Roseanne -- The New Rosie?

4/30/2007 8:39 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Roseanne BarrRoseanne Barr is being touted as the leading loudmouth to replace Rosie O'Donnell on "The View," according to sources this morning.

With Rosie on her way out in just a couple months, the brassy Barr has emerged as the candidate to beat, says the New York Post, though Joan Rivers, Whoopi Goldberg, Kathie Lee Gifford, and Connie Chung are also in the running. With Rosie leaving, says an ABC source, "they're missing strong personalities, and that's what they're going to need if they want to keep it going."

Indeed, as FOX News reports, Elisabeth Hasselbeck will be announcing today that she's about three months pregnant, so the peppy lightning-rod will also be off on leave sometime Roseanne Barr gallery: click to launch photosnext fall, leaving just Babwa and Joy Behar to do the talking. Barr's rep said she hadn't been approached.










Anna Nicole Speaks from the Grave


Anna Nicole Smit photosA trove of tapes in which Anna Nicole Smith talks about everything from her sex life with J. Howard Marshall to her troubled childhood is being shopped – in book form – and could strip away much of the mystique about the late bombshell's life.

Writer Joyce Wagner is shopping a tell-all tome based on hours of never-printed interviews, say Rush & Molloy, that took place in 1996 when Anna was bankrupt and just out of rehab. In the talks, she details some difficult times with her mother, Virgie Arthur, including allegations of abuse. (Arthur's lawyer didn't return the News' calls.)

Meanwhile, on a happier note, Smith talks about physical intimacy with her then-octogenarian husband J. Howard Marshall, saying that "he could not exactly satisfy me," but that he "never looked down at me."

Britney Tells All – to Allure?


She may be planning a tell-all bio, but first Britney Spears may be talking to Allure magazine about everything that's been going on in her life. According to Page Six, Vanity Fair is also vying for the big get, which will probably be on newsstands sometime around November, when she's due to drop her new album. Meanwhile, on the comeback trail, Britney's been planning some secret gigs in Hollywood, though she just cancelled on one last week.

TMZ is getting a little obvsious....all you have are crappy photo's of Brit right? Yeah, I'm sure this attention grabbing schmo hasn't stopped to pose right? Cut the women a break and let's see some real photography. Oh, yeah....it's be nice if you'd give us some real celeb news too - - but I guess that would be expecting too much. The quality of the site is suffering.

I love Rosanna Barr. She will compliment the cast well.

Now, if only we can get rid of Elisabeth FOR GOOD when she goes out on her maternity leave. That girl is dumber than a box of rocks.

Connie Chung would be a nice choice if not for her husband. She needs to distance herself from him. That is "Class" vs. "Sleaze". Elisabeth is not strong enough person to carry her part on the show. Roseanne is too much like Rosie O'D. Too much mouth and does not want to share the spotlight with the other women. Please, Please do not put Kathie Lee on there. Now if they could just get rid of Kelly Ripa, morning TV might just be what someone would watch. Thank God that Katie Couric is on at nite so that clears up the morning a bit.

I will never watch the View ever if Rosanne is on it (not that I watch it now
anyhow....)

Sorry to hear ANS will evidently have more of her private life exposed.

Britney, nothing to say but ...........yawn.

The View needs someone with a strong personality and Rosanne would be perfect. If they get Kathie Lee they might as well pack it up. The ratings would take a nosedive. Kathie and Elizabeth together?? *shudders* No thanks. I thought the idea of getting Alec Baldwin was a good one. He seems like the male version of Rosie. haha.
