George Stephanopoulos to replace Diane Sawyer on 'Good Morning America'

Georgesteph Can you imagine George Stephanopoulos interviewing Rihanna?

Better get used to the idea, because the former aide to President Clinton and current host of ABC's "This Week" will be the new Diane Sawyer on "Good Morning America."

Some unsolicited advice for George: We know "GMA" is technically a news show, but hey, Jenny McCarthy was just on the show Monday, so we're guessing your world might start looking a little softer.

Keep in mind, in the realm of celebrities and gossip, we get juiced about Lindsay Lohan, not Lindsey Graham. The Clinton we chat about is Chelsea. Kanye West comes before the Middle East.

And Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger? He could go either way, though the Ministry is expecting him back in the celebrity realm pretty soon.

P.S.: Juju Chang will replace Chris Cuomo as news anchor; Sawyer's last day is Friday.
