Though the official statement is said to come sometime next week, word is that the empty seats next to Barbara Walters have been filled.
The L.A. Times is reporting that ABC plans to hire Whoopi Goldberg and Sherri Shepherd to join Babs and the other girls, Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Joy Behar, on The View. Both funny ladies have guest-hosted on the show a bunch of times, and now have been offered the jobs to replace former hosts Rosie O'Donnell, who left the show amidst a battle with Elisabeth in June, and Star Jones who exited in 2006.
I'm just happy we can finally stop talking about this, but let's go out with a bang. Are you happy with the new choices? Would you have rather seen ABC hire a guy? What about potential fill-ins Kathy Griffin or Roseanne Barr? Do tell.
