Elisabeth Hasselbeck is out.

And Jenny McCarthy is officially in.

Following weeks of speculation over this blonde bombshell taking over as co-host on The View, Barbara Walters confirmed this morning that McCarthy is, indeed, in.

“Jenny brings us intelligence as well as warmth and humor,” Walters said in a statement. “She can be serious and outrageous. She has connected with our audience and offers a fresh point of view. Jenny will be a great addition to the show as we usher in an exciting new chapter for The View.”

McCarthy has guest-anchored eight times already and appears up for the challenge.

“I’m beyond thrilled … I look forward to helping make hot topics a little bit hotter, and showing my mom that my interrupting skills have finally paid off,” said Donnie Wahlberg's girlfriend in her own statement.

McCarthy will join the 17th season of The View, which premieres September 9.

Is she a solid choice as permanent new co-host?

Why is she wearing glasses? She never wore them before. Oh yea, that's right! So that she can appear "intelligent" while she chats about hard hitting topics such as the Kardashian baby.
