Brooke ShieldsBrooke Shields is in talks to join The View.

The 47-year-old Blue Lagoon actress has reportedly been approached by ABC to join the US morning chat show's panel after current host Joy Behar recently announced she is leaving the popular series after 16 seasons and amid rumors Elizabeth Hasselbeck's contract has not been renewed.

According to gossip website showbiz411.com, Barbara Walters, who is at the helm of the series, thinks that Brooke would be a great addition and is eager for her to take over one of the vacant spots. Sources said Barbara really wants her because the actress has two children, is a Princeton graduate and "very articulate," but also has great connections in Hollywood.

The brunette beauty, who previously acted as a guest host, is said to be in final negotiations to join the show next season alongside Whoopi Goldberg, Sherri Shepherd, and Barbara.

VIDEO: Teary Hasselbeck Apologizes to DWTS’ Erin Andrews

UPDATE: Erin Andrews says she’s never received that so-called apology from Hasselbeck.

Seeing Elisabeth Hasselbeck cry is something we’re all used to by now. (Remember that heated debate with Whoopi Goldberg on the use of the “N-word”?) But it’s not often that we see The View co-host cry over something she did.

While discussing the latest Dancing with the Stars events yesterday, the outspoken conservative felt the need to speak out about contestant Erin Andrews’ ballroom wardrobe. Elisabeth - who was for some reason shocked by the amount of skin the contestant had been showing lately (does she not watch the show on a regular basis?) - thought it would be appropriate to bring up the ESPN reporter’s stalking scandal.

“I mean, in some way if I’m [Michael David Barrett], I’m like, ‘Man! I just could’ve waited 12 weeks and seen this — a little bit less — without the prison time!’” Hasselbeck joked.

“What more do you want?” - Sherri Shepherd questioning

Elizabeth Hasselbeck

the Republicans about the health care reform bill.

Whether you’re for or against it, the HCR bill passed last night by the House probably has you talking. Well, at the very least, it has the ladies of fired up.

Although this morning’s discussion initially focused on the shameful actions some people took during yesterday’s proceedings, today’s hot topic took a heated turn when referenced those who were allegedly “bribed, bullied, and shut out” because they didn’t want to vote “Yes.”

I can only hear Kristen Wiig saying this phrase right now: “Just let me make my point - it’d be easy!”

The View cast

Daytime talk show has become the No Excuses jeans of the new millenium. You remember No Excuses jeans, right? No Excuses Sportswear spent the late 80’s and early 90’s capitalizing on infamous media stories by using the women involved in those stories to model their cheesy blue jeans. Donna Rice (disgraced Presidential Candidate Gary Hart’s “Monkey Business” lap mate) and Marla Maples (the reason for Donald and Ivana Trump’s divorce) are just a couple of the flash-in-the-pan media darlings who squeezed into a pair of No Excuses for a quick buck and some extra noteriety.

Watch Shepherd’s Fight with Hasselbeck on The View

Although was once known Elisabeth Hasselbeck’s conservative ally, the comedienne has been started to drift further away from her co-host politically.

On today’s episode of , the ladies questioned whether certain events should be dredged up in the presidential campaigns. Needless to say - they had very different opinions on the matter. (Things start really heating up around the 3:45 mark.)

McCain Also Caught Talking About Lipstick on Pigs

Barack ObamaHaven’t heard the latest controversy about pigs wearing lipstick? Well, then you haven’t been watching the news.

Today, is being fired upon from John McCain’s camp about comments he made during a speech yesterday. When talking about his opponent’s plan for change, the Democratic candidate chose to use this colorful analogy: “You can put lipstick on a pig, it’s still a pig.”

And while that phrase has been used many times before, McCain supporters felt Barack’s “sexist” comment was aimed directly toward (the “Pitbull with Lipstick”). Unfortunately, the Republicans also failed to realize that their own candidate had used that same analogy about a certain female contender last year.

In today’s episode of The View, the ladies of the table talked about the two different soundbites. (You can watch both of them here.) If you listen closely, you might also hear Elisabeth Hasselbeck defend Barack Obama…

Whoopi Goldberg Makes Elisabeth Hasselbeck Cry

Regardless of whether you agree with the topic at hand, it’s always a great day on when a co-host ends up crying. It’s even better day when Elisabeth Hasselbeck is the one doing it.

On today’s show, things became quite tense between Elisabeth and during a discussion about the “N” word:

This Week on TV (5/5-5/11)

CSI Miami

(You can view TV Envy’s Post-Strike Television Schedule here.)


MONDAY (5/5)
  • Two and a Half Men (CBS, 9:00):  (The script was written by scribes.) “George Eads (CSI) has a cameo in which a CSI team investigates a death at Charlie’s house.”  I know Charlie wanted to stop Denise’s reality show, but this is quite a sweeps stunt.
  • House (FOX, 9pm):  “House believes that an actor (Jason Lewis) on his favorite soap is seriously ill after observing his symptoms on television, so he decides to intervene.”  If I had known something like that would work, I would have kidnapped Smith Jerrod a long time ago.
  • Samantha Who? (ABC, 9:30pm):  “Sam’s affair with Todd continues while he’s still seeing a clueless Chloe.”  I’m sorry—why doesn’t Sam just kick her out of her apartment again?  She does own the thing, doesn’t she?
  • CSI: Miami (CBS, 10pm):  “Alexx is stunned when her son is the prime suspect in a murder investigation, and any help she offers could prove costly.”  Buh-bye, Khandi!
