Who Will Enjoy "The View"?
Now that Star Jones has left the building, who will replace her? Very early on, Gayle King's name was mentioned as a possibility. With the exit of Meredith Viera, many think that a newswoman is needed. Gayle was said to have taken many meetings with the producers, but so far nothing has been announced. Three new names have also popped up on the scene. Ricki Lake is currently enjoying minor success with Gameshow Marathon. She is of course a talk show veteran and her name is the latest to possibly fill this vacant seat. Another GM performer and former Trading Spaces host, Paige Davis, has also been talked about. Paige doesn't have any experience in the talk show world, but is a familiar face to TV audiences. And lastly, E! Correspondent, Jules Asner, has also been rumored as Star's replacement.
What's my two cents? Personally I feel the show needs someone that isn't white. I mean...Hasselcrack is as white as white can be, Rosie is white, Joy is white and Babs is white. Not all American woman are of this color. Out of this four, I would definitely say Gayle King. Yeah, she's Oprah's lackey but she's smart and isn't a show pony. You got two show ponies on the stage in Rosie and Joy and there needs to be someone to mellow things out. Hasselcrack doesn't count, cause bitch is dumb and a waste of space.
So, I'm rooting for Gayle. Hopefully, she will get the job and bounce out of Oprah's shadows.
Screw it, give the job to Hottie!
