The View co-hosts Sunny Hostin and Ana Navarro were asked to leave the set after both tested positive for Covid-19.

Hostin and Navarro were escorted off camera by ABC Studio security after leaving the set.

The embarrassing incident occurred live on the air on Friday, Sept. 24, just seconds before welcoming Vice President Kamala Harris onstage for an interview.

Reportedly, the co-hosts were asked to leave by Secret Service agents.

The View‘s hosts are all fully vaccinated, but they can still contract and spread the virus to others.

“Ana and Sunny have to leave,” Joy Behar told the national TV audience. “And we’ll tell you why in a couple minutes.

“Shall I introduce the vice-president?” she asked a producer. “Okay, vice-president — no? Okay, shall we dance? Let’s do a tap dance. Since this is gonna be a major news story any minute now.”

After the break, Behar explained why Hostin and Navarro were booted off the set — because they tested positive for Covid.

“No matter how hard we try, these things happen. They probably have a breakthrough case, and they’ll be okay, I’m sure, because they’re both vaccinated up the wazoo, you know, a lot of vaccines.”

Drake Dresses Up As A Cowboy For 35th Birthday Bash With Larsa Pippen, Offset & More – Photos

Drake held an amazing Halloween-themed birthday party at Goya Studios on Saturday night and it had some of Hollywood’s finest celebs dressed in their best costumes.

Drake always knows how to throw a great party and that’s exactly what he did to celebrate his 35th birthday! The rapper, whose big day is on Oct. 24, held a star-studded Halloween-themed bash at Goya Studios on the night of Oct. 23 and attendees like Larsa Pippen, Chris Brown, Offset, and more showed up in some epic costumes. Drake, himself, dressed up like a cowboy for the eventful night with a tan jacket full of fringe over a denim top and a white cowboy hat.

The party was also reportedly a Chico Amante-themed one, and since that translates to “lover boy,” it seems to be a tribute to Drake’s latest album, Certified Lover Boy. Larsa’s costume was Scarface‘s Elvira Hancock and included a long sleeveless silky white dress and platinum blonde wig while Chris and Offset didn’t appear to be anyone or anything but their already impressive selves. Chris’ outfit included a silky blue and white jacket over a light-colored sweater and jeans, while Offset wore his own tan silky short-sleeved top with multiple necklaces and black pants.

Other guests that showed up included Luka Sabbat, French Montana, Future, YG, NBA player Kawhi Leonard, and businessman James Goldstein, who, like Drake, also dressed up as a cowboy. The party looked like it was THE place to be this weekend and every guest seemed to be relaxed while flashing smiles to the camera.

Drake and other partygoers also shared some pics and videos, including one of his pals singing “Happy Birthday” to him in the fun venue, which can be seen above, and he looked as happy as could be. Folks clapped, drinks were had, and fantastic music was played, proving it was a night to remember!

This isn’t the first time Drake’s held a truly memorable birthday party. The talented artist is known for putting on an incredible time year after year and last year’s bash was no exception! He held the ritzy event in Los Angeles, CA and social media pics showed him dressed to impress in a dark gray blazer over a brown top as he mingled with guests like producer G-RY and enjoyed cake with sparklers and a tasty menu.

“This is our first in-person event since relaunching and obviously, in the time of COVID, the event is going to look very different than it has in the past. We have Wayne Brady who’s hosting and he also has some very special performances planned for the event. So we’re excited about that. We have performances from Justine Skye, Erica Campbell, and Lucky Daye and we have some special awards that are given out.”

“Another element that I should add that we’ll be incorporating is that we launched this competition with Sprite and the winner will be announced and the person who wins the competition will get to be on the red carpet as an EBONY correspondent and talk to all the guests. So excited about that! And we’re bringing back the HBCU Campus Queens initiative, it has a different spin and it’s focused on STEM. We’re highlighting girls that are specifically in STEM programs and they are going to get to fly out and come to the event. They’ll have a moment on the red carpet on stage, and then these girls will actually be featured in EBONY’s first print edition that we’ll be launching next year.”

Britney Spears & Fiancé Sam Asghari Load Up On Fast Food Before Going For A Drive – Photos

Britney Spears & Fiancé Sam Asghari Load Up On Fast Food Before Going For A Drive – Photos

Sam Asghari appeared to be chowing down on a burger as he drove a white BMW in the Los Angeles area on Oct. 23 while Britney rode passenger.

Britney Spears, 39, and Sam Asghari, 27, were spotted out-and-about for a cruise and fast food run. Sam could be seen holding a burger (with a large bite out of it) as he drove a white BMW car in the Los Angeles area on Saturday, Oct. 23. Britney, who rode passenger, looked relaxed and casual as she threw her blonde hair up in a messy bun and sported a pair of sunglasses — see the photos via DailyMail here.

The sweet couple have been enjoying plenty of time together lately, including last weekend when they went for a an evening bike ride using lights. Britney, rocking a baby blue t-shirt and shorts, looked totally confident as she rode with Sam behind her, taking in the sights of her neighborhood.

Earlier this month, the pair also set off on a private jet as they headed to a tropical vacation in celebration of Britney’s conservatorship news: in early October, her father Jamie Spears was suspended from conservator role, which he held over her estate for 13 years. Jamie was replaced by certified public account John Zabel following the “Toxic” singer’s bombshell two court testimonies and numerous social media posts advocating for her freedom. On the jet, Brit and Sam enjoyed a stunning dessert platter as she took one step closer to justice.

Sam sweetly proposed to Britney after nearly five years on Sept. 12. The blonde was over the moon as she flashed her circle shaped engagement ring for an Instagram video alongside her handsome fiancé. In the video, Sam can be briefly heard asking, “look at that, you like it?” as Brit naturally gushed back, “yeah!” She also shared her excitement in a caption, penning, “can’t f***ing believe it!!!!!!” with a slew of engagement ring emojis.

It’s not actually France folks … it’s French territory 🇫🇷🏝🇵🇫 !!! Psss where should we get married 💍⛪️👰🏼‍♀️🤵🏽 ???

The duo have yet to set a date, but Brit most certainly has wedding bells on her mind — taking to TikTok with her “predicament” on Oct. 5. “I have no idea where I want to get married,” Britney confessed in the video while ridin in a golf cart. “We don’t know if we want to get married in Italy, or Greece, Australia, or New York City,” she pondered, as Sam suggested, “Why don’t you ask the fans?”
