Jenny McCarthy "In Serious Talks" to Join The View as Joy Behar's Replacement
Make room on the couch! Frequent View guest cohost Jenny McCarthy may be joining the ABC morning talk show full-time.
"She is in serious talks right now," an insider tells Us Weekly of the star, 40, who is currently hosting her own low-rated chatfest on VH1. "Her show isn't quite working out, so she's definitely open to it."
The sassy single mom would replace Joy Behar, 70, when the comedian moves on in August, reveals another source. "The cast and crew get a kick out of Jenny," adds a set source. "She's a good fit. She may not be able to carry a show, but she works well with a group ensemble."
A third insider adds Brooke Shields, 48, is also in talks to replace Elisabeth Hasselbeck, 36, come fall. Us exclusively revealed in March that Hasselbeck will not be returning as a cohost, but she has yet to confirm the news.
In addition to Behar announcing her departure from the show, Barbara Walters revealed in May that she plans to retire in summer 2014.
