So, what do YOU think about firing Josh from the show?

We all knew there were problems on the show but THIS is ridiculous!
Over the past few years, The View has made quite a few headlines but not necessarily for all the right reasons. In a recent piece by Vanity Fair, they recapped some of The View's problems with production, and seemingly hung out some of their dirty laundry to dry!
Many people are familiar with Rosie O'Donnell's feud with Elizabeth Hasselbeck as well as problems with the show's crew, one instance with a senior producer escalated to the point where the the women had to be separated. But the Vanity piece also reveals that at one point Rosie was being considered for her own talk-show on ABC up until she made the comments:
"In America, we are fed propaganda and if you want to know what's happening in the world, go outside of the U.S. media because it's owned by four corporations. One of them is this [Disney/ABC]."
As you can OBVIOUSLY guess, her home network, ABC, was none too pleased with these remarks and the supporters of the idea reportedly backed off.
Along the same lines of tensions with execs, Whoopi Goldberg reportedly
On Tuesday and Wednesday, Whoopi Goldberg was noticeably absent from the View as she left to be with her dying brother, Clyde K. Johnson.
Reportedly, the Oscar winner rushed to California on Monday to be at 65-years-old's side before he passed of a brain aneurysm. The star has yet to confirm her brother's death.
Her family at The View noted the beloved host's absence as they took to Twitter and shared:
It's said that the siblings were incredibly close — as Clyde served as the comedienne's driver for years. Tragic!
What must be the hardest part for Whoopi is that this loss comes a few years after the passing of her mother.
On her mother's death, the TV personality stated:
"And so, I'm not sad because she had a great time… I think I'm just sad sometimes because I think who will love me the way that she did? But I realized that my brother and I have each other so we're OK."
Our hearts are with Whoopi and her family and we wish her the best during this trying time.

This news is quite raven.
Following her guest hosting gig back in March, it looks like Raven-Symoné is up for a more permanent gig on The View.
That's because we're hearing that ABC is very intent on getting the Disney star to join the panel next to Whoopi Goldberg, Rosie Perez, and Nicolle Wallace. And they're trying to make it happen before their May 12th upfronts in New York!
We're totally into this news, because during her short time on the show, the 29-year-old managed to stay charismatic while unafraid to share her slightly controversial thoughts on race and sexuality.
We think Raven would be a perfect fit for the show, especially because we're not getting very much from Rosie and Nicolle; it's pretty much just Whoopi's show at the moment.
Would U tune into The View if Raven was a permanent host??

For their seventh annual Power Of Women issue, Variety brought out the big guns!
The annual special honors New York women who use their fame, fortune, and force of will to shine a light on causes that need our help.
Kim Kardashian West was honored for her continued support for Children's Hospital Los Angeles. She not only donates time to visit patients, she also donates proceeds from her eBay auctions to the nonprofit. It's a great cause, but she's not even from New York! LOLz! Oh well!
Meanwhile Lena Dunham recently dove headfirst into the horrors of sex trafficking as she works to support Gems, an organization devoted to helping victims of commercial sexual exploitation.
Whoopi Goldberg is an honorary chair at Figure Skating in Harlem, Rachel Weisz helps kids get into college with Opportunity Network, and Glenn Close founded the nonprofit Bring Change 2 Mind to raise awareness of mental illness.
These women's stories are as powerful as they are! Ch-ch-check out all their Variety covers (above) and find out more about their charitable efforts HERE.
We simply say "Brava!"

Whoopi just opened a can of whoop-ass!
With Giuliana Rancic receiving a ton of hate for her hurtful comments on Fashion Police and Zendaya raking in a lot of support for her mature response, it's no surprise that the ladies of The View decided to join the conversation.
While all of the panel had good points on the matter, Whoopi Goldberg had the strongest feelings about the whole "patchouli oil" and "weed" stereotyping, mostly on account that she herself has dreads!
Before Fifty Shades of Grey was a huge box office hit, it was still just a bunch of hungry actors ready to rip each others clothes off in the name of art.
General Hospital star Ryan Peavey was one of the actors in the running for the role of Christian Grey, and before he lost out to Charlie Hunnam, and later Jamie Dornan, he went quite far.
And by that, we mean he went far with the auditioning actresses!
Obviously in a movie that's fully one fifth sex scenes, you have to know how the actors look getting it on, but DAYUM these auditions sound scandalous!
Get the whole picture (below)!
