The View officially nabs Whoopi Goldberg
The dreadlocked legend will fill the "moderator" spot, guiding the day-to-day topics the girls will gab about. I wonder if Joy Behar is going to get a little jealous having another professional comic on the stage with her.
Love her or hate her, Rosie was always interesting -- and also good for ratings. I think that The View is trying to play it safe by bringing on Whoopi, but those of you may remember she got fired from her last job at Slim-Fast for a controversial speech about Bush. Maybe we if cross our fingers and wish real hard, we will get to see some Hasselbeck.
No offense to Shepard, but I don't think she is the right person to fill in Star's Payless shoes. As a former lawyer, Star brought a little bit of intellectual spark to the show, when she wasn't talking about her husband or getting hit in the face with a football (video). My hope is that they will try and bring on financial adviser Suze Orman or the newly unemployed Paula Zahn from CNN.
