Octomom and Kate Gosselin to Co-Host “the View” — What is the criteria?

Have a litter of children and YOU TOO could be a TV star! What does this say to young girls? Forget about college, just abuse fertility drugs or find a unethical fertility doctor, play with science and see how many lives you can create, and then proceed to ruin, while you get your 15 minutes of fame, tabloids and “nice things.”

Octomom learned from Kate Gosselin. Kate Gosselin saw the McCaulhey’s get freebies for all their babies and knew she could do that too. I understand helping out a family with diapers, formula, and even “juicy juice” but vacations, plastic surgery, million dollar homes and TV appearances are all on the sweat and tears of 21 children.

None of these 21 children live with 2 parents. NONE of these 21 children could possibly be getting the love and attention they need from their mothers. 14 of these children don’t have a father and their mother is busy at the gym and out on dates.

“The View” has lost all credibility. Barbara Walters was one time a respected journalist. Now she’s a shill. She’s putting people on her show hoping to discover another “Hasselbeck” but she’s just making a fool of herself and her show.

I won’t watch Kate. I won’t watch Nadya. I haven’t watched “the View” in months. I miss Rosie O’Donnell and I think Sherry gets dumber by the day. I actually sort of like Elizabeth now, but that is only because I see how much more poised and capable she is in front of a camera compared to the clown uteruses that are trying to steal her job.

Hasselbeck accused of Plagiarism! (and being a stupid bitch who screeches when she talks)

BOSTON – The author of a health book has sued Elisabeth Hasselbeck, accusing the co-host of ABC’s “The View” of plagiarism.

The lawsuit, filed Monday in federal court in Massachusetts, alleges that Hasselbeck lifted “word for word” content from a book written by Susan Hassett, a self-published author on Cape Cod.

Hasselbeck’s book, “The G-Free Diet: A Gluten-Free Survival Guide,” has appeared in the past month on several best-seller lists.

Hassett said in the lawsuit that she sent Hasselbeck a personal note and copy of her “Living With Celiac Disease” book as a courtesy after the television celebrity disclosed she had the illness last year.

Celiac disease is a digestive disorder associated with people who cannot digest gluten, a protein found in wheat, rye and barley.

Hassett said Hasselbeck’s book “slavishly reproduces” lists and passages from her own work and includes inaccuracies about celiac disease that can be “misleading and dangerous” for people with the illness.

A lawyer for Hassett declined to comment Tuesday. A phone message left for Hasselbeck’s agent was not immediately returned.

The lawsuit seeks to block the sale of Hasselbeck’s book and asks that copies of it be withdrawn from distributors and stores.
