The press has been all abuzz over the last several days at the changes going on over at The View! First, Jenny McCarthy and Sherri Shepherd announced their exits, then ABC announced that Rosie O’Donnell is returning to The View.
Next, another former The View co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck slammed Rosie by saying: “I know Rosie very well. We worked together quite closely. Talk about not securing the border. Here in comes to The View the very woman who spit in the face of our military, spit in the face of her own network, and really in the face of a person who stood by her and had civilized debates for the time that she was there.”
Then former co-host Joy Behar, fired back at the comments of Hasselbeck! And today on The View, Whoopi Goldberg made this statement: “I will do my best to respect the audience, to make sure that we bring you The View that Barbara Walters wanted you to have, which is women talking about issues. We are not little kids. We are grown-ass women.”
So who else will join the panel comprised right now of only Goldberg and O’Donnell … perhaps Devious Maids and former All My Children Icon, Susan Lucci? In a new interview out today from Smashing Interviews Magazine, writer Melissa Parker asks Susan if she would ever be interested in hosting a talk show and suggested to her that one of their ideas for her was to be a co-host on The View! Lucci replied: “I love you, Melissa! You are fantastic (laughs). Thank you so much. Well, I’m sure I would enjoy that. Yeah. That would be spectacular. I think I could do it in New York, yeah. When Melissa responded,”That would fit right into your schedule!” Susan responded back, “It would. Yes.”
So what do you think? Would it be a kick to see Susan with Rosie and Whoopi? Do you think ABC should or could be considering Lucci? Is Susan giving us a hint? Weigh-in on this … and the soap opera that has become the revolving co-hosts of The View!
