The View announced on air today that Whoopi Goldberg would be replacing former co-host Rosie O'Donnell. Star Jones's old spot on the panel still remains unfilled. Hopefully Sherri Shepard will get that spot - although the article warns us not to hold our breath. (Another source says talks broke down between Shepard and ABC.)
The show lost my interest when Rosie left. I thought it was refreshing to hear my side of some of the debates actually expressed instead of whitewashed over. Thousands dead in Iraq? Pshaw. Elizabeth Hasselbeck doesn't care - she'd rather sing BushCo's praises. And Barbara Walters take a stand on anything? Riiiiight... Whoopi at least isn't shy about speaking her mind. Quotes from Whoopi and Rosie after the jump.
