Though the ladies of 'The View' have made headlines for their bickering, it took nothing more than a gangsta rapper turned family man -- Snoop Dogg -- to turn the ladies from daytime divas to grinning, giggling graces. Ice Cube, here's lookin' at you!

Bearing crippin' blue gift bags, Snoop Dogg graciously avoided the mistake of snubbing one of the hosts by kissing each and every one on the cheek. And his gifts offered a personal touch: though Whoopi, Barbara, Sherri and Elisabeth all received Neff beanie hats designed to look like cupcakes in "vanilla," their first names were embroidered on each hat. Joy, however, received a black iPod loaded with Snoop's new album, 'Malice N Wonderland,' hooked up to his Skullcandy headphones. One way to unify the 'View' ladies: woo them with gifts. Future guests, take note.

Bearing crippin' blue gift bags, Snoop Dogg graciously avoided the mistake of snubbing one of the hosts by kissing each and every one on the cheek. And his gifts offered a personal touch: though Whoopi, Barbara, Sherri and Elisabeth all received Neff beanie hats designed to look like cupcakes in "vanilla," their first names were embroidered on each hat. Joy, however, received a black iPod loaded with Snoop's new album, 'Malice N Wonderland,' hooked up to his Skullcandy headphones. One way to unify the 'View' ladies: woo them with gifts. Future guests, take note.

Arms outstretched on the couch, the rapper né Calvin Broadus waxed familial when Sherri inquired as to his viewpoint on the Tiger Woods cheating scandal. Sherri's observation that Snoop was an appropriate commentator on the subject because he has "a lot of experience with women" evoked not only laughter from the audience, but insight into the turmoil from a previously unvoiced perspective.

"Me and my wife, we've been through a whole lot," Snoop conceded, alluding to infidelity that lead to his separation from and eventual reunion with wife Shante. "At the end of the day, I realized that I love my wife and my kids and I want to be at home with my wife and my kids and I had to give up the entertainment world and the temptation that was out there."

Snoop also told the 'View' ladies that he's sure Tiger is doing the right thing. He shed some light on Tiger's psychological state, saying, "It probably took this experience for him to understand that his wife and kids are the most important thing." It's a lesson Snoop learned from his self-proclaimed "uncle by love, not blood" Charlie Wilson on his 2007 E! show, 'Snoop Dogg's Father Hood.' "Sometimes until things happen, you don't realize what's most important in your life," Snoop said. We just wonder if Elin will be as sympathetic.

Married life seems to be a gas in the Broadus household. When Barbara mentioned Snoop's 12-year marriage, he gestured to a large diamond bauble on his ring finger, adding, "And you do know that!"

So, Joy interjected, is it the patriarch of the Broadus family or his wife that is truly Boss Dogg? "My wife!" answered the coolly sunglass-shielded Snoop, as if the answer were so obvious it rendered the question ridiculous.
