Mario Cantone Is A Front Runner For A Seat At The View?!

Could Babs be letting a boy join her talk show table?!

The rumor mill, and View co-hosts, past and present, say…YES!

The show is still looking for Joy Behar's replacement, and they might have found what they're looking for in funny man and Sex and the City star, Mario Cantone!

Former Viewer Meredith Viera revealed:

"If a man were to step in, it would be Mario. He was a huge supporter of the show long ago when we were desperate for support. And he may have a vagina for all I know!"

LOLz!!

And active co-host, Sherri Shepherd, totes agrees:

"He fits the bill of being bitchy and a woman! Whoever takes Joy's place has to be completely fearless — when I say fearless, I mean you cannot be afraid to speak up. They've got to be ballsy, they've got to be brassy, they've got to be funny and I don't know who fits that bill."

We think Mario would be a superbly funny choice and a nice change of pace for the morning gabfest!

After all, he's featured on the show all the time, and has been making people laugh forevs!

We are so Team Cantone!

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! If he joins, I'll never watch again. He is just too much.



  2. 2

    This guy gives me a headache…I guess I'll stop watching

    Oh GOD no, every day will be something about how he's gay, and a great funny guy. A bouncy effeminate pet to have around.
    no thanks.
    A guest host? cool
    perm? No way

    Jeezus! I can't stand him either. Looks like I still won't be watching the view. What the heck does he have to add to a woman's viewpoint?

    hahah, I'm gonna change up the game and say YEESSSSSSSSS! The view is so boring; if he was on it, I'd actually watch.

    No. A gay man does not equal a woman, no matter how effeminate he may be or how often he says 'girl' and sympathetically nods his head. (no idea if he is or does that) No matter how feminine he may come across, he's still a man with a man's life experience. It's a panel of women. He could be a guest host, sure, but not permanently cast. I don't know anything about the guy so it's nothing against him at all.

    Re: shaygirl1309 – I think they did that with Rosie O'Donnell. She is just human cancer!

    Perez aren't you offended that Meredith suggested that gay men probably have vaginas?

    Mario is the best of both worlds - when it requires him to be a host to guests, he's more laid back, but at the hosts' desk - he's hilarious. I've always been a fan. The View is becoming a Sheri show and is a little tiring - not so funny and she's always talking about sex and random thoughts on it - BORING. She really has issues. Barb needs to retire NOW. Whoopi is not happy when Barb is there - the old lady interrupts every 2 seconds. Whoopi can no longer control her irritations. She's not about gossip. Mario will add a little life to an incredibly boring show.

    He was funny on "Sex and the City" but on "The View" he is sooooooooooo annoying!!!!
    If he joins it will be yet one more reason not to watch this sinking ship.

    BEING GAY MYSELF, I THINK HAVING A "TOO GAY CO HOST" IS NOT A GOOD IDEA. GAY MAN ARE NOT WOMEN, THEY ARE JUST MEN WHO LOVE MEN. JUST BECAUSE YOU ARE GAY, IT DOESNT MEEN YOU SHOULD ACT LIKE A WOMAN. THAT ANNOYS PEOPLE, AND WE SHOULD RESPECT STRAIGHT PEOPLE'S FEELINGS AS WELL. ITS A DAYTIME TALK SHOW , NOT A CABLE GAY TV
