    Season 16 Discussion

    Am I the only one who thinks Adam is an even bigger asshole now more than ever? He was the only coach who didn’t stand up and cheer for Maelyn when she won, despite his glowing accolades for her on Monday’s show. I just don’t understand him.

    Season 16 Discussion

    I saw Darius Rucker open for Brad Paisley and he was the best part of the concert. I could’ve gone home after Darius played (and before Brad took the stage) and it would’ve been fine with me. He’s THAT damn good! I don’t get the BTS thing either. I have seen them perform on at least three other TV programs and I don’t know what it is about that group, but between not being able to understanding the lyrics to not being able to identify/keep up with the melody of at least one song, I guess my age is showing! I’m curious: when was Carson sassy? I love him and give him all of the passes in the world to be sassy, but I’m bummed I missed it.

    Season 16 Discussion

    Amen! Maybe it’s the teacher in me, but because Blake has made a point of explaining how enunciation is a big deal for him (and I agree 100% with him on that), I’m always surprised that his singers don’t improve in that one specific area. By the end of the school year, my students are almost always proficient in the areas that I am passionate about. They’ve gotten comfortable with public speaking and/or presenting to the class. They have also eradicated the word “like” from their vocabulary. It takes a minute, but it can be done!

    Season 16 Discussion

    Why are most of the “singers” sounding so freakin’ awful as each week goes on? Cheesy song choice aside, Gyth was absolutely terrible tonight, but I had second hand embarrassment for Carter (“Take Me To Church”). WTF was that?!?! Is it the sound engineers or the people themselves? Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

    Amber: A Rill Woman Goes to Gel

    I was on my way to the gym yesterday and noticed the license plate of the car in front of me. I have never wished for a traffic light to stay red for as long as possible in my entire life! I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to get a photo in time. My sole motivation of taking the photo was to share it with you fine folks and hope that you laugh as hard as I did when I saw it! Happy Monday!

    Except Chelsea (and Cole)

    I think it's pronounced "Stoo-pid." 😂💚

    Teen Mom 2: Small Talk

    I think we are related...or perhaps our moms are?!?! One Christmas, when we were five years old (and vaccinated!), my brother and I had chicken pox. We developed it within a day or two of each other and our family holiday plans went out the window. I'd love to see Chelsea handle "skipping Christmas" one year if her kids came down with something similar!

    Teen Mom 2: Small Talk

    Re: Chelsea and having her babies so close together I have a twin brother - no other siblings. For the record, we don’t get along...and we are only three minutes apart! He got married last August and I wasn’t even invited. True story. Just because kids are close in age, that doesn’t solidify or guarantee a damn thing! My parents had freakin’ twins right out of the gate! I’ve heard my mom’s stories about her having to crawl on her hands and knees to get to the bathroom at 5am so we wouldn’t see her from our cribs. (Older house in Detroit = no bathroom in the master bedroom) She loves to be semi-snarky to parents (just the ones who bitch about how hard it is to have one baby) about the times she and my dad had to do XYZ to make sure they didn’t lose their minds. From waking up extra early to get us both ready to the inevitable “when one is sleeping, the other one would be wide awake” anecdotes, she’s got a ton of stories about raising multiples and how hard THAT was! She woke up early one morning to bathe us, dress us up (no matching outfits ever - thank God!) and have us ready to go and have our photos taken at Olan Mills (#80s kid!). My dad was in the kitchen and my mom was getting dressed, but we were both in the playpen. My mom heard a loud cry, came out to see what was happening and nearly lost her mind when she what had happened. I had bitten my brother on the cheek (he probably deserved it!) and he had a big red bite mark on his face. Couldn’t have our photos taken anymore! All of that work and an early wake up call down the drain. I should ask her to watch Chelsea’s segments as I’d love to get her two cents on that!

    S09.E16: He Didn't Look Like a Prince

    Preach! It’s also the insurance assholes who won’t approve anything either. I’ve been taking the same medication (in the benzo family) for my insomnia for over seven years, but it was denied last month despite two appeals from my doctor. I tried Ambien, Lunesta, Trazodone and every other RX created for insomnia. Nothing worked. Nothing. My doc knew enough about other RXs and side effects, so she suggested that I try Klonopin. It’s usually prescribed to treat seizures, panic disorder, and anxiety, but one major side effect is severe drowsiness. It was the only thing that worked for me. I was actually sleeping! Per my insurance company’s protocol, I have an appointment next week to see a neurologist who specializes in sleeping disorders. Back on topic: Chelsea used Profile by Sanford after she had Watson. Once they learned she was using their products, MTV was there to film a meeting with Chelsea agreeing to partner with them. It’s some obscenely priced pre-packaged meal & beverage system. I perused the website for 20 seconds and it reminded me of a ridiculously expensive Jenny Craig or NutriSystem.

