She’ll be a guest host June 18th!
Sayeth The Associated Press:
will be a guest host on “The View” on June 18. The popular ABC daytime talk show had invited her to be a guest this month, but she sent back word that she would like to be a host like Cindy McCain did in April, said Bill Geddie, the show’s executive producer.
“Equal time — that’s hard to argue with,” he said Wednesday.
Being a guest host will allow Michelle Obama to help interview guests and participate in the opening “hot topics,” or banter about what’s in the news that day. It offers the chance for someone to show a more complete personality than just sitting for an interview and talking about themselves, Geddie said.
I’m always frightened for anyone who goes on The View, mostly because it’s like an estrogen fueled Lionesses’ den. But Michelle should be more than capable of holding her own. Plus, Whoopi Goldberg isn’t nearly as nutters as Rosie O’Donnell, although I really wonder what exiled former View co-host Star Jones would do in a Michelle O. interview.
Oh, well! Set your calendars Michelle-a-holics!
