Rosie to replace Rosie on The View

April 30th, 2007 // 63 Comments

Sources say that possible replacements being considered to replace Rosie O’Donnell next year on The View are Joan Rivers, Whoopi Goldberg, Kathie Lee Gifford and Connie Chung, but that Roseanne Barr is currently the top contender.

“They’re missing strong personalities on that show, and that’s what they’re going to need if they want to keep it going,” an ABC staffer close to the situation told the Post. “It’s going to be hard for them to follow Rosie,” says an industry insider. “Roseanne could be the only one capable of pulling it off.”

It’s like their only requirement for the job is being fat and annoying. They could replace Rosie O’Donnell with a giant screeching bat and it’d be the least annoying choice. Probably also the best looking.

    fuckin ew. first? i think not.

  2. dumbphuck

    i don’t get it tho, rosie was a talking garbage bin, but at least her leftist views made her sorta interesting. rosanne bar hasn’t been funny for a long time now.

    oh well, i don’t think we even get The View in australia.

  3. dumbphuck

    i’m tryin to get the first 3 posts in a row here, so i’m gonna vote dame edna to replace rosie

  4. I’m so disappointed to see that RuPaul is not even being considered.

    … I smell hot dogs boiling…

  6. Baba, what are you thinking?

  7. Kristin

    The view is so stupid anyways it really doesn’t matter whose hosting it.

  8. I like Roseanne. She’s fat & obnoxious, but in a good way. Unlike Rosie.

  9. DrPhowstus

    There was be a total weight requirement. Better than hiring two hosts, I suppose.

  10. Anything is better than rosie.

  11. bungoone

    i didn’t even recognize her in the photo. is

  12. fergernauster

    Rosie was merely clinically depressive, which endeared her to the mentally sick masses.

    Roseanne claims to have MPD and a lesser host of assorted mental maladies. This could be good TV.

    RRR (Replacement Remedy Revealed):
    whale-sized + thin-lipped + peri-/post-menopausal white + LOUD + neurotic and/or psychotic = WINNER.

    Roseanne was actually very good on the panel in a recent episode of Real Time With Bill Maher. Yeah, she’s unpredictable and maybe a little more than crazy, but on the Maher show, she fit in well. I tend to agree with The Donald when it comes to O’Donnell, even though I think The Donald is a dick…when he’s right he’s right. Next step in the right direction would be to dump Elisabeth Hasselbeck.

  14. Phazon

    @#2 yeah we do on the W Channel on Foxtel/Austar.

  15. TaiTai

    Why don’t they get John Travolta?

    “It’s like their only requirement for the job is being fat and annoying.”

    Somebody should send out the bat signal to Libraesque…

  17. Dureagonfly

    I think Whoopie would make a GREAT replacement..she has a strong personality, she’s political, and she is fu_king funny!!

  18. Binky

    I think they’re leaning toward Condi Rice or Ann Coulter.

  19. mada

    Whoopie would be an interesting choice.

    Whoopie [to Elizabeth]: “…no, child.”

  20. HoboChic

    Yes. Hands down, Whoopi. But I still ain’t watching. I have been pissed ever since they fired Debbie Matenopoulis. You’ll have to excuse me for not being able to spell her name–I don’t think I’ve seen it since she was unceremoniously canned. That Barb Walters is hardcore.

  21. DrPhowstus

    @20 —

  22. Ruby

    Wonder who The Donald will pick on now to get attention?

    TWENTY FIFTH DroopyMcLimpy!!!!!

  25. Sir Mister Guy Man Dude

    Has donald trump come out publicly with an “I told you so” yet?

  26. karatekachick

    I can’t believe I am saying this. Roseanne would be much better then Rosie. That in itself is SCARY!!!!!!!!

  27. erta

    THAT IS AWESOME!!!!!! I love Roseanne, her show was the SHIT!

  28. lambman

    Wasn’t the whole point of this show that they had women from different generations and backgrounds giving their “view” on current events?

    What’s the difference between Roseanne and Joy? They’re both about the same age, former comedians (though Joy was never funny) and white. 2 menopauseal comedians plus Barbara and that republican idiot….wow

  29. fergernauster

    No. No Whoopi. Her impressive and respectable career would deflate faster than Richard’s erection in the presence of naked female beauty.

