Looks like there will be one less spot to fill on The View after two of the show’s hosts, Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy were given the boot.
TMZ is reporting that Rosie O’Donnell has officially finalized negotiations and will be returning to The View, joining the show once again after leaving after one season in 2007. At the time, Rosie said in a statement that “my needs for the future just didn’t dovetail with that ABC was able to offer me,” reported Fox News. Rosie made an appearance on The View in February of this year and received positive reviews, with many hoping for a comeback. Perhaps that gave the push ABC needed to meet Rosie’s financial demands.
It has been reported by TMZ that ABC is still on the hunt for a Latina and a conservative to join Rosie and now cohost Whoopi Goldberg. Fans of the show are going to be very happy with the changes. Rosie was well-liked while on the show, and could always be counted on to shake things up a little. The official announcement is said to happy any time now.
