Influence

I'm working from home today and even though I'm not over Rosie's departure from The View, I have the show on at the moment. Whoopi Goldberg is delightful and I'm enjoying her presence in the infamous moderator chair. One of today's guest is Monique Coleman of High school Musical fame.

Joining the cast on the couches, she was instantly star struck by her long time role model Whoopi Goldberg. She couldn't contain her tears and a torrent of gracious compliments erupted for her mentor. It was touching to watch. Whoopi sweetly wiped her tears and gave her a hug. Once Monique caught her breath she said, "Can I come to your house for Thanksgiving?"

My dream is to cover human rights stories with Ann Curry. What is yours? Who do you consider a role model in your life?

Did you hear Whoopi's comments about how we should be understanding of Vick's dog fighting habits because he was from the south and that was accepted in our culture. It ticked me off. I wrote in a comment on the website - it was ridiculous!

I wrote in comments for both...grr to stereotypes and objectifying women. I couldn't believe that Whoopi would go there like that, and for the record a friend of mine grew up in the same area of VA as Vick and she was SO outraged! ~Meigan
