Barbara Walters, Look No Further

Kris Jenner Talk Show
The Kardashian mom's daytime talker will get a test run.
There’s a shakeup going down on ABC’s The View — no matter which way you spin it.

Last week, founding co-host Joy Behar announced that she’s leaving the daytime talk show at the end of the current season. Soon after that, reports spread that Elisabeth Hasselbeck would also be leaving.

That prompted show doyenne, Barbara Walters, to release a statement on Monday denying that the former Survivor contender isn’t leaving.

“There is a particularly false story that keeps getting picked up about Elisabeth’s departure,” she said.

“The truth is we love Elisabeth,” Walters continued. “I like her personally and she’s just a wonderful person — but beyond that, we value and appreciate her point-of-view … We have no plans for Elisabeth to leave the show.”

Well, it’s never too early to start interviewing for replacements. And if you ask us, (surprise!) the sky’s the limit.

Barbara, allow Celebuzz to expand your mind with our dream casting suggestions for the inevitable open seats at The View table.

From Erin Anderson to American treasure Betty White, flip through the gallery to see who we dreamed up. By the way, we even threw a few men into the mix. It’s our dream, right?
