With Joy Behar leaving and ABC soon to officially kick Elisabeth Hasselbeck to the curb from The View, there will be some spots to fill.

Word is that one of those spots will be filled by Brooke Shields. Sources say that Shields will be joining the gang of ABC morning show once Hasselbeck is gone. 

Word is that Barbara Walters likes the idea of Shields.  The 47-year-old actress has already guest hosted on The View and fits the show's demo perfectly.  She’s articulate, has Hollywood connections perfect for nabbing interviews, is the right age, and is a mom!
