A former Republican Party official and strategist and former communications chief under President George W. Bush, he is one of the new co-hosts of the popular morning television show The View. Welcome Nicolle Wallace!
Nicole Wallace, who was also a senior advisor during the ill-fated McCain-Palin presidential campaign, joined the ABC show this week, alongside Rosie O’Donnel, Rosie Perez and Whoopie Goldberg.
Wallace’s Greek character came up several times during his appearance yesterday, during an interview with Kirsten Dunst on her new film “Two Faces of January” which was filmed on location in Greece. The two exchanged jokes about Greece when Wallace mentioned his Greek heritage to Dunst. Whoopie also chimed in, telling viewers that she also loves Greece and hopes to retire there.
Wallace is no stranger to the national stage. During the tragedy of Hurricane Katrina, much of the blame for the Bush administration’s response to the disaster was placed on poor communication from its press office, for which Wallace was then responsible. This same topic came up yesterday during a conversation between the ladies of the show. Rosie O’Donnnell asked Wallace about his involvement in what many called President Bush’s quiet response to the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Wallace dispelled the notion that it was her fault by pointing out that at the time she was celebrating her lavish wedding in Mykonos.
