brooke shields joining the view Brooke Shields joining 'The View'?In the wake of Joy Behar leaving “The View” — and the rumor that Elisabeth Hasselbeck is also on her way out — the popular ABC daytime talk show is looking for new panel members. Is Brooke Shields a top choice?

Showbiz 411 says a source tells them a deal is very close to being worked out to bring the 47-year-old actress on board, while People reports that a source says, “[Shields] has been asked to co-host a few times. They love her and she enjoys it.”

“She has co-hosted ‘The Talk,’ ‘Good Morning America’ and ‘The Today Show’ as well. She’s a great host,” the source adds.

What do you think, viewers? Is Brooke Shields a good choice to replace Joy Behar?
