'The View'

Firing Massacre

EXCLUSIVE

The View Fired Sherri Shepherd Jenny McCarthy

"The View" is cleaning house.  Network sources tell us the cast has been fired... except for Whoopi Goldberg.
  
Our sources say there was a meeting at ABC late Thursday afternoon and they announced Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy were out.   Sources tell us executive producer Bill Geddie also will not be coming back.

Maybe not coincidentally ... Barbara Walters is scheduled to be on the show Friday (though it did tape on Wednesday).
 
"The View" has been in turmoil since Jenny was hired ... it messed up the chemistry on the show.

And several sources say there's a real chance Rosie O'Donnell will be coming back.  We're also told producers are "very interested" in Laila Ali.

We're also told the show is interested in Ross Mathews and Jesse Palmer.

Jenny tweeted late Thursday, "My View will be changing too. As will with many hard working folks. Thanks to everyone at the show for your dedication and an amazing year."

Shepherd posted a photo on Instagram Thursday night, saying, "Mr @DonnieWahlberg always takes care of his ladies @jennyannmccarthy & me! To be continued... ;O)"

Whoopi is the only one with any talent. You can see the disdain on her face when that blonde chick butts in to every single conversation and turns it back to herself. Sherry is okay but the blonde must go.

I had watched The View faithfully every morning since its beginning, but felt they lowered the standards of the show when they hired Jenny McCarthy, so I stopped watching it. I would love to see Rosie come back.

What kind of porno do you think Sherri Shepherd likes? She just seems like she'd really be into anal.

I love Whoopi. You can see her annoyance at the blonde one every time she butts into every single conversation. She NEVER shuts up. She needs to go. Sherri is okay but I could live with it just being Whoopi and some other fun co-hosts.

I stopped watching after Meridith Vierra left years ago. The clips I have seen from the show makes me wonder who watches it and why. I saw in the news that Whoopi told a guest this week that his opinion was: "that is very white of you". I did not see the show but if that article is true, again who watches it?
