REPORT: Even More Major Advertisers Bail From THE VIEW In Wake Of Miss America/Nurses Mockery!

What started as out as two national advertisers on Thursday pulling out of the ABC‘s morning talker, The View has now gone up to five as of late Friday!

According to TMZ.com you add: Party City, McCormack and Snuggle to the advertiser list, along with previously announced Johnson & Johnson and Eggland’s Best that have decided to remove their ads from the program.

It all stems from comments made earlier in the week by co-hosts Joy Behar and Michelle Collins, who poked fun at Miss America contestant Kelly Johnson.  Kelly, who was Miss Colorado, during the talent portion of the competition performed a “nursing monologue” dressed in hospital scrubs with a stethoscope around her neck. It was her attempt to deliver an emotional monologue about her chosen profession.

Collins first mocked it saying, “Shockingly (she) did not win.”  And Behar joked, “Why does she have a doctor’s stethoscope on?”  That raised the ire of the entire nursing community!  Even a #NursesUnite hashtag went viral after the commentary that was seemingly meant in jest by The View panelists, but not perceived that way by many in the viewing public.

McCormick, a Fortune 1000 company, replied on Facebook to an upset consumer, “Like you, we also value and admire nurses, so we have paused advertising on the daytime television show.”   However on Friday’s airshow, The View honored the nursing community and attempted to do some damage control by learning more about their life-saving profession by having some nurses with them during a segment of the broadcast.

So we ask:  Should The View just be cancelled at this point?  Did you take  offense to Collins and Behar’s comments, or were you thinking the same thing watching Miss Colorado’s performance?  What do you think about all the major advertisers pulling out of the show?

Watch Miss Colorado’s performance during Miss America that has spawned the headlines for The View below! And then, watch the clip of Behar welcoming guests from the nursing profession from today’s episode of the morning talker.  Then it’s your turn.  Weigh-in on The View’s latest debacle in the comment section below!

    All of this is ridiculous. Nurses work hard, but since when is having an opinion on a talk show titled The View wrong? I think they’ve done enough apologizing.

      Exactly. And how is mocking a beauty-pageant contestant’s performance the same as mocking all nurses everywhere? Soon, no one will be able to say anything at all.

      It goes beyond attacking a nurse. This women was not some bimbo with her boobs hanging out! This was a clean cut women who helps others and isnt your typical gold digger! These yentas on the View attacked her with any disregard to what its like to work a real job and not have 10 people pampering you every day!

    Cancel the trainwreck. This show stopped being important four years ago. Whoopi is a snooze. The other co-hosts are hacks except for Joy Behar and she only came back for the pay out. Cancel it.

      I respectfully disagree…about Joy. To me, she’s the worst of all!

      • Dylan

        September 19, 2015 at 12:10 pm

        Agreed! Joy has a filthy vulgar mouth and always has. She rarely thinks before she speaks. And she has always used The View to advance her personal platform and agenda, and anyone who disagrees with her, she gleefully throws them under the bus. For all her talk of tolerance and anti-bullying, she is the biggest bully and her playground is an international television viewing audience. She will insult everyone and everything including God! Nothing is off limits for her vile form of talk show. Having a talk show doesnt mean you can just make reckless comments about things you dont understand, but thats what she, and other panelists, have always done. I always liked when Joy’s caustic tirades were balanced out by more level headed, intelligent women like Meredith or Elisabeth. If this show has offended THAT many huge national sponsors, maybe it is time to pack it in!

      • Harry

        September 19, 2015 at 4:25 pm

        Elizabeth Hassalback is a an intelligent, level headed woman? Compared to what?
        A possessed chicken?

      • Dylan

        September 20, 2015 at 11:12 am

        See…I think I made my point Harry! LOL….. Elisabeth is level headed and intelligent compared to Joy.

    • CeeCee

      September 21, 2015 at 4:48 am

      No, Joy Behar came back because of popular demand. We only see the negative perspective, but when she left, everyone was up in arms, including the producers. She had said her last farewell to THE VIEW, except to appear as a guest-host once in a blue moon. It’s not as if “they” were not familiar with her style… We all knew what we were getting….she’s no novice….and neither is Whoopi.
      Just because we hear of the odd few foaming at the mouth defaming these women on the panel, it does not mean it is the popular consensus. Both of them are very well received wherever they go. This nurse was out of her league. Nursing is her profession. I do not think her monologue was anything anyone expected. I am a Physics teacher. I’m sure that if I entered such a contest, the last thing people would expect is for me to get up there and talk about prisms or the alignment of the planets. So, please give these ladies of THE VIEW a break. Let’s all say our Hail Marys and be thankful of our freedoms which are hard to come by anywhere else in the world.
      I will grant the fact that, considering what was left of it, more or less, drove the show to the ground, Joy was recalled. It’s as simple as that. At her age, Joy paid her dues….she is well-set in life, needing not the pay-back.

    This has been blown way out of proportion. They weren’t mocking nurses. This is becoming way too extreme.

    • CeeCee

      September 18, 2015 at 9:50 pm

      Agreed, Enrique. WOW! They were making light conversation…..it was nothing personal. I did not think they were mocking the nursing profession. Boy, someone took the words and ran with them.
      For these ladies to be called stupid is neither here nor there. I would caution those posters whose grammar is deplorable to call the kettle black.
      The ladies are quite intelligent, in their own right….for people to come out of the woodwork to attack and flagellate is ridiculous. Were you all waiting to jump on the band wagon? Any band wagon? Don’t you or the advertisers think there are more pressing matters in this world to worry about, other than what two comediennes, by profession, say as a joke? A JOKE, people! When have we, as Americans, become so snobbish and cruel? “

      • Timmm

        September 20, 2015 at 2:42 pm

        I think the big picture is not necessarily what the View women said BUT people coming to the nurses defense because it is a typically thankless job where nurses are underpaid and discharged as servants. I’ve seen in hospitals where patients run these nurses like they are their maids at a five star hotel. Thats what I think it is.

