I nearly caused my mother’s conservative Fox-News-watchin’-Sarah-Palin-lovin’ head to explode last week when I broke the news that I’d signed on as an Ambassador for The View. It was one of the rare moments I was glad we live on separate coasts. No one REALLY wants to know what a Pit Bull wearing lipstick is actually capable of!
So WHY did I defy my very own maternal guru and join this group, other than my obsessive desire to join.. well just about EVERYTHING? What got me was that when I was approached about this and said I wasn’t really a “fan” and they STILL wanted me. What a shock! To be honest most companies or organizations that approach me about my blog get to the “Hey I tell it like it is” part and hit the gas like Danica Patrick on race day*. The producers from The View didn’t. In fact they seem truly interested building a show that has something for everyone.
So far just watching Whoopi Goldberg’s body languagehas been entertaining enough to keep me coming back. Check out his clip with Octomom
(Oh Joy you ask such probing… aka OBVIOUS.. questions)
When all is said and done I’m enjoying the train wreck guests show. It does have a certain edge that sets it a part from anything out there in daytime tv. Mind you day time tv for me, until now, has been Phineas and Ferb or Dora and Diego. The topics are a great mix of thought provoking and cringe inducing. Where else can you have soon to be former Senator Evan Bayh and be-bump-it-ed Snookie from the Jersey Shore on the same sofa?
I’ll keep watching with an open mind and a heathy dash of the surealism. From time to time I’ll come back here and dole out “learned” opinions. If you’d like to keep up with all the Ambassadors we have our own hashtag on twitter #theviewmoms.
And since I know I’ve personally given Cheapskate Mom crap for watching the show I’ll grovel now.. SORRY TAM.. I SUCK.. YOU RULE!
which is fast but not like finishing in the top 10 fast
I’m thinking it says something like “What the HELL Babs this ain’t no 20/20!”
I’m wondering if she got implanted with The Joker’s DNA while shooting up with embryos
I am a participant in a Mom Central campaign for ABC Daytime and will receive a tote bag or other The View branded items to facilitate my review
