Just days after it was reported that Michelle Collins was let go from The View, comes word that they have already found her replacement. According to Variety, GMA’s weekend anchor Sara Haines will be joining the show next season.
On a positive note, she is a journalist. On negative note, they still have all the other people on that panel. They need to get rid of everyone and start over again. My smart friend suggested that they bring back Meredith Vieira to take over the lead position. Imagine how much better the show would be with in her charge over Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar. At least she knows her stuff.
The View can’t keep a panel together for more than a year, no matter how hard they try. According to Variety the latest victim is Comedian Michelle Collins. Out of all the people on the panel, she is the only one I think they should keep. Whoopi Golddberg should’ve been gone a long time ago. She says the stupidest things. Almost as dumb as the things child stars Raven Symone and Candace Cameron Bure say. Why are they still there? Although rumor has it Symone is leaving and Variety says that Bure might be too busy with Fuller House to come back. Then there is Joy Behar, why did ABC bring back that loud mouth who thinks because you she talks the loudest she is always right. She never is.
Here is my solution for The View, cancel it. OK, they won’t do that just yet, then get rid of the whole panel and get two journalists, a homemaker, a politician and a celebrity to talk about the issuers of the day. Listening to a bunch of actresses and comedians talk for an hour is not whose views I care about.
Granted I’ve never seen an episode of the show and I like it that way!
The View is going to have their annual Halloween episode tomorrow and the women dressed up as some of the Disney Villainesses. Although, I am not sure if they are really in costume up because they always look that way. Well, maybe they are dressed nicer than they normally do.
When The View started out this season things were twice as rosy there with Rosie O’Donnell and Rosie Perez. Before the year ended O’Donnell left the show and now at the end of the season Perez is following her out the door.
The actress says she is departing to focus on her career; but there have been rumors the show hasn’t been happy with her performance and was planning on cutting her.
At this rate, they should honestly just cancel the show. It feels like it is time. What do you think?
Rosie O’Donnell is not only splitting with her wife of three years, the separation is causing her to also leave The View. Her rep told PageSix, â€œI can confirm that Rosie and her wife Michelle (Rounds) split in November. Rosie has teens and an infant at home that need her attention. This has been a very stressful situation. She is putting her personal health and family first.” Then she added, “ABC has been wonderfully understanding and supportive of her personal decision to leave â€˜The View.â€™ Next week will be her last.â€
I am sure the show was supportive and understanding, she hasn’t proven to be the ratings getter they were hoping for. In fact, I think almost all of the press about her being on the show has been negative, so I am assume they were happy they get rid of their failed experiment.
When it comes to who the daytime talk show should get to replace her, I think they should try to find someone more positive. All that negative energy is too much for people to handle before noon.
Blake Shelton was on The Tonight Show yesterday and Jimmy Fallon challenged him to a game of The Whisper Challenge. Basically, one guy wore head phones with blaring music as the other one read him a phrase that he had to guess. The Voice coach got Benedict Cumberbatch and even though he didn’t think he said it correctly, he did. Then after the NBC late night host got it, Shelton said, “That doesn’t even mean anything.” Then when it was explained to him that Cumberbatch was nominated for an Oscar, he was like, “Who? That’s a person?…I’ve never even heard of that.” Where is Watson when you need him?
How has the singer never heard of Benedict Cumberbatch? I guess that coaching on The Voice, recording new music and touring, there isn’t any time left for him to do anything else.
You know what, now that I think about it. Since Shelton doesn’t even know who Cumberbatch is, I think it would be fun if the Oscars got him to present. Imagine how bad he would screw up the names of the people he doesn’t know, which is probably almost of the nominees. Imagine if David Oyelowo got nominated and he had to try to say that name?
It looks someone took off the Rosie colored glasses from The View because The Wrap is reporting that Rosie Perez is not coming back. The actress is currently on hiatus from the show because she is rehearsing for a Broadway show and now it is being rumored they don’t want her back.
The show’s first season without Barbara Walters has been a ratings dud, so it looks they want to make some changes and go younger. Perez is 50, so they are seeking candidates half her age like Naya Rivera. The Glee star’s comments have been giving the talk show some much needed press in the last few days, so her name doesn’t surprise. In fact, I was already thinking that she would be a good replacement for the struggling show. Much better than Rosie Perez that was an odd choice from her announcement.
At this point, the network is denying this rumor, but I am sure there is truth to it because something has to be done if they want to save this show.
Granted, I think having two Alpha females on the show like Rosie O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg was a bigger mistake than hiring Rosie Perez. But not by much.
Today on The View, while talking to Ashanti about the flu shot, a loud sound was heard. Without missing a beat Whoopi Goldberg stood up, claiming she was the one who made the noise.
So do you think she farted or it was a sound effect. Since, she has cut the cheese before of the daytime talk show, I wouldn’t put it past the Oscar winner to do it again.
We are less that two weeks away from a Barbara Walters-less The View and yesterday we found out who will be joining Whoopi Goldberg and Rosie O’Donnell on the daytime talk show. ABC announced that actress Rosie Perez and Nicolle Wallace, communications chief for George W. Bushâ€™s White House and re-election campaign and senior advisor for the McCain-Palin campaign in 2008, will be sitting at the table with them this season. Perez said it best in the press release, â€œI am beyond thrilled, honored and completely surprised that I’ve been asked to join â€˜The Viewâ€™.â€ Who wasn’t surprised when they heard she was joining the show? I mean, if this was 20 years ago, I would be excited about these four co-hosts. But it is 2014 and they are so 1994.
I think that people will tune in for premiere week out of curiosity, and then they will tune out. I just see a lot of screaming and talking over each other when it comes to the three actresses and that gets old, fast. At least to me it does.
The View is going to look a whole lot different next season because not only did they lose Barbara Walters to retirement, they are also losing Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy to the pink slip. According to what ABC told Variety, the ladies were reportedly fired today to make way for “an exciting new direction.” What that new direction is, do we really care because who watches this talk show anymore?
When it comes to Sherri and Jenny’s departures, it really isn’t that surprising. Shepherd’s personal life was news this year, and I am sure the show wanted to distance themselves from it. And when it comes to Donnie Wahlberg’s fiancee, she was an awful hire from the get go.
Oh well, at least they kept Whoopi Goldberg. Which is a good thing because it keeps her too busy to act more often.
