Courtney Love Was Robbed

June 11th, 2007 // 17 Comments

This is kind of eh. Whoopi Goldberg looks to be Rosie O’Donnell’s replacement on “The View”. I was seriously pulling for Courtney Love or even Roseanne or battleaxe Sharon Osbourne. They need a crazy in there to keep the momentum going. Whoopi should do ok, I guess. I can’t see her putting up with the twit at the end of the table.

“As far as everyone at ABC is concerned, she has the job,” a network insider confirms to Star. “They have been meeting with Kathy Griffin, Rosanne Barr, Ricki Lake and Gayle King.” While Kathy was a strong contender, Whoopi has won everyone over.”

“Everyone is acting like Whoopi already has the gig,” the show insider adds.

“Whoopi has a radio show, she lives in NYC and she is an institution. She also is liberal and outspoken but not crazy like Rosie was. She will be a perfect fit as far as the ladies on The View are concerned.” Nothing has been officially announced,” says the insider. “But it is 99 percent Whoopi at this point. They will have a few guest hosts throughout the summer but the executives and producers at The View are set on Ms. Goldberg to start in the fall.”

Supposedly, she’s even being offered the same kind of year-to-year contract Ro had. So she can jet when the going gets tough. Or when she can’t stand Barbara’s musty odor anymore. You know there’s a smell of gravedust going on.

  1. I agree!! I was really pulling for Roseanne. I miss her fine blue-collar ass.

    Finally a real, unfiltered statement from Paris Hilton regarding her incarceration and addressing her scene-stealing lookalike Natalie Reid.

    I think they went with Whoopi because she’s working the low-key personality. She might want to whip out some whoopass on the Hasselback, but she’d just save it for off-camera. I do wish they had accepted Roseanne ‘cus I would’ve loved to see a recreation of split-screen ’07. I’m betting the producers passed over KG, b/c even she has her smackdown moments. & I think 1 attack on EH per decade is fine. Oh, well. I love Whoops, but the View is standing on its last legs and I just wish they’d stop trying to beat the dead horse. I think she’ll follow Rosie’s 1-year exit strategy.

  6. Whoopi is a natural choice: she is a bit older and can keep a tight rein on the mouthy ones.

    The radio show sucks from the inception and it hasn’t gotten any better. Makes you wonder who owns the station, someone from the the West Coast for sure, someone without a clue….

    Whoopi is an okay choice BUT I think Kathy G. would have been a much BETTER choice. Hell, I even think Rosanne would have been a better choice. Maybe in the future those two women will be brought in. Personally, I think Whoopi is a little TOO laid-back.

    the only thing that matters to the network is the ratings and they are going to be in the toilet due to this boring choice. she is boring when she is on that show BORINGGGGGGGZZZZZZZZ

    Sharon Osborne would have been SO awesome. She knows her celebutards and has a tart tongue…shame on the View for taking a ass sucking substitute.

    meh, as everyone says, Whoopi’s a bit low-key. Sharon Osbourne or Roseanne would have been awesome. I know she’s unpopular, but I think Roseanne’s actually quite smart, and I think Sharon’s capable of putting a literal smack-down on someone.

    how can you put up a post asking your commentors to “play nice” yesterday, and then constantly bash the “conservative” on the view? do you think all your readers are liberals? would you like all conservatives to stop coming to your site? just wondering.

  13. Joya

    I think Kathy would have been a better choice. The show is a bunch of old ladies around a table… yes, even Elizabeth.

    Whoopie is hilarious but not when she’s censored. ;o)
