After 7 years on the show Sherri Shepherd announced “SHE” is leaving The View. Although word on the street is that she and Jenny McCarthy have been fired. How Shepherd has lasted this long is beyond me.
In the statement, Shepherd said, “It’s been seven wonderful years on The View and after careful consideration it is time for me to move on. I am extremely grateful to Barbara Walters and Bill Gedde for giving me the opportunity. I look forward to the business opportunities that lay ahead for me and I am incredibly grateful to my View family and my fans for supporting me on this journey.”
There have rumblings of Jenny McCarthy being let got for months. I like Jenny but i don’t think the View was a right fit for her. Shepherd on the other hand- Good riddance.
Update- 10:43 p.m.: ABC said in a statement late today that they are taking The View in an “exciting new direction” and they “made decisions to evolve the show creatively.”
