Rosie Perez has been named a new co-host of The View, joining Republican political analyst Nicolle Wallace, Whoopi Goldberg, and Rosie O’Donnell for the upcoming new season beginning Sept. 15.

The Latina actress-dancer-director-choreographer (say that five times fast) is perfect for ABC’s daytime talk show. Here are seven reasons why. READ FULL STORY

Rosie Perez and Nicolle Wallace round out panel on 'The View'

It looks like there will be two Rosies sitting on the panel on The View this season.

Actress Rosie Perez and political analyst Nicolle Wallace will be rounding out the panel of hosts on The View, joining moderator Whoopi Goldberg and Rosie O’Donnell. A performer on stage and screen, Perez is best known for her roles in Do The Right Thing, The Counselor, and Fearless, for which she was nominated for an Academy Award.

“I am beyond thrilled, honored and completely surprised that I’ve been asked to join The View,” Perez said in a statement. “Knowing that I’ll be in the company of Whoopi, Rosie and Nicolle, three very smart and engaging women that I have an immense amount of respect for, makes it even more unbelievable.  The opportunity to connect with our nation’s audience on a daily basis… icing on the cake! Very happy.”

Wallace is an author and political analyst for MSNBC, and she worked as communications chief for George W. Bush’s administration and was the senior advisor for the McCain-Palin ticket in 2008.

“I am honored to join the tradition of compelling conversations that has been the signature of The View for the better part of two decades,” Wallace said in a statement. “I have watched The View for many years and now to be seated alongside three women that I have admired is both humbling and incredibly exciting.”

Along with the two new hosts comes a new executive producer, Bill Wolff, who will replace long-running exec Bill Geddie. Wolff recently served as vice president of programming at MSNBC and was executive producer of The Rachel Maddow Show. These changes come as The View reinvents itself for the new season with a new logo, studio design, and color scheme.

The View returns with a live premiere on Monday, Sept. 15 at 11 pm ET on ABC.

Rosie O'Donnell returning to 'The View' as a guest

Proving nothing is impossible in the world of daytime television, Rosie O’Donnell is coming back to The View, at least for a day.

The show announced Monday that O’Donnell will be a guest on the daytime gabfest on Feb. 7. O’Donnell’s tenure as a panelist on the ABC show seven years ago was notably stormy. O’Donnell said after leaving that she had experienced something like post-traumatic stress disorder, and show creator Barbara Walters said she resented the way O’Donnell dumped on the show.

Elisabeth Hasselbeck raves about joining 'Fox & Friends' in new promo -- VIDEO

To Elisabeth Hasselbeck, the Fox & Friends morning show felt like home long before she actually got to work there.

It was regular viewing at home for Hasselbeck, whose 10 years on The View ended in July. She’ll debut as Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade’s new partner on Fox & Friends on Monday, after the departing Gretchen Carlson offered farewells Friday.

“I’d almost make the analogy that it’s being called up to play for one of your favorite teams in the major leagues,” said Hasselbeck, whose opening week will include a series of reports with the cast of Duck Dynasty. Check out a promo for Hasselbeck’s new gig below:

Jenny McCarthy makes 'View' debut, gets flirty with Donnie Wahlberg: On the scene

If one word could sum up The View‘s 17th season premiere this morning, it might just be the newly Miley Cyrus-approved ‘Twerk.’ Sure, the VMAs were a few weeks ago — but the ladies of the panel had much to catch up on. The gang also had a brand new addition: Jenny McCarthy, looking daytime-ready in a gorgeous, conservative houndstooth dress.

The goofy spirit that has helped McCarthy continue to get work — whether modeling, writing humorous autobiographical books, or starring in her eponymous, now-defunct talk show — was fully on display during her first hour as an official View co-host. As for her controversial (to say the least) opinions about childhood vaccinations? The show is clearly saving that for another day. Today, the program was all about silly McCarthy.

