The Celebrity Who Was Almost On The View Instead Of Jenny McCarthy

Prior to Jenny McCarthy sitting alongside the likes of Whoopi Golderg and Barbara Walters, it turns out ABC executives were initially hoping to have Brooke Shields join “The View” panel. “The Blue Lagoon” star opened up about her experience on “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen” in 2019, admitting, “I went through a week of being on the show and I did all my homework. I take everything very seriously.” So, what exactly happened then? Jenny McCarthy got in there first. And it sounds like Shields was actually okay with that. The actor admitted she and McCarthy are friends and she was happy when she landed the gig, noting, “I think they were going for something different.”

Producer Bill Geddie opened up about how the Shields and McCarthy switcheroo went down in “Ladies Who Punch: The Explosive Inside Story of ‘The View,'” revealing that Shields did at least one test run in front of an audience — but didn’t get the best response. “For some reason, our audience never warmed to her,” he explained but noted he actually liked Shields in the position.

Also being considered for the vacant seat was comedian Ali Wentworth, though it turns out Walters wasn’t a massive fan of either. That’s when the decision fell on Geddie’s shoulders — and he wanted McCarthy.