      • CeeCee

        September 20, 2015 at 8:24 pm

        Yes, Timmm, there’s much truth in what you say. The majority of nurses are authentically caring professionals. But, I have also seen the opposite, where nurses are in a position of authority…..abusing said authority to the hilt with a select few patients. We have all heard horrid stories.
        This has been blown so out of proportion. Maybe a device should be invented for all of us to wear. That is, the device would beep crazily each time we made a faux pas. Sounds ridiculous? Of course. We live in a democracy where what we say is protected by certain rights. But, everyone seems to get on that proverbial pulpit and CAST stones.

      I agree..
      It is simply an opportunity for the internet radical kooks to tweet their crazy stuff, then the news picks up on it and exploits it for entertainment news ..
      The days of ”actual” news is long gone, news CNN and other are more-so entertaining, they no longer report the news it is used as entertainment, crazy LOL

      I do not care for the women of the Talk nor the Talk, but what was said is an ant hill made into a mountain..
      nobody can make comments any longer for fear of twitter zealots of crazy yelling not political correct LOL ..
      USA is becoming dangerous with the extreme political correctness junk, it’s gone too crazy.

      • Harry

        September 19, 2015 at 12:09 pm

        I think The View should be canceled but certainly not because of this incident which quite frankly, is much ado about nothing.
        When have we as a society become so thin skinned and humorless? When did we have to have the obvious explained to us?
        Joy simply wondered why she was seeing a stethoscope around the contestants neck during the talent portion. One is accustomed to seeing beauty contestants trotting in wearing tap shoes or holding an accordion or twirling a baton. It was a simple and harmless question. Perhaps if there was a snark it was directed toward the antiquated Miss America Pageant which still features a bathing suit competition. Everyone loves and respects nurses–they are not a maligned minority.

    Those two washed up so called entertainers should be charged with defamation of character for their rude and stupid behavior I have never watched the View cause of my intense dislike for Whoopie and Joy two big mouths with no brains I say cancel the View all to gether cause this show is not good

    • CeeCee

      September 18, 2015 at 9:54 pm

      Well, Dee….I find your comment rather harsh. I hope this quote rings a bell….
      “One should examine oneself for a very long time before thinking of condemning others.”

        Beautifully put, Cee Cee.

      • Dylan

        September 19, 2015 at 12:16 pm

        With all due respect, Cee Cee, we have had an awful lot of time to make a decision on Joy’s nasty behaviour. As the viewing audience, we had front row seats to it every morning. Your choice of “condemned” is a little extreme, though. In life, there are consequences to our actions. Too often, celebrities just get a Hall Pass on the consequence part and just go on acting like buffoons!! Maybe, even at her age, this will teach Joy something about her blunt rudeness. Nursing is an honourable profession, and they work much harder than talk show hosts for a fraction of the pay. They are saving lives…not mocking them on national television.

      • CeeCee

        September 19, 2015 at 2:14 pm

        @Dylan.
        With all due respect to you, Dylan. I am not condoning Joy’s or Michelle’s behavior. Personally, I think Michelle needs to tamp her mouth. And, believe you me, I have made my sentiments known to TPTB; that is, how stupid it was to fire Nicolle Wallace. I won’t even touch Raven. I will stop because then I will fall into the same categorical pit as the people I am taking to task, or perhaps so you think. LOL.
        My point is that I do not think that Joy’s remark, as offensive as it seems, did not call for so much criticism. I know Joy, she is not like that. Those who have viewed THE VIEW (lol) for a period of time would appreciate her sardonic, sarcastic remarks, as Harry’s or Timmm’s. They’re funny, unfortunately it was not done in good taste, albeit that was not the intent. I think people are always too quick to pass judgement. Joy and Michelle, I am sure, both feel mortified…they have apologized and wish they could take their words back. There was no malice involved, but people are turning said words into such an-end-of-the-world catastrophe.
        We all say stupid things; none of us is perfect. That is the only reason I quoted Moliere. I think Harry, as an avid reader of philosophy and philosophical comedy, gets me. You may have read/studied “Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme”…you know what a hodge-podge, mish-mash idiotic play it is…all about human flaws, regardless what social status. I read the original French version. Obviously the reader will have a completely different take from it. Anything one reads always loses something, if not the idea, in translation.
        Thank you, Dylan. I do ken what you are saying, trust me…..my thought process was just not aligned with yours that’s all. Later.

      • Timmm

        September 20, 2015 at 2:47 pm

        Great quote! Nobody should be fired. The View is close to being canceled anyway! What I would do is have one of the women on the View tag along with a nurse on a shift and show it on the show. It would educate the panel and VIEWers and hopefully everyone hugs it out and there are no hard feelings!

      • CeeCee

        September 20, 2015 at 7:47 pm

        @Timmm.
        Good idea, Timmm. I could convince my husband to tag along with the nurse and one of the women of THE VIEW when he does his rounds.

