'The View'

New Host Wishlist ...

A Conservative and a Latina

0627-Huntsman-Hoover-Mystery-THE-VIEW-with-logo-01
Producers on "The View" have targeted two types of hosts they are looking to fill their empty positions ... and let's just say if you speak a little Spanish ... you could be in luck. 

Sources involved in the search tell TMZ ... View honchos are on the hunt for a Latina  --  which would be a first for the show.  Lauren Sanchez almost got the gig back in the day when Debbie Matenopoulos got fired, but Lisa Ling snagged the gig.

We're also told the show is going old school by looking for "a conservative female with a strong, smart point of view."  Our sources say they have their eyes on Margaret Hoover and Abby Huntsman, who is guest hosting on Tuesday.

Our sources say Huntsman, who is the daughter of former Utah governor Jon Huntsman, Jr., has always considered "The View" a prime gig ... but right now it would take a lot to get her to leave her job at MSNBC.

my prediction is that the view will never allow a conservative point-of-view again. Whoopi won't have it.

So they're looking for low ratings again, no one wants to be lectured about politics by these dumb broads in the morning

Well if they are going to keep doing it, they need a conservative. And I'm a liberal. Nothing is more boring then watching a bunch of people agree. Oh and make sure it is a smart conservative. Not a fox news talking point conservative.

They need to find a conservative with a brain. They seem hard to come by.

Wait, didn't they audition Rachel from "Real world San Fran"? She is married to a right wing congressman. Latina and a righty. Not terribly interesting person, but fits the criteria.

Get RID of Whoopi, she adds NOTHING to the panel!
Bring Back Meredith Vieira*
Hire Roseanne Barr*
Hire a Latina -Judge Marilyn Milian, from The People's Court*
Hire Margaret Hoover*
Hire Rosie O'Donnell

They should consider Jennifer Lopez's sister, Lynda Lopez, who is a journalist.

For the conservative, I'd prefer Meghan Mccain.

Huntsman works at MSNBC? Then she isn't conservative. No conservative could stomach that radical far left looney bin. And MSNBC wouldn't allow it. The View sucks. It's just a bunch of radical left wing shrill old women blabbing ... and they love to hear themselves blab. Total waste of time.
