Whatchoo talkin' 'bout, Walters?

I watch The View.

I know. But you have to admit, as far as talk shows go, it's head and shoulders above the rest. Not that that's saying much.

And I usually spend most of the hour cursing Elizabeth in my head.

Last week she was blabbering on about the sanctity of broadcast television.



Normally nothing said on The View (or any show) bothers me enough to do anything.

1. It's TV

2. If I did something every time someone said something that bothered me, well, I'd be doing A LOT of stuff.

But today Barbara crossed the line.

Well, if I being really honest, her hair crossed the line last week.

What is up with her hair this year? It is not pretty.

(I'd show you a picture but apparently there are no pictures of Barbara in 2012 on the internet.)

This morning the ladies were talking about the Golden Globes and, of course, all the fabulous gowns and dresses of the night. And they talked about Ricky Gervais' comments about Madonna and her sex life.

I don't know about you but I am dying to hear about the goings on of Madonna's ray of light.

Not really.

Then they switched to Angelina Jolie.

Blah, blah, blah....

I wish I had the conversation on video. But I don't. So you'll just have to settle for my recap.

The ladies were talking about Angelina and her dress and how skinny she is (blah, blah, blah) and then "Well, look at Madonna...."

The gist of the conversation was that Barbara thinks both Madonna and Angelina need to cut back on the weights BIG TIME.

Because nobody likes a woman with lots of muscles - especially big shoulders and super buff arms.


In case you missed the Globes, here is a side by side of muscly monsters:


I don't even know what to say here. How could ANYONE ever think that these woman are super buff? Or that they're arms are far too muscular.

Angelina needs to eat a freaking sandwich. Dipped in gravy.

She does not look muscular, she looks anorexic.

Madonna, for once, looks like a normal human being. Well, except for her off-putting cleavage. Either way, not 'too muscular' by any means.

What I was most bothered by was Barbara Walters saying how woman should not have big muscles because it is not attractive - and then using two stick-figured celebs as examples of what 'too much muscle' looks like.

No, Barbara. Just no.

You know what too much muscle is?



And to look like this, a woman would need to spend YEARS practically living in the gym and juicing herself full of steroids.

I don't doubt Madge and Angie have injected themselves with a few concoctions over the years but I highly doubt anabolic steroids was one of them.

Shame on you, Barbara. You are perpetuating the notion that woman should be delicate little creatures who bunny hop out miles and miles and miles on treadmills and ellipticals. There is nothing wrong with women lifting weights (that are not pink or 5 lbs) and there is nothing wrong with women who have muscles.
