It's not even been a week and several names have already been rumored as replacement for Rosie O'Donnell when she leaves "The View" in June. Inside sources say that Connie Chung, Kathie Lee Gifford, Whoopi Goldberg and Joan Rivers are all at the top of a "replacement list." At the very, very top of that list is Roseanne Barr.
An inside source at the show said that producers are looking for a strong personality like Rosie's and Roseanne fits the bill. Roseanne's rep said that she hasn't even been approached and it's just a rumor. Roseanne told Larry King recently about joining the talk show:
"I'm not looking for the job. Well, I want $10 million, like Rosie."
Elisabeth Hasselcrack will announce on the show this morning that she's knocked up and will be taking maternity leave in the Fall. She's 3-months pregnant.
I knew this would happen. The View got themselves an A-lister in Rosie O'Donnell and now they are going to try and recreate the magic with a total has-been. It's not going to work. They should pack up and call it a day!
