Whoopi's First Week On "The View"

Whoopi Goldberg completed her first week as the new moderator on "The View" and she did it with humor, style and intelligence. I must say it was almost jarring not to have the kind of fireworks that seemed to always crop up with Rosie O'Donnell, but as she worked her way through the week, Whoopi put her own stamp on the show and promised to bring a level of calm perspective, especially during the popular hot topics segment. Barbara Walters started off Whoopi's first show with a nice congratulatory note from New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg. There were a lot of menopausal jokes, something I guess we're going to get a lot of with three of the four women knee deep in or post-menopausal.

The first thing Babs says: "You may notice that we're only three, but we're almost four. We are very excited, this is a very big day for us." She then goes on to say "However, all is not good in the world...the bad girls are having a bad day." Oh great, they're gonna hold off the big announcement until the last two minutes of the show aren't they? Looks like they are. We launch into a discussion of Britney's bad mothering, and Babs holds up two nude pix of Britney with her butt crack covered. Joy thinks Britney needs to move out of the country. I'm with you Joy.
