None other that comedian Whoopi Goldberg will be replacing washed up celeb Rosie O’Donnell on “The View” this fall.Â Good ole Barbara Walters made the announcement on the morning talk show on Wednesday, to many cheers & applause.
Walters told the crowd, â€œI have known Whoopi for years. She is brilliant, funny and irrepressible, and is an enormously popular and talented star.”
â€œThis is going to be a great new chapter for The View.â€
WhoopiÂ has been a guest on the TV talk show several times before & will be making her moderator debut September 4, at the start of the eleventh season.Â Jeez, has it really been that long?!
Goldberg said she is looking forward to the task, saying, â€œIâ€™m really glad to be doing The View.”
â€œItâ€™s a show I like with people I like, and Iâ€™m looking forward to it.â€
Looking forward to seeing Whoopi back in action!
