don't fuck with bawbwa wawas!

More details surrounding the ‘surprise’ today on The View have started to bubble to the top, and it appears that the gloves are off. These bitches are ready to throw down! It seems that the original plan was for Bawbwa Wawas and Piggy to both make the announcement on Thursday’s show. Well after the first commercial break yesterday, Piggy decided to interrupt the ladies and make her announcement – completely catching the ladies, and most importantly Bawbwa Wawas, off guard. Watch the clip that I posted yesterday to see how this all played out.

After all of the nice words and the standing ovation that greeted Piggy’s announcement on the show, an interview that she did with People magazine surfaced, in which she painted a bit of a different picture.

"What you don't know is that my contract was not renewed for the tenth season," she tells PEOPLE exclusively. "I feel like I was fired." She adds that she got the news just days before reports surfaced that Rosie O'Donnell – one of her most vocal critics – would be joining the View in the fall.

Someone should have told Piggy that it’s never a good idea to fuck with Bawbwa Wawas. I mean, seriously – right!?! In an interview with the Associated Press, Bawbwa said that she felt betrayed by Piggy’s surprise announcement. The following is an excerpt from an article in The New York Times -

''I love Star and I was trying to do everything I possibly could -- up until this morning when I was betrayed -- to protect her,'' Walters told The Associated Press. Walters also said she wasn't aware until she got off the air of Reynolds' People magazine interview. Reynolds, one of the original cast members when the show started nine years ago, said: ''I feel like I was fired.''

That seems to be the case. Walters said ABC network chiefs had decided last fall not to renew Reynolds' contract because its research showed that Reynolds' dramatic weight loss and 2004 wedding to banker Al Reynolds had turned viewers off. Reynolds had been criticized for a Web site that promoted companies that donated items for the wedding party's gift bags.

''We tried to talk them out of it,'' Walters said, ''and we tried to give Star time to redeem herself in the eyes of the audience, and the research just kept getting worse.'' Reynolds' spokesman, Brad Zeifman, said she would not comment beyond a prepared statement that did not address these issues.

Walters said Reynolds had known for several months that she would not be coming back, before Vieira's announcement in April that she was leaving. ''I would have loved for Star to have left and not said 'I was fired' and not make it look like the program was somehow being cruel to her,'' she said.

Now buzz is circulating that following Piggy's stunt, The View has asked that she not return this morning. According to People Magazine -

"ABC could not be reached by press time, but a source close to the show confirmed that Star had been asked not to return. Jones Reynolds, who helped launch the chatfest and spent nine years at the View table alongside Barbara Walters, Joy Behar and the newly departed Meredith Vieira, who left to replace Katie Couric on NBC's Today, says the split was anything but amicable."
Dude, I don't care where you are or what you're doing today at 11:00 ET - you need to find a television somewhere, and tune in for this shit. My fingers are crossed for some lady slapping and full blown fisticuffs! I'm still hoping that a random punch is thrown - and That Stupid Cunt Elisabeth Hasselbeck goes down!
