“I love Rosie. I have been a fan of hers forever,” McCarthy says in an interview with Us Weekly. “I knew they were looking to bring some heat to the table, and there is no doubt that with Rosie there will be some heat. They are definitely going in the direction of fire.”
It sounds like McCarthy means this all as a positive. “It’s going to be some exciting television,” she adds. “I will be there with my beer and popcorn at eleven in the morning. I can’t wait to see how it plays out.”
McCarthy and co-host Sherri Shepherd were both fired from “The View” in June, leaving only Whoopi Goldberg as a returning host. Other new co-hosts are expected soon.
