Annie Potts, currently starring in the new ABC series, GCB, which has some very soapalicious elements to it, was a special guest this week on The View.

When Annie sat down with View co-hosts Joy Behar, Whoppi Goldberg, Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Sherri Shepherd, the topic of  Republican Presidential hopeful, Newt Gingrich’s anti-Christian remarks last week, (which has become one of On-Air On-Soaps most popular posts of the past week) towards GCB (which stands for “Good Christian Bitches”) was brought up during Pott’s segment.

Annie fired back at Newt stating, “I did feel that it was especially rich coming from him that he called our little TV show un-Christian when he was carrying on an affair while he was impeaching the president for doing the same.  It’s like, you know, look in the mirror, honey, I think our show might be for you!”

Watch the segment after the jump, and also hear Annie’s comments about her late-Designing Women co-star and former Edge of Night star, Dixie Carter! And, tune-in to an all new-episode this Sunday at 10pmEST only on ABC.

awesome :), i enjoy this show. Newt is completely out of touch with reality and by attacking the show maybe he’ll make it more popular or make people more interested in wanting to tune in.

I dont give a rats ass about what newt says most of the time,but I am agreeing with him on this one ,abc/disney was going to call it good christian bitches,why water it down to gcb if its a good clean comedy soap ? ,walt disney would once again roll over in his grave , years ago he had a problem and told her so with annette funicello TOLD HER NOT TO WEAR A TWO PIECE BATHING SUIT in that beach blanket bingo movie or whatever the name of it was, if he saw these woman he would not allow it ,if he saw two thirds of the garbage abc/disney is trying to peddle us with he would be disgraced ,I cant make a honest opinion on this show but as a woman Im insulted with the bitch word as a christian I was taught to turn the other cheek and deal with the nasty remarks and insults we get regularly coming from hollywood.

HMs. t he would also be horrified to know we had Jews and black people in his movies or the fact he had some non white princesses. The man is dead and gone. It’s time to stop invoking his name As if he is the paragon more moral . A lot of Disney films are racist going up to Aladdin

@ Barbara: “I would like to have told you I was gone for a while taking a course in writing,but thats not where I was, I was here scratching my head wondering why I couldnt let that sean person have it back. ”

I said out loud, ” U stupid..” of course meaning funny. I laughed my ass off with this statement.
Anyway, don’t worry about the writing instructing. I can help you with that, bc I’ve taught writing. At this very moment, I am on my way to rehearsal, (and I just opened my email) so I have to go now, but when I get back in later, I will read the other boards U told me about and then tell you what I think. Make sure you let me know where the ‘post dates” are to find your comments so I can read them, because its just the “one “, above. Also, I dont see you responding to Sean, above. He is RESPONDING to you…! You are making your own independent statement above under Ginger, and then, that’s seems to be the end of it. So please ‘clear that up ‘ how U could have been out of line, I’m not sure. Oh, and for starters, Agnes shouldn’t have to buy back her soaps in my opinion, they should NOT be ” shelved ” for no profit. Tell me where to FIND the stuff and when I get back from rehearsal and celebration, I will read over everything, and respond.

And what is reality in this country now days? That we go to great lengths to condone people who strap on bombs and kill Americans that we condone burning our flag and our bibles but you better not dare burn a kuran that was passed with terriost messages in it ? Ms. Potts still does not get it she wants to make a statement by a politician and turn it around and lets make it personal I think Mr. Gingrich is well aware of his short comings!

ABC Cancels GCB! Disappointed Stars Take to Twitter to Express Sadness!

Another one bites the dust! And this case it proves that even if you have an incredible cast, witty writing from the amazing Robert Harling, and tons of publicity, it still could not save this series.

Today GCB was canceled by ABC.  The series, which was anticipated to fill the soapy void that will be left by the conclusion of Desperate Housewives  hit a series low in mid-April after starting out strong in its debut in March.

GCB was based on Kim Gatlin’s 2008 , Good Christian Bitches.  The series featured Leslie Bibb as Amanda Vaughn, a divorced mother and former high school “mean girl” who moves back to her old neighborhood in Dallas.  When she returned, she encountered the leader of the GCB’s Carlene Cockburn, played by series star, Kristin Chenoweth, who was hell-bent on ruining her reputation.   Two of the more popular characters were Blake and Cricket played by Mark Deklin and Miriam Shor.

Courtesy/ABC

So just what would a show like GCB  pull out of their bag of tricks for a funny and riveting season finale?  The answer:  enlist the brilliant Sandra Bernhard to play an eco-terrorist who puts the fear of God in the GCB posse!

The finale which airs this Sunday night, May 6th (10PMEST/PST) is titled “Revelation” and here is the lowdown:  When Carlene takes the GCBs down to unincorporated Juarez for the groundbreaking ceremony for the Condos for Christian Living; the GCBs find themselves in danger. (Enter Ms. Bernard!)  Meanwhile Amanda’s suspicions regarding Luke lead to a surprising discovery about Ripp.  And we also know from our recent interview with Mark Deklin, that a threat looms for Blake and Cricket’s marriage!

On-Air On-Soaps chatted with the hilarious Bernhard for a preview of the finale, and why she decided to take on the role of a terrorist!  Plus, the comedienne reveals what her plans are for the future.  Will we see more of Sandra B. on TV in 2013?  Here’s what she had to say about it all!  And make sure to check out a sneak peek clip from the episode featuring Bernhard below after reading our chitchat!

So you are going to hold hostage a bunch of Good Christian Bitches on the season finale?

SANDRA:  Yeah! Well they come down to Mexico and try to build a Christian condo on native land.  I am a Jewish eco-terrorist, Debbie Horowitz, and I am not going to let it happen.  So I hold the girls hostage in this abandoned tin shed in the middle of the Mexican desert, and I torture them! Well, not really, but in the way one would get tortured on GCB. (more…)
