The View Blab Fest

At 11 AM EST it’s coffee and chat time at my house ’cause that’s when I flip the channel to The View and get ready to start laughing and yelling. Thanks to the “snurricane”, the first 5 minutes of the show were preempted by a weather update (um, thank you, Mother Nature, I’d appreciate it if you didn’t cause problems during The View again). Fortunately, the show came in just in time for me to catch the tail end of the following conversation…

Hot Topics

Sherri Broke the Dress Code
Ok, so Sherri admitted to reaching into a dressing room and foisting someone’s dress for an awards banquet because the zipper or something on her dress wasn’t working. Sherri, girl, I love you and I love a fab dress just as much as the next girl (and that was a sweet dress) but you were dead wrong to reach into the dressing room and take that lady’s dress! Like Whoopi said that kinda warrants a throat punch. You broke the code, woman, you broke the code.
Guests
Regis and Joy Philbin
Can you believe they are celebrating 40 years of marriage? That is a crazy long time for your average marriage, much less a celebrity marriage. Regis said the key to a lasting marriage is patience because he spends a lot of time waiting for Joy to get dressed for event. Oldest stereotype in the world but, hey, after 40 years he can say it.
I also want to say how beautiful Joy looked ~ girlfriend, whatever you’re doing, you need to let people know (even if it’s surgical, let a girl in on your secrets).
Tanya Zuckerbrot
The latest celeb diet is something called the F~Factor diet which is basically a high fiber diet that focuses on adding foods rather than subtracting foods (whoot!). As my readers know, I’m currently trying to lose weight and move towards a healthier a lifestyle so I’ll definitely be checking this diet out a little more in~depth. Go here for more information on the F~Factor Diet.
Dr. Gadget
I’m an admitted gadget geek, so I was all over this segment. I have to admit to being slightly intrigued by the Palm Pixie (that screen was amazing) but I seriously heart my BlackBerry Storm so there will be no changing. However, I am interested in the Nook by Barnes and Noble. I have not tried any of the e~Readers (I know, bad geek girl) but I just can’t wrap my mind around not being able to feel the roughness of the paper or smell that woodsy inky smell that books carry. Still, I would be willing to give the Nook a look~see. Hint.
To see what others have to say, stop by and visit my girls at It’s Kerry’s World and Parenting by Dummies (they’re the ones who started The View Blab Fest ~ love them!). They’re funny, insightful ladies who’ll have you thinking and laughing.
