The opened the show to announce that First Lady Michelle Obama and wife of Vice Presidnt Dr. Jill Biden will appear as guests on Monday’s show.
Whoopi then said for the air traffic controllers to wake up. This is in reagrds to the latest incident where yet another air traffic controller was found to be asleep on the job. She said this is very nerve wrecking, as she already has issues with flying on airplanes. Sherri said she always prays for the people responsible for manning the airport. Hasselbeck talked about how the employees are overextended and that the Department of Transportation needs to get there and do a serious evaluation (ya mean regulations? Boooo! Hisssssss!) Whoopi talke about how air traffic control jobs are really stressful. She also (rightly) noted that the issue of them being underpaid started with Ronald Reagan. Hasselbeck said that was years ago and if it needed to be fixed there were opportunities to do so. Sherri said her cousin Tanika is looking for a job and works well under pressure. Then Whoopi started joking that she doesn’t want to know a Tanika or Shanika is in the control tower but would be fine with a Miss Alice. I’m not quite certain what she meant by that, really. It was an…odd….statement to make.
Next topic was American Idol. Apparently it was movie night and the contestants are doing well. Hasselbeck lauded Casy’s performance saying he played the bass really well.
After break they discussed Kobe Bryant, who lashed out at a ref by calling him a gay sur. He was fined $250,000 and had apologized. Whoopi said when there are cameras on you, it’s probably better to keep your anger in check. Joy jokes that he should just buy a big ring for the ref and everything will be fine. Sherri said men fight differently and go to the core of masculinity. Sjhe then told a story about living in Los Angeles and trying to shop during the riot. Her and some lady got into an argument and were calling each other the “b” word. I really can’t believe she is telling this story. She said the woman then called her a fat cow, which made her go “Hey!, That’s unfair”.
They then talked about VP Biden falling asleep during the president’s speech yesterday. Whoopi said the heat from the lights makes you tired. Hasselbeck kept trying to insert some joke where she said Biden was praying, not sleeping. It fell flat, like 3 times. Joy said she was getting dental work and was wide awake but Sherri went to the same dentist and fell asleep. Sherri confirmed, saying she can fall asleep anywhere.
Next, Whoopi took us on a tour of DIFFA’s Dining by Design. DIFFA: Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS is one of the country’s largest supporters of direct care for people living with HIV/AIDS and preventive education for those at risk. Merging care and commerce, supporters of DIFFA come from all fields of fine design and the visual arts, including: architecture, fashion design, interior design, photography and consumer product design.She talked to to designers Thomad Morbitzer and Goil Amornvivat, who showed different settings of dining areas with various these. It was quite interesting. She also taste tested some food there. It looked absolutely scruptious.
The first guest to appear was Tracy Morgan. Tracy is an actor, comedian and author who is best known for his eight seasons as a cast member on Saturday Night Live and currently known for playing the role of Tracy Jordan on the NBC series 30 Rock. He is Sherri’s TV husband on the show. She told a story of a scene where Tracy appeared before her naked and evertime he came out, he’d stuff is area. Tracy disputed the charge that he stuffed his crotch, saying he’s a Mandigo.
Tracy recently underwent a kidney transplant. He said he’s grateful to whoever donated the organ and it gives him the chance to enjoy a quality of life again.
Tracy was asked about comedy and how everyone can’t be funny. He said he was glad The Situation bombed and the talk of Sheen doing stand-up is not funny to him. He called it a trainwreck. He also said he was inspired by Whoopi and that she made a contribution to him as a stand-up.
Tracy met Colin Powell at the White House Correspondent’s Dinner and expressed how happy he was to meet him. He joked that Powell was his father.
In the final segment, Chris Cuomo, Lauren Lake and Judge Jean Perino answer “V-Mail” questions:
First question: Is there anything you can do to get out of jury duty? A: The exeptions are physical limitations or financial responsibilities. Chris encouraged people to serve, saying it makes you see the system differently when you do so.
Next question was regarding the Long Island serial killer. Chris said the problem right now is bad reporting going on right now. He said they believe the killer is targeting prostitutes and the area they are finding the bodies is a known dumping ground.
Next question: Do you have to legally return an engagement ring if you don’t marry? Lauren said the answer is not simple. It depends on the state and the circumstances.
Final question: When does common law marriage take effect? Common law marriage is largely a myth and very few states allow it. He said you have to hold yourself out like you’re really married.
That concludes today’s show. Have a great day!
It may have been a different scenario though, I mean we’re looking at the best case scenario because you were rescued you were found I mean your..your auto pilot shut down navigation system communications systems everything was broken down most teenagers probably couldn’t deal with their phones being uncharged for a little bit I mean you were out there (takes breath) in waves that were upwards of up like 60 feet right? Winds at 60 knots.. I mean this was not a uh… an easy sail. This was something that could have nearly taken your life! So, when you are in that situation you felt prepared to deal with that near death experience? – Elisabeth Hasselbeck
