Kathy Griffin might be going to The View
The New York Daily News is reporting that popular comedian and TV personality Kathy Griffin may be making her way out of E! Network so as to join ABC’s popular morning show called The View. Various analysts believe that Griffin’s outspoken persona will fit perfectly with the audience and crew of The View. To add on that many believe that it is what the comedian needs at this time.
“She was great and has Whoopi (Goldberg)’s backing. Whoopi loves Kathy. The View would be a perfect fit if Kathy wanted to fly to New York weekly. It’s a Monday-through-Thursday job and she can tour on the weekends, the best two nights to sell tickets,” said one of the insiders. “Her name has been tossed around, yes. She’s opinionated in a smart way and not argumentative for the sake of it.”
Sources are claiming that Griffin, who recently stepped down as the host of E!’s Fashion Police, might be joining The View as early as this fall. Griffin was hired by E! to replace Joan Rivers, who was without a doubt the star in the show, and surprised many when she decided to leave the show stating that it just wasn’t the right fit for her.
“My brand of humor, while unrepentant and unafraid, is all about CONTEXT. There is plenty to make fun of in pop culture without bringing people’s bodies into it,” she said after her Fashion Police departure. “I’m surprised that people are so invested in this show. But I shouldn’t be because Joan [Rivers] was so incredible and amazing, and it just wasn’t the right thing for me.”
