Michaele Salahi Found 'View' Appearance Degrading

Thursday, 05 Aug 2010 10:44 AM

 

A lawyer for accused White House gatecrasher Michaele Salahi says producers of "The View" turned on the applause light for the audience when the show's Sherri Shepherd told Salahi that "you should be in jail."

Lawyer Lisa Bloom says her client's appearance Wednesday on ABC's "The View" was "degrading and demeaning."

It was further fallout from the backstage shouting match between Salahi and "View" co-host Whoopi Goldberg that erupted after the show. Goldberg came on the set during Salahi's appearance to urge her to talk more about the night she and her husband crashed President Barack Obama's state dinner last fall.

"The View" spokesman Karl Nilsson said the backstage altercation began after Salahi supposedly accused Goldberg of hitting her on the show. He called the charge completely unfounded; Bloom says her client never said Goldberg hit her, but that Salahi had been startled by her.
