After learning Rosie O’Donnell was to leave the series for the second time, fans of ‘The View‘ now face reports that suggest she is to be replaced by the controversial Monica Lewinsky.
Surprising news below…
ABC News has invited Monica Lewinsky to The View as a guest, to talk about her “anti-bullying campaign,” naturally leading to speculation she might replace Rosie O’Donnell as one of the show panelists, or at least that show creator Barbara Waltersis trying to talk ABC News brass into the merits of the hire.
Lewinsky would pose certain challenges, given that The View these days is produced by ABC News which presumably would want access to expected Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton during the next election cycle. Lewinsky on staff might make that tougher.
At the very least, assume ABC News will look closely at thestats when Lewinsky pays a call to The View.Timing is uncertain; original hopes of having her stop by to coincide with her last month’s TED talk did not pan out and no new date has been set, insiders say.
Lewinsky rose to fame when it emerged that she had been engaged in an affair with then President of the United States Bill Clinton, pulling in 49 million viewers when she discussed the affair in an interview with Walters’ ’20/20.’
