It has been reported that ABC’s ‘The View’ may go through lineup changes this year. Co-host Rosie Perez is rumored to be leaving the show after only 4 months on the job and the producers have been quietly testing guest co-hosts as a possible replacement. Michelle Williams has appeared on the show several times throughout the years and was most recently asked to guest co-host. According to the Daily Mail, the producers were really impressed with Michelle during her first guest appearance and asked her to return for a second appearance. She is now possibly the front runner for the job.
ABC is very interested in wooing younger co-hosts to fill Perez’s seat and the fifth seat that was never filled in it’s attempt to save the show.
The front runner now is former Destiny’s Child singer Michelle Williams, 34, who came in for a single guest hosting position on January 7 and was so impressive executives brought her back for an unplanned follow-up appearance days later.
‘She’s smart, witty, has A-List celebrity relationships that can benefit the show and isn’t afraid to sell a segment. She let O’Donnell pop a pimple on her chin on live TV during her first appearance,’ said the insider.
