Alyssa Farah Griffin will join The View and it seems as if the other co-hosts aren’t too thrilled about it.
Griffin, of course, is replacing Meghan McCain as the show’s conservative host starting in the fall. But as relayed by Suggest.com, Griffin isn’t exactly a popular choice.
There may be some truth to that. Fans have already threatened to boycott The View once the aide to former president Donald Trump takes her seat.
Of course, history tells us fans probably won’t actually stop watching, and while co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar tend to lean left, Behar offered praise over the selection in an interview with Entertainment Tonight.
“Alyssa has got a whole different personality. I think it will be smoother, frankly,” Behar said. “I think this girl is going to do very well — I call her girl because she’s only 32-years old.”
Basically, it would be understandable if the report on Griffin and her co-hosts is viewed as fairly dubious.
Along with Behar, Goldberg and Griffin, Sarah Haines and Sunny Hostin will be back on the ABC daytime hit. Hostin, in fact, recently agreed to a two-year deal, as we relayed last week.
As for Griffin, whether her new hosts and the general public are thrilled with her addition or not … well, it doesn’t really seem to matter. She will debut when the new season begins and that will be that.
