In the swirl of 'The View,' a stabilizing force
Boston Globe - United States - On the day Barack Obama came in to gab with the ladies of "The View," Joy Behar was sick. Some-nasty-virus, in-need-of-chicken-soup sick, so sick that she skipped the 11 a.m. live show to stay in bed. But for the Obama episode, taped that afternoon to air the following day, she dragged herself into the ABC studios, arriving backstage with a wan smile.

Whoopi Goldberg seems sad over being left out of a montage of Oscar hosts
Boston Herald - United States - Whoopi Goldberg seemed sad and choked up on "The View" Monday when her fellow co-hosts discussed how she was not included in a montage featuring Oscar hosts during the Academy Awards telecast.

The 52-year-old Goldberg has received two Oscar nominations, winning for her role as Oda Mae Brown in 1990’s "Ghost." She hosted the event in 1994, 1996, 1999 and 2002. She did, however, appear as an Oscar winner in a separate montage Sunday night.

Goldberg appeared stumped that the academy would leave her out of the one clip, as well as repeat host Steve Martin.

"Maybe they accidentally lost a clip of
