I loved Joy ribbing Sunny today about being left out of the SNL parody: "I'm a former prosecutor... the chickens... the jealousy of her husband... I'll write it for them!" and prodding her with a huge grin on her face. Those two like each other, which is nice to see.
I finally watched the parody. I was expecting to cringe as I tend to find SNL one of the most unfunny things on television, but it was actually not too bad. I got a kick out of Whoopi spraying everyone with water at the end and finishing with them being "five best friends with nothing in common." I just think The View has provided so much material for comedians to really get cutting with, and they always err on the side of being nicer. Where I live comedians would be brutal and the women of The View would have to put up with it. But "Princess of Arizona" was pretty funny and accurate.
Also, agree with Joy: Fred Armisen was better. Joy has a very good sense of humour about herself.
As I've said countless times before, not a great fan of Whoopi, but if she has to be there, her attitude today is my preferred: calmer, more thoughtful, not getting so worked up. She sounded to be a bit under the weather to me too.
