Joy Behar Supports NeNe Leakes as Replacement on The View

by at . Comments

Joy Behar will soon be on her way out of The View.

Might NeNe Leakes be on her way in?

With changes afoot at the ABC talk show, Wet Paint caught up with Behar this weekend in NYC and the departing host excitedly supported the prospect of this Real Housewives of Atlanta member taking her spot in the fall.

"I love NeNe!" Behar said. "I think she’d be very good… She's fun!"

It's unclear if ABC has given any thought to Leakes. Brooke Shields, Jenny McCarthy and Ali Wentworth are reportedly the leading candidates to take over for Behar.

It also remains unknown whether a pair of new panelists will be coming on board, as sources say Elisabeth Hasselbeck is toast.

What do you think of NeNe Leakes on The View? Would she be a solid co-host?

Jenny McCarthy thought she'd be hosting the The View for 20 years. She was recently dismissed from the show after just one season.


I am unsure whether Ms. Leakes would be able to do the show, especially since she is presently very involved with multiple projects, including those related to her acting career. That being said, however, based upon her guest appearance on THE WENDY WILLIAMS SHOW, I think she has what it takes to keep viewers tuned in on THE VIEW; and so my vote is an enthusiastic yes for her replacing Ms. Behar.
