BARBARA WALTERS WARNS ROBERT BLAKE: DON’T GO ALL BLUE ON “THE VIEW”!
AND DAT’S DA NAME OF DAT TUNE! When BARBARA WALTERS finally agreed to put TV badboy ROBERT BLAKE on “The View” – after nixing him for years – she insisted on strict conditions to prevent the serial potty-mouth from fouling her air like he did on PIERS MORGAN’s CNN show, where he got bleeped an astounding 40 times!
Said an insider: “Barbara took pity on Blake, who desperately wants contact with his 12-year-old daughter, Rosie – whose mother was BONNY LEE BAKLEY, his murdered wife. Blake’s eldest daughter, Delinah, has custody of Rosie and keeps her away from Blake.
"Barbara feels the aging actor, who turns 80 in September, deserves a fair platform to express his need to see his daughter. But she’s made it clear she won’t tolerate any of his filthy-mouthed curses!”
So when “The View” goes live with Blake on June 10, network execs are insisting on a bleeping 10-second delay
