Did you watch the debut of I Am Cait on E!? I’ve never watched an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians or any of their multiple spinoffs, but I did tune in last night. It appears that millions did as well. Though the official numbers won’t be released until Tuesday, early estimates project roughly 3 million watched.

A few of those who checked it out were the ladies of The View. During the Hot Topics segment, Raven-Symone shared her thoughts on Caitlyn Jenner and her new role as a LGBT community leader. The outspoken co-host thinks what Jenner is doing for the transgender community is ‘wonderful‘ but feels she’s moving ‘too fast.’

Watch Raven explain her stance more below. This is exactly why producers hired her. The former Disney star will no doubt court controversy with her statements. When Candice Cameron-Bure joins, it’s going to be fireworks show everyday.

The View Reportedly Finds Two New Panelists

Season 18 of The View was a rebuilding one. The veteran daytime chatfest moved into a new studio and overhauled the panel, leaving Whoopi Goldberg as the sole returnee. Fast forward to Season 19, and once again the Ghost actress is the last woman standing. Rosie Perez, Rosie O’Donnell and Nicole Wallace just didn’t work out.

The View has already announced Michelle Collins and Ravyen-Symone as permanent co-panelists moving forward. It appears producers have found two more women to usher in yet another new era for the once watercooler show.

Not surprisingly, Candace Cameron Bure is poised to become one of the new co-hosts. She easily fills the resident conservative SLASH religious spot. She’s guest hosted a handful of times and already butted heads with Raven. Did you see their heated debate about the bakery that wouldn’t bake a wedding cake for a lesbian couple? Talk about tense. These two will undoubtedly bring plenty of fireworks with their opposing viewpoints.

Rosie Perez Exiting The View

Another Rosie has bit the dust. Just six months after joining the panel, Rosie Perez is leaving The View. The White Man Can’t Jump actress is the second panelist to leave this season, following in Rosie O’Donnell’s footsteps.

O’Donnell and Perez were added, along with Nicole Wallace, as part of a major overhaul of the long-running daytime show this year. It appears more huge changes are in store for Season 19. Raven-Symoné was recently hired as a permanent host and it is expected frequent stand-in, comedian Michelle Collins, will be added as well.

Executive Producer Bill Wolff broke the news today in an email sent out to the staff. Read it below.

A few weeks ago, rumors surfaced Rosie Perez was leaving The View. As it turns out, it was a different Rosie jumping ship. Over the weekend, it was revealed that O’Donnell was once again leaving the ABC daytime chatfest after a brief return.

Viewers who tuned in to Monday’s episode hoping to hear the truth from the proverbial horse’s mouth were sadly disappointed. There was nary a mention of it on the show. The 52-year-old took to YouTube to reveal the exact reasons.

Pretty much, it’s a combination of splitting with her wife Michelle Rounds and taking care of her health after surviving a major heart attack years ago. Rosie’s final episode (until she returns again) airs this Friday. Check out her YouTube clip below.

Sharon Osbourne Trashes The View

In: Donovan, TV Shows

Sometimes I like the Osbourne family and then one of them pulls a stunt like this and… you know.

When Lady Gaga tried to squash her feud with Kelly Osbourne by giving a peace offering in the form of a birthday cake via Sharon, Kelly tweeted a few harsh words accusing Gaga of being disingenuous. I thought it was completely rude and ungracious for Kelly not to accept Gaga’s apology.

They say “sorry” is the hardest word to say, so when anyone offers an apology, I try to accept it and move on. Sharon felt the same way and recently commented on her daughter’s former feud by saying, “You know what, life is way too short.” Based on her behavior on The Arsenio Hall Show, it looks life’s not too short to start a feud.

During an interview with her The Talk co-hosts, Sharon had a few not so choice words regarding the ladies of The View. It all began when Hall asked the ladies what the difference between the two shows were. Julie Chen responded politely by stating their show doesn’t cover politics. Osbourne gulped down her red solo cup and interrupted, “Cut to the chase. Stop being polite. Cut to the f***ing chase.” She continued, “This is the situation. Barbara, idolize her, divine, she is superhuman, I love, but the rest can go f*** themselves.”

I agree that The Talk is better than The View currently but have some class girl. If it wasn’t for The View, I’m sure you guys wouldn’t be around. In addition, I think Sharon is the weakest link on the panel. She can go in my opinion. Watch her rant below.

The dawn of a new era for The View is here. Gone are Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Joy Behar. Stepping in to join the three ring circus is blond funny lady Jenny McCarthy. ABC just released the first promo pics for the daytime talk show’s upcoming 17th season featuring its new addition. Judging by first impression, it appears she fits in just perfectly.

Already, she’s fooling around with Sherri Shepherd and poking fun at Barbara Walters. Why there isn’t a photo of Whoopi with Jenny is interesting? Are they already not getting along? Probably not the case, but it is interesting why a promo photo with just the two of them is missing. McCarthy makes her debut as an official host on September 9. Check out the promo photos below.

Jenny McCarthy Officially Joins The View

In: Donovan, TV Shows

Just days after Elisabeth Hasselbeck announced her departure on The View, we already have a new panelist. Jenny McCarthy is officially on board for the ABC talk show’s 17th season. However, she’s not Hasselbeck’s replacement but rather taking Joy Behar’s seat when her contract expires in August.

“We are delighted that Jenny will be joining us as a permanent co-host on ‘The View’ starting in September,” Barbara Walters says in a statement. “Jenny brings us intelligence as well as warmth and humor. She can be serious and outrageous. She has connected with our audience and offers a fresh point of view. Jenny will be a great addition to the show as we usher in an exciting new chapter for ‘The View.'”

What this bodes for McCarthy’s weekly talk show on VH1 is anyone’s guess. I’m thinking fans of the chatfest probably shouldn’t hold their breath for a second season. Prior to joining The View, Jenny has appeared on the show as a guest and fill-in host over a dozen times. I don’t expect any first day jitters on September 9 when she officially joins the cast.

McCarthy’s statement after the jump

After months of speculation, it’s official. Elisabeth Hasselbeck is leaving her spot on The View after ten years. Nine years too long if you ask me. With Joy Behar announcing her departure back in March and Barbara Walters’ upcoming retirement, the long-running talk show will have a major facelift come September. Personally, I think it’s long overdue. With the ABC show dipping in ratings and CBS’ The Talk rising, something major needed to be done.

“We have had 10 wonderful years with Elisabeth, and she will now be swimming in new waters,” said Barbara Walters. “We will miss her and wish her everything good.”

If you’re in the minority and love Elisabeth, you only have one more day to enjoy her on The View. Wednesday, July 10 is her last day. Pretty quick deal if you ask me. IMHO, I think Hasselbeck was always on her way out despite Walters’ denial.

To save face, I think all parties involved waited til Hasselbeck secured a new job before announcing her departure. Speaking of her new gig, she’ll head over to FOX News and join the channel’s morning show, FOX & Friends. She takes over Gretchen Carlson who is getting her own afternoon show on the network.

“Elisabeth’s warm and engaging personality made her a star on The View,” said FOX News chairman and CEO Roger Ailes. “She has proven to be an excellent conversationalist, and I am certain she will make a great addition to our already successful morning franchise.”
