ABC is starting to fill in Whoopi Goldberg's future seatmates on the View. TMZ reports that Rosie O'Donnell has already signed on, with the producers still on the hunt for a Latina and a conservative. (Abby Hunstman is apparently in the running for the latter category.) Fans will recall that O'Donnell served as moderator on the show in 2006-07 before breaking her contract in the wake of a nasty on-air feud with Elisabeth Hasselbeck, notes US Weekly. Today, the outgoing Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy played nice before the cameras, reportedly on the network's orders. (More The View stories.)
