Look familiar? Well, that's because it is.
Barbara Walters, Whoopi Goldberg, Sherri Shepherd, Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Joy Behar will all be back to co-host the ABC daytime show when it returns Sept. 2 after a summer hiatus. But, for the first time, the five ladies have been photographed together. (Remember, Shepherd was a late addition to season 11 – and was never part of any of the show's early photos.)
The photo shoot took place in New York – and the cohosts had plenty to do in between frames. The women danced to Tina Turner's hit "Proud Mary" and Janet Jackson tunes. (Shepherd is a huge Janet fan.)
Between takes Behar also worked on solving a New York Times crossword puzzle, while Shepherd caught up on e-mail and Goldberg practiced the music and script for her role in Xanadu on Broadway.
