Sherri Shepherd

Sherri Shepherd has left “The View,” and she’s taking new co-host Jenny McCarthy with her!

ABC wants to try something new on the daytime round-table, and that means some big changes are in store. “‘The View’ will be moving in an exciting new direction next season and ABC has made decisions to evolve the show creatively,” the network explained.

Sherri announced her exit on Twitter, stating:

The recently separated comedian and the cast newbie may be leaving “The View” at end of this season, but UsMagazine.com reports that they’re checking out for very different reasons. Supposedly, Sherri and the network couldn’t reach a compromise on her contract demands. “There were negotiations but they were unable to reach an agreement,” a source close to the show told Us.

Jenny, who had only been on the show for one season, was simply a production casualty. The insider said, “Jenny’s departure was the result of a decision to move the show in a different direction creatively.” It’s not clear what the network plans to do next season. After show creator Barbara Walters retired from “The View” earlier this year, Sherri and Jenny’s exit means that Whoopie Goldberg is the last woman standing!
