Plainview, NY, August 03, 2010 --( On a recent airing of the mid-morning talk show, "The View," panel moderator Whoopi Goldberg brought up the website by stating, “A website lets guilty cheaters anonymously admit their infidelities. But let me ask you, if you ended an affair, would you still confess to your mate?”

That day's View panel included: Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Kate Gosselin, Sherri Shepherd and Elisabeth Hasselbeck. The ladies of "The View" examined the merits versus the drawbacks of confessing to cheating on your mate or spouse, based on the premise of the website

Elisabeth Hasselbeck immediately threw in a "Sex and the City 2" analogy, referring to Carrie kissing ex-boyfriend Aidan behind Mr. Big’s back. Co-host Joy Behar said matter-of-factly, “Don’t ask, don’t tell, and fugedabout it,” in her Italian inflection. Infamous mom of eight and spurned ex-wife Kate Gosselin rebutted that “honesty is the best policy... I don’t want to be with you if you don’t want to be with me.” Joy Behar then retorted, “Why would you put your marriage at risk like that by admitting something that’s going to go away, and it will only hurt their feelings.”

Sherri Shepherd’s take on confessing to cheating was, “If you don’t admit it, there is no accountability, and it’s easier to do it again.” Whoopi Goldberg rounded out the conversation by proclaiming, “I would much rather you told me, ‘this is where I’m at.’ If I’m with a guy who messes with a lot of women, I want to know that so I can make the decision.”

" is a commentary on current societal values and a reflection of the state of many of today’s relationship issues as they pertain to cheating. We are not surprised that the site is inspiring debate and conversation on television shows like 'The View,'" points out Cheat Confession founder Jared Kugel.
