The girls of The View: Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Joy Behar, Whoopi Goldberg and Sherri Shepherd, are demanding huge pay raises from Barbara Walters because the show is a huge success and they want a piece of the pie.

According to the show's producers, The View's viewership is up to 4.2 million from 2.5 million just a year ago. They say it's thanks, in part, to Barbara Walters' decision to increase the time for the Hot Topics segments, where all the ladies are free to argue to their hearts' content.
So now the ladies of The View are demanding several million dollars in pay raises and I, for one, thing they should get it because, let's face it; if Barbara Walters left the show, no one would care. But if Elisabeth Hasselbeck of Joy Behar left, we'd feel the emptiness.