    • Rose

      September 19, 2015 at 5:17 pm

      Dee & others…”In the beginning,” maybe even a little before some commenters “viewed” The View, I watched because of Barbara Walters. Talk about a resume of interviewing some of the most important and influential people from show biz to politics, etc. during her career. Then she had a vision of an intelligent, entertaining woman’s talk show with panelists and guests representing many points of view, some of whom I didn’t like…but there was a balance to it. It became The View.

      But there was no competition for ratings like there is now…and now, no more of the Barbara influence. I think The View has lost the vision of it’s original intent.

      Also there was not the kind of “gotcha humor” that Joy represents, and both she and Whoopi have defended over the years. It’s definitely not for me…it’s just another way of put-downs on national tv, or dark comedy clubs, that I’ve called payback “humor,” and not funny to me at all.

      As far as this Miss America “controversy,” this type of completion is fodder for these kind of “comedians” whether it’s on The View or elsewhere. Where I do feel bad is here was a young woman, who earnestly did a monologue on her nursing experience, in good faith, on a national show, didn’t twirl a baton, and she got these snide remarks from other women.

      • CeeCee

        September 20, 2015 at 12:04 am

        Hi, Rose.
        Just as you say, no matter the talent, no matter the mode of dress, no matter the verbiage, once in the public eye, a body becomes fodder upon which one feeds. Joy just beat these other comedians, and then some, to the punch. This was a talent show; not an expose on nursing. We know what a sacrifice it is for these dedicated professionals, including all medical professionals. I am married to one. Long hours; long nights…..
        No, the competition, back in the day, was mostly non-existent….but, how can one blame the panelists? Joy was asked back because there was a demand for her kind of edgy humor. Try to restore what once was….but, to no avail, it seems. She is doing her job. She is not a hag, nor a washed-up moron, as she has been called. I say, what makes us any better than what some intimate about Joy et al? Are we any better? Gimme a break; so easy to be righteous…( not you, Rose, never you).
        Oh, please! My mother-in-law still bemoans the stupid words uttered on public television by a member of THE TALK demeaning ALL Italian men; thus belittling an entire culture. My mother-in-law went as far as calling the network in California. She was so affronted, rightly so, by this nonentity, non-savant, who proclaims to be one. Any intelligent, well-educated being who knows his/her history cannot deny the contributions the Romans; ergo, Italians have sowed throughout the world and beyond….from seedlings of innovative technology to Astrological strategy and mathematical formulas. Good grief….there is a city in England named BATH. Why? Because of the spectacular aqueducts and indoor baths/spas invented, and introduced by the Romans.
        There was no berating, no word of apology; nothing. As my grandfather- father-in-law is wont to say….”before the Romans conquered and civilized them for 400 years, the Brits lived in trees”. No one came forward to recant her stupid, insensitive words.
        Enough is enough, I say. Let’s move on to a better place.
        No one is forcing anyone to watch. If THE VIEW is to become defunct, let its end come when it comes. And, at such time; there is something to be said about surviving this long.
        Gosh…let’s be done!!!!!

    I saw that portion of the pageant and thought it was a strange talent. But whatever. I definitely feel these advertisers are over reacting a bit. They choose not to advertise, so as a consumer, I can choose not to buy their products. Also , both Joy and Michelle apologized. We all respect nurses and the amazing job they do, so let’s just move on.

    • Harry

      September 19, 2015 at 12:12 pm

      Maureen, I think that is where Joy was coming from. It also seems to me that nursing is a profession and the nurse was exhibiting a skill, not a talent.
      To me, there is difference.
      And I do agree, let it go.

    • Kat

    Quite watching The View years ago. For me it totally lost it’s way as an interesting, relevant show. But I did watch clips of both the contestant and View comments on her performance to see what the fuss was about. Just reinforces why I quit watching. Or any so called “comedy” that puts other people down. Sometimes I wonder if it’s just payback for grievances suffered as a kid. Also sad many find this kind of “humor” funny.

    • Cat

      September 19, 2015 at 1:02 pm

    • Harry

      Ahem, Joy simply asked why a beauty contestant was wearing a stethoscope for the talent competition.
      Some of the nurses (albeit not all) collective outrage is doing more to harm their profession than Joy’s innocent query. Those who can not stop shrilling about it appear to be thin skinned, humor challenged and insecure.

    I did watch the Miss America pageant live. I saw the monologue by Kelly Johnson. It was unique. The content of the monologue was quite moving. But I didn’t know Kelly was a nurse herself. I thought Kelly was an actress delivering a monologue. Glad to know that now because although I liked the content of the monologue, I was judging her performance thinking actress and found her wanting. When she was eliminated from the competition I wasn’t surprised because I thought as an actress she wasn’t very good. Now that I know the real story behind her monologue, the only thing I say is it would have helped if she had been coached on her performance by a real actress. Kelly had the passion down pat and understandably so. But there was something missing that a real actress probably could have identified and helped Kelly to include to make her overall performance much better.

    I didn’t watch The View on the day in question, so I don’t know what happened in terms of the context of what was said. So I don’t know if Joy Behar and Ms. Collins noticed what I did or if they were just poking fun for laughs. But like I said, the content of the monologue was good, unique and moving.

    Since the two women on The View did apologize and did what they could to make amends, maybe they should be given a second chance.

    • Gmbenet

      September 19, 2015 at 8:47 am

      What is so ironic to me regarding a matter is some feel nurses are underappreciated. Maybe so. But in this case a real actress could have made a huge difference. So everybody is important in their respective professions at different times!

    September 19, 2015 at 8:34 am

    I think it’s funny that a few people say they’re not going to buy products from the advertisers dumping the show. I’m sure outfits like J & J will miss those 5 customers. Let’s be honest, the show is run by a bunch of moronic big mouths with small brains.

