This book ranks among my favourite non fiction books for the same reason The View has evolved and established itself among the most socially if not politically relevant television shows over the past two decades Mr Setoodeh has not only succeeded in authoring a cohesive and comprehensive account of The View historically but also managed to offer the reader an authentic portrayal of the sometimes flawed humanity seen on camera as well as what s been revealed off camera It s a good read if you enjoy the dramatic aspects of The View over the ast twenty years If the drama of the show doesn t interest you the book will bore you to pieces My main issues after having read it are The Juice Master Juice Yourself Slim: The Healthy Way to Lose Weight Without Dieting literally everyone in the cast is made toook Dry: Non-Alcoholic Cocktails, Cordials and Clever Concoctions like a terrible human being besides Debbie Lisa and MeredithBarbara is made out to be a psychotic control freak nazi boss firing and making women cry on a weekly basis that was only jealous of Joy while on airWhoopi is made out to be a job stealing vulture refusing to give up the position Barbara gave her even though Barbara was fired for WhoopiElizabeth is a crazy religious zealot but the book actually attempts you make you feel sympathy for her even though she was just Bill s talking puppet with no original thoughts of her own She was a waste of a paycheckRosie Perez I don t even remember if she was mentioned in the book which is pretty much the same impact she had on the showSherri No one cares She thinks the world is flat bye girl Same for that other blonde that s an anti vaxxer Waste of oxygen No one cares Barbara made you cry once you re an anti vaxxer you re killing children with your stupidity shut upStar comes off as a money hungry thief that knowingly married a gay man in order to have ongoing wedding segments to get as many free things as possible She constantly demanded the spotlight in meetings and hatedwas jealous of every other woman on the staff all whileying about her gastric bypass surgery forcing the women to The Big Book of Juicing: More Than 150 Delicious Recipes for Fruit Vegetable Juices, Green Smoothies, and Probiotic… lie for her Honestly she comes outooking Drink the Harvest: Making and Preserving Juices, Wines, Meads, Teas, and Ciders like the second worst after Rosie so I fee. This program is read by the author Like Fire & Fury the gossipy realife soap opera behind a serious show When Barbara Walters aunched The View network executives told her that hosting it would tarnish her reputation Instead within 10 years she’d revolutionized morning TV and made household names of her cohosts Joy Behar Star Jones Meredith Vieira and Elisabeth Hasselbeck But the daily chat fest didn’t just comment on the news It became the news And the headlines barely scrat.
