Will Marie Osmond fill the empty 'View' seat?

by rjlight (writer), In between the bay and LA, June 01, 2007

There are many rumors going around as to who will replace Rosie O'Donnell on the popular talk show The View. One of the possiblities is Marie Osmond--very different from the departed Rosie. Other names being considered are Kathy Griffin, Wanda Sykes, Gayle King, Bette Midler, Kelly Ripa and Roseanne Barr. Earlier rumors had mentioned Joan Rivers, Connie Chung and Whoopi Goldberg.

Roseanne Barr apparently has said that she would want the job, however, something tells me she won't be selected. I think the next to fill the ever-changing View seat will be a less controversial female.

Rosie O'Donnell improved the ratings for the show in the year she hosted The View . However, I think she was a bit too combative for Barbara Walter's taste. During her short stint on the show she feuded with Donald Trump, Kelly Ripa and others. It was her heated argument with co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck that drove her to leave early.

In April O'Donnell had stated that she and the network couldn't agree on a contract and gave a mid-June departure date. After her argument with Hasselbeck she decided to call it quits early.

So, the question is who is going to fill that empty seat? Could it be the female half of the famous Osmond duo? With eight kids and her second divorce in the works she might not have much spare time. She would certaintly have an opinion on marriage and raising children,though,and I think she would leave Donald Trump alone.

I have to agree with that one. I almost mentioned my choices in the article--Whoopi was going to be one. I also think Wanda Sykes could be good for the show. Neither of them are full of themselves and would speak their minds. I really couldn't see any of the other ones fitting in - but what do I know.
