The View executives are working to retain their spot as a controversial morning show by signing one of their most divisive hosts. Whoopi Goldberg has signed on for another year with the show, saying that she’ll continue to “annoy some and delight others.”


The show will begin its 20th season this year, and Goldberg will remain on the panel. The contract negotiations have been going on behind the scenes for quite a while, but Goldberg has given her fans a chance to relax by tweeting the official news earlier today.

Other regulars Joy Behar and Paula Faris have also committed to the upcoming season. Raven Symone and Candace Cameron-Bure, the other two hosts on the roundtable, haven’t confirmed whether or not they’ll be back for another year. And as a way to spice things up in their 20th year, The View regular Sara Haines is also in talks to take a permanent seat at the table, but nothing has been made official yet.

It’s interesting that the show continues to recruit and maintain their talent. While other morning shows experience host-related drama, The View has been able to keep consistent hosts as well as to create fresh chemistry by introducing new hosts without much behind-the-scenes drama.

It probably helps that their drama unfolds on camera. The relationships between the hosts have never been perfect, but when it comes down to it, each host, old and new, has been dedicated to maintaining the integrity of the show. There’s no drama to hide or be blindsided with because they’re so honest with each other on and off the show.

It’s a testament to the women, who — despite having regular, heated debates — are all able to put their careers first and the success of the show before their own drama. It’s also amazing that the executives celebrate their hosts and have yet to stab any of them in the back.

Another example of why women should run the world.
