Elisabeth Hasselcrack is out, Joy Behar is out and now there’s a rumor that Barbara Walters is also leaving the den of cackling hyenas, because she thinks that with all the changes happening to the show, now would be a good time to take her final bow. Right now, there’s two slots to fill (Fun fact: 2Slots2Fill is John Travolta’s profile name on Gaydar), but there could be three if Barbara Walters quits that bitch. Showbiz411 says that one of the empty chairs is probably going to go to Brooke Shields.
When the rumor that Joy Behar was leaving came out, Brooke’s name came up as a possibility for her replacement. Brooke’s name is apparently sitting at the top of the list and Barbara really wants her. Brooke hasn’t yet signed her name in blood on a contract, but she’s very close to doing it.
Brooke Shields is smart, articulate and she seems sane, which is why she has no business being on The View! Sane thoughts do not belong on The View. With Joy, Elisabeth and maybe Barbara gone, the insanity levels have dropped and casting Brooke isn’t going to bring them up. I want to see meltdowns. I want incoherent rants. I want to see chairs, weaves and fists flying. What I’m saying is that ABC should just cancel The View and instead air backstage footage from Good Morning America of Sam Champion throwing a fit when the tanning bed in his dressing room breaks down.
