Betty White is the guest co-host today. At first glance, I thought she was Barbara and wondered why she was sitting in the middle as opposed to the end like she normally does.
Betty is currently on the TV show “Hot in Cleveland”. She also has a book out titled “If You Ask Me” Apparently, Sherri was so excited to see Betty this morning that she hugged her and left part of her “African American” makeup on her. Betty said so now she’s half Black and half White. Sherri said she’s Betty White and Betty Black.
That was funny.
Thie first topic of the day was the death of Osama bin Laden. New photos released show the president, vice president, Secratary of State Clinton and the rest of the Obama administration in the Situation Room watching the events of the mission unfold. Hasselbeck was blathgering on about how she can’t imagine the stress level of the people in the room. Sherri noted how it was all men there with the exeption of Sec. of Stae Hillary Clinton.
They then discussed Former Vice President Cheney’s claim that waterboarding is what bought info regarding the wherabouts of Usama bin Laden. Joy said if we use them on others, they can use them on us. Sherri doesn’t care if torture is done, as long as she and her baby are safe. Betty said in all the years torture has been done, if we have learned nothing and wars are still occuring, then it’s a hopeless case that we will learn anything. Whoopi doesn’t know what got the info but is glad we got it and Usama is gone.
They then discussed Jimmy Kimmel’s show where he noted how reporters had a tough time differentiating between Usama bin Laden and President Obama’s names. They showed a montage of differnet news casts where the reporters used Usama’s name instead of Obama. Whoopi talked about how you can read the black box and think what you are seeing and what you’re saying is correct and be wrong.
Next, they talked about Dancing with the Stars. They then showed partners Maxum and Kirstie Alley practicing and Maksim being exceptionally critical of her performance. Sherri believes Kirstie did not do very well last night and wonders if it was because Maksim pushed her too hard.
They then congratulated Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon, who are celebrating the recent birth of their twins.
Rob Lowe was the first guest to appear. Lowe is an actor who came to prominence after appearing in films such as The Outsiders, Oxford Blues, About Last Night…, and St. Elmo’s Fire. On Television, Lowe is known for his role as Sam Seaborn on The West Wing and his role as Senator Robert McCallister on Brothers & Sisters. He currently appears as a main cast member of Parks and Recreation in the role of Chris Traeger.
Rob mentioned how he was an unknowing passenger when the 911 hijackers made a practice run on an airplane flight he was on. He said it shows you how fragile and fated all our lives are.
Rob was there to discuss his book “Stories I Only Tell My Friends”. In it, he discusses his role in “the Outsiders”, where many of his scenes were cut. He said he thinks the director wanted to focus the story on certain elements.
Rob recountered his experience meeting Liza Minelli when he was 8 years old. He was at a hotel and was given her room number. He goes to her room, is invited in, drank hot chocolate and discussed acting with Liza and her (then) husband.
Rob then talked about hosting the 61st Annual Academy Award Show. He said it was a bad mistake accepting the duty because the skits were silly. He said backstage, he was comforted by Lucille Ball, who said he was a fabulous songer.
Rob was asked about the sacandle with his sex tape. He acknowledged that it had a negative effect on his career but said it ended up being the best thing that happened to him. He said it began that process of wondering what he was doing with his life, which helped him get sober.
Rob said being on “The West Wing” was his most proud achievement. He said he doesn’t know why he left but the mix wasn’t where it needed to be.
The next guest to appear was style expert Alison Deyette. Alison was there to discuss bra makeovers. They showed different women that needed help with the bras they were wearing and getting the proper bra for their form.
