The ladies of The View have grilled politicians on their couch, argued the latest hot topics at their table and now they want to host a Republican presidential debate. According to The Huffington Post, “A spokesman for "The View" confirmed that requests have been sent to Republican campaigns but declined to speak further about any interest so far.”
Just how would a Republican debate on The View work? Would Barbara Walters be the moderator? Would Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Sherri Shepherd participate? If they did, candidates would surely prepare themselves for hostile questioning from Goldberg and Behar. Hasselbeck, The View’s conservative voice on the panel, would probably feel at home at such a debate, but who would have guessed the one-time Survivor competitor might one day be involved in a Republican presidential debate? Do you believe Republican candidates will agree to debate on The View?

Paris vs. Babs. The New York Post is reporting Paris Hilton wasn't thrilled by the questions she received this past Wednesday on The View. The celebutante appeared on the talk show to promote her new "reality" series, The World According to Paris. According to the paper, Hilton was not amused when Barbara Walters had her up against the ropes about the sincerity of Hilton's philanthropic endeavors. Hilton was also reportedly miffed that Walters took offense to Hilton griping about having to do court-appointed community service, stemming from her 2010 drug arrest.
According to the paper, Hilton and her father ripped into a View producer off-camera following the segment. While the Hiltons' rep declined to comment, a rep for The View admitted the incident took place. Check out what allegedly got Paris and Pops hot at the 2.04 minute mark below!

There are just some things I didn’t need to know about Oscar winner and The View host Whoopi Goldberg, especially how often she “spritzes.” However, it might explain her penchant for long, baggy shirts. At least she doesn’t take herself too seriously, because you can’t help chuckle. Watch Goldberg’s Poise ad after the jump! READ MORE
Yesterday on The View, Whoopi Goldberg apologized to The New York Times for calling their reporting "shoddy" in reference to an article on black Oscar winners that didn't mention her. She says she found the article "confusing" and was "hurt than neither Cuba Gooding Jr, Louis Gossett Jr, or myself were mentioned" but that she is nevertheless sorry for impugning the credibility of the film critics who wrote the article. It's good that she apologized...except that she's not being completely honest at this point either. READ MORE
