Week 3 of my ambassadorship

…and STILL I haven’t attended any state dinners!

I’m in the 3rd of my 4-week gig as Brand Ambassador for ABC’s The View. My duties are to give you a sneak peek at this week’s topics, and to get feedback about the show to the producers.

Thanks to all who shared their thoughts on the subject of infertility, which was covered last week. The episode, which featured Bill and Giuliana Rancic, as well as “normal” people, can be seen here.

Coming up this week

  • Tuesday: Robert Pattinson (Twilight saga) talks about his new and non-fanged film. Mitt Romney also appears — no word on if he bites.
  • Wednesday: The best of “View Tube.” Also, Lisa Kudrow of Who Do You Think You Are?, a new series that traces the ancestry of a celebrity, documentary-style.
  • Thursday: Valerie Bertinelli co-hosts; former Oscar-nominee Abigail Breslin guests.
  • Friday: The “Road to the Oscars” welcome Don Cheadle and Wesley Snipes. “Fashion Friday” examines the most memorable Oscar hits and misses. There will be opinions on who and what the winners will be.

Still collecting topic and guest suggestions. Do you have a request or two? Leave a comment.

And don’t forget to enter the Limerick Chick contest! Tonight’s the deadline, and voting begins tomorrow.

Disclosure: I am a participant in a MomCentral campaign for ABC Daytime and will receive a tote bag or other The View branded items to facilitate my review.

The View addresses infertility this week

Note: there’s a question for you toward the end of this post.

Thanks for all your comments on last week’s announcement of my ambassadorship for The View. I don’t know if the Powers-That-Be are reading, or how representative they might think that readers of this little ol’ blog might be of their viewing universe, but they really should pay attention. We’re a smart bunch.

This week on The View:

  • Today’s show features the cast of Jersey Shore (uh, sorry, I fail to see the appeal)
  • Wednesday’s show brings Nadya Suleman. Do you have anything you’d like to know about a single mom of 14? Why and how come to mind.
  • On Thursday, Bill and Giuliana Rancic discuss their infertility struggles (I’m so in the dark without cable — who are these people??) .
  • On Friday, Regis and Joy Philbin sing from their new CD, Just You, Just Me.

My question for you this week – just in case the producers are making the rounds of the ambassadors’ blogs — is:

If you were wishing for topics/guests more, uh, substantive than, say, a talk show about a reality show based on caricature-people, what topics/guests would cause you to put The View on Your Schedule? Gimme three, if you please.
