This could be grosser than any image of Britney Spears being plowed wheelbarrow style.

Aging host of The View Barbara Walters commented this week on the topics her and her castmates can discuss now that Rosie O’Donnell is off the program.

She said that “it’s very hard for anyone to follow Rosie,” but at least the panel can now talk about issues such as “heterosexual sex.”

Which, apparently, they couldn’t do before simply because Rosie would be more attracted to Paris Hilton’s pussy than David Beckham’s penis.

“The Hot Topics have been fun,” Walters told KISS-FM’s Ryan Seacrest on Wednesday, referring to the segment in which the all-female panel dishes about various subjects.

“There are some things that we were able to discuss that we weren’t able to discuss with Rosie, like heterosexual sex. Because, you know, Rosie’s lifestyle is different, being an open lesbian.”

So if O’Donnell were straight, Elisabeth Hasselbeck and company would be throwing out blow job references left and right?

During Wednesday’s radio interview, Walters praised O’Donnell as “a great talent,” saying she “brought a lot of excitement and, of course, controversy to the show.” She also said ratings have remained steady since her departure.

Walters, an executive producer of the program, said, “We are taking our time a little bit” in picking new co-hosts. There are currently two empty seats at the table, as a permanent replacement for co-host Star Jones Reynolds was never selected after she left last year.

Comedian Whoopi Goldberg is a front-runner for one of them.

Of course, if heterosexual, oral sex is really on the agenda, we have another suggestion: Antonella Barba needs a job these days.
