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.
