Yes! The View's new hosts will "finally be announced later this week," Barbara Walters said on her daytime chat show today. Bets are on Whoopi Goldberg and Sherri Shepherd, the comic actress who's been guest-hosting for months. But it's a resounding no to the rumor that Victoria Beckham will be hosting for two weeks. "It's news to us," says the show's queen bee. "She is not. We wish her well. We think she's wonderfully exciting, but that's not who we're going to have on." - Reporting by Ileane Rudolph
