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.

Lori Holden, mom of a young adult daughter and a young adult son, writes from Denver. She was honored as an Angel in Adoption® by the Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institute.

  1. Is it so embarrassing if I tell you that I’m going to set the timer to tape tomorrow’s episode?

  2. I am not sure about the upcoming topics. I might be interested in Tuesday’s interview of Robert Pattinson. I just finished reading the book series and really enjoyed it. I haven’t seen New Moon yet…so I am already behind.

    The rest of it doesn’t up my interest meter enough to get me to watch TV…but again, I am a hard one to reach via TV since I rarely watch TV.

    I still am in awe of your ambassadorship. 🙂

  3. I wonder how you feel about that DNA “Who are you?” show as an adoptive mom. It weirds me out a little, to be honest. You’ve been an adoptive mom longer than I have. I’d love some perspective.

    I mean, I know DNA is important — that’s why my adoption has openness in it. But does DNA really change your complete perspective of who you are?

  4. I taped and finally got around to watching the episodes with OctoMom and with Bill and Guiliana this past weekend. I am truly at a loss for words on both of those interviews.

    And I was reminded of why I don’t really care to watch the show in the first place . . . I LOVE that the women are so vocal and are so passionate about what they do, but it is nearly IMPOSSIBLE to hear what any of them have to say because they are continually talking/bickering over each other!

    (My reviews are so helpful, no?!)

  5. Abigail Breslin is too cute. And I’d be interested in your view on the DNA show too. It always catches me when SJP says that it changes how she sees herself, in the commercial. However, I missed the first epi.
