    Though this initially happened a long time ago, with the new book about the View being released, it is being discussed again. I personally think that, while Aiken would never have done what he did to Ripa to Philbin, I do believe that Ripa meant it as a homophobic remark. If a straight man had done the same thing to her, her reaction would also have been different.......

    JMHO.......

    This just reinforces why I hate shows like The View. Men talk to women crazier than they do other men? Ha, that's precious! The women on The View are some of the most petty, vicious vipers you'll ever come across in your life. Especially the token conservatives like Elizabeth Hasselbeck and Meghan McCain. It's so pathetic that they try to make it about gender.

    That said, I agree with Ripa that Aiken putting his hand over her mouth was disrespectful. I also don't think her response was inherently homophobic. People hear what they want to hear.

    Well, Sherri Shepard has also talked in tongue on the show and said that she cannot wait to go to heaven so she will be reunited with all of the babies that she has had aborted I. the past, so........she is not one to take too seriously.

    As I said, Aiken would not have done that to Philbin, but I believe Ripa meant it homophobic....

    Yeah, she's always seemed a little nutty to me.

    I don't think Aiken would have tried to cover Philbin's mouth either. And Ripa could have meant her comment as a gay slur, but I still don't think what she said is inherently homophobic.

    That's actually a very mature response from Rosie. Not only does she understand why Ripa holds a grudge, she's accepting of it.

    I also agree with Rips about her reasoning as to why Aiken covered her mouth, too. However, IMHO she meant it as a slur.
