Making Whoopi, Drinking Sherri: New Co-Hosts on The View Named

by at . Comments

Sorry, Rumer Willis, looks like you haven't been chosen as one of the new hosts on The View.

Two months after Rosie O'Donnell walked away from the show, speculation is rife that Whoopi Goldberg and Sherri Shepherd are about to be sitting in the hot seats permanently.

The Los Angeles Times
and People magazine report that a formal announcement is expected next week regarding these two comedians joining the ABC daytime gabfest.

The real question on everyone's mind is how they'll get along with Elisabeth Hasselbeck. Her and O'Donnell did not exactly see eye to eye... or toe to toe... or belly to belly...

Welcome, Sherri Shepherd and Whoopi Goldberg to The View. Let's see how well they dish on various celebrity gossip topics.

Last year, Star Jones looked as ugly and acted as obnoxiously as ever; she also left the program amid backstage rancor and a public clash with Barbara Walters. Since then, she's said The View needs more diversity on its panel.

In a much smoother departure, former panelist Meredith Vieira also left the show last year, to join NBC's morning show Today.

Recently, Goldberg Shepherd and Kathy Griffin have been mentioned as the main possibilities to join Joy Behar, Hasselbeck and Walters at the table. We're not sure why Dina Lohan wasn't considered for the job.

Oh, right. It's because she sucks.

Whoppi? NO WAY! I say bring Rosie back...I don't agree with her (and don't like her that much), but you can't deny that she brought an element of excitement and some controversy to the show. What's wrong with a little different opinion? Let's get away from this excessive conformity...we're all becoming clones of one another. Bring Rosie back! Vote for your favorite cast member.