“I said to Jenny, ‘Have fun!'” Sherri Shepherd told EW after the taping. “That’s what Jenny is all about. She’s fearless. I don’t know if Human Resources really knew what they were doing when they hired Jenny McCarthy. I’ve known her for a decade and a half, so I don’t think they know the full impact yet. She’s just warming up!” READ FULL STORY

Highlights of Joy Behar's last show on 'The View' -- VIDEO

After 16 seasons, Joy Behar bid farewell to The View today. The hour-long goodbye episode, taped Thursday, was billed as “This Was Your Life on The View” and was hosted by comic Mario Cantone (Sex and the City). In addition to showing taped messages from stars and choice clips — including Behar buckling Tom Cruise onto the couch, her declining fashion advice from RuPaul, her walking away from Bill O’Reilly, and her getting a foot massage from Matthew McConaughey — producers lined up a slew of surprise in-studio guests.

First up was Regis Philbin, who told the story of how Behar really got on Barbara Walters’ radar. As Behar killed at Milton Berle’s 89th birthday party in 1997, Walters leaned over to Philbin and asked who she was. Former View cohost Meredith Vieira was next, and she described the “faint smell of peppermint and gin” on Behar’s breath when they kissed on the show. Cue the montage of Behar kissing female guests. Then Vieira kissing Behar. Behar kissing Walters. Walters kissing Vieira. Philbin kissing Goldberg and Sherri Shepherd. And Goldberg and Shepherd kissing Behar.

Elisabeth Hasselbeck says farewell to 'The View' -- VIDEO

In an emotional farewell speech, Elisabeth Hasselbeck officially said goodbye to her decade-long career on ABC’s The View.

“Today is officially my last day at The View and for a decade, I’ve been able to work efficiently at this table only because, and I mean this with my whole heart, that everyone behind the scenes worked more efficiently,” Hasselbeck said.

Hasselbeck also confirmed reports that she would be starting at Fox & Friends in September, Hasselbeck thanked executives at the Fox network for the opportunity.

Barbara Walters addresses 'View' rumors: 'The truth is we love Elisabeth'

Whoopi Goldberg began this morning’s The View with the obvious: “It’s been kind of a crazy weekend.”

“People say the times are a-changin’,” she said at the top of the hour, referring to the “story after story” about who would and would not be leaving The View in the wake of Joy Behar’s announcement that she would be exiting the popular panel show.

(Behar, for her part, debuted a list of “Top 10 Reasons for Leaving The View” that Sherri Shepherd and Elisabeth Hasselbeck thought were hi-larious. A sample: “No. 10: ABC won’t let me drink on the air like Hoda and Kathy Lee.”)

Before the gang could get to the day’s “hot topics,” Barbara Walters leaned forward to explain what was really up with the 17-year-old talk show, and to address rumors that Hasselbeck would be following Behar out the door. “There is a particularly false story that keeps getting picked up about Elisabeth’s departure,” she said, referring to rumors that Hasselbeck was being pushed out due to her conservative views.

“The truth is we love Elisabeth,” Walters continued. “I like her personally and she’s just a wonderful person — but beyond that, we value and appreciate her point-of-view … We have no plans for Elisabeth to leave the show.”

Elisabeth Hasselbeck also leaving 'The View': Report

ABC announced View co-host Joy Behar’s decision to leave the morning talk show yesterday, and today Us Weekly reports that Elisabeth Hasselbeck is out of there, too — and it may not be voluntary. The report pointed to market research that claimed people found the conservative Hasselbeck “too extreme and right-wing.” ABC has yet to comment. In the statement about Behar, ABC referred to Hasselbeck as a “valued member of the View” with a “long-term contract.”

The question now is whether the network will cast for new co-hosts or simply not renew The View. Should the show go on with remaining hosts Whoopi Goldberg, Sherri Shepherd, and Barbara Walters?

Regis Philbin to host Fox Sports cable show -- UPDATE

He’s baaack!

Television legend Regis Philbin has been without a regular TV gig since leaving Live! With Regis and Kelly in 2011. But this summer, Reeg will return to the airwaves with a series on Fox Sports 1 — a new channel that will replace the Fox-owned Speed channel on cable.

Philbin’s new show — and Fox Sports 1’s very existence — won’t officially be announced until this afternoon. [Update: It's official!] Still, the advent of both is one of showbusiness’s worst-kept secrets; after some prodding from Barbara Walters, Philbin spilled the beans about his upcoming project on The View yesterday. “Yes, I think I will be doing another show,” the host said vaguely before giving a few specifics: “Fox is starting a sports channel. Everybody is starting a sports channel now, you know? Nothing but 24 hours of sports … Regis is going to have a show on that.” READ FULL STORY
