Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy: Let Go from The View!

by at . Comments

The View is getting a major makeover.

ABC confirmed on Thursday that neither Sherri Shepherd nor Jenny McCarthy will return to the afternoon talk show this fall, with the former saying via statement:

"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."

Shepherd's exit comes as a bit of a surprise, but talk of McCarthy leaving has been circulating for weeks now.

The controversial blonde Tweeted soon after the news broke that “my View will be changing too. As will with many hard working folks,” and later added of her soon-to-be-former colleague:

"If Sherri goes… I go too. #sisters."

Based on the above selfie with Donnie Wahlberg, Shepherd and McCarthy don't seem too broken up about their ousting, do they?

"The View will be moving in an exciting new direction next season and ABC has made decisions to evolve the show creatively,” ABC said its own statement, as only Whoopi Goldberg is currently signed for next season.

Look for new episodes to air this September and try to decide: Who do you want to see on the new panel?
