Elisabeth Hasselbeck leaving 'The View': Will she be replaced by Brooke Shields?
Now, Showbiz411 reports that Hasselbeck may be replaced by model and actress Brooke Shields. Shields is a favorite of "The View" matriarch Barbara Walters, who considers her to be very articulate. 47-year-old Shields is a Princeton graduate, a mother, and a prominent figure in Hollywood -- all pluses when it comes to hosting a morning show.
Rumor has it that because Joy Behar is exiting the show too, to work on her standup routine, producers will look for another host as well. They're going to skew younger, looking for a host in her 30s -- potentially someone with a journalism background.
