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!"
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!
