Haven't been taping The View for over a year because I had enough of Elizabeth scratching her arms, legs, and head almost every time she speaks...so annoying and distracting. However, I am home this week and I have made it a point of watching the Hot Topics segment to see what they say about Barbara's medical predicament.
I have no idea who Kaydee Strickland is and never watched The Practice (is that what they said she was on?) but I thought her comments were smart and spot-on today. She came across as savvy, reasonable and likeable! Good candidate for replacing Elizabeth!
Also noticed the glitzy, large, trashy necklaces elizabeth has been wearing and the one Sherri had on today (which is the only one I liked). My guess is that either one of the ladies is coming out soon with a glitzy necklace line on HSN or the show's stylist has been co-opted by some jewelry designer who said these things are going to be the new trend of the Spring and she's jumped on the band wagon and is making Elizabeth and Sherri wear them to be "in style". Blech!
And I see Whoppie is still into her comfy clothing and wild shoes....that's her signature style and more power to her for sticking to it and wearing what she wants. Good for her!
Hope Barbara learned a lesson to not push herself in the future. At her age, she needs to take it easy. Chicken Pox and/or shingles is going to take a toll on her and,, given her slight frame and underweight body, it won't be easy to bounce back quickly and the fall and illness may have made doctors aware of other underlying medical issues. Whatever her dear friend Cindy Adams wrote about her condition was carefully crafted and planned with Bab's direct input!