    It’s way past time to cancel The View. Whoopi is the worst, moody as hell and a horrible moderator. Joy, Michelle and Raven really suck also. This ship has sailed.

    • Harry

      September 19, 2015 at 12:21 pm

      I like Joy–I liked Nicole Wallace but The View stupidly let her go.
      Honestly, I was more upset about Whoopi’s “it’s not rape-rape” comment as well as her defense of Bill Cosby in the face of fifty rape allegations. I did not see this kind of collective and hysterical outrage garnered against Whoopi for those comments/defense as I am seeing being waged against Joy for her innocent query about the stethoscope.
      But I do agree with you–it’s time to cancel The View but not because of this latest brau ha ha.

      • CeeCee

        September 19, 2015 at 2:18 pm

        Right on, Harry!! I always loved Whoopi. But that comment…not really rape, rape, just turned all my lights off.

      • blake

        September 19, 2015 at 4:19 pm

        Yeah Whoopi is the worst. She’s always defending her Hollyweird pals like Bill Cosby and director Roman P. that had sex with the underaged girl. But I’m sure Whoopi went off about Jared at Subway since he’s not a friend.

      • Rose

        September 20, 2015 at 5:31 am

        Harry…After reading one of your comments, one of the reasons I quit watching the view was Elizabeth. I don’t mind different points of view and spirited debates, but I don’t need an evangelist shill for a political party. Also Sherri drove me nuts. This is when I did like a Joy because she took her on. But I don’t really like Joy’s sense of “humor” many times, or her and Whoopi’s defense of what I call anti-comedians who do standup by insulting, not being really funny.

      • Rose

        September 20, 2015 at 5:32 am

    Kelly’s message was about what is important to her and relevant in all our lives was Bold and Brave . Performing a monologue is not easy and she did it with grace and honest emotion. It is disappointing that the women on The View missed it . Their glib shallowness was revealed.

    • Rose

      September 20, 2015 at 5:43 am

      Wendy…I think you are so right. We always applaud other “hero acts” all of the time, usually military, or even the American guys visiting in Europe who tackled the terrorist on the train, etc. It would have been nice if they actually listened to what Kelly said, and realized what she and many others try to do for loved ones and friends can also be appreciated. They could have talked in a positive way about how she broke beauty pageant cliche’ with her monologue. Instead they made a joke of her “uniform” and not doing the typical tap dance.

    .. Sponsor panic
    they fear the power of twitter, which can make or break anything..
    The sponsors fear the news media, who no longer just report the news they use and exploit some stories for entertainment to get viewers.
    The days of Walter Cronkite when news was told as news is long gone- now anything controversial is used to entertain..
    And that is why the sponsor tucked tail and ran, for their protection .

    If cancellation were threatened anytime a View panelist said something offensive, there would be a non-stop cloud of cancellation over the show.

    That said, for me, Joy Behar is the true star and only tolerable personality in the show’s history. She is also a comedian, so let’s give her a little leeway.

      James? I love you, ….how wise art thou? Last time I looked, freedom of speech was still alive. Do not put your hand in the fire if you know it will burn you. As I said, when in the public eye, there will always be the potential of getting squashed. Everyone on this site has spoken, given his/her opinion…..some very offensive; actually worse than what Joy said….which I, personally did not find offensive. Name calling? Are we in kindergarten? Recess time?

        Love backatcha, CeeCee! Thanks for replying to me and giving me your kind words. I have since read all the current posts on this topic, including your stunning opinions and insights. And I have to applaud you for your wisdom, intelligence, and sensitivity! Sincerely… You are terrific!

        Further, I think that, what a lot of this boils down to is politics. Joy represents the Left, the way that Elisabeth represented the Right. So, depending on which basic side one finds political allegiance, that will probably color one’s opinions of a particular panelist.

        I realize that I was being obviously partial to Joy, but at the same time, I was implicitly disparaging all other View panelists. Such was not my intent. To be fair, I have enjoyed other panelists over the years, including the highly intelligent and charming Nicole Wallace, the ground-breaking, trail-blazing Barbara Walters, the sincere, jubilant Meredith Viera, and sometimes witty Whoopi. Still, Joy is my favorite, and that was my main point. Plus, much of what she says is for humorous effect. As we all know, attempts at humor are not always successful. I’ve certainly been guilty of such failed attempts, among much, much more!

        Finally, CeeCee, your point about freedom of speech is massive. That’s just one reason we are all here at these message boards — because we want to express our opinions, and we have the freedom to do so. I realize that when I go negative (paging GH’s Sonny), it’s because I feel deeply about what is wrong (in my opinion) about my formerly long-time favorite soap. But it is inescapable that there are plenty of fans who enjoy that character and the actor (Benard). I don’t mean to besmirch those with a differing viewpoint. I only want to have my say, cast my vote as it were. I may be outnumbered, I may be delusional, and I may be long-winded ( 🙂 ). But I will try to respect all viewpoints, as you, my friend, CeeCee, do so very successfully all the time.

        The best to you and to all our fellow “panelists” here at the Fairman site!!

