After weeks of fan and media speculation, could THE VIEW be ready to announce a replacement for ROSIE O'DONNELL? ROSIE's empty seat as co-host could be getting filled by none other than WHOOPI GOLDBERG, reports the NATIONAL ENQUIRER.
"As far as everyone at ABC is concerned, [WHOOPI] has the job," a network insider reportedly said.
According to the report, THE VIEW will utilize guest hosts throughout the summer, with WHOOPI taking permanent residence as co-host in the fall. "Nothing has been officially announced," says the insider. "But it is 99% WHOOPI at this point."
ACCESS HOLLYWOOD received word from WHOOPI's office refuting the ENQUIRER's report.
"This is not accurate," said a rep. "No deal has been made, no deal has even been offered. And WHOOPI still has a nationally syndicated daily morning FM radio show."
