ABC in no hurry to fill Star Jones Reynolds' vacant 'The View' seat

UPI News Service, 07/09/2006 

ABC will -- for now -- fill Star Jones Reynolds' vacant seat on its New York-based talk show "The View" with a bevy of guest stars.

Network officials told Daily Variety they had no plans to mount a search for a permanent replacement for the fired Reynolds until after the show enters its 10th season, which happens Sept. 5.

An insider told Variety ABC officials do not want the firing or replacement of Reynolds to overshadow its publicity blitz heralding newcomer Rosie O'Donnell, who is replacing Meredith Vieira as moderator of "The View."

"It's about getting Rosie in place and making her comfortable," the source said.

Actresses Shannen Doherty, Kelly Monaco, Lorraine Bracco and Whoopi Goldberg as well as singers Vanessa Williams and Katharine McPhee are just a few of the stars expected to come into "View" as the show heads toward its Aug. 4 annual break.
