The producers of The View certainly aren't letting Elisabeth Hasselbeck's chair grow cold while she's on maternity leave.
Hot on the heels of Kate Gosselin's headline-making co-hosting stint (new hairdo!) comes word of two new Hasselbeck understudies: The Hills villainess Heidi Montag on Oct. 1 and American Idol judge Kara DioGuardi on Oct. 15.
Both ladies have been guests on The View, and both had memorable moments while in the hot seat.
Heidi and her husband Spencer Pratt had their View sit-down in June, when Whoopi Goldberg chided them for airing their dirty laundry on the pages of celebrity tabloids. Whoopi gave the couple a stern warning that if they didn't get it together and grow up, they might lose their "jobs" as reality TV stars.
Kara last appeared on the show to discuss the results of American Idol. A major topic of that conversation was Adam Lambert's surprise loss to winner Kris Allen, and whether or not his being gay influenced voters. (She said she hoped that the Idol voters based their decisions on talent and not sexuality.)
Other upcoming stand-ins for Elisabeth Hasselbeck will include Little House on the Prairie star Melissa Gilbert on Sept. 28; Gloria Estefan on Sept. 29; Lisa Ling on Oct. 5 and 6; Ugly Betty star Ana Ortiz on Oct. 8; and The Big Bang Theory's Kaley Cuoco, on Oct. 13.
