If Elisabeth Hasselbeck leaves The View as rumored, a big name may be taking her seat: Radar reports that Brooke Shields is close to a deal to join the remaining ladies. She's guest hosted before, and sources tell Showbiz411 that Barbara Walters wants her to become a permanent addition because the audience loves her. And it helps that she's a famous mom. Regardless of whether Hasselbeck exits, Joy Behar has confirmed she'll be leaving an empty chair after almost 17 years. (More Elisabeth Hasselbeck stories.)
