Diana's death was horrible, and I felt badly for her sons.

Don't let Joy hear you say that. 😉

I am a Sunny fan - the coyness, not so much. But I wish she would drop the reparations question. It's not a winning issue and these are desperate times.

The TP thing with her husband, the looking under her lashes, pretending to be coy, just bugs me. She's a bright woman, I think they all are, but I guess we all like who we like..

And the poor kid named Waylon.  He (or she) will never go a day without somene's asking, "Are you named after Waylon Jennings?" until there are finaly no fans or pseudo fans left. 

?? Because Couric was blamed often and unfairly for the interview that sank the Palin ship ??

Nah.  You know all of her kids will be named Johnmccain. Johnmcain1, Johnmccain2, Johnmccain3.  And, none of them will have nicknames.  Plus, between Big Meg and her husband, they will be very large Johnmccains.

Joy - It looks like she did have an eyelid job.  Being Italian myself and knowing that Italian lids can be come invasive as you age I do think she had it done when she had her cataract surgery.  I had mine done in my 30s while they were fixing a scar.  It was done by an Dr. of Ophthalmology/plastic surgeon.

2 notes here folks:

1. Let's take any further in-depth discussion of Meghan Markle and other Royals to the thread dedicated to them.

2. This show does get into politics, and we allow discussion of things as they directly relate to show content, but we've gotten too far afield. Please keep any discussion of any political people or entities strictly related to how they were discussed on the show. Everyone who posts here needs to review the Politics Policy, please.

And I noticed when they showed the picture of Meghan in her "beach caftan," Sunny never looked at that either. 😄

Or me!   In our day (Joy's and mine) "badly" was an adverb ... it described some sort of action.  These days it IS actually accepted as an adjective in some circles, so "I feel badly" is incorrect and jarring only to those of a certain age and education.

This guy is trying to feel something "badly," as in (maybe) groping.FeelingBadly.thumb.png.b2dec82acffef02e76979e3c8f1fa7a4.png

True, AND some of us "old folks"  can't figure out the damn phone and how to switch from taking a photo of what's in front of you and taking a selfie.  (speaking only for myself, of course)

Yes, but when you open the camera it doesn’t go to selfie mode. He consciously did this. Getting into selfie mode is when the “old folks” struggle. Myself included.

YES! Kamala~! I’m surprised she came back on The View this soon, actually, considering how obvious they are that they’re in Biden’s pocket.

Just to be clear, I’m only talking about The View’s bias for and against certain candidates, not politics in general. There have even been articles about the fact, although I’m not sure if they were posted in the media thread or not.

I really hope Tara (the YouTuber who makes those hilarious View compilation videos) is hard at work with all the clips of Sunny visibly ignoring Meghan.

I love Sunny for bringing the interview back to policies instead of a long-running sympathy train for Joe Biden. And Kamala's response made me laugh, because she must've felt the same way. She soldiered through their BS very well, imo.

Obviously Meghan had to skip the Katie Curic segment to prep for her book reviews, which certainly paid off in spades!

I am loving Sunny “The Freezer” Hostin, for not even glancing Meghan’s way even once for the whole week. 🥶

lol, me too. I've paid more attention to Sunny this week than I ever have. And she didn't disappoint. It's so cold in that corner that Meghan's gonna need a parka.

You can add me to that list. Sunny drives me up the wall. But seeing her shut out Meghan this  week made me like her just a little tiny bit.

However , to be fair, if she was doing it to anyone else I'd think she was being an idiot. The fact that it's Meghan , makes it ok and is getting funnier by the day.

I'm not crazy about any of the hosts, but I appreciate the discussions on the show. Sunny is an  awesome legal and political analyst, but is irritating at lighter topics. She puts on an act that combines naivety and lunacy--not a good look. Still, I like her better than I like Meghan, and I really want to see the moment when Sunny goes off on her.

Omg this. I was getting pissed. I like Biden too. But Damn, they are running for President.  Biden was not attacked he was schooled big difference.  Kamala has every right to fight for the position to get the nomination. She wasn't even rude Biden. 

If I never hear the phrase cannibalize again, I'd be so freaking happy.

I wonder if whoopi thinks of Barbara Walter's when she spaced out on camera,  just asking. 

I'm disappointed we didnt get Ana's book picks.

They should have done Ana's book choices instead of having Kamala stay for a third segment; she had to talk so fast it was hardly worth it.  She was great in her first two segments, though.

Maybe Ana will get to tell us her books on a future show, since I assume they have the hardback copies to give away to the audience.

Kamala's delivery bothers me. She pauses for dramatic effect and has a certain tone (whiny?) that irritates my ears. Also, she's too wordy. She took four minutes to tell us that Acosta is bad and predators should be prosecuted. Duh! There were a couple of times when Whoopi had to hurry her to make her get to the point.

Speaking of Whoopi...how dare she take on the legal disclaimer. That's Sunny's job. And then one minute later Sunny is the one gushing the loudest and clapping the hardest about Whoopi's People Magazine photo. Puh-leeze 🙄 . I want to see Sunny give Whoopi the cold shoulder, too!

Ooh, that's right. Sucks for the authors. They gave away all those free books and didn't get the on-air publicity.

I think Sunny is well aware of the Power Behind Meghan (Disney, ABC, AND Whoopi) and she'll bide her time.  Still, I want to see that too.  Maybe THAT would be a way for SNL to include Sunny.

But, BronzzzzzeDog, how would The View ever afford to put on the show if they didn't sell their little trinkets?

I agree, she spent way too much time on Acosta when she could/should have been addressing other questions about her candidacy. I've also noticed that she looooves to talk about her background as a prosecutor. Ok ok we get it, you used to be a prosecutor. Now how about telling us your plans for the presidency.

I wonder if they will pretape her book choices while she’s there today and air the segment next week when they have a few extra minutes to spare.

Did Meagain even read the Crawdads book?  You'd think she would be able to talk about a book she supposedly loves without reading (and screwing up) someone else's review of it off the teleprompter.

Is there a pop up version ?  Lol

I haven't been watching. I tuned today to see. Sen Michael Bennet. Stuck around for the rest of the show. 

Lol, Sunny really is giving Meghan the cold shoulder it so obvious 😄

Meghan skipping the KC interview hmmm, interesting. 

Meghan's first book choice wtf?🙄

Watching Sunny ignore MM was worth having to hear John McCain name once again being brought up.

I liked Michael Bennett.  I found him thoughtful and articulate.  He explained his ideas and i liked them.  He was like if Biden and Buttigieg had a baby.  With the wisdom and temperment of both combined.  He was well prepared.  Now Kamala today..go girl!!  She would definitely get my vote if the election were today.  I liked all her answers. Again thoughtful and articulate. A bit of the eager beaver, but i took that as excited to be on the show and wanting to get all her stuff out before 'cutting to the next comm lol'.  I like her a lot though.

I looked up reviews of the Crawdads book to see if her blue-card writer had plagiarized someone else verbatim and saw that there are a few "summary versions" of the book for sale - for teachers or book-club leaders to direct discussions.  LOL.

Sunny does the same, I prosecuted, when I was a prosecutor, it drives me cray cray. But Kamala only had  so much time, this Acosta person, is very much in the news, and she had to address it. If not, she would of been asked why not.

Wouldn't it be fabulous if we have all those View Your Deals because Meghan has caused a UUUGE loss of sponsors and ABC needs the coin?  A girl can dream...

Did Whoopi say she was 55 or 65? I heard 55 so maybe she was being sarcastic.
