Whoopi takes on Bill O'Reilly (dressed as Dracula)

by Bob Sassone, posted Nov 2nd 2009 4:02PM
One last Halloween post. Bill O'Reilly appeared on The View on Friday, dressed as Dracula. It's a basic costume, but it suits him. Of course, the talk turned to the Fox News vs. the White House story, and then O'Reilly, for some bizarre reason, calls Whoopi "jealous" because he has a best-selling book. But what's equally odd is Whoopi's response, where she lists the awards she has won. I think that has been boiling inside her for a while (that part happens about 7:48 in).

And what's with all the weird mugging and looking around that Whoopi is doing? She's actually kinda of an odd person, isn't she?

Seems to me Whoopi and Joy were very rude to their guest from the moment he walked out on the set. Very different from the way they kiss every other guest's ass!

I believe most stars are a little odd or they wouldn't be stars.
When you go to heaven and they write your obituary they will add your accomplishments. Whoopi has been a major movie star and will be on the screen again.
She is also on the small screen, performs her comedy act,writes books is on Broadway . She is a Star.
PS. Wouldn't you roll your eyes with the comments Barbara and Sherri make some days.?
Yes I like the show

I generally enjoy Whoopi but the statement that she made about her being a movie star for the last 25 years came off as incredibly pompous, and the equivalent of when people use the line "do you have any idea who I am?" as a way to intimidate people.

The fact is that although she is talented and has done many notable things in her career, she's been a has been for more than several years now. Being a co-host on a daytime talk show and the center square on a game show is basically an indication of that. If you watch The View regularly you will see that she is often times very patronizing and condescending towards the others especially Sherri, and rolls her eyes at most things Barbara says.

And, as much as I am not a fan of O'Reilly, he was just trying to be playful with her and didn't mean it seriously. Her response went too far and she showed that he got under her skin rather easily. Not a good moment for her.

Don't always agree with Whoopi or Bill (generally like both of them), but I thought Whoopi could have been a warmer host. That was not enjoyable to watch.

Whoopie did not list her accomplishments - Sheri did.

It appeared to me that Bill was playfully saying that Whoopie was jealous (of his book success)and that seemed to push her buttons. Although she didn't list her specific accomplishments, she said "I've been a movie star for 25 years!", which of course, is nonsense. He last "starring" role was in 1996' "Ghosts of Mississippi" which was her fourth consecutive flop at the box office. After that she has been relegated to character roles in movies. Nobody is going to make a film with her as a "star" anymore.

"She's actually kinda of an odd person, isn't she? "

That seems like a bit of unnecessary commentary. Why would you view her response to someone intimating that she isn't successful odd? Particularly considering who O'Reilly is. So, I think your framing of someone reacting to O'Reilly's random targeting of the only minority on the dais with a bit of gravitas as odd -
