The legendary actor and comedian shows how to set a great table, shares ideas for unforgettable celebrations, and says, ´´It´s about fun, not perfection!´´ In her own words... ´´It´s Whoopi here and I´ve written this book that, frankly, is the last book anyone would expect. You would never think of me as someone with the courage to say, ´You have everything you need to be fantastic in your own house, apartment, or trailer to set a great table.´ Let´s face it, you look at a lot of books on Entertaining and think ´I could never do this in my house, I don´t have this stuff and it´s not going to look like what I´m seeing.´ That´s not what´s going to happen here! I want to show you there is great heart in setting the table. For two or four or the kids or Halloween or tea just for you. For dinners with friends or the holidays. I´m going to tell you stories about what I do when people come over and give you ideas about what you´re seeing because Honey, everything in this book is what you can do in your house. You got a bodega or a 7-Eleven near you? They sell flowers. Take those bad boys and put them on your table. You got some crazy old plate from your grandmother (or a fancy silver one)? You got little kids´ toys that have been annoying you forever, put them on the table too. Who´s going to tell you it´s wrong? Not me! I´m going to tell you it´s right and I´m going to take you on a journey. And don´t forget the bathroom; decorate it too, people are going to see it. It´s all at your house. Come with me. I´ll show you! P.S. I know the glass on the cover is broken. Accidents happen!´´
This program is read by the author.Like Fire & Fury, the gossipy real-life soap opera behind a serious show. When Barbara Walters launched The View, network executives told her that hosting it would tarnish her reputation. Instead, within 10 years, she’d revolutionized morning TV and made household names of her cohosts: Joy Behar, Star Jones, Meredith Vieira, and Elisabeth Hasselbeck. But the daily chat fest didn’t just comment on the news. It became the news. And the headlines barely scratched the surface. Based on unprecedented access, including stunning interviews with nearly every host, award-winning journalist Ramin Setoodeh takes you backstage where the stars really spoke their minds. Here´s the full story of how Star, then Rosie, then Whoopi tried to take over the show, while Barbara struggled to maintain control of it all, a modern-day Lear with her media-savvy daughters. You´ll hear about how so many cohosts had a tough time fitting in, suffered humiliations at the table, then pushed themselves away, feeling betrayed - one nearly quitting during a commercial. Meanwhile, the director was being driven insane, especially by Rosie. Setoodeh uncovers the truth about Star’s weight loss and wedding madness. Rosie’s feud with Trump. Whoopi’s toxic relationship with Rosie. Barbara’s difficulty stepping away. Plus, all the unseen hugs, snubs, tears - and one dead rodent. Ladies Who Punch shows why The View can be mimicked and mocked, but it can never be matched. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ramin Setoodeh.
