Was This Interview Uncomfortable, Inspiring, or Awkward?

A conservative, a lesbian, and a gay man were on a couch …   It sounds like a lead into a joke, but it was what happened on The View today.

Continuing his publicity tour after coming out as HIV positive, Danny Pintauro was briefly interviewed today by Candace Cameron Bure and Raven Symone.

Some news sites are highlighting the interview as "Pintauro Shamed" by the two The View's cohosts, Raven and Candace.  Watch this clip below and tell us what you think.




Was the interview uncomfortable, inspiring, or awkward? 

Did Cameron seem more stiff than usual? 

Did Raven seem to overcompensate for Cameron's discomfort, yet come up with some zingers of her own?

What about that "are you safe" question?

Does Danny deserve to take their places on The View?

  1. All this slut shamming is

    All this slut shamming is bull.  It's the View, and it's audience is ignorant to something 30 years and counting. The questions were fine, as were his responses.  I know several neg/pos couples who refuse to use protection because of data.  It wasn't a person, but a bonafied question.  All this knee jerk, reactionary response is just pathetic. And how ignorance has always spread.

  2. Remember, it’s a talk show…
    Remember, it’s a talk show… Limited time with the “guests” and the show has to stay palatable to all audiences. The information is out there. Assistance is out there. I’m proud of him (Danny) for wanting to assist with education and not hiding in the shadows as many have.

  3. I thought the ‘are you safe?’

    I thought the 'are you safe?' question to someone in a marriage was inappropriate.  And would this have been asked to any straight couple?

  4. i didnt feel like they did a

    i didnt feel like they did a bad job. just asking questions people want to know. the are you safe question might have been over the line but she always just kind of says what she thinks, and i think their response was good. but i think they knew she would ask that because candace had an already printed out statistic based on their answer.

    • No they were not “intelligent

      No they were not "intelligent" enough for the interview. Raven knew asking him about his sex life was personal. She even said while she was answering. They should have did their work on getting all the  information out their about HIV. For Raven just to say there are other ways u can get HIV was meant nothing. One of them should have said the risk factors. heartsmiley
