Michelle Collins will join "The View" as co-host, although an official announcement is not expected until next week. Collins -- who appeared on Wednesday's edition, and has been on the show a total of 26 times -- was to have been announced Wednesday, but ABC decided to wait because of Rosie Perez's exit, according to multiple reports. As comedian and managing editor of VH1's "Best Week Ever" website, Collins has written for (and appeared on) Kathy Griffin's Bravo series ("Kathy") and appeared on E!'s "Chelsea Lately." She also was a regular host of Logo's "The Gossip Queens."