    S09.E16: He Didn't Look Like a Prince

    I don’t even like that David’s name is mentioned or appears on screen. Maybe it’s the teacher in me, but any type of attention is the last thing he should be getting. Referencing him each week, even by name, still reminds viewers of his presence and/or link to the show. That doesn’t reinforce MTV/Viacom’s alleged zero tolerance policy of his behavior.

    Season 16 Discussion

    Kelly said “If you ever want to sing with me, just let me know” and Beth quickly said she did. I interpreted that as Kelly offering Beth a gig as a background vocalist on tour or in the studio since that’s her background. Re: Jimmy & Carson’s quick chat on Monday If you go back and watch it, you’ll notice Jimmy acting like he has to talk to Carson before they went to commercial break immediately after the bro-high five/hug. I am 99.9% convinced that Jimmy said “Hey, let’s go to another rave.” I clearly and distinctly heard Carson say “Oh hell yeah; let’s go/we should go to Vegas.” I am simply horrified at how awful the singers have been during the Cross Battles. Horrified. Everyone sounded so bad! I couldn’t even recognize most of the songs - it was that bad! We know the band is loud and tends to overplay. The sound engineers are awful at their jobs, but oh my God. So bad. The only person who sounded like they were able to sing was Rebecca (“Any Man of Mine”).

    Catelynn (and Tyler)

    Zero joking aside, with the hair extensions, fake lashes, overdone fillers and bad make up job, she kind of reminds me of a heavier version Farrah.
  13. I STILL feel awful for Nattie about that whole shit storm!
  14. I saw it too. What’re the incredible odds that the person who slipped it past security (or smuggled art supplies into the stadium) happened to have a seat so close where the Miz & Shane had their match?! I was so excited to see that sign! I tried to take a photo of it on my TV, but whatever gold colored paint/markers they used for the lettering made it impossible to take a decent photo. I couldn’t get rid of a garish glare or reflection on my camera. I wonder how many signs were confiscated at the entrances? I’d bet that Vince told MetLife security to throw away any signs referencing John Oliver. I would be surprised if he didn’t do that!