        @James75.
        Hi James,
        I wish I were as diplomatic with my words as you.
        I have thoroughly enjoyed what you wrote. I hear you!!!! And, I am so glad you hear me. As Harry does. I joke around a lot, but I have been told since I was a little girl, by my Scottish grandmother, that I am too old for my age. Ergo, I thank you for the accolades.
        Mr. Fairman should be awarded for giving us this platform. I do not feel any regret talking about a character such as Sonny Corinthos, and his ilk.
        Regardless of what anyone may say that the character IS the actor….the subject matter demands a comment, demeaning or no. These celebrities do have a thick skin and if they don’t, then, they are in the wrong business. Once you reach that pinnacle of success, you are open for debate, as it were. One cannot complain about the backlash. He/she has put himself/herself there. I respect and admire your sensibility and sensitivity. Later, my friend.

        I don’t care if someone knows, intellectually, there can be comments both yea and nay about them, their characters, performances when they put themselves out there for the public. They are still people with emotions. And if I’m to believe what I’ve read and heard in interviews, not all performers are made of the “sterner stuff”/”thick skins” where they are not affected or hurt by comments that can only make the critic with their free speech feel good. Except for maybe Donald Trump.

        And since we seem to be a people who are against bullying kids online, especially kids to kids, and anonymous, how are some forms of adult “ridicule” and “opinion” any different?

        I’m not perfect ( especially when it came to Fluke), but I would rather be positive, or just say nothing at all.

      As Spiderman’s uncle might say…”With great power (in this case, freedom of speech) comes great responsibility.” Remember there are people with feelings and opinions on the receiving end of certain comments and “humor.” So the other side of free speech, don’t be surprised on how some people “hear” it.

      Luckily for us there’s a lot of fairness and respect on MF’s site, no matter which side of an issue/story/etc you might be on, compared to some other forums out there.

      • CeeCee

        September 21, 2015 at 8:22 am

        Right on, Rose. Exactly my point. What was said was not world-ending. The sky did not fall. There are extremists who translate what they hear in a completely different way. I am not talking about making jokes at the expense of another. As someone already said, no one was making fun of the profession, but of the chosen subject. I repeat, Rose….when someone puts herself/himself on a certain platform, she/he will be subject to both praise and ridicule. They know that. So, to blindly climb this mountain without a strong backbone is a fallacy. And, frankly, being older ( which some people seem to think) does not make a body either smarter or wiser. No recalcitrant child here. Thank you for your quote and input., much appreciated.

        September 21, 2015 at 3:19 pm

        Well, Rose. I admire your positivity. But this is not a la-di-da world. There is bullying and then there’s bullying. We are not talking about children. Apples and oranges. Any form of bullying a child is despicable. That, comes from the home. Some people have a chip on their shoulder and have a need to needle and jump on someone’s every word. Those are people with issues. I now find this very droll and inconsequential. But, to compare such an act of cruelty to a comment made on THE VIEW is ridiculous. Why are we on this site? To debate…to share opinions. I gave mine, you gave yours. All is good. I will not go into this with you, Rose. It feels like déjà-vu. Your persistence sounds so familiar. I cede you the floor. …..hopefully, this does not become the never-ending story.

    Much ado about nothing all the way around – when did we get to be a nation of crybabies where COMEDIANS can’t make fun of someone? Geez, lighten up, people. (You can argue how funny someone is or isn’t, but calling them “hags” isn’t really a necessary part of the conversation – and by the way, why can’t Joy say something harmless like ‘why does she have a stethsoscope” but you are “she’s this and she’s that” about Joy and the others. Geez, check yourself in the mirror, people).

    Its about time someone steps up and makes the RIGHT decision and ignores the possible financial effects! Nurses are SO freakin important to this world! They dont make enough money, dont get enough respect and work terrible hours! Next time you bump into a nurse, thank him or her for their tireless efforts in keeping America healthy!

    Good. Take the damn thing off the air. Why would the opinions of a bunch of people sitting round gossiping be taken as important or valid? At least Barbara Walters was a journalist and actually had interviewed and met many of the worlds political and social leaders. These other women? Who cares what they think about anything?

    Good try bringing all the nurses on your show. Shame it didn’t work! What is so wonderful about these women. Joy had two shows that failed. Yes, she went to college, so did the nurses! A lot of people went to college, but they do not insult someone who works as hard as a nurse. I have five nurses in my family and they picked on the wrong person, as I personally take it as an insult. Don’t mess with my kids! By the way, I am very very proud of all of them!

‘Strahan, Sara and Keke’ Canceled by ABC; Show Aired In Timeslot That Once Housed ‘All My Children’

No matter a network tries to do, replacing All My Children, which ran for 41 years on ABC has remained as everyone that follows the world of daytime drama knows, problematic.  Now come word via Page Six that Strahan, Sara and Keke has been canceled.

The show hosted by Michael Strahan, Sara Haines and Keke Palmer if you recall, replaced the foodie show, The Chew which ran for seven seasons and was the first show to air in the timeslot that belonged for over four decades to All My Children. 

Back in March of this year, Strahan, Sara and Keke took a break to make way for ABC’s News  Pandemic: What You Need to Know, a daily coronavirus report anchored by Amy Robach, Dr. Jen Ashton and sometimes TJ Holmes.

However, because the show did well in that two-week experimental run it morphed into GMA 3: What You Need to Know.  The new version of the show also talked about hot topics in the current news cycle, as well.

ABC’s Catherine McKenzie began producing the “GMA3” show four months ago and the network officially announced her as Executive Producer of the program on Thursday.

While ABC has yet to officially announce Strahan, Sara and Keke is over, a spokesperson told Page Six: “We’re proud of our teams at ‘SSK’ and ‘GMA3’ and how quickly they transitioned to producing a daily show to give people the news and information they need during an unprecedented pandemic, and conversations continue about how the show will evolve in the months ahead.”

