Unfortunately, ABC is now dealing with a major issue: Potentially losing yet another The View co-host. According to GossipCop, a source shared with Life & Style that Candace Owens is among the top contenders for McCain’s replacement.
The source stated that Goldberg lost it when she found out ABC was considering adding Owens to The View co-host roster. Goldberg also reportedly threatened to walk out if the network actually decided to select Owens. “She actually threatened to walk if they hired [Owens],” the insider told Life & Style. It was revealed that Joy Behar also said she would follow suit and quit if Owens joins the all-women panel.
Gossip Cop further stated that it debunked the rumor when Owens’ name was first mentioned. The View is definitely looking into a Republican to replace McCain. But ABC doesn’t seem to be rushing to get the seat filled. So the media outlet doesn’t think the rumors going out about the drama are definitely true.

The Daily Mail reported that chaos is also erupting behind the scenes of The View. Joy Behar is reportedly now “openly moaning” about McCain as it finally hit her. “Joy has only just realized that they could be getting someone much further right on the political spectrum than Meghan. Who won’t put up with her crap,” a source told the media outlet.
The insider also stated that The View was trying to Donald Trump Jr.’s girlfriend, Kimberly Guilfoyle to join the panel. “Kimberly would be great. As she would literally prosecute the other members of the panel every day of the week,” the source proclaimed. They also explained one of the highest-rated episodes of the talk show was when Guilfoyle appeared on stage.
Although Megyn Kelly was reportedly on the list of potential hosts, she currently has a deal with Sirius and cannot be on The View as a regular co-host. The source further shared that Ana Navarro is frustrated because she has been wanting McCain’s seat full-time. “She’s convinced they’re not going to give her a full-time seat at the table.”
The insider did go on to add that Navarro doesn’t actually deserve McCain’s seat because she’s “not a Republican” in a true sense of the world. “All she does is slam people who voted for Trump. We need to hire a Trump Republican to reach more of the available audience at home. Ana is not the person.”