    All Episodes Talk: Now We're Talking

    Damn you, Aunt Becky! I really, really, really enjoy Jodie Sweetin at the table. It would be such a shame if the aforementioned cloud followed Jodie around and possibly hindered her employment opportunities. I think she’s the obvious choice to sit at the table next season. Or, maybe Jodie and Camila McConaughey can alternate days? I can’t stand Carnie at all. As many of you have pointed out, she makes everything about her. I pray she’s not even being considered as an option. Please forgive my possible unpopular opinion and preference as it’s not meant to be disrespectful or make me come off as an ageist at all, but I’d love TPTB to find someone younger (late 30s/early 40s) in order to balance out the span of the age differences among the co-hosts. I know Eve is only 40 (as am I), but I cannot relate to her at all. I enjoy her presence on the show and really like her, but... Can we agree to add the following to to our list of things she says as often as Sharon mispronounces words? (Did anyone ever tell Sharon that Jussie Smollet’s name isn’t Jessie?) “When I was younger and on tour...” OR “My mom was a young mom and super strict, so...” I agree with 95% of everything Sheryl says (it’s the no nonsense high school teacher in me) and I love that she’s not afraid to share her faith with the audience. However, I’m more of a cynical, “Cafeteria Plan Catholic” who wouldn’t volunteer at church to make friends. The volunteers in my parish wouldn’t exactly be up for a night of pub crawling or understand why dating is so difficult. She loses me sometimes when she talks about going to church or praying for something to happen. I do love that she & Carrie Ann are obviously BFFs. Their friendship is genuine and palpable. As much as I don’t care for the constantly crying Carrie Ann, I was able to relate to her when she shared how dating sites provided her with companionship and/or friends when she was too ill to leave the house. Sheryl didn’t seem to understand that and it made me a bit sad. Unless you’ve been temporarily house bound for specific health reasons, whether it’s a situational issue, you’re recovering from surgery or battling a chronic and intractable health issue, we can’t all jump out of bed each day and interact with people at a coffee shop or the grocery store. Even if we were out and about, everyone stares at their damn phones everywhere they go, so a simple chat with a stranger while you wait for a latte doesn’t happen anymore. It makes me so sad. I will still watch the show (unless they hire Carnie), but admittedly, it’s quite difficult for me to “see myself” at the table on many days. I know the show is meant to be light and fluffy, but with the quality of women and their intelligence (minus Sharon) on the show, I feel like they could tackle some deeper topics a hell of a lot better than the East Coast Fight Club TV Show that calls itself The View. I cannot lie: I’d like to see them discuss lighter or general political issues or comment on things that are everywhere. I’d have loved to get their two cents when the Cheeto in Charge ascended the steps onto Air Force One with toilet paper stuck on his shoe. The question could be: “Would you ever tell ____________ they have TP on their shoe/lipstick on their teeth/dress tucked into their underwear?” I want to see SOMETHING other than viral videos of morons doing shit to get as many “likes” as possible! I also wish they’d eradicate any “stories” about acts of animal cruelty. I fast forward that shit with both eyes closed. I know it’s important to highlight certain issues with the hope of possibly ending these horrific acts via awareness, but it hurts my heart. I felt the same way about the ladies discussing (and watching) the videos of “parents” who were literally slapping cheese on their babies. I don’t even have kids of my own, but I skipped that segment too. I did accidentally see a wee clip of it on “Inside Edition” while channel surfing and I needed a Xanax right then and there. While we know she would be just as inarticulate, illiterate and cuckoo if she were 20 years younger, Scratchy McScratcherson is 66 years old. She gives zero fucks about anything and doesn’t take things seriously. She proudly recalls anecdotes about the wrong things. I wish someone would cut her microphone out or edit her out entirely when she starts blabbing about the loony stuff she’s done over the years. The time she went to Jack and Kelly’s school to threaten a bully? 🙄How does Sara put up with it? On a positive note, as a curly haired gal myself, I absolutely love the way Sara wears her hair. I would write to her and ask for her hairdresser’s name and copy her haircut in a hot minute, but I have the thickest hair known to man. Wouldn’t work on me. Ever.

    "The View": Week Of 4/1/2019

    That’s my assumption. I read that the photo was sent to her boyfriend at the time, who happened to be a teacher in the same district, but was teaching at a different school site. I also thought Joy said the photo came to surface after it somehow became known that a student at the female teacher’s site was in possession of it. $5 says it’s a revenge porn smear campaign. I’ll bet that the ex-boyfriend somehow managed to distribute it via specific students who have siblings at the middle school site. With some exceptions, most secondary teachers in a school district either know each other or we’ve heard about each other, especially when we are still in touch with former students.

    "The View": Week Of 4/1/2019

    I’m 99.9% sure Meghan said she was sent a “dick pic” when they were discussing the middle school teacher story. As someone who was victim blamed by my principal when an 18 year old male student assaulted me in Nov 2016, I am not blaming the female teacher at all for this fiasco. However, common sense should dictate that sending a nude photo is never a good thing, especially in certain professions. If she’s 25, this means she was most likely very certain of what she profession she was going into at age 22 (when the photo was taken). I agree with Sunny that personal time is different than being at work, but there’s a certain unspoken rule for teachers about their conduct and behavior outside of the classroom, especially if a teacher lives anywhere close to where they work. Sometimes the things teachers engage in during their personal time DO follow them into the classroom and their students are indirectly impacted by those choices. For example, I’ve worked with several teachers who would go out and get wasted every single weeknight. They would come to work, totally hung over and end up half assing their lesson plans because of how awful they felt. Students can do (and have done!) their own online deep dive searches of their teachers and can find out tons of information not just about me, but my own mother! As a middle/high school teacher myself, I scrubbed my Facebook page and removed all photos of me with with any alcoholic beverage in my hand before my first year of teaching. Even though my page is private, employers can still (somehow) see what is posted. I do hope the teacher does get her job back. I also really want the origin of how the photo became distributed to be discovered ASAP, with appropriate consequences doled out to the responsible party/parties.

    Also, I tried to capture Abby’s shoes, and this was the best photo I could take.

    "The View": Week Of 4/1/2019

    Out of sheer curiosity, I looked up the price for those fancy cradle/sleepers that Whoopi sent to Abby. $1,295 EACH! Each!!!! While I don’t miss Whoopi on TV, it’s my understanding that she’s incredibly thoughtful and generous. However, why in the hell did TPTB (or whomever) have to make a big deal out of announcing such a lavish gift being sent to someone who can clearly afford them herself? I haven’t been watching the show for as long as many of you, but something tells me that Whoopi most likely sent the gifts to Abby at home and didn’t want a big announcement made about it, especially since I didn’t see the other hosts give Abby anything (other than Joy making lasagne). It’s just so weird to me.

