Leah Remini: ‘The View’ Co-Host? — Actress On Short List To Join Show
“Leah Remini has been on a short list of celebs to join The View,” a source revealed to HollywoodLife.com exclusively. However, “she is not on the top of the list. The search is still on and they hope to have more names by the [Television Critics Association on July 19].”
As previously reported by HollywoodLife.com, Rosie O’Donnell‘s official announcement will be made at the TCAs, so it will certainly be a big night for ABC to make some big decisions.
“They have an idea of the direction they want to pursue but it is still up for grabs for someone new and fresh to be on the show,” our HollywoodLife.com source continued. “Discussions are ongoing and intense. They focused a lot of their attention on getting Rosie back, so now they have more time to look elsewhere now that she has joined.
“They want to complete the process sooner than later.”
