My View of The View My take on Tuesdays show:
The ladies discussed the new dancers on "Dancing With the Stars". Kate Gosselin, Buzz Aldrin (yes, the astronaut) to name just two of the new contestants and probably two of the most unexpected. An interesting point was brought up. Do you think Buzz Aldrin, an American hero, will have a tarnished image for joining this show? At first I was shocked and (I admit) a little horrified that this man who is an American icon would stoop to being on a reality show. I started to reconsider when one of the ladies pointed out that people may see him as more of a human being. We do seem to put our heros on pedestals. Maybe he is a wonderful dancer. I am curious though at what has motivated him to join the show.
Elizabeth had a "Bachelor hangover" after watching the conclusion of this seasons hot show. I loved that term. Have you ever felt letdown the morning after watching a show-a pit in your stomach from how it ended? If you haven't heard, the Bachelor chose the woman who he had the chemical pull with rather than the one who he had connected with emotionally. Like Sherri, I wonder how long this relationship will last.
Robert Pattinson (Twilight series) and Emilie de Ravin (Lost) were on promoting their new movie, Remember Me. It always amazes me that actors can perfect an American accent for roles. I don't know why that always amazes me when American actors can perfect English and Australian accents. Walters complimented him by comparing him to James Dean. I have to admit I can't see him in anything beyond his role in Twilight so I want to see his new movie. Pattinson in some ways seemed embarrassed by his heartthrob status. He was very personable with the ladies and he seemed down-to-earth honestly admitting to having a panic attack at a premiere and hiding in the car. I loved his comment about Betty White being sexy when asked if he would date an older woman.
Emilie mentioned that there are only three episodes left yet to film of Lost. It seems that the actors themselves are unsure about where the writers of Lost are heading. Darn. I was hoping for some insight. This season is driving me crazy. I have a feeling that the moring after the season finale, I am going to have a "Lost hangover". Emilie seemed oversahdowed a bit by the hoopla over Pattinson's hearthrob status. She looked amazing though and had on an awesome pair of shoes.
Mitt Romney, former governor of Massachusetts, was also on promoting his new book, No Apology. He was very candid about what needs to change in America. He semi-jokingly had responded to a question about what he would change by changing the president, Congress, and the senate. He went on to state that we need to balance our budget and reform our schools-two things that I feel strongly about myself. I think he related to the feelings of many of the day's viewers when he said we need to stop pointing fingers and talking about what is wrong and start acting.
