Blind Vice! Scorned Talk-Show Queen Is Downfright Furious

New from Ted on Tuesday July 5 -

Blind Vice!  Scorned Talk-Show Queen Is Downright Furious

Hostess with the mostess Anita Sunshine is known for her strong views and mostly cheery disposition.
And while the chatty Kathy has been known to spar with her fellow showmates, nothing has ever been this big of an issue behind the scenes of the chatfest.
Well, until now, that is.
You see, these très-loyal cohosts used to be practically inseparable, even hanging out when the cameras stopped rolling! But it appears the glory days are over...
Turns out Anita's cohost wants to move on to greener pastures—ya know, pastures without Anita.
Oh and by greener, you bet your ass we mean money-wise. Anita's friend turned frenemy is looking at cashing in a serious paycheck if the next gig works out right. We're talking big-time Hollywood bucks here, peeps.
And Anita ain't happy about it!
In fact, she's downright pissed. And so is the rest of the show's team, who feel like Anita's right-hand guy or gal will be deserting everything they have built together.
But Anita's partner in crime already has one foot out the door, so it's just a matter of time before we hear what network this personality will be popping up on next!
We would watch out tho, Anita may seem all sugar and spice, but we wouldn't put it past this broad to seek some sort of revenge.
We're sure we'll be seeing you again real soon, Anita!
And It Ain't: Anne Curry, Wendy Williams, Ellen DeGeneres

Top suspect:  ladies of The View

I'm behind on this and haven't looked at recent eliminations yet. But I am thinking one of 2 routes: Hoda Ktob or Kathie Lee, or Elisabeth Hasselbeck and another View cohost.
I know a lot of people are going to guess Kelly Ripa for this but I am shouting NO to this. #1 she already has been a BV. And #2 it has been known for a while that Regis is leaving. So let's move past that.

I concur and I am liking the Sherri Shepard Elizabeth Hasselbeck /View guess. The strong views and cheery disposition and sparring with other cast mates sealed it for me. Like when Rosie and her were going at it on air with the split screen and everything.. yikes!

So thats my guess, Elizabeth is pissed Sherri is moving on to movies and such

medusa said...

This is a little confusing, as it sometimes it sounds like a show hosted by only two people: "Anita's right hand guy or gal," "Anita's partner in crime," etc. I am not that much of a View fan but are Sherri and Elisabeth considered each other's "right hand" and "partners in crime"? Are they that much of a "duo" within the larger group of hosts?

But these make it sound like more of an ensemble hosted show anyway: "fellow showmates," "rest of the show's team," "everything they've built together." So I guess it could go either way!

Doesn't sound like the cohost is making a move to movies, though - "just a matter of time before we hear what network this personality will be popping up on next" is clearly talking TV. And I personally have my fingers crossed for a whole series based on the "Queen of Jordan" reality show from "30 Rock."

I'm onboard with the Sherri and Elizabeth guess. Elizabeth is a bridesmaid in Sherri's wedding and they are always agreeing on issues. Elizabeth is probably pissed because with Sherri gone, there's no one in her corner to agree with her views.

sistah2 said...

I think it could be Sherri/Eliz. cuz I hear that Sherri has a sitcom deal. However, it could also be Kathie Lee/Hoda. We'll see.

renay83 said...

Its the other way around. Elizabeth is leaving for a job on Fox News to fill Glenn Beck's old time slot this Fall.

Denise said...

I am guessing Elizabeth and Sherry...Liz being Anita. "Right hand guy/girl" could refer to Sherrie sitting to the right of Elizabeth at the table.

mookie said...

could this be Julie Chen (for Anita Sunshine) and Leah Remini (for Chatty Kathy)?

Laura said...

I'm liking Kathie Lee and Hoda for this. They're really tight behind the scenes (hang out together, live in the same apartment building, etc.), but are always playfully sparring on camera. Hoda used to be a more serious-type journalist before she started on the Today Show, so I could see her wanting to go back to that and Kathie Lee not being too happy about that.

kristin said...

yea, but would you describe Kathy Lee as opinionated? tipsy maybe...
this is totally Hasselbeck

Rita said...

This looks to be so about The View, and Anita would be the all powerful Baba Walters!

