Now that Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy are officially out at "The View," speculation about the show's next co-hosts has gone wild.
The show is completely overhauling its cast: Whoopi Goldberg is the only co-host who will stay on after this season, and Rosie O'Donnell just closed a deal to return to "The View." That leaves three out of the five spots still open, and there have been reports that the show is looking for a conservative to sit at the table, a Latino and even a male co-host.
So who's been named a contender? At this point, it might be easier to ask who hasn't been named.
On Sunday, Page Six said that the short list of candidates is rumored to include: Ann Curry, Mario Cantone, Bernadette Peters, Leah Remini, S.E. Cupp and Meghan McCain.
Meanwhile, the New York Times has said that the top prospects for a potential male co-host are E! personality Ross Mathews, football commentator Jesse Palmer and conservative pundit Will Cain.
