During a visit to The View today, actress Annie Potts star slammed Newt Gingrich, who earlier called her new show, GCB, an example of the entertainment industry’s “anti-Christian bigotry.” Potts began tamely, musing, “I don’t know what all the fuss is about.” But it took very little prodding from co-hosts Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg to get her going.

“I did feel that it was especially rich coming from him,” said Potts, “that he called our little TV show un-Christian when he was carrying on an affair while he was impeaching the president for doing the same. It’s like, you know, look in the mirror honey, I think our show might be for you!”

Potts also talked about former Designing Women costar Dixie Carter (much more kindly).

What do you think, PopWatchers? Team Potts or Team Newt?
