    Rafael you should write for this show. Your knowledge of the show's history with your casting ideas for characters is just amazing.. I would love to see how you would write for Kim, Shane and their kids. I hate what the show did to Theresa and the other legacy children.

    I have no problem with what Whoopie said about we are all immigrants here. You are also correct in your post but you have to remember that people of color are constantly told they don't belong here and therefore should not enjoy the benefits of being American citizen. What constitutes who is a citizen goes back to slavery when Black people were three fifth of a person and were not given citizenship. The 14th amendment gave Black people citizenship and it also gave you citizenship as well who is a descendant of European immigrants.

    Thanks for bringing that up. Joy should have brought that up and counter Whoopie's nonsensical rant about fairness. I get tired of the panel acting like Whoopie is so knowledgeable about subjects she knows nothing about. Sunny continual shading of Nutmeg is giving me life. Megan's soliloquy about the state of her party left me cold. Even when she makes sense, I just can't side with her.

    Bitterness Thread

    This is the story that I have always wanted for the Kiriakis clan. The show has such a rich history and they refuse to use it to give us great stories. Anjelica should be a part of your story manipulating Victor Jr against Adrienne because of Alexander. Also, I think the Kiriakis twins were fraternal twins. Their biological mother JJ could come back to help Adrienne deal with Victor Jr.

    All Episodes Talk: Now We're Talking

    I think she relied a lot on him and he took advantage of that to put his vision instead of hers. Plus, the show was making lots of money including Barbara. I think the money kept her in line..
  6. Also, I think they married Shelle and gave them a baby too soon. They should have had dynamic stories before going that route. People said the same thing about Wilson. The show has always had a problem in balancing stories and couples like back in the day. Even if you were not a fan of a particular couple, they usually had a way of having different couples to appeal to everybody..

    All Episodes Talk: Now We're Talking

    Exactly, I think the big difference is that the women of the talk are in control of that show. Bill Geddie used to always encourage the ladies to make sparks and would use his protegee Elizabeth to make sparks in her debates with Rosie, he brought an unhealthy vibe to the show that translated into ratings. In the short run, the suits made lots of money but in the long-term, it damaged Barbara's vision of women of different stages in life getting together to chat and support one another.

    All Episodes Talk: Now We're Talking

    Sharon was nasty to Aisha, she threw shade and would roll her eyes but it was never on the same level as Megan's daily temper tantrums. Plus, Aisha never let her rattle her. Sharon was intimidated by Aisha's intelligence just like Whoopie is with Sunny on the view. Sharon also orchestrated the firing of Leah and Holly from the first season. I do get what you are saying in that there is a certain malevolence with the view and that started when Barbara Walters ceded control of the show to Bill Geddie. The view became a bitch fest after that, it used to be more like the talk during the early seasons; girlfriends having coffee while discussing topics both light and heavy. I remember Meredith used to have a paper and she would read something from it and the ladies would discussed, giving their views. It was more natural that way.. If they discussed politics, it was never right versus left.

    After Megan called Joy a bitch, they went to break, the producers told the ladies to play nice. When they came back from the break, Megan said that she and Joy always called each other bitches and that we the audience were snowflakes that needed to toughen up. Joy who I adored, disappointed me said we should watch the talk if we wanted to see a lovefest. It was unnecessary and mean. Joy did not have to go along with that degenerate Megan.

    Meghan McCain: "Both Sides" Wannabe Tough Chick

    She will be miserable over there, if she signs a new contract. Sunny, Joy and Ana will not have anything to do with her off the show. Megan wants to be accepted by them. Whoopie may baby her at work but I doubt Whoopie socializes with her after work. Whoopie knows not to bring Megan into her private life, she is a snake in the grass.

    He never abused her sexually or physically, but he has played with her emotions and that is devastating to a child. Megan wrote him a letter imploring her father to reign in his awful children who are hellbent on destroying her happiness. She also asked him to not speak to the media and what does he do, he gives her private letter to the media. Megan has every right to cut him off..

    She is a hit and miss. I think she is charismatic, beautiful with potential. If she invests in acting classes and studies her craft, she may have a future. I could see Lee Daniels working with her again. He hired Gabourey, put her on Empire after having worked with her on Precious.

    During one of the pre-tape shows last week, Sharon threw shade at the View about their treatment of one another. I think Sharon was referencing Megan calling Joy a bitch live on the air.. I am not Sharon's fan but she was right in that nobody has been that disrespectful on the air. Sheryl said they may get short , snippy and impatient with one another at times but it is always backstage away from the viewing audience.

    Of course! people are allowed to dislike her. I don't think anybody has said that if you dislike Megan you must be a racist..

    Sunny listed the things that Pelosi has said about them in public. Like Sunny said women of color are watching and gauging Pelosi's treatment of these women. Sunny tried to defend the ladies but Whoopie would not let her talk. This too shall pass, families fight and get over it.. This is a generational rift with both sides digging in their heels, nothing more..
