In a year that has already seen a LOT of shakeups, it sounds like The View might be seeing even MORE changes in the near future!!
With lots of faces coming and going, ratings have taken a significant hit for the daytime talk show, and sources are saying that ABC is trying to stop the bleeding with a secret plan to bring in even MORE new faces!
Or should we say old faces!
According to insiders, ABC execs have contacted former hosts Joy Behar and Sherri Shepherd about the prospect of returning the show and bring back some much needed energy!
But the story doesn't quite stop there, as sources are also saying that Rosie O'Donnell is being completely left out of the loop!

That's right! The honeymoon period is OFFICIALLY over, according to these sources, as the initial boost in ratings is LONG gone and people are reportedly fed up with her diva-ish behavior!
It's not really too surprising as Rosie has already clashed with Whoopi Goldberg and is apparently known to shoot down ANY idea that isn't hers!
It's pretty clear that ABC feels as though The View has lost some fun energy that Joy and Sherri brought to the show, and they seem to think bringing them back would be a simple fix!
We guess we'll just have to wait and see if their plan works and what it all means for Rosie!
