Who Should be New on The View

Now that Star Jones Reynolds is leaving The View -- in the midst of accusations by Star that her departure felt like a firing and Barbara Walters saying she felt "betrayed" by Star -- we turn out attention to who should be Star's replacement.

Lots of names mentioned: Phylicia Rashad, Vanessa Williams, Oprah's BFF Gayle King.

But our choice is Sheryl Lee Ralph. Not only is the Dreamgirls star and Moesha mom bright, opinionated, charismatic and a committed humanitarian, she is married to our favorite state senator, Vincent Hughes.

As for Star, who fell out of favor with The View's audience for shamelessly promoting her wedding sponsors and her disingenuous weight loss, something tells me she'll be OK. She's proven to be a more than competent fill-in for Larry King on his CNN talk show and a capable businesswoman. She'll find a way to maintain the lifestyle to which she has become accustomed.
