‘The View’: Whoopi Goldberg knocks ‘Dancing with the Damned Stars’ — In a surprise result after she danced to her own TV theme song from The Brady Bunch, actor Florence Henderson was dropped from ABC’s Dancing with the Stars competition Tuesday night. Wednesday, on the network’s morning talk program, The View, Whoopi Goldberg said she was “upset” that Florence Henderson was eliminated from the program.
Says Ms. Goldberg (at least partly tongue in cheek, by the way):
“You know. I don’t usually get worked up over stuff, especially ‘Dancing with the Stars.’ Every now and then, I hit my limit, like all of you. But this is beyond everything, even beyond the other day [the Bill O’Reilly incident]. ‘Dancing with the Damned stars.’ I cannot believe that they cut Florence Henderson…she was voted off the show last night. But the chick in the monkey suit? She’s still there! She don’t have an ounce of rhythm. She is still there. Why is she there? She was in a monkey suit!”
The “chick in the monkey suit” was Bristol Palin who danced with her pro partner, Mark Ballas, to the theme of The Monkees. The pair started out their routine, indeed, in gorilla suits. The effort was to help improve Ms. Palin’s performance abilities, which have been pointed out by the judges as lacking.
Sherri Shepherd wondered whether the kiss from Barry Williamson who played Ms. Henderson’s son Greg Brady on The Brady Bunch “did Florence Henderson in?” The actor visited the dance pair in the studio during the week.
Elisabeth Hasselback suggested that Bristol Palin received more text votes than Florence Henderson, due to the ages of their respective fan bases.
Joy Behar said she thought the tea party fanbase is out supporting Bristol Palin because of her mother, former vice-presidential candidate, Sarah Palin, and that’s where her votes are coming from.
