The View welcomes original hosts for surprise reunion

Posted on

Talk about a Flashback Friday!

The View surprised audiences Friday morning by bringing back original co-hosts Meredith Vieira, Star Jones, and Debbie Matenopoulos to join Joy Behar as they discussed the day’s Hot Topics — and continued the show’s 20th anniversary celebration.

Just like old times, the four women dove right into the latest news, with Vieira once again acting as moderator, a role she’d originated long before Whoopi Goldberg joined the ABC talk show. The video below captures their discussion, which focused on Donald and Melania Trump’s meetings with President Barack and Michelle Obama on Thursday.

Vieira, Jones, and Matenopoulos were a part of the show’s original members when it began 20 years ago, as well as Barbara Walters, who didn’t make it to the reunion. The show’s current group of co-hosts includes Behar, Goldberg, Fuller House actress Candace Cameron Bure, Paula Faris, Sara Haines, Jedediah Bila, Sunny Hostin, and up until recently, Raven-Symone.
