    Whoopi Goldberg might join ABC talk show 'The View' as a permanent host, as the show bosses are in final talks with the actress/comedian. The 51-year-old who has been a frequent guest host on the show will be a replacement for Rosie O'Donnell, who left the show in May.

    ABC Daytime president Brian Frons feels that Goldberg has been 'terrific' as a guest host but no deal was final yet. "We have no closed deal," Variety magazine quoted Frons, as saying.

    Unlike most guest stars who aren't allowed much opportunity to speak, Goldberg speaks her mind and made sure all her opinions were known. In one instance, Goldberg told an interrupting Joy Behar, co-host of the show, to let her finish first.

    The show bosses are also in talks with 'Everybody Loves Raymond' actress Sherri Shepherd, as they are looking for two hosts, as when Star Jones Reynolds, was fired from the show in 2006, nobody took her place. According to a source, both the deals will be finalised by next week.
