My View on 'The View'

Bye-bye, Elisabeth. Hello, Grandma Lee?

Posted:

Elisabeth Hasselbeck barely had time to take the Mitt Romney posters (and Kathy Griffin dartboard) off her dressing room walls and remove her egg whites and energy bars out of the "The View" lunchroom before Jenny McCarthy started moving in.

With a Bankers Box full of anti-vaccine brochures, Razzie Awards and Gas-X, McCarthy is already making herself at home, which is great for maintaining the show's momentum. But I am slightly disappointed that no local women were even considered for the gig. Northeast Florida is full of sassy, opinionated women, many of whom have experience on TV and public speaking.

Take, for example, Grandma Lee: how entertaining would it be to watch the foul-mouthed, chain-smoking 79-year-old comic try and make it to the first commercial break without suffering nicotine withdrawals or dropping an "F" bomb—or 10? 

Check out all of my picks in the photo gallery above.
