Meredith Vieira To Guest On “The View”

Meredith Vieira, who spent nine seasons as the moderator of ABC's "The View" before leaving the show in June, 2006, will make her first guest appearance on the show, live, Monday, October 8 (11:00 a.m.-12:00 noon, ET).

Ms. Vieira, the Emmy(r) Award-winning host of "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire," will be promoting the show's soon-to-be released DVD game. "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire" is currently in its sixth season and in November celebrates its 1000th episode.

Her last appearance on "The View" was a special one-hour celebrity roast that featured Mario Cantone, Joan Rivers, Kelsey Grammer and Joy Behar. Some of Ms. Vieira's most outrageous and memorable moments on "The View" included her Wesley Snipes lap dance, locking lips with "Transformers" star Josh Duhamel, donning a dominatrix outfit and dressing as a hotdog, tap dancing while singing "Take Me Out to the Ballgame," as well as engaging in a hair-pulling faux fight on-air with Ms. Behar.
