Candace Cameron Bure joins ‘The View’ panel, and Joy Behar will be back too

Candace Cameron Bure

The View‘s revolving door of hosts makes it hard to keep up, especially since the show probably should have ended years ago. With Rosie O’Donnell popping in so often, the dizzying effect only heightened, but I think Rosie is done with the show for good. She certainly won’t be around next season, and Barbara Walters and ABC announced the season 19 lineup. Candace Cameron Bure and Michelle Collins are joining the show, and Joy Behar (love her) is coming back for more. So along with Whoopi Goldberg and Raven-Symone, this panel should provide some semi-entertaining arguments in the months to come.

Candace Cameron Bure has really enjoyed a career resurrection lately. She’s got Fuller House coming up on Netflix, and now The View! Poor Kirk Cameron will have to proselytize through cheesy cottage-industry movies without his sister because she’s busy now. I look forward to hearing her ramble about submissive marriages and juice cleanses. Here’s ABC’s annoucement:

It’s official! Fuller House star Candace Cameron Bure is adding another job to her plate – The View co-host. The actress is officially joining the daytime talk show’s panel, alongside returning host Joy Behar and new corresponded Paula Faris, ABC announced on Tuesday, Aug. 25.

The just-added Season 19 panelists, newbies Bure and Good Morning America Weekend co-anchor Faris, along with veteran Behar, will contribute their expertise on politics, style, food, culture, beauty, and wellness.

“As The View embarks on a remarkable 19th season, I am extremely proud to see the legacy of smart and diverse women engaging in entertaining and thought-provoking conversation continue,” Barbara Walters, creator and executive producer, said in a press release announcing the news.

Behar had this to say of her new (old) gig: “Just when I thought I was out, they pulled me back in,” the comedian said. “Plus, [my husband] Steve was getting tired of applauding every time I gave my opinion. But I’m happy to be back home. And I’m looking forward to sticking my two cents into the hot topics, especially now that Hillary [Clinton] and the Donald are in the spotlight.”

Man, I bet Kelly Osbourne is seriously upset she didn’t make the cut. I think she may have been a serious contender because people always hire her for no reason. Then she threw her red carpet tantrum last weekend. ABC has enough drama on The View without Kelly’s grumpiness. She would have been one ego too many on that show. She’d want to be the moderator, and there can be only one. But Joy is back, so that’s good news.

    Candance kinda gets on my nerves, but OMG, she is soooooooo pretty. However, The View needs to disappear…it’s beyond being resurrected.

    • funcakes says:

      More tolerable than her brother, Kirk.
      How high would their rating blow up if the show consist of Kirk, Ann Coulter,Whoopie,Rosie and Bill O’Reilly.

    • Sarah says:

      I actually like Candace. While I find her views of submissive marriage bizarre, I’ve not heard her speak about it as “You should do this.” More like, “This is what we have and it works for us.” I’m ok with that. Unlike her crazy brother….

    Will this show outlive me?

    • lucy2 says:

      It will outlive all of us. It will survive it all, like a cockroach.

    • funcakes says:

      It would be devastating for this show to represent civilization’s past. This and the Kardashians.
      More devastating is I just realized the name Kardashian is apart of my auto spell. Life is over as we know it.

      • jwoolman says:

        I know. When I admitted that same thing about my autocorrect, some kind soul tried to comfort me by saying Kardashian is in the latest autocorrect database. But I unfortunately know that I myself had to teach it how to spell Kardashian long, long ago in iOS 4 …. I also taught it how to spell Lindsay the Lindsay Lohan way. I feel so ashamed.

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        Let’s face it. Our innocence is long gone. Lol

  3. I was so done with this show, not a fan of Raven and annoyed Nicolle and Perez are off. But, I love me some Joy Behar and she will be the only reason I watch this fall. I like Candace as a person, I’ll just have to see what she’s like on a day-to-day basis as a talk show host.

  4. Nev says:

    Love Joy.

  5. Tilly says:

    Not a good choice in my view (‘xcuse the pun). She seems like such an airhead whose 15 minutes shoud’ve been up a loooong time ago. She reminds me of Melissa Joan Hart.

