A Rosie By Any Other Name...

One Rosie to replace another Rosie? Can you handle it? The New York Post is saying that loud-mouth comedienne Roseanne Barr is the leading contender to fill Rosie O'Donnell's spot on The View. "She's a piece of work, she's a character, she says what's on her mind and she's funny," said a source close to the show about Roseanne. "They're missing strong personalities on that show, and that's what they're going to need if they want to keep it going," another ABC staffer said. During an appearance on Larry King last week, Roseanne was vague about her future plans."I'm not looking for the job," she said at one point. "Well, I want $10 million, like Rosie," she later joked. She also never came right out and said she wouldn't take the gig if offered. Ro's rep says she hasn't been approached by the show. Other contenders mentioned as possible replacements -- Joan Rivers (God help us), Whoopi Goldberg (could be decent), Kathie Lee Gifford (NO MORE CODY AND CASSIDY, EVER!) and Connie Chung (Boring!). Roseanne does seems like the best fit out of these options, but I think they should keep looking. Oh, and Babs, I'm available.
