Even though Joy Behar has announced she’ll be leaving The View, the execs over at ABC still have until August to search for her replacement!

Now that Barbara Walters cleared up that Elisabeth Hasselbeck is indeed staying on the show, it sounds like they are currently looking for another conservative to be on her side!

And not just any conservative, but a conservative Latina at that!

One of Joy’s potential replacements include Rachel Campos-Duffy, a strict Catholic and Republican, who has six kids and was on the Real World: San Francisco!

She’s also married to a Republican congressman and tried out for the show back in 1999!

Another name that’s popped up has been Jaci Velasquez, who is 33 and married with two kids, along with her own radio show!

As for our favorite person possibly in the running??? Gloria Estefan! We would LOVE to see her on the show!

However, it sounds like they won’t be filling Joy’s spot just yet, as an insider stated:

'We have a few months until Joy leaves and whoever joins has to add something new and fresh to the show. They have to fit in, but also be prepared to be combative.”

So far, ABC hasn’t commented on her potential replacements, but we think the panel definitely needs to add some Latina into the mix!

Take a look at a few of our other choices HERE!!!

    If it's Rachel, I won't watch. Had enough of her during The Real World.

    Barbara Walters and The View have run its couse. She should retire and stop trying to be so PC, the show needs another conservative spouting off like a hole in the head.

    That panel NEEDS a comedienne. I was hoping for Roseanne Barr myself.

    Lisa Lampanelli would be perfect…

    Re: Bonnie – Yes, I could also see Lisa livening things up with some zinger one-liners like Joy does. Without the live one liners, that show can really snore. It absolutely needs witty repartee with spontaneity, or it loses its edge and its point.
