Stylist Stacy London is being eyed to join “The View” as a member of its upcoming regular rotation of contributors, an individual with knowledge told TheWrap.
Molly Sims is a frontrunner for another spot in the Season 19 stable. Michelle Collins was also being considered, until she was hired as a permanent co-host on Wednesday, which was exclusively reported by TheWrap.
Rosie Perez recently announced that she was leaving the show after this season, so Collins essentially replaces her. Should resident Republican Nicolle Wallace leave too after just one season — a real possibility at this point — there will be another opening. Wallace’s talks for next season are still in their infancy, according to an ABC insider.
Whoopi Goldberg and Raven-Symone will both be back next season, joined now by Collins and at least one rotating chair.
Guest co-hosts have been a familiar sight on “The View” since Rosie O’Donnell exited the show in February — just five months after returning as part of a new slate four hosts team that also included Perez, Wallace, and returning moderator Goldberg.
That lineup was introduced following the departures of co-creator Barbara Walters and two of her fellow co-hosts, Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy.
