'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 should be the one kicked out the door. The whole show needs to be put out of it's misery.

At least bring in someone who has a brain and doesn't talk just to hear their own voice. Jesse Palmer is annoying as well and he is not the answer.

Insignificant show. Extreme far left politically correct women. Totally irrelevant to 98% of America.

Should have fired Whoopi too but then they would have been accused of being racist. The show is tanking in the ratings- it has nothing to do with the "chemistry"...

THis is a show that infects American women with some very abrerrant ideas. It should be gone.

Who cares. If I want advice or someone's view on a situation those bunch of clowns would be the last opinion I would want. Most people want an " educated" view. Just cancel it already....

Ratings went down when they got rid of the only person with an opposing view. They need to get rid of Whoopi and keep Sherri. Am so over everything she has to say. I stopped watching, they all say the same thing....boring.

Please cancel that crap! I can't stand those rude women talking over each other and yelling. And Whoppi and Jenny are so unprofessional.

In truth, this show jumped the shark a long time ago. They waited too long to get rid of Hasseldope and made the mistake of letting Joy Behar leave. The answer IS NOT adding men to the channel, it's putting the show out of its misery.

Should have started with Whoopi. She has no expertise in anything, yet is seems everyone bows down when she speaks an opinion. I may not have agreed with a lot of what Elizabeth had to say but at least it was a different View and kept it interesting. Stopped watching
