I’m wondering if Vegas oddsmakers are now taking bets on who ABC’s Barbara Walters and producers of “The View” will hire to replace Rosie O’Donnell who recently said adios to the popular morning talk show.
Personally, I won’t miss Rosie at all, finding her abrasive and a limelight grabber. There are some interesting names out there already. Roseanne Barr, who has publicly said she wants the gig, is the horse I’m betting on today. She’s funny, versatile has excellent timing and could do this job with one hand tied behind her back.
Other names that are being tossed around are Whoopi Goldberg and Bette Midler. Love them both, and it could be interesting to see either in the role. So let’s all give Barbara Walters our two cents worth and tell her whom we want to see in Rosie’s old perch.
