Whoopi is the new Rosie on 'The View'



Tbdwhoopi080207_2 Whoopi Goldberg got a “big ol’ thrill” Wednesday, being named as the replacement moderator for Rosie O’Donnell on The View.

“I love this show,” Goldberg said. “I love coming on it. I love hanging out with you guys.” Whoopi ran up and down the aisles of the audience on the show live when Barbar Walters made the announcement.

That leaves one more space to fill, since Star Jones Reynolds’ spot has yet to be replaced. Talks with actress Sherri Shepherd are still ongoing, the AP reports. As for Goldberg, she’s not the heavyweight brawler Rosie was, but we’ll be interested to see how she deals with Elizabeth Hasselbeck.
