Jenny McCarthy And Sherri Shepherd Make Surprise Departures From 'The View'

Whoopi Goldberg is now the only host 'The View' has.

ABC Officials announced on Thursday night (June 26th) that the daytime talk show is going through a huge transitional period. "The View will be moving in an exciting new direction next season and ABC has made decisions to evolve the show creatively," the television network's statement read.

"It's been seven wonderful years on The View and after careful consideration it is time for me to move on," Shepherd said in a personal statement to Deadline.

Adding, "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."

Although McCarthy only worked on the show for one season, her leaving "was the result of a decision to move the show in a different direction creatively," the source added.
