For a show that reports the news, The View also knows how to make some news.

During the 20 seasons ABC's daytime talk show has been on the air, a group of ladies haven't been shy about sharing their life stories, opinions on hot-button issues and asking tough questions to a variety of guests.

At the same time, the tabloids certainly haven't hesitated in writing their own headlines about the show that continues to entertain its loyal morning audience.

As The View celebrates 20 years this week, we're looking back at some of the wildest rumors that surfaced in our gallery below

While some were truthful, others were downright crazy. In fact, some of these rumors may have you thinking twice about what you read next about this daytime staple.

While season 21 will likely bring its fresh batch of new rumors, one thing is clear: The View's ratings are way up and a combination of great co-hosts, guests and hot topics have all contributed to the success.

As the ladies always say, maybe we all should sit back and enjoy the view instead of the rumors. 

Celebrate The View's 20th anniversary with a rebroadcast of the premiere show from August 11, 1997 this Friday on ABC. Check your local listings
