  • My Name i is Name is Andrea

    As a recovering alcoholic, Rosie's compassion and understanding of this horrid disease made me cry as I to have been low enough to give in to the disease and let it kill me. I am now in a very different place and hope to stay in this stronger place. Getting the word out that alcoholism is a disease and not a personality problem is so important. Education is the answer. Thank you to the women who did the short film on her mother as she died of my mother did also. I too felt all the emotions she felt. Rosie's HUGE heart, compassion, education and interest in this disease is what needs to be put out there.moreless

    The show used to be somewhat classy, with intelligent banter. You know, Barbara is retired and The View should have also. Get rid of these unknown "moderators" who are ignorant and can't mutter anything relevant. Rosey Perez can't speak an intelligent statement, says the most stupid comments ("Why didn't he (the police officer) just shoot him in the knees" (referring to the Missouri death of a black robber). She should participate in some of the police training and she'd realize what a law enforcement officer has to deal with these days. Rosie O'Donnell is loud, brash and always is commanding sexual content between the gays (Rosie and the swishy male comedian whose name I can't remember) is unacceptable for daytime TV. Even the young viewer catches what the sexual remarks mean! "Master baker" from the swishy gay doesn't deserve applause on daytime TV! Even Whoopi can't stop the ignorance and she is moving toward it now. You let Elizabeth go and she was a voice of reason and relevance. Kill the show for Barbara's sake!moreless
  • Mario Cantone

    I love when Mario Cantone is on the view! He brings more diversity to the table.... I love Whoopi and always have. Miss Barbara, I grew up with her in general just like Whoopi. Not everyone is going to be pleased with the current line up but I like the show overall! Nicole Wallace, Rosie Perez and Rosie O'Donell are cool but add an extra chair for Mario Cantone !!! I miss him when he is not on just as much as I miss Whoopi when she is out!moreless
  • What's Happening!

    Where is Rosie Perez and Whoopi? They make that show and what's with the other Rosie, I mean really.

  • Michelle Williams

    I love watching the Michelle Williams was a TERRIFIC idea!! Shes wonderful she communicates well with the guests, we can understand her when she talks and she smiles and she would be fantastic candidate for the Perez needs to go she doesnt smile and its hard to understand when she watch it because I love Whoopi and Rosie Odonnel