    But, then again… isn’t Whoopi doing L.A. Weight Loss commercials?…

  30. xXrebeccaXx

    Well I like Roseanne…she’s funny as hell. I still watch the re-runs of the show. I think she’d be great on The View. I watch the show almost every day and I’d love to see Roseanne on there…maybe I’ll actually laugh while watching it :D

  31. anothershityear

    let’s make sure about R.Barr’s requirements first

    fat and/or ugly : check
    extremely stupid : check
    loud / obnoxious / grating : check

    i’m looking forward to not seeing her on that show i’ve never watched and never will

    #24, #25 ltm
    #26 yes he has. yes, he has.

    notice how Ronald Mc’Donnell has latched herself onto that conspiracy-theory group now

    give her credit for one thing, she finds a rabid demographic and relentlessly pretends to be like them, she has absolutely no identity of her own that probably helpsw

    - This little piggy had roast beef.
    - This little piggy had none.
    - This little piggy said “yes yes yes Barbara I’ll do it”
    - Because the other little piggy was kicked off The View.

  33. Jedi Kevin

    And you thought it was difficult to masturbate to The View before…

  34. jrzmommy♠

    Is there a difference?

  35. chaunceygardner

    It’s nice that aggravating obese cunts are finally getting their due, spewing their unwanted and uninteresting thoughts and opinions on television, rather than from behind the counter at the DMV.

  36. woodhorse

    #23 I don’t know, but my money’s on Roseanne. I have adored her ever since she bitch slapped Arsenio Hall back into place and made the remark that her outlook on life is skewed because they didn’t have Trailer Trash Barbie or Alcoholic Housewife Barbie.

  37. woodhorse

    #30 between you and Barbado’s biting sarcasm, we are never going to get Richard to come back. You make me sad. Richard was fabulous.

  38. woodhorse

    #34 Why do you want to make it difficult? Get a magazine – Double Duty hey! Save some electricity.

  39. woodhorse

    #16 I have tried – God knows how I have tried not to feed into your Libraesque diatribe, but Dear God! “somebody should send out the bat signal” has me laughing so hard I can’t even fucking type…

  40. Ruby

    Woodhorse, I agree that Roseanne could probably feed it to the Donald. Besides, he can’t use the lesbian excuse on her. RBLTC.

    “It’s like their only requirement for the job is being fat and annoying. They could replace Rosie O’Donnell with a giant screeching bat and it’d be the least annoying choice. Probably also the best looking.”

    Ok, I like the site, but just one suggestion. Sometimes Less is more. You could have finished off this article with just the first part “”It’s like their only requirement for the job is being fat and annoying.” Boom! That would have been hilarious. I think where you goof sometimes is you’re trying too hard to say something clever and out there and sometimes that causes you to write too much…or to write things like this “It’s like their only requirement for the job is being fat and annoying. They could replace Rosie O’Donnell with a giant screeching bat and it’d be the least annoying choice. Probably also the best looking.”

    Seriously, I’m not trying to bag on you because the first part…..perfect.

    Now, as for Roseanne….frankly I think she’d do a better Job than Rosie…at eating PUSSY!

    Thank you and good-night.

  42. anothershityear

    #42 you brought up an intriguing question

    blindfolded + with nose-plugs to prevent smelling their decaying snatches
    which of those two would be better at giving head?

    i think i agree: Roseanne

  43. justme

    The View should hire Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger.

  44. DrPhowstus

    @44 — I disagree. They should hire someone Black.

  45. sikofdis

    I think they should just call the show “Cunt-Fest”! At least it would be an honest title for what viewers should expect.

  46. NicotineEyePatch

    46, I like your politics.

  47. sikofdis

    thanks 47…I’m all for Truth in advertising.

    Whoever said it above, word: The View sucks no matter who’s on it. They’re all a bunch of annoying bitches and Barbara Walters is the queen of annoying bitches. How I wish she’d get run over by a bus or mauled to death by an escaped tiger from the zoo. If that happened, I’d laugh and laugh… Come to think of it, they could replace The View with footage of all of them being mauled to death by various animals (polar bears! sharks! a pack of dingoes! a hippo!) and I would make sure and always Tivo that shit. That’d be awesome. Must see TV, you might say.
