Interesting that Chelsea Clinton's there again so soon. Maybe they might hire a liberal "daughter of" to take one of Abby's or McCain's seats...? I kid. I'd rather they just fired the Republican daughters and got women with their own careers to lean on instead.

A decent guest list though. Looking forward to her, Farrow, Beckham, and Milano.

While Chelsea Clinton would be an interesting addition, the show would be completely boring with an all Dem/Liberal panel.

Meh.  Chelsea would be interesting but she's so cautious with her words that she seems stilted.  She doesn't have a natural ease to be on a panel discussion.

Boring lineup next week.  Farrow will be all about Matt Lauer.  And like I said earlier, I find birthday episodes tedious.

They should play I Feel Pretty when Sunny walks out Friday

Me too.   These are grown-ass women.   Why the big public fuss?   The only thing missing is the bouncy house.

Did they always do big Birthday episodes? I know BW was always a thing.  I just dont remember Meredith, Lisa even Star  having big deals. Did this become a big deal with Whoopi's Birthday, so they do for everyone?

Right, Meg, that disgusting video is all about you and your outrage over people tweeting you. 🙄

She was snappy towards her BFF Abby, too. 

"I don't care about the kids growing up - I mean I do, but..."

Am i the only one getting a Caitlyn Jenner vibe from Ronan?   Not that there's anything wrong with that.   Before they introduced him, I thought is was another woman sitting at the table.   He sure is good looking.

That, and poor Abby was just saying she was grateful her kids are too young to be exposed to things like this video, (and she doesn't have to explain it to them), which is perfectly understandable, and I'm sure is what many parents of young children feel, and Meghan's all, "It's not even about that because I'm old enough to understand it".

Sunny, the bangs in your eyes don't make you look young or cute; constantly touching/blinking them out of the way makes you look like an airhead.

Before the camera came in closer and you could see his tan t-shirt, I thought he wasn't wearing anything under his blazer.

He's always had gorgeous skin.  He may have a tiny bit of blush on, but he's just one of those men, like Rob Lowe, who are very "pretty".

I've always enjoyed reading his articles, so I may get the book as well.  I checked Amazon, and it's long - 464 pages.

Maybe I'm mistaken, but I was listening closely, since I was hoping she would say why Joy was out again, but I thought Whoopie said "if we're good".  Either way, I took it her addressing the panel, and maybe or maybe not including herself.

Enh. I agreed with Meghan (🤤). We're living in horrible times, and the children aren't the only ones suffering. As much as I mock McDaddy, [tm someone on this board] I too would be disgusted if the President of the United States seemed to approve of a video that was doctored to show the gruesome murder of someone I loved. I get that Abby wanted to say something, but she didn't have anything useful to say, so she broke out the ol' reliable "as-a-mother" speech.

   season 8 GIF 

I hope the ladies DO continue to discuss deadly overpolicing of Black people, and I hope they have an insightful discussion about why this keeps happening. Evidently, it's not as important to ABCNews as View Your Deal, but it's vital to the well-being of a free society.

How many times can Abby and Meghan mention they worked at Fox? Fox, Fox Fox, we get it. If they loved it so much why aren't they still there? Meghan couldn't let Ronan give NBC a compliment without bringing up Fox and how "quickly" heads rolled.

Then Abby at the end of the interview : we saw that first hand at Fox. 🤨

I’ve always liked and been fascinated by him.  I taped his GMA interview and don’t like what he had going on with back of his hair. ( fine today)  He’s much more relaxed and animated at the table than on GMA, just different setting. 

Megan is waving her red hands around again

It appears to me that he is wearing a wig.  His hair is too stiff in the back, always a sign.  He is a beautiful man.  He favors his mom but I can see a little Frank in there, too.

Gosh, enough of the birthday "episodes". They don't need to be an "episode". 

Just say Happy Birthday and move on with a cake at the end of the show. The birthday person can say the "Enjoy the View" closing thing.

Her total hair do is NOT good.  I think she would look better with a short or medium length style.  The puffs on the sides today are out of control.

Ronan is only 31, stays out of the sun and moisturizes, so his skin looks great.  

He's smart, attractive, doing good work and his partner, Jon Lovett of Pod Save America and Lovett or Leave It (CrookedMedia podcasts), is impressive as well.

I just don't get the way they kind of wave in and out from below her chin to end of the curl - just looks unfinished to me and distracting.  A nice bob would look more flattering.

Ha ha - it made me think of David Sedaris' book When You are Engulfed in Flames.

I also laughed when the camera operator focused on Megun squint-scowling at Ronan, with her eyelids engulfed in mascara, eyeliner and fake eyelashes.  Was  she waiting for him to say something liberal so she could stab him with her filet knife?  Or was she just puzzled by what she was seeing, like a 6-month-old watching someone on a unicycle for the first time?

OH, if she only would!  But she's so sexy, so Latina, so young and beautiful, that only a long, L-O-N-G hairstyle (enhanced with highlights and extensions) will do.  If she's this HOT at fifty, think how much better she'll be at SIXTY!!!

That really makes me question the comments about Frank Sinatra's being his "real dad."

She doesn't dare cut that hair.   Manny might start making goo goo eyes at some woman with longer locks.   Those yard-long curls are her perceived insurance policy.

So, that is her real hair and not just a bunch of extensions? huh

If Manny loves it, fine, but she can wear it back or up or something more attractive. She is a beautiful woman but all I can see is how bad those long coily things look.

Yes.  I felt horrible for her.  It began with her surprise guests being her husband and son who she had just left at home and got increasingly worse as the show went on.  It was obvious that Jeda had gotten fired and everyone was pissed off the entire show.  Then, at the end of View Your Deal poor Sarah was alone on the stage; everyone else was gone. Of course, they may have known Megs was Jeda’s replacement which would be enough to piss anyone off.

Ronan Farrow looks like a handsome woman. 

I don’t think I’ll be buying the book, though. I get the feeling he’s never had sex, and that mixed with the obvious Woody Allen thing, makes this endeavor to “expose” sexual predators a little precious. I get the feeling he’s going to write down whatever a “victim” tells him, and that doesn’t make me trust his instincts as a journalist.

Meghan getting all huffy about that stupid video someone made where they superimposed his face on a shooter was rich. And Whoopi saying Trump hasn’t condemned it yet was equally stupid.

You can’t trash talk the President day-in, day-out and expect him to be exquisitely sensitive to your feelings. Whoopi you won’t even say his name. The media constantly goes after him for being sexist, racist, xenophobic, etc. So he’s supposed to rush out to defend a group of people who hate him? 

And Meghan, once again, these people arguing with you on social media DO NOT LIKE YOU. They think you’re a turncoat, approval-seeking, spoiled rich girl who isn’t as smart or tough as she thinks she is. So by them “defending” the video, they’re saying FUCK YOU. WE DON’T LIKE YOU. WE HOPE YOUR FEELINGS ARE HURT. It has nothing to do with conservatives being hypocrites.
 

Of course, they may find it ironic that the media is so scandalized by the video while constantly attacking Trump with seemingly no regard for what a crazy person might think or say or do after being inundated with negative coverage every day. But that isn’t an endorsement, and had the shoe been on the other foot with Obama, Meghan’s right that conservatives would be outraged. The question is, though, would liberals give two shits about “conservatives being outraged” or would they shrug it off?
