In the latest surprise on ABC’s “The View,” comedian Joy Behar is returning to co-host the daytime talk show as part of a massive overhaul of the show’s hosting team for its upcoming 19th season.

Full House” star Candace Cameron Bure will also join Whoopi Goldberg at the table, along with Paula Faris, Michelle Collins and Raven Symone. The show will also move to a live format five days a week rather than offering a taped installment on Fridays.

Contributors who will rotate through with the regular co-hosts include Padma Lakshmi, Stacy London, Ana Navarro, Sherri Shepherd (another former “View” regular) and Molly Sims.

Behar’s return is said to have come at the behest of “View” creator-exec producer Barbara Walters. Walters retired in 2014 from the show she launched in 1997. The past season has been full of behind the scenes drama as the show attempted to roll out a new team of hosts, »

Padma Lakshmi and Carson Daly on the Secret of Unscripted Success

15 June 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Top Chef’s” Padma Lakshmi and “The Voice’s” Carson Daly are both in the business of making people who have little to no experience on television feel comfortable on camera. And both are responsible for serving in what Daly describes as the role of “conductor.” The hosts of two of TV’s most prominent, Emmy-winning unscripted series were eager to compare notes when Variety brought them together for a wide-ranging conversation. They proved to be kindred spirits from the start when both were quick to change into more comfortable clothes immediately after our photo shoot.

What is the hardest part of pulling off a production with so many contestants that runs several months?

Padma Lakshmi: It’s knowing these chefs have taken so much time out of their schedule to be on our show. They don’t know if they’ll have a job when they get back. »

Khloe Kardashian Flaunts Major Skin at Upfronts, Goes Topless In Kylie Jenner Selfie!

15 May 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Holy cleavage! Khloe Kardashian turned up the heat at the NBCUniversal Upfronts on Thursday in New York City, putting her killer curves on display in a super sexy blue dress. Though she wore a long-sleeved maxi, the reality star's plunging neckline provided plenty of cleavage, and a giant slit up the middle flashed lots of leg.  By her side were mom Kris Jenner and younger sister Kylie, who were way more covered up for the daytime event. Kris looked chic and sophisticated in a white suit with nude heels, while her 17-year-old daughter sported a long white dress with a high slit and a heavy belt at the waist. We have to commend Kylie for keeping her usually-dark makeup to a minimum -- she looked amazing with neutral eye shadow and a toned-down nude lip. Fans got to see even more of Khloe thanks to a very revealing Instagram pic »
