Brandy to take Star Jones' spot?

BrandyAccording to People, Brandy will be a guest-host on The View next Wednesday and Friday. She's currently on America's Got Talent, playing judge between David Hasselhoff and that one English guy that was clearly put there for "Simon" purposes, but this stint on The View might lead to a permanent spot. Apparently, ABC wants to "audition" different people before picking a replacement for Star Jones (similar to what CBS did before finally deciding on Craig Ferguson for the Late Late Show).

Do you think Brandy would be a good person to fill Star Jones' suspiciously fast-shrinking shoes?

I don't think Brandy is a fit.If Ms. Walters treated Star like an Outcast.Brandy will not stand a chance. And as far as Gayle coming aboard, I hope she will decline. Gayle is to Smart and Classy to be on this type of show. To much Drama. ABC should Bow out gracefully.Just Cancel the Show Please.

I'm not so sure that Brandy is the one for the job. I don't have a suggestion to counter with, but that's fine. I'm also not so sure that Rosie O'Donnell is going to do very well with Elizabeth and Joy. It should really be interesting how the chemistry runs.

Just because she is black and female doesn't mean she can fill Star Jones spot.

Old women with no jobs watch the show. The show has a token "young" girl sometimes. It is all the audience can handle. I would say picking someone like Patricia Heaton or that mom on Home Improvement. Something like that. The audience will need a moderately conservative voice on the panel to counter the hate-monger Rosie O'Donnell.

I think that Brandy would be a good choice; however my first choice would be Renee Elise-Goldsbery (from One Life to Live). She was a guest host some months ago and did a wonderful job. She has real star quality (no pun intended). Also, Sheryl Lee Ralph comes to mind. I think right now Barbara Walters and The View better do something quick. The show is so boring without Star and Meredith!

They need someone who can run Hot Topics, that's why Gayle King sounded like a good choice to me. Barbara is horrible at running Hot Topics and she doesn't want to be there 5 days a week anyway. No way Rosie, Joy and heaven forbid Elisabeth do it. Plus that would be two young ones, they need someone in the 35-40 range I think.
