This morning on The View, an awkward situation arose, when while on the air, co-hosts, Sunny Hostin and Ana Navarro, where asked to leave the panel desk and exit the studio.

All of this happened before a live interview was scheduled to happen with Vice President Kamala Harris.  It was revealed that Hostin and Navarro tested positive for Covid-19, and were ‘breakthrough” cases since they had been previously vaccinated.

Host, Joy Behar delivered the news to the audience at home so they knew what was going on with the bizarre moment playing out on live TV, sharing,  “Ana and Sunny, at the last minute we realized they have tested positive for COVID so they have been taken off of the show.”

Harris, who had planned to join the ladies at the table, instead was going to be interviewed remotely from a different place in the ABC TV studio in New York, while Joy Behar and Sara Haines remained on the set.

As for Kamala Harris, Behar added: “It’s very important we keep her healthy and safe. The Secret Service is doing things to make her feel safe.”

While the delay was announced, Behar and Haines took questions from the in-studio audience.

Watch Behar below explain what was going on.

Then let us know, how do you feel The View handled the situation? Comment below.

Delta is EVERYWHERE and is evading the vaccine. Be safe and careful everyone!

I wish both ladies a quick and healthy recovery
But aside from that Sunny really needs a rest. Man, has she been cranky and a negative nellie constantly lately. I noticed as far as the new seasons concerned we really need a republican on the panel to balance the rest of the ladies especially Sunny. Geez. Hope she returns less shrill and grouchy. Love Ana though. I still think Jed she be brought back. Like Ana shes very clear and less emotional than say Sunny and Meagan. Its fine for most part but can be tiring when its all doom and gloom

I think Jed should be brought back, too! She is calm, clear headed and articulate – something that show could use more of…..

I have yet to see today’s episode of The View. I will watch it when it is released on Hulu in a few hours. According to a clip I saw on Twitter, the show acted urgently by removing Sunny and Ana off-set immediately prior to Vice President Kamala Harris joining the ladies at the Table. Thankfully, the interview with VP Harris was done remotely at ABC Studios. We have to protect everyone and especially our Madam VP. Can you imagine if they did the interview at the Table with just Joy and Sara and, what if, the Table had not been wiped down and sanitised? Thankfully, again, they conducted the interview remotely.

I feel awful for Sunny and Ana, even though both are vaccinated, I wish them both a speedy recovery. With Whoopi out due to her sciatica and Joy recently had the sniffles, the show may have to return to filming from home for a few weeks. They’ve got to make sure Joy and Sara, the producers, and all crew and all the players that help create the show daily, and make sure everyone is tested and retested. I don’t know how they can return to studio on Monday with Whoopi, Joy and Sara… is it safe for the rest of the crew, producers, hair and make-up team, etc… to return to in-studio after what transpired this morning? I bet ABC is sorting this out. I look forward to watching the entire episode in a few hours on Hulu. From the clip, I watched, Sara looked nervous and scared, though I have yet to see the entire segment.

Thank goodness, VP Harris was not brought on to set and the interview was handled accordingly to protect her safety and others. Wishing Sunny and Ana well and the entire team at The View.

These vaccines seem to be wearing off.

Totally fake! Done for ratings and whatever other political reason. We are to believe they JUST found out and it took everyone surprise at the last minute? Please! Desperate for viewers much?

If they did just find out, there should be some accountability (heads rolling). The safety measures taken were lax, especially where the second most powerful person in the leadership of our country is concerned!

Joy and Sara carried on with such ease. The humor was too notch! It reminded me of Carol Burnett Show.

The ladies should do a one variety show. They all the humor so well.

Oops.. I should proofread… “The ladies should do a comedy/ variety show for an episode. They all do humor and comedy so well.”

Jason George Returning to ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Main Cast for Upcoming Season

Soap opera alum Jason George (ex-Michael Bourne, Sunset Beach) is rejoining Grey’s Anatomy as a series regular for its upcoming 21st season.

According to Deadline, Jason will reprise his signature role of Ben Warren. Previously, the actor played Ben since season 6 of the ABC medical drama. Later, George became a series regular for seasons 12-14 before departing to join the ‘Grey’s’ spinoff, Station 19.

With Station 19 now canceled, it paved the way for George to bring Ben back to Seattle Grey’s Sloan. Over the past seven years, Jason was a mainstay on the firefighter drama and would make appearances and crossover to “Grey’s’.  Both series are produced by Shondaland and ABC signature.

In story, the seventh season of Station 19 had Ben tapping leaning into his medical skills while questioning his future as a firefighter in light of his shoulder injury. Then, in the Station 19 series finale, Ben told Captain Herrera that he was going back to finish his surgical residency. The story all fits together because when Ben was a fifth year resident at Grey Sloan, he found a way to pursue his other dream as a firefighter without jeopardizing his chances to return to the hospital and medicine one day.

George was featured on NBC’s Sunset Beach from 1997-1999 as lifeguard Michael Bourne and his love interest, Vanessa was played by Sherri Saum (ex-Keri, One Life to Live) who is also the wife of the late Kamar de los Reyes (ex-Antonio, One Life to Live)

In a post on X, following the story of his rejoining Grey’s Anatomy, George posted a video with the music from “Welcome Back Kotter” and the words “Well … it WAS kind of hush-hush. But now it’s official. Where my scrubs at?”

So, glad to hear Jason George is returning as a series regular to Grey’s Anatomy? Comment below.

General Hospital EP, Frank Valentini, Reveals Former Cast Member is Coming Back and Teases, “I Think That The Audience Will Go Crazy for HIM”

There are some big changes afoot at General Hospital over the summer, and one of the biggest ones was revealed by the series Daytime Emmy- winning executive producer, Frank Valentini.

After winning the series fourth consecutive Outstanding Daytime Drama Series award, and 17th overall in the history of the 61-year-old soap opera, Valentini spoke with ABC 7’s On the Red Carpet at the 51st annual Daytime Emmy Awards.

When asked what to expect coming up, the exec dropped a bombshell. Valentini shared, “A former cast member is coming back. And I think that the audience will go crazy for HIM.”

Now. speculation is running rampant of just who could it be! Is it possible that Jonathan Jackson will reprise his five-time Daytime Emmy-winning role of Lucky Spencer? Still others have thought it could actually be Greg Vaughan (because he may have wrapped his run on Days of our Lives months ago, along with Arianne Zucker, who departs later this summer on-screen) reprising the role of Lucky.

Could Valentini being referring to the return of John J. York as Mac Scorpio; who had to exit the series to undergo treatment for myelodysplastic syndromes and multiple smoldering myeloma (two blood and bone marrow disorders), but who recently returned a month ago to the set? Or, might it be the return of two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Bryan Craig, as a now very much alive Morgan Corinthos? Fans are also wondering if GH somehow lured Nicholas Chavez back to the role of Spencer Cassadine; a role he vacated at the beginning of this year to film his leading role in Ryan Murphy’s Monsters anthology series as convicted murderer Lyle Mendenez.

In addition, Steve Burton (Jason), Kate Mansi (Kristina), and GH head writer, Elizabeth Korte, also shared some storyline intel with On the Red Carpet of what lies ahead through the summer months for Jason, Kristina, and all of the Davis women.

Watch the entire video package below.

Now weigh-in, which male actor is returning to General Hospital? Who do you hope it will be? Share your theories via the comment section.
