I never watch The View (don't even know what channel it's on). But Mary Katharine Ham does and particularly didn't like what she saw recently. In short, Rosie O'Donnell accused Kelly Ripa of "homophobia" because when Clay Aiken clapped his hand over Ripa's mouth, she said, "I don't know where that hand's been, honey." If that's "homophobia," then I'm guilty of humanphobia, I suppose, because as anyone who knows me knows, I don't like being touched, period (not to the extent of Howie Mandel or Howard Hughes, of course). I would have said the same as Ripa: I don't know where that hand's been -- whether you didn't wash it after visiting the restroom, whether you wiped your nose with it, whether you touched some nasty food product I don't like. Just keep it off my face.
Ripa called Rosie and let her know she was (rightly) offended by the accusation.
Kelly promptly called into the show and let Rosie have it, saying her comments were "irresponsible" and "she should know better. Not everything is homophobic." Kelly said she was concerned about germs because it's cold-and-flu season, and miffed that her guest-host had made a pretty rude, condescending gesture toward her.
Watch the video Ham posted and judge for yourself.
