Rosie O’Donnell is the the new co-host on “The View”

Rosie O’Donnell will take over Meredith Vieira’s spot on “The View.” Other women who were said to be in the running for the position were Connie Chung, Patricia Heaton and Soledad O’Brien.

Dubbed “The Queen of Nice” when her syndicated talk show went on the air in 1996 and became an instant hit, O’Donnell won six Daytime Emmy Awards in six years as best talk-show host. She left the show to help raise four children with her partner, Kelli Carpenter O’Donnell.

This could be interesting, but we’re in Europe and have to rely on second-hand reports and the occasional YouTube video. That’s not much of a sacrifice when it comes to this show, which we’ve never watched an entire episode of.

Rosie certainly had a fun talkshow in her time, she’s liberal enough and she knows just about everything about pop culture. She’s not a bad choice.

Rosie has some nice stories about hurricane survivors she’s met posted on her blog, written in her unique poetic way.
