In an interview for Variety this week, Rosie O’Donnell likened the latest casting process for “The View” to “The Hunger Games.”

The tributes candidates, according to the magazine, were “herded into a room” last month to participate in mock debates with both the comedienne and fellow co-host Whoopi Goldberg. Rosie Perez and Nicolle Wallace were apparently the two to survive.

“I think Whoopi and I were both a little shocked at having to do a chemistry test,” O’Donnell told Variety. “I don’t know if there’s a way to test that. It felt very negative and competitive.”

A somewhat similar situation went down to find the five women of Warner Bros’ daytime talker “The Real.”

“I will tell you from my perspective, when we started casting we had a huge pool of women. We started with over a hundred people,” said executive producer Sallyann Salsano (“Jersey Shore”).

With Tamar Braxton, Loni Love, Adrienne Bailon, Jeannie Mai and Tamera Mowry-Housley ultimately chosen, it appears Salsano wanted to make a strong statement about diversity in daytime.

But, Salsano says it was strictly coincidental that all five hosts are women of color.
