According to reports, Whoopi Goldberg is a lock to replace Rosie O’Donnell on ‘The View‘ in the fall. Goldberg is said to have been chosen over the likes of Kathy Griffin, Roseanne Barr, Ricki Lake and Gayle King. While there are no details on how the decision was reached, it sadly did not involve a fight to the death between the oh so tolerable potential choices.
According to sources, Roseanne Barr is the leading candidate to replace Rosie O’Donnell next year on The View. Insiders claims that producer Barbara Walters has been seeking someone capable of maintaining the blubber to blabber ratio introduced by O’Donnell and Roseanne would certainly fit the bill.
