Extra is reporting that Rosie O'Donnell is expected to fill Meredith Vieira's seat on the morning talk show. This should make things very interesting considering Rosie was just bashing Star Jones. I wonder if they will sit next to each other?
"Extra" has learned exclusively that Rosie O'Donnell will be named the newest co-host of "The View," replacing the exiting Meredith Vieira.
ABC is expected to make the official announcement Friday, April 28.
The short list of other candidates reportedly included Connie Chung, Patricia Heaton and Soledad O'Brien.
This will be Rosie's big return since her Emmy winning morning talk show ended in 2002. I wonder how different she will be since she probably can't throw any koosh balls into the audience with Barbara Walters sitting by her side. I must say I was shocked to see she was the chosen one but it should shake things up so I look forward to seeing what happens.
