Goldberg and Shepherd join "The View"

whoopi-view.jpgAfter months of speculation about who would join Barbara Walters and her crew on "The View," ABC recently announced two new additions. Whoopi Goldberg joined the show this week as the new moderator, a spot once filled by Meredith Vieira. Comedian Sherri Shepherd, who has guest hosted several times, will occupy the fifth seat. The final slot has been in flux ever since Star Jones Reynolds' dramatic departure last year over accusations that her wedding alienated viewers. Walters will announce Shepherd's addition next week.

Over the last few years, the show has developed into one of the most talked about daytime shows on television. The real drama began once Jones Reynolds left the show and ABC announced her successor- Rosie O'Donnell. Once O'Donnell was onboard, she succeeded in provoking a number of people with her comments, most notably Donald Trump. It seems now, only two days into their new lineup, Goldberg is keeping the water cooler talk alive and sparking controversies of her own. During a conversation about Michael Vick, Goldberg argued with fellow co-host Joy Behar about the issue of dogfighting. Looks like Whoopi will fit in just fine. --Chris Sardelli
