Honestly, the best part of the whole special was the cameo by Joy Behar at the very end. Other than that, the list was pretty predictable.
Barbara Walters came out swinging in her oh-so-polite away saying that she "resents" a couple ex co-hosts dumping on The View for their own publicity.
Translation: The political season is over, what better way to keep ratings at all time highs than to take on the big R and big S again?
Not to be outdone at Halloween by her co-hosts, Joy Behar dressed up as Teddy Roosevelt and brought a real, live horse along as a prop.
Boy oh boy, the drama at The View just won't stop. Amidst reports that after Joy Behar and Elisabeth Hasselbeck got into fisticuffs backstage and that Barbara Walters and Bill Geddie were teed off over Elisabeth wearing a pro McCain t-shirt on The View, comes this gem from yesterday's show.
During the first segment Barbara paid Elisabeth a compliment only to have to come back in the next segment and pay Joy a compliment. Barbara did her best to laugh it all off but judge for yourself, from the look on Joy's face, whether or not it was all in fun. Even to the most casual of viewer, it's obvious tension is mounting on the show.