It appears that Strahan, Sara and Keke won’t be returning; the future as many of their staff have transitioned over to ‘GMA 3’ with producers from ABC News Live, (the streaming division), helmed by McKenzie.

As for the futures of Strahan, Haines and Palmer; Strahan will continues to host Good Morning America, and they are all actively under contract with the network.

So, what do you think of  ‘Strahan, Sara and Kek’e being replaced by ‘GMA 3: What You  Need to Know’?  How long do you think that show will last in the timeslot once taken up by residents of Pine Valley? Comment below.

Eva LaRue Talks On Her Daytime Emmy Nomination, And Opens Up About The Loss Of John Callahan

For Eva LaRue, the past two months have been some of the most emotionally gut-wrenching and challenging of her life, following the passing of her ex-husband, father of her child, and dearest friend, John Callahan (Ex-Edmund, All My Children). The outpouring of support she has received not only from her former AMC cast mates, but the soap world in general illustrates just how dear Eva is to all of us, and how many people had special memories of their time with John.

While mourning the loss of Callahan along with their daughter, Kaya, there was some heartwarming and re-affirming news that any actress would love to hear. Eva was nominated for a Daytime Emmy in the Outstanding Guest Performer in a Drama Series for her work as Celeste Rosales on CBS’ The Young and the Restless, and she is great company as her former AMC co-star Michael E. Knight (Ex-Tad) is also nominated along with her for his work on General Hospital.

The coronavirus pandemic has hit our country and world hard, but through it All My Children virtual reunions emerged as fans were engaged by the content, transported to happier times that brought them back to familiar faces in Pine Valley in which Eva participated along with her good friends, Kelly Ripa, Mark Consuelos and so many more, thanks to the EW. com weeklong event which concluded on Friday.

Michael Fairman TV talked with Eva in this very candid, at times heartbreaking, and open conversation where she shares details into the final days of her beloved John, her last moments with him, and how she tried to plan a memorial in his honor during the COVID-19 pandemic.

For so many of us, 2020 has certainly seen more lows then highs, but in the end for Eva, to receive a nomination now (an award she was last nominated for back in 1997 as Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for her work as Dr Maria Santos on All My Children) couldn’t have come at a better time. Here now is our conversation with Eva.

I’ve been thinking so much about you.  I’m glad we could do this, and in the midst of the tragedy of losing John Callahan, and then receiving a Daytime Emmy nomination.  What was your reaction when you learned you were nominated in a category with none other than your former AMC castmate and good friend, Michael E. Knight (Ex-Tad, AMC, now Martin, GH)?

EVA:  Oh, I know!  He’s the first person I texted!  I was like, “Congratulations, Michael!  Did you ever in a million years think that you and I would be in the same category of anything?”  Then I said, “And when you win this, can I just borrow it for the weekend just to dress it up and take pictures with it… just want to borrow it, just babysit the trophy for a weekend, please?” (Laughs)

What did you end up submitting that landed you the nomination for your role as Celeste on Y&R?

EVA: I submitted a scene with Peter Bergman (Jack, Y&R), who I have been friends for 30 years, if not more, and in all that time we had never worked together.  I met him when I was married to John O’Hurley (Ex- Dr. James Grainger) because John was over at The Young and the Restless at the time.  I went to a Christmas party with John to Peter and Mariellen’s house, and do you know who else was there?  Lisa Rinna (Ex-Billie, Days), and it was before she had gotten Days of Our Lives. She was dating Peter Barton (Ex-Scott Grainger, Y&R) at the time. We both ended up on soaps at the same time.  So, I submitted a scene with Peter, who is amazing, warm and open and such a great actor. Then I submitted a scene with my on-screen daughter Sasha Calle (Lola, Y&R) – I love that girl, and another one with Michelle Stafford (Phyllis, Y&R) who has also been my great friend for a couple of decades. The other scene I put on my reel was with me and Jordi Vilasuso (Rey, Y&R) who I also adore.  He is awesome and such a sweetheart.  I only had two months worth of material to draw upon.  So, I just submitted the scenes that I liked the best, and they all were within story, and all made sense.

Where is Celeste supposed to be now?

EVA:  She went back to Florida, and that was that. I would never say never to anything, but it was always supposed to be a short stint, and it was great.

So not only is it you and Michael E. Knight, but Jeffery Vincent Parise, Chrishell Stause, and Elissa Kapneck. This Guest Performer category is loaded!

EVA:  I know! I know and love, Chrishell (Ex-Amanda) because we worked together on All My Children, too, right before I left, and she is a doll.  She just might be the sweetest, kindest, girl on the planet.  She literally might be the sweetest person who ever lived!  I don’t know the other two nominees personally.  So, I’m excited for them too.  It’s such a diverse category.  It’s just really fun to be nominated with all of them.

You were nominated before, though, for your work as Maria on All My Chldren during the emotional baby switch storyline; working opposite Susan Lucci (Ex-Erica) for a lot in it.

EVA:  Yes.  I was nominated for Best Supporting Actress for All My Children, and I was nominated for Best Original Song.  I wrote a song when Maria came ‘back from the dead’ to All My Children, with a producer friend of mine from Miami Sound Machine.

So, you’ve been doing all of these All My Children virtual reunions, which is so interesting that in this pandemic, people are looking for content, and they dip back into these beloved shows.  Was it fun doing the EW.com Santos Family reunion with everybody?

