AOL since they had Snoop Dogg do a commercial for them with all his connections to Girls Gone Wild. I don't like that these people are associated with this stuff either, but damn Lis, get a grip. Make your own shoes or something.

And to think I liked her when she was just doing her Style network show The Look for Less; I wish they'd fire her from that show and just let Chip and Pepper Foster run that show. They probably aren't as uptight and prudish as she is.

Wasn't she in a Reebok ad (Survivor tie-in) a while back? I doubt she's still under contract.

Being that I always hated her (for petty reasons - I hate America's Sweetheart™ types, BC is my alma mater's archrival, and the girl kept her breasts through her Survivor weight loss), I'm kinda happy she got on The Poo... now everyone knows who she really is (and I have legitimate reasons for hating her!).

Dis Elisabeth think she was trying out for guest host of The O'Reilly Factor or something? Sheesh, lighten up. What made me cringe (and inadvetently amused) about the lis/Bill Maher exchange wasn't elisabeth's viewpoints, but that she was taking it all so seriously, unlike the other hosts, who at least recognize that Maher is a comedian (albeit, one with a more political edge) and reacted with the approriate sense of humor. And given the "smutty" topics and jokes this show likes to persure, it makes it all the more baffling that someone with such moral grandstanding tendencies as Lis would even want to try out for this show in the first place. This ain't Crossfire honey. This isn't the place for someone with such delicate sensebilities.

Which is a good thing because some of her viewpoints sound rather pecular when you realize that she's means them in all seriousness. I mean does she REALLY think there should be a war on sex? Does she seriously have such moral indignation over what someone does in their spare time (unless the commercials themselves are pornographic, this is irrelevent to the actual partnership.) And of course, Survivor isn't really known as a "moral becon of society" either.

And someone is right. She IS becoming a younger Kathie Lee Gifford by the minute.

Ok, So Reebok uses $.50 in ads and he does porn.
Nike uses sweatshops and child-labor in Southeast Asia to make their stuff.
So does Disney.
And so do hundreds of other Big Name companies.

I'll bet you all Lis backs down on the Reebok. Television is for selling products. The Poo women are sales ladies. Lis is threatening their survival bucks.

Do your frickin' research Lis! Most of those clothes you hawked on Style for Less were made in 3rd world countries in horrendous conditions. You support it all! Yep, more like Kathie Lee every second. And where is she now? Oh, right, dinner theatre in Connecticut and still cutting CD's that nobody buys.

And you will continue to support them so you can get commercial ads. Or is Lis already pimping herself for her 2nd big job (like the other Poo ladies) as a conservative bastion of morality like Anne Coultercrap and Speed Limbaugh, so she can make mega-bucks on the side. Foootball players do have short lives on the field--on the whole.

I bet The Viewmaster and Barbara jumped Lis's ass once the show ended today. I bet the little boycott was unscripted and went a little too far for Bill Getty's comfort level. They'll probably tell her that her little rants affect advertisers -and ABC/Disney is not gonna let some little chippie pontificate against companies that she deems offensive and immoral.

She probably doesn't even wear them (you know she be wearing some Manolo Blahniks or something), so in her mind it ain't ghetto probably.

Yep, football players usually retire around age 35 or whatever since they are always getting hit and banged up. There are a few exceptions like Doug Flutie, but Hasselbeck ain't Flutie.

I bet Hasselbeck is banging groupies two at a time on the road while wifey stays home and knits him socks. I pray for the day her moral grandstanding smacks her square in the face.

I don't see why this show doesn't have any media backlash, what with Star's offensive homophobic viewpoints and Lis's Morality Margority rantings. You would think that ABC, who gave Mahr the boot for making some ill timed remarks about 9/11 would put more of a muzzle on these two bitties. But it all goes under the radar for some reason.

Maybe the media knows that these ladies don't have much influence as Oprah. Remember when Oprah made a comment about never eating beef about mad cow disease, the ranchers were up in arms about it? Also, the fact that Elisabeth's husband is on the View on Monday is stupid. First it was Meredith's son, who's next?

I realize they're trying desperately to find something for Elisabeth to do, but having her host a segment featuring former reality TV stars? This is the best they could come up with?

And I can't believe Zora thought she was fat and needed to lose weight, no matter what random remark some stranger may have made to her. She looked better before, if you ask me.

Barbara specifically asked Elisabeth about being "mad," which led to her rant about Fifty Cent. So my guess is that her little diatribe was all set up and cleared in advance.
