    MK's view on things


    I stayed home and taped the view. They had a lot of fun.

    Many topics were covered:

    1. Sexual fantasies: and that discussion evolved into metaphors of food, appetizers, and entree. Michelle said she likes desert.

    2. Making fun of some celeb couples, Harrison Ford and KF, and Ryder and Paccino.

    3. Briefly talked about the American idol
    4. Unwanted animals and pests in their gardens. Michelle said she has problems withants

    5. Women's health, and women's life expectancy is 4 years > men. Michelle said it must be the menstrual cycle, the
    <strong>exfoliation</strong>. So the group had fun throughout the rest of the hour about exfoliation. They talked about soft addictions, ie addiction to the tv, food etc

    6. A woman cardiologist was a guest, and she talked about women and heart attack.

    7. Bill Maler?? was also in the show,and he teased about exfoliation.

    Michelle participated reasonably well, you can tell that she did her homework, and she read the cardioloogist book.

    Michelle looked very relax and beautiful, she showed off her lovely shoulders.

    The other 3 women said the ice has preserved Michelle well, she looks great. Meredith said, it was fun having Michelle.

    I thought Michelle did fine, didn't you? About topic #1, it seemed like Michelle was on the side of saying that a little harmless fantasy is OK.

    Michelle likes Reuben on American idol.

    She fed Bill Maher (I think that's the right spelling) a straight line about low-riding jeans so he could get into his material about, what can a prostitute do to attract anyone when all the girls are walking around like that.

    Some of the people from the MK Forum were there in the audience. Over on that website they are talking about, oh I just saw so-and-so in the audience, ha ha. Very cute. Starr mentioned that they already have received more email about Michelle than about any other guest host. I think I'll write one, too. :lol: They also mentioned the USA Today poll that showed landing a quad as the hardest feat in sports.

    Michelle looked very pretty and handled herself with aplomb and grace.

    <blockquote><strong><em>Quote:</em></strong><hr>Michelle looked very pretty and handled herself with aplomb and grace.[/quote] ITA, Mathman. And Michelle may not be far off re women's longevity and menstruation. Some studies have suggested that men's higher levels of testosterone are what lead to a lot of their health problems. Although I don't know if the converse, ie, women's estrogen levels as health sustaining, has been suggested by the results of any studies, at least the lack of male levels of testosterone seems to be one possible factor.

    Figure skating has preserving one's looks. Never thought of it, but Peggy Fleming, Dorothy Hamill, Ludmilla Protopopov, and other ladies skaters seem to stay beautiful. When Viera said that I felt like saying, "I know you mean to compliment Michelle, but she is only 22!" In some of the Nordic countries like Finland the tradition is to take a sauna, jump into a freezing pond, and repeat several times as a health/longevity activity. There is some support for this too, with the idea being that it trains the body to withstand severe changes in temperature, which is a big deal to cellular physiology. So maybe the next trend we will see in gyms, now that aerobic, boxing, yoga, and stripper aerobics have hit their peak, is freezer aerobics.

    I thought Michelle did just great and kept up well with the banter, although I too wished they would have let her go on about sexual fantasies:evil: But the show is geared toward a new topic about every two minutes and a fast pace. Not surprised Michelle received most email of any guest. I keep thinking that somebody is going to have to replace Peggy Fleming someday and it seems like the timing should work out just right for it to be Michelle.

    I'm wtaching my tape right now....Michelle looks great. She's doing a pretty good job - it's hard to be the newbie in an established coffee clache. Maybe this is a test of what she may want to pursue in the future.

    I totally forgot about Bill Mahler's and the low riding jeans. BTW, I don't trust Maler or Maher, why can't they spell their name Mahler instead!!!! j/k

    I love Michelle's perfect oval shape face.

    I hope she will be a regular host at the view or some other shows someday.

    Does anyone know the reason why Michelle did this show? Was she asked by View? If you respond then I will tell you my impression of the show. First, I need to know why she did the show?

    When Lisa Ling left the show to work for National Geographic they announced that instead of replacing her right away they would use a series of celebrity guest hosts. I assume that Michelle was asked by the show. I am a big fan of both The View and Michelle Kwan and felt that she interacted less with the regulars than a lot of the previous guest hosts have. On the other hand most of the other guest hosts have been actors. I think that Michelle is too polite to just jump in there as is the norm for the hosts of this show.

    Re: MK's view on things


    Piel, thanks for the explanation. I think that Michelle was a whole lot out of her league. That was the first time I watched the View and probably will be the last time. It was very hard for me to keep track of the conversations when everyone was talking at the same time. It suprised me that Michelle would be on a show like this one. The reason I say that is when interviewed after a skate she basically says the same thing everytime and always is politically correct. I am not saying that that is good or bad thing. The View as I perceived it is that whoever is host or guest hosts have opinions about everything. I thought Michelle was very overpowered in the show. I was hoping that questions would be asked of Michelle and she would talk more about skating. Oh well, I guess it was good experience for her.

    Whatever that TV makeup was, she looked movie starrish. A pretty girl turned beautiful girl.

    Dee, I think anyone would be "out of their league" in a yak fest against those three ladies! They're pros!

    Dee, I disagree with you about Michelle being out of her league. I think she held her own just fine. I seen a lot of other guest host almost not talk as much as Michelle did. If you use your imagination, you can read into some of Michelle's comments...like men wanting dessert right away when they are having sex or like rgirl said...sexual fantasies and how Michelle was kind of supporting it but holding back...:evil: I feel dirty now, lol.

    I watched the beginning of today's episode this morning, and believe they are a lot worse than when Michelle was there. Imagine Star Jones bitching about AI and start rapping to 50 Cent then have Meredith go along with it trying to be fuuny. Then they talked to Janeanne Garafolo on the war and Fox News stuff, then they ignored her throughout the rest. I love Janeanne Garofolo, and they were repeatedly just going on and on, and she was just sitting there looking bored. Because of that, I'm surprised that Michelle got a say in almost all the subjects they discusses. I'm happy she guest co-hosted yesterday and not today. They were super super annoying today.

    Anyways, I loved MK's appearance b/c we got to see Michelle the person and not just Michelle the skater.

    THIZfiyaVIETgrl, that's ok that you disagree with my opinion. The only thing I guess I was trying to say was I was shocked at the sex discussion or let's say the making fun of it. I guess that's what sell though. I strongly value that I have the ability to learn and I didn't learn anything from that show. That's probably why I will never watch it again. Please don't get me wrong I am not a prude. Years ago I loved to watch Phil Donahue because of the variety of people he had on his shows and I even changed my views on lots of things. This was not even up to par with the Donahue show. I guess that's why it surprised me that Michelle would even consider being a guest host on the View. Just my opinion.

    I agree with you about The View. That show just gave me a headache this morning. It's not the most intelligent talk show out there, but it does have it's moments at times. To me, it's like four women who are trying to one-up each other with one liners and trying to get more camera time.
    I also think some of these women try to play into their stereotypes too often. Meredith Viery the older married professional super woman with kids role, Star Jones the single sassy black woman role, Joy Behar the one who does countless jokes trying to be funny as if she was the show's jester, and Barbara the old one who talks professionally but sometimes tries to act younger to look funny, and when Lisa Ling was there, she was young girl in her 20s who had a boyfriend with a tongue ring and likes to party, etc.
