Well, this week proves to be another entertaining week on The View.  Of course, it's the first day after the Oscar's and they have a couple exciting things for Monday's show.

On their "Road to the Oscars" follow-up show, Sherri Shepherd will Skype live from her Hollywood Hotel room about her first time as an Oscar Red Carpet Host.  She'll talk about the Ceremony, the Winners, and of course  the Parties.  I'm sure her enthusiasm will be hard to control after such a huge event and opportunity. Another great happening for Monday is their special co-host, Vanessa Williams (ABC's Ugly Betty). I think she has so much class and grace, it will be interesting to see how she fits in with the hosts.

Tuesday is starting out yummy, with one of the scheduled guests being Andy Garcia. He will be visiting with his daughter Dominik Garcia-Lorido of City Island. Two other scheduled guest for this show is Elisa Stein and Susan Kim (authors Flow: The Cultural Story of Menstruation). Here is a quote describing the book, “A witty look at the history of 'the nuisance'…for women of all ages.  Who hasn’t wondered why we get a period, what women did before the invention of the tampon—let alone the pad.  Flow explains all.” –Body And Soul Magazine

Forrest Whitaker will be on the show to talk about the new movie he has that is coming out entitled, "Our Family Wedding."  The previews appear to be pretty funny.  It is about an African American young lady who is marrying a Latino young man.  Of course this is an old story in this day and age, but I'm sure Forrest will be able to put a unique spin on it.  Jessie Ventura will also be on the couch with the ladies discussing his book American Conspiracies: Lies, Lies and More Dirty Lies that the Government Tells Us. This sounds like a book that is sure to get the ladies going.

And, for the fith time, Sir Elton John will be making an appearance on The View.  This time will be a little different however; this will be his first time addressing Hot Topics at the table with the ladies.  I have no doubt that he will be able to hold his own. Eric McCromack (cutie from Will & Grace) will be on to discuss his role in the new Lifetime movie "Who is Clark Rockefeller?"  Sort of hard not to imagine him as Will, but it will be interesting to watch him in this movie which airs Saturday, March 13th at 9 pm.

This weeks Fashion Friday will have one of my favorite designers join the ladies.  Carolina Herrera will be on discussing fashion with the ladies, who each have their own unique style.

So, it looks like this week will have my DVR smoking once again. This is what keeps me coming back each week, through all of the things going on in our lives, this is a great show that takes you away from it all.  Check it out on ABC daytime.  You can also catch up on past episodes on ABC. I'll be sure to take a little time to enjoy The View.
