A reprieve seems to have saved Elisabeth Hasselbeck’s job over at THE VIEW, despite negative feelings by many viewers. Other cast members, including Barbra Walters must have appealed to the show’s producers to allow Hasselbeck to stay, party because she was a friend of the other cast members, and partly because the other cast members appreciated the importance of her conservative balance to their mostly liberal opinions. All of this proves that you can be the best of friends with someone even if you don’t agree on everything.
In other news, it is possible that Brooke Shields could be offered Joy Behar’s place on the show. It is rumored that she’s among the top picks to replace Joy Behar. Perez Hilton claims that a politically conservative Latina will replace Joy Behar. But, that seems unlikely because viewers don’t even react well to Hasselbeck’s conservative views, where she does best when offering views on nonpolitical issues. The show simply does best when the mostly liberal views represent the mostly liberal views of this show’s own audience. Viewers want what they already believe to simply be reaffirmed by the show’s panel it seems, rather than a true political debate.
