Whoopi Goldberg will join "The View"

 The replacement of Rosie O'Donnell on "The View" has been chosen, Whoopi Goldberg will be the new co-host on the show.

Whoopi Goldberg will join "The View" After weeks of rumors, Barbara Walters announced that Whoopi Goldberg will be the Rosie O'Donnell replacement on "The View". As we reported last week, the decision for the new co-host of the popular show was swinging between Whoopi Goldberg and Sherri Shepherd.

 In a statement, Barbara Walters told the viewers: "I have known Whoopi for years. She is brilliant, funny and irrepressible, and is an enormously popular and talented star. We are delighted that she is going to join the program as our moderator. This is going to be a great new chapter for 'The View.'"

 Whoopi Goldberg admitted she was thrilled to be part of the show and is looking forward to the debates. "I'm going to be a little meaner than normal," she said jokingly.

 Barbara Walters has been searching for a replacement of O'Donnell ever since she left "The View" in May, after a heated debate over Bush's policy, which escalated to almost a fist-fight with co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck. The online betting website Bodog Sports offered odds on the O'Donnell's replacement, but Whoopi Goldberg was not listed on the props. This means that the website would pay out 5/1 for "the field" to anyone cleverly placing that bet.