    I got all excited thinking Michelle Collins the English actress was joining the panel but no, it’s some comedian woman 🙁 Michelle Collins the actress would’ve livened things up a lot!

    This show has definitely had its day. Maybe they should mix it up and get some males on board … someone like Terence jenkins would be amazing. And Alicia Quarles from E! too … now that they’re on their way out the E! door, they could be interested …

  6. Lisa says:

    Well, pin a rose on your nose.

  7. Peanutbuttr says:

    Has anyone found Valeri Bure on Ashley Madison?

  8. My Two Cents says:

    This show was over and done a long time ago. I used to watch regularly but never watch Amy more regardless of who is on. The concept is just wore out.

  9. littlemissnaughty says:

    What are her qualifications exactly?

    • FingerBinger says:

      She’s a conservative christian that might say something controversial.

    • perplexed says:

      What are any of their qualifications?

      I wonder if she’ll turn out to be like Elizabeth Hasselbeck?

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      She has a blog about Christianity and motherhood and her clothes. My cousin reposts her stuff on FB a lot. She’s not a Duggar by any means, but too goody goody for my taste.

  10. Tacos and TV says:

    If you’re in the audience this season bring a book and a bottle of valium

  11. Reece says:

    Beating a dead horse in perpetuity.

  12. Wellsie says:

    I am surprised Joy would want to get involved with this mess again. I love her though. Hope the $$$ is amazing.

    • Esteph says:

      The $ has to be amazing! I mean didn’t she leave originally so she could spend more time with her grandbaby and her family?
      Either way, all the ladies get on my nerve, and I find myself not watching the show that much anymore, but I love me some Joy.

  13. Salamander says:

    With all the revolving hosts, they fail to address the real problem, which is Whoopi. She is very off-putting.

  14. Vampi says:

    Oh goodie!!!!
    Another fundie type who thinks a woman should bow down to her man is given a platform on National Television…AGAIN!
    Her and Kirk can go suck it. Hypocrite money grubbers.
    Why are networks putting these people on TV who want to take women back to repressive times?!!! I’m starting to think there’s a political agenda here… Seriously!
    the View is waaaaayyyyy past it’s sell by date. Whoopi the rape apologist, and now this??? Ugh.

    • Aila says:

      I guess she is supposed to be the hyper-conservative side of the table so everyone else has someone to bounce things off of, thereby delivering a “balanced” show. Or she just is there to anger people because that always gets people’s attention and therefore ratings.

      Couldn’t they have gotten a conservative who isn’t out to repress women? Do those people even exist?

  15. meme says:

    bunch of shrieking shrews spouting their oh so important opinions. who is this bure person and why should I care what she has to say?

  16. Vampi says:

    Joy is awesome BTW, but fundie Candace and her book about how a MAN knows best? Nawwww. Nope! The View may want to re-think her after all this Duggar mess. We’ve all seen where that kind of “religious thinking” can get women and children. This is a bad, bad decision.

  17. mkyarwood says:

    She’s got them ‘lights out’ eyes.

  18. JenniferJustice says:

    Did they really say “….I am extremely proud to see the legacy of smart and diverse women engaging in entertaining and thought-provoking conversation continue.” ? The legacy of smart women went out the window with Kelly and Raven.

    I’m probably not going to agree with some of Candace’s views, but at least she can speak, knows her continents v. countries and she won’t put her foot in her mouth ad-naseum. I don’t even watch the show, but I’d be more likely to now that they seem to have ceased hiring dolts and then trying to convince us they are smart people whose opinions matter.

  19. snowflake says:

    I love joy behar, but I still don’t think I can watch the show.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      Have you ever tried her lasagna? If you google her name and lasagna, you can get the recipe. It’s really good.

  20. Marianne says:

    If you’re at the point where you keep changing your hosts every year, its time to just cancel.

  21. lisa says:

    it’s like the middle ages and there arent enough educated people to go around

    none of these people should be talking on tv unless someone gives them a script
