Barbara Walters has officially announced that Whoopi Goldberg will replace Rosie O’Donnell as the new moderator for The View and will start her new gig after Labor Day. Walters issue the following statement:
She is brilliant, funny and irrepressible, and is an enormously popular and talented star. We are delighted that she is going to join the program as our moderator. This is going to be a great new chapter for ‘The View.
After the departure of Lisa Ling and Star Jones Reynolds its good to see some new color as oppose to the plain vanilla most recently. I can just see it now, Elisabeth Hasselbeck going to start talking about how good George Bush has been to this country and Whoopi breaking out some whoop ass never seen since the whole O’Donnell vs. Hasselbeck episode.