EVA:  Oh yeah, it was really, really fun.  I only saw in the big picture everybody else’s photo who was a part of it, and the people who I actually do hang out with the most, and see the most, and talk to the most, are Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley), Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo), and Sydney Penny (Ex-Julia).  I don’t see Sydney as much, but I do see her probably once every two years at least, but Sarah Michelle Geller (ExKendall) I see all the time and talk to all the time.  Kelly, Mark, and Sarah are the ones who walked me through that first week when John Callahan passed.  They literally were on the phone with me, the three of them, almost every day, but I got beautiful outreach, from what seemed like everyone.  This is when no matter how many years have passed since you have been in daytime, that the daytime family as a group – there used to be fifteen shows, now there are four – and people have bounced around and they are on other shows- – but the entire soap opera community reached out,   I cannot even tell you how much that meant to me.  It was overwhelming, and it was really, spectacularly beautiful.

Photo: JPI

I hope it was some solace to you knowing how much people loved John, and also that they love and care so deeply for you.

EVA:  I mean, people who did not even work with John reached out.  Every soap was represented by getting a hold of me, sending a text or a phone call, or if they didn’t have my personal information, they tweeted, or whatever it was… literally from every reach of soapdom.  It was amazing.

And your relationship with John was amazing with all of the ups and downs you went through; that you remained such dear friends.

EVA:  We remained really great friends all the way.

Photo: JPI

I so remember when the two of you first got together and it was this storybook real life soap couple romance.  John was always so sweet to me.  I was so, so sad, and you know, my heart just broke for you.

EVA:  I think it was just such a shock.  I don’t think anybody, and even Kaya were talking about it, because she graduated this week, and her dad is not here.  We’re not having a graduation, because of COVID-19, which sucks on top of it, but we were just kind of talking through the feelings of it.  She said, “You know what’s weird?  I guess I never pictured dad getting old, and I always wondered why, and now I know.”  When I would get on John about his heart or his health, he used to always say, ‘Oh, don’t worry Evala, (he always called me “Evala”).  I’m going to be here.  I’m going to be here a long time.  I’m fine.  I’m going to be here to walk Kaya down the aisle and see her kids and all that.  Stop worrying,” Every time he said it to me, something in my gut said, “I don’t think he is.  I don’t think he is,” but I always just dismissed that.  But never in my wildest dreams did I think John wouldn’t make it to her high school graduation.  He was only 66.

Photo: JPI

I had heard you ended up running to Palm Springs to be near John.  I can’t even imagine what that must have been like.

EVA:  The only good thing about this pandemic is that we had been shut down for only two weeks at that point.  Kaya and I got in the car.  John had some heart procedures the day before, on a Thursday.  I called him in the morning before he went in for the procedure.  I said, “Call me as soon as you get out of there.  Call me as soon as you come-to again, and you’re good,” and he said, “Okay, I will.”  I said, “I’m going to send Kaya out to you on Friday for the weekend, just so you have somebody to hang out and watch you, and I might come out too,” And then, I said, “Maybe, I’ll come down too in case you are feeling weak, just to watch out for you for the weekend.”   So, he called me after the procedure.   I said, “I cannot believe they sent you home! You just had some major heart stuff done.”  He said, “Oh no, they said I’m fine.  It was just run-of-the-mill heart stuff, angiogram…”  I was like, “Are you sure?”  He said, “Yeah, I’m fine.  I’m just tired.  I’m going to go to sleep.”  I said, “Do you want me to send Kaya out tonight?” and he was like, “No, no, no.  Send her tomorrow.”  So, in the morning, I called him at 9:00am.  No answer.  I texted him.  He always texted me like Johnny on the spot, and then texts me immediately back.  So, I call him again at 10.  Nothing.  His best friend calls me about a half-hour later, “Hey, I talked to John at about 8:00 this morning.  He said he was feeling really, really shitty and was going to go back to the hospital, and then, I texted him again at like 8:30 to just tell him something, and he hasn’t texted me back, and he always texts me immediately back.”  I said, “Oh my, God, I’ve been trying to get a hold of him for two hours; he hasn’t texted me back,”   I said, “You know what, I’ll call you back.”  So, I called his friend who lives down the street from John, and I said, “Go to his house, please right this second, knock on the door, jump the fence, knock on his bedroom, he might be asleep, I don’t know.”  So, he gets there, nobody is answering.  I said, “Break into the house please.  So, he did, and John was collapsed in the bathroom.  They called the paramedics, and as soon as they called me back and said, “John is unresponsive in the bathroom,” Kaya and I threw everything in the car, and what usually takes us two and a half hours without traffic, we made it down there from Los Angeles in an hour and forty-five minutes.

Photo: JPI

I don’t know how you made it down there in one piece. Thank, God!

EVA:  I drove so fast, like literally broke all land speed records and thank God because we got there just in time.  He was in emergency.  He hadn’t been put up in ICU yet, where we wouldn’t have been able to see him.  They weren’t going to let us in the hospital.  Thank God the person answering the door was an All My Children fan.  She was the one saying, “Sorry, no one is allowed in the hospital, no one can come in,” and I was like, “No, no, no, my ex-husband just came in.”  She said, “Was it Edmund?” and I said, “Yes, it was Edmund!”  She said, “Okay, follow me.”  Thank God for All My Children.  Thank God.  So, we followed this woman secretly, and we get to spend a half-hour with him in Emergency.  He was already on life-support, totally unresponsive, but we got to play John his favorite music, we got to just sit there and hold his hand and talk to him, and tell him how much we loved him.  Sarah Michelle Gellar called right when we were in the hospital in Emergency, and she said, “Put the phone by his ear,” so I put the phone by his ear, and she talked to John too, and she told him how much she loved him.  She used to always call him “GP”, which was short of grandpa, because she came on the show when she was 15, and she didn’t have a dad, and John acted like a dad to her – but she used to always call him “grandpa”, and he hated “grandpa”, so he was like, “You can call me “GP”, but not grandpa,” so she always called him GP.  I just put the phone by John’s ear, and what was crazy is that when she talked to him, his feet started twitching.  He started moving his feet.  Then, when Kaya was talking to him about Yankee season, he started moving his feet.  We were kind of hopeful that something was changing for the better.  We had about a half-hour with him, and then, they took him up to ICU, and then, we knew we couldn’t see him again.  They called us later that night that he had passed.

