'The View'

Tappin' Latin Talent for Co-Host

Lauren Sanchez to Guest

EXCLUSIVE

"The View" producers will give potential replacement co-host Lauren Sanchez her shot at one of the coveted seats when she sits in for Wednesday's episode.

TMZ has learned Sanchez got the call last week, and was told she would be co-hosting with Whoopi Goldberg, Jenny McCarthy and Sherri Shepherd.

Our 'View' sources tell us producers will be watching for Sanchez's "chemistry" with Whoopi -- which makes sense since she's the only one who will be back next season.

As TMZ first told you ... producers are on the hunt for 2 new co-hosts -- one conservative and one Latina. Sanchez -- a former news anchor and 'Extra' host -- was nearly hired in 2000, but they went with Lisa Ling instead.

As Barbara Walters herself put it, Lauren was "thiiis close" to getting the gig back then.

I think S.E. Cupp gets the conservative chair.

Let's see if she can get a word in edgewise. When Ana Belaval from WGN News in Chicago was guest hosting, Jenny and Sherri talked over her and Whoopi mispronounced her name several times. Those ladies were so RUDE to Ana. Good luck to her! We will keep our Ana. We love our Ana.

Good choice! I used to watch Lauren Sanchez on UPN News. She has beauty and a fine body!

If today's program is any indication --- forced "chemistry" is the worst kind. They yappy all over each other in the quest to have their 10 seconds of fame. Kill off Sherri and Jenni -- please!

The View doesn't need witchy, they need smart, well spoken women from a variety of backgrounds. Don't pidgeonhole one from the other.

Hmm, Lauren Sanchez may be attractive enough, but I think she'd be out of her league trying to keep up with Whoopi, as well as Rosie.

Joy Behar was always the person I liked on the show. I would watch if she came back.

If I was Lauren, I wouldn't be interested after not being 'good enough' the first time.
