This sounds crazy, but hey . . . you never know. CBS is looking for a replacement for JULIE CHEN on "The Talk", and one of the not-always-reliable British tabloids says that the frontrunner is ROSIE O'DONNELL.
A so-called "source" says, quote, "She has a proven track record, from her own show to her time on 'The View', and despite being polarizing she brings in viewers.
"Rosie can be a bit intense when it comes to politics, but she is incredibly good at connecting with an audience, and would be an ideal fit."
Other names that have come up include Carnie Wilson, Ann Curry, Debbie Matenopoulos, Lisa Ling, Kris Jenner, Mayim Bialik, and Carrie Ann Inaba.
The source says a final decision won't be made until November.
