The brand new panel of The View is all set to begin their hosting duties, and it may prove to be quite interesting. Paula Faris, Candace Cameron Bure, Raven Symone, and Michelle Collins sat down with Robin Roberts on Good Morning America on Tuesday to talk about the new season that they are about to embark on.
Missing from this interview was Joy Behar, who is making her return to the show, and veteran Whoopi Goldberg, but the others had a lot to say on the mixed personalities of women who will be hashing out their own view of things. The “Hot Topics” segment is always entertaining, even when those famous heated exchanges occur.
The most recent one came when new host Candace Cameron Bure seemed to upset Raven Symone with siding with the bakers who refused to bake a wedding cake for a gay couple. It could have been that this spiff landed the Fuller House actress this new gig.
Raven and Candace sat next to each other during the interview on GMA, so it looks like all is good between them. There doesn’t seem to be any friction, and they did say that they hugged it out after their famous exchange on The View.
Cameron Bure did say that she is excited to be on the show. She is not afraid to speak out, especially about her personal faith and she is looking forward to that part of it.
“I can’t wait for us to have healthy conversations and respectful conversations. It’s okay to have different points of view. That’s what makes the world go round.”
She has quite a crazy schedule with juggling this talk show and filming Fuller House, as well. She will be commuting back and forth between Los Angeles and New York for both shows. She is also a mom of three and she said that her whole family is very supportive and is excited that she will be a part of The View.
Paula Faris, who is a weekend anchor for GMA, will also be doing both gigs. She has three kids, as well, and will be trying to play the balancing game with her new hosting duty. She did get some advice from her 8-year-old daughter on how to act on The View.
Joy Behar left the show in 2013 and is returning for the new season. She told the New York Post that they made her an offer that she couldn’t refuse. Whoopi Goldberg is sticking around, so all of these women will bring something different to the table. They each have different personalities that may mesh together, or at times may clash, and that is what makes The View so interesting to watch. Hopefully, these women will respect the others, even if their own perspectives are not the same.