As for the frenemy looking for greener pastures, it would be the funny lady who's been replacing on CNN often: Joy Behar. She's one of the originals with Barbara Walters on the show. As for Hasselbeck, Fox New had been knocking on her door for a while, but don't think it would be for much more money, although, it would be a one-woman show, showcasing her extreme right views.

sweetp58 said...

Definately Joy Behar. Haven't you noticed her dis-engaging on The View? She's getting a taste of success on her own, and why compete with 4 other shrews when you can get big bucks for a show of your own?

Rita said...

Stopped watching the View because of annoying Hasselbeck. Also, cannot believe they let Woopie defend Polanski on a show that centers on women's issues.
That being said, there is talk that Behar is set to replace Morgan, who replaced King, on his show on CNN.
And BabaWawa has no one but to blame but herself: you can see the way she sides with Hesselbeck all the time annoyed Joy to no end, especially on certain political issues where Hesselbeck was just being annoying and ignorant. It did seem like the blondies were sticking together. Barbara should've supported her oldest and most loyal colleague as well, also, the funniest!

Baba wawa for the win!

I know this is kind of old, but I am also behind this being The View with Sherri and Elizabeth.
I could also buy this being Kathie Lee, but not Hoda. I used to work with Hoda when she was still on local network TV and she was the nicest, least pretentious on air personality we had. Even after she went to network she always came in to say hi when she was in town. She's not vindictive in the slightest.

mookie said...

i've noticed on The View that the teams have been set: Whoopi and Joy on one team, Sherri on another, and Elisabeth and Baba Wawa on theirs.

this will not end well...

Rita said...

Based on the wording, I beliieve Anita is someone in charge and had given the other player almost out the door a big break in their career.

Because of this, I feel that Anita is Barbara Walters, when I used to watch the show, she would talk about hanging out a lot outside of work with her co-workers, specifically Hasselbeck and Behar often but seperately. Whether the other player in this BV is Behar or Hasselbeck (which I doubt, for who in Hollywood would hire her for her extreme right views, Fox does not truly count as Hollywood, Anita should be someone in charge and older like Ellen in the AI
As.

Barbara Wawa Walters for Anita would be my guess, still!

elizabetha said...

What about Kelly Ripa?

Rita said...

Who would be leaving her show?
Wouldn't be the other way around with Regis being Anita and giving Kelly a big break?

zjaan78 said...

Chelsea Handler and Chuy???

kit said...

After other stuff, guessing this is Oprah and Jenny McCarthy.

"
Dear Ted:
Every day, my rescue kitty, Little Rain and I settle in to watch The View, and recently, there have been some truly snarky exchanges between the gals. While

they all make a point to claim that the arguments onscreen have no effect on how BFF-like they are offscreen, Little Rain and I sense that all is not well

between these gabbers. Any tidbits you can share?
—RainsMom

Dear Daytime Diva-Fest:
Of course nothing is as peachy perfect as those broads would want you to think, but that shouldn't be surprising, like, at all. That said, these gals are

totally biz-oriented, so the on-camera feuds rarely make their way to the dressing room. Barbara Walters has got bigger things to worry about than whatever

conservative crap Elisabeth Hasselbeck is blabbing that day."

Rita said...

If Ted states that 'Barbara Walters has bigger things to worry than whatever conservative crap Elisabeth is blabbing that day'...

Doesn't that hints into the bv's statement:

...In fact, she's downright pissed. And so is the rest of the show's team who feel like Anita's right-hand guy or gal will be deserting everything they have built together...

My money is still for Barbara Walters for Anita, and the gal dealing a bigger hollywood deal would be Joy Behar.

Tracie said...

Given the recent fallout at The Talk, should we revisit the possibility that this could be Julie Chen?

keelyrae said...

It has to be Regis and Kelly... he just announced that he is leaving!

Rita said...

Tracie - I would agree if the lady in question leaving the show, Holly Robinson Peete, was actually leaving for a solo show with better income... Which I didn't hear she is. Julie Chen simply did not get along with her and wanted her gone.

Which doesn't fit the blind...

Rita said...

keelyrae - in order to fit the blind, it would have to be the other way around: Regis gave Kelly a chance, so she should be leaving for a better gig.

Or did I miss something in the blind?
