We have always been of the opinion that executive producer Bill Geddie of The View is a man of good judgment and discerning taste in guests. The ABC morning talk show pulled in the cream of the crop and received a huge ratings boost during the political cycle that culminated with the election of Barack Obama.
That was then, this is now. We have to question Bill’s admitted “obsession” with The Hills Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt, the MTV reality couple that everyone loves to ‘diss’. We’re not the only ones puzzled with his fascination. Others that don’t get it are the ladies of The View: Barbara Walters, Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Sherri Shepherd.
Geddie, who is taking the show on the road to Los Angeles for a week in March, has booked the ‘lightweight’ couple, who are reported to have tied the knot in a bogus marriage ceremony that isn’t binding in the U.S. He acknowledged that The View co-hosts said, “Why are you booking them again?” According to Geddie, “There’s something about them that sort of encapsulates the age we live in.”
The week out west begins on March 9 and will be broadcast from the Disney lot in Burbank.
