It's absolutely no secret that ABC's The View is, once again, going through some major changes. It was confirmed a few weeks ago that Raven Symone has officially been added as a panelist for the weekday chat fest, but they still need to make more changes. Usually during the summer The View will announce a few new co-hosts for the upcoming season and this time around Molly Sims seems to be a front runner.
According to an exclusive report by Deadline, "ABC's The View has been relying heavily on guest co-hosts. I hear the show is looking to make that setup more permanent, with a stable of revolving contributors who will take turns joining the full-time panelists. I hear one of The View's frequent guest co-hosts, actress Molly Sims, is in serious contention for one of the new positions," reveals an insider.
Perhaps it's wise for them to just add a revolving panel of guest hosts, that way if someone isn't clicking they can just be rotated out of the mix. Casting has been a real problem in recent seasons, with Rosie O'Donnell only making it a few months before abruptly quitting this past February. Rosie Perez and Nicole Wallace both inked one-year contracts last fall but neither one seemed to really click and rumor has it that at least one of them won't be returning.
