The View Audience Gives Sunny Hostin Its 2 Cents On Her Raquel Welch Rema

'The View' has rapidly become one of the most influential political talk shows in recent memory, but it wasn't always this way.

Since Barbara Walters launched the show in 1997, it has featured a revolving door of returning or recurring co-hosts - some of whom have caused controversy.

Hostin’s Reaction

On The View's tribute to Raquel Welch, Sunny Hostin made an unfounded claim that Kim Kardashian was similar to the late actress. Not only her co-hosts but also viewers of ABC talk show The View were indignant at this remark - they booed and hollered as Hostin held her hand up to her chest for assurance.

Welch was an actress renowned for her roles in many 1960s and 1970s movies, such as science fiction thriller Fantastic Voyage and prehistoric adventure film One Million Years B.C. In one iconic poster image featuring her skimpy deer skin bikini, Welch gained notoriety as a sex symbol.

On Wednesday, Welch passed away and her death was widely covered by multiple media outlets. She was a well-known television star during the 1960s, appearing in shows such as Bewitched and McHale's Navy as well as Elvis Presley's Roustabout.

She also featured in other films such as the beloved comedy Bedazzled and 1970s drama Myra Breckinridge. Here, her sexual appeal was put to good use in some of her most memorable roles.

The actress was renowned for her seductive looks, particularly in the science fiction thriller Fantastic Voyage and as Lust in Bedazzled. Additionally, she played a transgender woman in Myra Breckinridge but gained even greater notoriety as an icon of pleasure.

She was a beloved actress who won her Golden Globe for her role in The Three Musketeers. On Wednesday morning, at 82 years old, her family confirmed to TMZ her passing.

Behar’s Response

On Wednesday's ABC Hot Topic segment, co-host Sunny Hostin made an unusual suggestion. She believed Kim Kardashian to be the modern day Raquel Welch, who passed away Wednesday at 82 years old.

Welch achieved international stardom in 1966 when her minor role in "One Million Years B.C." became bestselling memorabilia. Though she only had three lines, the skimpy two-piece deer skin bikini she wore during the movie quickly earned her a reputation as a desirable item.

Hostin and Behar both praised Welch for her influence on pop culture, but Hostin's comparison of Kim to Welch wasn't exactly flattering. When she suggested Kardashian was as effective a sexual symbol as Welch was, the audience booed her. Behar and Whoopi Goldberg then proceeded to jab at her while host Ana Navarro even took the opportunity to vent about her own frustrations with news coverage of Welch's passing.

Kim Kardashian has long been seen as a sex symbol, but Behar and Goldberg managed to turn the topic into an amusing joke that ended with everyone involved laughing.

Goldberg’s Response

On 'The View' Thursday night, Sunny Hostin was booed by the audience when she made an insensitive comment about Kim Kardashian, comparing her to actress Raquel Welch. Her fellow co-hosts Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg immediately corrected her in front of a shocked studio audience.

On Wednesday, June 22, 1982, the late actress Patricia Neal passed away after a brief illness. She was praised for her performances in films like The Three Musketeers and had an immense impact on modern female action stars; Quentin Tarantino even credited her as one of his inspirations when creating his Kill Bill series.

Welch made her debut in Elvis Presley's 1964 film Roustabout and quickly gained notoriety with roles in Fantastic Voyage and One Million Years B.C. The former featured her wearing a skimpy two-piece deerskin bikini which became an international sex symbol and popular poster.

Marilyn Monroe, Jayne Mansfield, Sophia Loren and Jane Fonda all made appearances in bikini roles throughout their lives; Welch chose not to break away from this trend even after becoming famous in the last decade or so. Many women today still struggle with conveying a message whose sexual ideals differ from their own.

No, she wasn't a great actress, but her popularity was sustained by an appealing set of physical characteristics. Her naturally slender frame and youthful face kept her youthful in both body and spirit. Additionally, her cleavage and tawny hair gave off an air of sensual femininity that allowed her to make waves on the big screen even while remaining relatively unknown within most Hollywood circles.

She managed to maintain her status as a sex symbol well into her 80s, defying the trend that many women seem to lose their appeal with age. Ms. Welch proved that age doesn't have to mean you stop being attractive - serving as proof to her fans that aging doesn't necessarily have to be seen as a bad thing.

As a result, the host was forced to change the subject quickly and was clearly shocked by her audience's reaction. She raised her hand in shock before Behar rebuked her by praising Welch's impact on the industry while noting that there should not be comparisons made between them.

Navarro’s Response

'The View' Audience Gives Sunny Hostin Their Two Cents on Her Raquel Welch Rema

On Thursday, talk show host Sunny Hostin got into a heated argument when she suggested Kim Kardashian was the modern-day equivalent to late actress and pop culture sex symbol Raquel Welch. Not only her fellow hosts had issues with this assertion - the audience of ABC Daytime Show reacted angrily by yelling and booing in opposition.

On the show's latest episode, co-hosts were mourning the passing of 82-year-old Welch. Whoopi Goldberg opened with a brief tribute to her favorite movie featuring Welch: One Million Years B.C. The star donned an iconic two-piece deerskin bikini for this iconic poster.

Hostin and her co-hosts did their best to poke fun at Hostin for her misstep, but the highlight of the episode came when newcomer Ana Navarro took the stage. While riffing on a question about Welch, Navarro noticed her co-hosts discussing a similar topic. Despite lacking knowledge on the matter, Navarro managed to come up with an inventive answer for which sex symbol was chosen as winner of Ladies Night. It was an excellent start to The View's new season; perhaps Navarro could find herself in luck for awhile?
