In case you were, Sherri Shepherd DID watch the season premiere of The View!
The former co-host of the show dished with Wendy Williams about what she thought of the first episode without her, and she talked about her continued love of the show!
However, she did think that everyone seemed a little "nervous."
Sherri also talked about Rosie O'Donnell, her legal dramas, and her surrogate baby drama.
Ch-ch-check out the tell-all interview (above)!!!
She's changed her tune!
When the return of Rosie O'Donnell was originally announced for The View's upcoming season, a lot of people had a lot of things to say!
Including this lady! But we guess she's letting bygones be bygones these days!
Elisabeth Hasselbeck recently talked to Parade Magazine and it seems like the new Fox & Friends host is finally OK with Rosie returning to a job that Elisabeth not too long ago occupied herself.
Here's what she said:
The View premiered on Monday, and with a new group led by returning controversial co-hosts Rosie O'Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg, you can bet it got some people excited.
Between the draw of Rosie and Whoopi's polarizing opinions and the curiosity to see new co-hosts Rosie Perez and Nicolle Wallace, the audience tuned in to the roundtable!
With 3.9 million viewers, the first episode of season 18 had the highest premiere ratings in 8 years - the last time Rosie joined the show!
We guess ABC's gamble paid off!
And in case you're one of the few that didn't give the new panel a try…

The View is back!
And with that brings three new ladies to the panel!
While Rosie O'Donnell is returning after years away from the table, Whoopi Goldberg is also welcoming newbies Nicolle Wallace and Rosie Perez to get in on the fun.
And the show certainly didn't avoid the major topics of discussion. While Whoopi maintained her lead moderator seat and Rosie cozied into Barbara Walter's old seat, the ladies tackled heavy issues like domestic violence.
You might be surprised what Rosie O. said about Chris Brown. Not to mention how heartbreaking it is to hear about Rosie P.'s history with abuse.
They also kindly paid tribute to two stars we lost too soon: Robin Williams and Joan Rivers.
Oh, and Rosie O. also managed to get in a little shade sent Elisabeth Hasselbeck's way.
Ch-ch-check out the opening segment (above) and the following clips (below)!!!
It's all sweet and happy during those early days in a relationship.
And then you realize what the other person is like and it's ALL downhill!
Or at least that's what we think might just happen with these smiling View co-hosts.
The View and ABC released the first official picture of Whoopi Goldberg, Rosie O'Donnell, Rosie Perez, and Nicolle Wallace, and they couldn't look like better besties!
All the ladies are hugging up on one another in anticipation for the September 15th premiere date, but we have to wonder how long the love will last.
Rosie has been known to start fires in the past, and while she's hoping for a smooth sail this time around, a leopard can't change its spots.
But maybe she'll mesh better with these newbies! One can hope!

We didn't think The Hunger Games existed in real life!
But apparently they do, and it's called the hiring process at The View! LOLz!
While Rosie O'Donnell seemed to have an easy time securing a spot on the panel after it was announced that Jenny McCarthy and Sherri Shepherd would be leaving, the other two empty spots were up for grabs.
And people were a'grabbing!
Rosie revealed how ALL the possible co-hosts were "herded into a room" last month to compete in mock debates with Rosie and Whoopi Goldberg:
The new season of The View hasn't even started yet, and already it's getting controversial!
Rosie O'Donnell was discussing what her return means for the upcoming season, and she emphasized she was bringing the change! She said:
"My goal is to come in peace. And the contrast between what the show will be and what it was is going to be glaring."
Sounds pretty serious! Rosie says her big aim is to make the show more intelligent. But as an example, she used former co-host Sherri Shepherd! She said:
