The Dixie Chicks Piss Off "The View"
The Dixie Chicks have pissed off yet another group of insignificant people. This time they have the cackling ladies of The View mad as hell over something the country group said in Newsweek.
Their first topic of the day: a Dixie Chicks interview in Newsweek in which one of the members said the group tries to follow the kind of career path that Bruce Springsteen does and "would Bruce do The View?"
Joy Behar ripped up the magazine issue and said that it's one thing to diss the Bush administration (as the Chicks got in trouble with their fan base for doing), but it's "treason" to diss The View .
The women then rolled some tape from 1998, when The Dixie Chicks DID appear on the show, back when they were just starting out. They spent the rest of their opening segment dissing the Chicks and naming the many other esteemed guests they have had (at one point, in discussing Oprah Winfrey's new book deal, Star Jones said, "She may not be a Dixie Chick, but...").
When they went to commercial, Meredith Vieira quipped, "The Dixie Chicks are on the line."
I do love me some Dixie Chicks, but they shouldn't go around burning bridges. They do have an album to promote. Damn and besides Joy could be a hot ally for them. And Natalie is just the big mouth to tell Star Jones what a fag her husband is.