Photo: JPI

I am just so thankful that you got to see John one last time.

EVA:  I thank God every day that we got to say goodbye, because if we hadn’t gotten there in time to say goodbye, I just don’t know.

It’s very rare that a couple after a divorce, who have a child, and went from romance to dear friends, end up maintaining that relationship so many years later in their lives.  I know so many people who were together at one point in their lives, for years, and they don’t even talk to each other now.

EVA:  Well, you know, like any divorce, the first four years afterwards were super contentious but then, by year five, we kind of had this major breakthrough, and from then on, he was one of my closest friends, and one of the things we always kept alive for each other was we loved to  dance together. We fell in love, I think, dancing because originally our characters on AMC met at this country-western bar, and we had to take country line dancing lessons on the show.  They hired a choreographer for us so that during those scenes where we were falling in love, we would actually be able to do a two-step! So, we went out and practiced at Denim and Diamonds, which was a big country-western place in New York City at the time.  We used to go out with a whole group of us.  It was me, and Teresa Blake (Ex-Gloria) and Kelly Ripa, and her boyfriend at the time, Winsor Harmon (Ex-Del), sometimes Walt Willey (Ex-Jack); we just had a whole crew of us who would go out country dancing.  John and I also loved singing together.  He had the most amazing gravely kind of rockstar voice, but his real talent was harmonizing.  He could harmonize to anything.  So, when he would come over, we would sit in the kitchen and sing, and sing, and sing until the late hours because that’s what we loved to do, and that’s what he loved to do.  That’s one of my favorite last memories of us.  He was just over the month before, and Kaya’s bedroom is near the kitchen, so she came out and was like, “Can you two shut up?”  It was like two in the morning and we were still singing in the kitchen. (Laughs)  John was my dear friend and my confidant.

Were you able to have some kind of service during this stay-at-home pandemic we are all dealing with, in order to mourn the loss of John?

EVA:  It’s been so crazy.  We couldn’t even have a funeral.  That’s what made it all the more heartbreaking.  There were less than twenty of us, and we just got on a Zoom call and memorialized John.   I thought we were going to do a big Zoom memorial, but it seemed so overwhelming and so impersonal, it just was rubbing us wrong in every way.  Every way we were looking at it, we were like, “Oh my, God, we just can’t.”  We wanted to invite everybody he had ever worked with, and we were like, “No, we want to do that when everything can open back up again, and invite every person, and have a party” because John was always the life of every party.  Maybe we can do that in the fall or next year.  I kept trying to write something for the small memorial we did do for three days.  I kept coming back to this one song, because John was always the consummate bartender, too.  I sang a song that Bette Midler sang on the very last episode of Johnny Carson.  It was “One for My Baby (and One More for the Road)” and it’s about a bartender who has got a big personality and a lot to say.   I changed some of the words around a bit just to reflect who John was, and so, I ended up singing for it instead of speaking.  We always talked about that last episode of Carson; how stunningly emotional it was when Bette sang that song to kind of sing Johnny off for of all of his years on the air.  So, that’s what I did and because we loved to sing together, it just made sense.

I do think you touched upon something, earlier, too.  I don’t think any other genre would have that kind of unbridled camaraderie.  It’s such a family, like you said.  I don’t think you would find that quite like this; certainly in show business. 

EVA:  I really don’t think you can. Even though there is always a good amount of competition in the soaps as well; between the soaps it’s like they are any sports team, but there is always a level of respect, love, and familial connection within the community.  I think that is why they have stood the test of time.  I really do think that is what hooks our audience, that is what keeps them there after all of these years, even though unfortunately the genre is antiquated looking, there is something about it that is nostalgic, familial, and comfortable for people.

Every time I talk about All My Children, why do you think everybody go ga-ga for it, when it’s been off the air for several years now?

EVA:  It speaks to people’s childhoods.  It speaks to how we grew up.  You can’t undo nostalgia.  You can’t.  It’s in the way we grew up, the things we loved, the things that we scheduled our lives around, the people we fell in love with on the shows that we watched, who we cared about and loved their storylines. I grew up watching All My Children, General Hospital, and Days of Our Lives.

It must have been a spectacular moment for you when you realized you were actually in Pine Valley and a member of the cast of All My Children then?

EVA:  It was amazing.  I was a fan when I got the show.  I was a straight up fan.  I fangirled walking through that dressing room hallway for the first time! I was trying to keep it in check, but you know … (Laughs)

So, in closing, you would say, “Thrilled to be nominated”?

EVA:  Yes.  So fun.  It has really been a rollercoaster of a couple of months here.  That nomination was literally the bright, shining spot in all of this.

So, happy to hear Eva is in the running for a Daytime Emmy? Were you moved by Eva’s sentiments she shared on her relationship with the late John Callahan? Do you miss Pine Valley’s Dr. Maria Santos? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
