It appears that that The View will soon be looking for another replacement. Several people have told me that when Jenny McCarthy's current contract finishes it will not be renewed. Apparently not only is she not particularly liked by the crew and other hosts but she is not liked at all by the viewing public and there is talk that if the numbers don't increase during sweeps that her contract might just be bought out and someone brought in to replace her. Want to know the really crazy thing? One of the main factors for deciding when she goes is when Bethenny Frankel's show gets canceled because the producers of The View think she would be a great fit for their show even though she does not do well on her own.
I think it would be a terrible idea for one big reason. Bethenny's ego. Bethenny doesn't want to be going from being the star of her very own show to one of a group who barely can get a word in and doesn't stick out. She would try and dominate the show and that isn't going to make her appeal to viewers.