    TDS 3.0: Season Four Talk

    THIS!!! I laugh out loud every single night during new episodes when Trevor does the imitation to the point where tears begin to stream down my cheeks! I am BEYOND thankful for his imitation - it gives me something to sincerely look forward to during the week. Seth Meyers does a pretty good one too, but there is something about Trevor's that accurately echoes and captures the moronic stylings of the Cheeto in Charge so perfectly. "I swear to God, if anyone finds out that I got a K+ in math..." (That line will always make me laugh!)

    "The View": Week Of 3/25/2019

    It can’t be too late because I’m about to give it up for Lent myself! I’m a newbie here, so forgive me if it’s been mentioned, but what is with Abby’s dirty sneakers she wears (mostly) on Fridays? I can’t help but notice them when she walks out because they’re soooo dirty. It’s like they’re her “subway/commuting shoes”, but wardrobe doesn’t have any dressy/casual shoes in her size, so she has to go on set wearing her dirty white sneakers. Anyone else see MM dig into her R pocket today the minute she sat down? Looked like she was adjusting something (Spanx or pantyhose), but it was so tacky to do on camera! That said, I’ve also lost track of how many times she’s had lipstick on her front teeth during the first segment. She must’ve pissed everyone off in the wardrobe, hair and makeup departments. That’s a rare gift! I almost vomited when MM paraphrased Mrs. Obama and said she “goes high” when dealing with the GOP assholes. She knows damn well where THAT specific phrase came from. Not acknowledging Mrs. Obama’s original words really pissed me off. (I know she’d never give credit to anyone, especially a Democrat, but it still pissed me off.)

    "The View": Week Of 3/18/2019

    Maybe it's the English teacher in me, but was I the only one who was horrified to read MM's tweet due to the glaring grammatical error? She used "Saturday's" instead of "Saturdays." I just can't with her to begin with, and then her dumb ass Columbia educated self (ahem, ahem) can't even figure out when to lose an apostrophe in a Tweet that's meant to be a mic drop moment? Where the hell was Ben and why didn't he spell check her post?

    Catelynn (and Tyler)

    Thank you, Druzy, for making my day! This is THE best example of how to identify Tyler’s actual writing versus the other stuff he posts and tries to pass off as his own (grammatically correct) “writing.” It’s so painful to read, especially as it’s one giant run-on sentence, that it makes me laugh. Also, Nova is now wearing monogrammed shirts? Okayyyyy..... The second I saw that, I thought two things: 1. C & T must’ve seen a recent photo of Carly and she was wearing a monogrammed t-shirt. They are copying B & T in some sort of really weird, screwed up “parent competition” game they’ve created in their empty heads. 2. There is no way that anything in the octagon house is monogrammed nor have they ever been into monograms/initials before. They’re such wannabes that it’s sad. See thought #1.

    Season 16 Discussion

    Am I the only one who finds John’s deep chuckle/laugh absolutely charming? I am loving him as a coach! How hilarious was it when the singer took zero time to choose John as their coach last night? No false adulations or empty compliments to Adam for turning around (rightfully so!), but it was amazing to watch! It pains me to type this, but as much as I love Kelly, she’s getting to be quite grating with each season that passes. (I’ve previously mentioned that my BFF has worked with her. In fact, her exact words were: “I’ve never met a more charming and down to earth person while working in my entire life other than Dolly Parton!” My BFF doesn’t impress easily as she works with celebs nearly every day of the week, so to hear this about KC was a huge deal.) I think Kelly is intimidated by John even more than Adam & Blake. For the last two seasons, she was the grade A coach with the golden team. She brought a level of success and professionalism with her that was hard to beat...until John arrived! During last season, the whole “singing along/talking during the auditions” crap started to drive me up the wall. Now she’s added “the guys won’t pick me” layer to her schtick and I find it a wee bit obnoxious. We need to put out an ABP for the Kelly from season 14!

    Amber: A Rill Woman Goes to Gel

    I really want someone to remind Amber what happened the last time someone bitched about not winning an Emmy in the Reality TV category! Let’s be thankful that she doesn’t have the energy to participate in a political campaign. 😉
