Sherri Shepherd Pushes for Adrienne Bailon as View Co-Host

Joy Behar is on her way out.

And Sherri Shepherd has an idea of who she wants to be on the way in.

"Joy's been there for a while and she's ready to go, so I'm supportive and I'll miss her," Shepherd told Us Weekly this week about The View shake-up, adding:

"But what do I want? A young Latina voice is very underrepresented, so I would love to see a young Latina sitting at the table."

And the comedian just happens to have someone in mind.

"Adrienne Bailon would be so great," she said of the 29-year-old singer/actress. "She's awesome and I'm a Cheetah Girls fan.

"I would love her. Everyone tells me there's too few options out there, like before when everyone said we can't find a black person to fill the seat. Yes we can! We just have to look."

Behar has showed a bit of support for NeNe Leakes as her replacement, while Brooke Shields is also a strong possibility.
