Wow!! Should we all have seen this coming all along?!
However, could they have been plotting the 22-year-old's sudden 1D exodus for a while??

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