*Could you imagine, Whoopi Goldberg, Rosie O’Donnell and Sarah Palin all at the Hot Topics table on “The View?”
According to rumors and reports, this could very well be the new look when the show begins its new season in September.
TMZ is reporting that the left-leaning O’Donnell has just finished negotiations and will join Goldberg as the lone two confirmed co-hosts . She originally left the ABC program in 2007 after a huge on-air fight with right-leaning co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck.
TMZ says ABC will make the official announcement of Rosie’s return “shortly.”
Rosie’s hiring follows the departure of Barbara Walters from the program in May and the announcement that both Jenny McCarthy and Sherri Shepherd are leaving.
Meanwhile, ET is reporting that Palin is in early discussions to be on the show, but she is just one of many being considered. Some on the production believe she might be too polarizing for the daytime talk show audience.
