Filed under: TV NewsOops!TwitterPageantryNewsControversy

Everyone makes mistakes once in a while, but sometimes those boo-boos are bigger than others, and sometimes they're advertised nationally.

That's exactly what happened when Nightline sat down with Bollywood actress and current star of the new show Quantico, Priyanka Chopra.

When playing the intro to her interview, the show aired clips of Priyanka's work. Unfortunately for them, they couldn't quite tell the difference between Chopra and former Bollywood actress and Miss World winner Yukta Mookhey and showed a clip of Mookhey when she won the pageant in 1999.

The Quantico star ALSO won the pageant in 2000, but that's still no excuse.

It was actually one eagle-eyed viewer that caught the moment who tweeted:

More Advertisers Pull Spots From The View Even AFTER The Show Featured Dozens Of Nurses!

Well, that plan backfired!

Well, it looks like that strategy was counter-productive.

The View got hit where it hurts — in the piggy bank — when a few sponsors pulled their ads after host Joy Behar began cracking jokes about Miss Colorado's decision to wear scrubs and deliver a monologue about being a nurse during this year's Miss America pageant.

To get back on everyone's good side, the show decided to invite a bunch of nurses on the panel program to prove to audiences — and advertisers — everywhere just how much they love RNs!

Too bad it didn't work.

Three more companies have yanked their commercials during the show's slot, including Party City, Snuggle, and McCormick spices.

They join Johnson & Johnson and Eggland's Best, who paused their promotions on Thursday.

The spice corporation took to Facebook to explain its decision to back out of advertising during The View, writing:

​The View Invites Dozens Of Nurses On The Show To Praise Their Profession — After Big Sponsors Pull Out!

Filed under: TV NewsJoy BeharPageantryControversy

Time for a little damage control!

Earlier this week, The View came under fire for comments that Michelle Collins and Joy Behar made about nurses when commenting on Miss Colorado Kelly Johnson's Miss America monologue about her profession as a nurse.

Since then, the co-hosts have apologized for their ignorance and misspoken words and Miz Johnson even went on Ellen to talk a bit about the attention that she brought to nurses through the pageant — though she kept it EXTREMELY classy and didn't bring up The View controversy.

Well after news broke that The View lost a couple sponsors in Johnson & Johnson and Eggland's, it looks like they're trying to do some spin doctoring!

The View Loses MAJOR Advertisers Following Miss Colorado Nurse Comments!

no title

You know what they say about karma…

The View found itself in a bit of a controversy this week after two of its hosts decided to poke fun at Miss Colorado for going on stage at the Miss America competition in her nurse's scrubs.

Well, it seems as though some major companies were just as mad as viewers over Joy Behar and Michelle Collins' comments, because two of the ABC talk show's biggest advertisers just pulled their commercials!

Both Johnson & Johnson and Eggland's Best announced on Thursday that they will no longer be supporting the panel!

It's not quite clear why the egg producer wanted to be separated from The View's anti-nurse image, but we totally see why J&J wouldn't want to be associated with the show.

Michelle already apologized for the way her statement came across, but we guess that just wasn't enough.

What do U think about the latest update in the #NursesUnite scandal??

Miss Colorado Defends Her Nurse Monologue On Ellen After Being Mocked By The View — Watch HERE!

Filed under: TV NewsEllen DeGeneresTwitterFacebookPageantryControversy

miss colorado kelly johnson ellen nurse monologue

Color us impressed!

Miss Colorado Kelly Johnson was already earning brownie points with Ellen DeGeneres during the Miss America Pageant when she said that she thought Ellen should be the face on the $10 bill!

Perhaps that's why the talk show host invited Miz Johnson to appear on her Thursday show!

Aside from telling Ellen how excited she to be second runner up and started crying when she learned she might be on Ellen, Kelly showed a TON of class when she talked about the nurse monologue she gave — that The View co-hosts recently criticized.

The most admirable thing about Kelly during the interview was that she didn't bring up the recent controversy revolving around her speech.

Instead she just talked about how it was important it was to bring attention to the profession by saying:

Well that took no time at all!

It's been just about a week since The View returned to TV with a mostly new panel of co-hosts including Michelle Collins, Joy Behar, Raven Symoné, Whoopi Goldberg, and Paula Faris.

In that week they've already managed to offend people with some of their commentary about one of the contestants in the Miss America pageant being a nurse — to which they've already apologized (below)!

During the talent the portion of the contest, Miss Colorado, Kelley Johnson, performed a monologue which talked quite a bit about her profession as a nurse.

Yesterday Collins apparently felt the need to express her opinion about the monologue as well as question why she was wearing a stethoscope during the segment. She shared:

Filed under: FacebookPageantryControversy

A former Miss New York contestant wants her apology, too!

History was made Sunday night!

Over thirty years after losing her crown due to the scandal surrounding her nude photos, Vanessa Williams was finally apologized to during the Miss America pageant.

And now, Jennifer DeLora wants hers, too!

The actress was given the title of Miss Ulster County, New York in 1986, but later was told she was unable to compete as a Miss New York contestant.

According to the organization, they came across a film where Jennifer, who was topless for a few short seconds, fell under the category of being "indecent and in bad taste." Additionally, they stated she violated pageant rules.

Jennifer was de-crowned as Miss Ulster County and lost her scholarship money, so it's not exactly a surprise that recent events would be bringing up old feelings.

In a Facebook post, she addressed:
