'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)"

Ever since MILLIONS of clueless females were DUPED INTO VOTING FOR OBAMA, The View has lost it's appeal.

I quit watching a long time ago...It got too political and mean spirited against conservatives...Guess there aren't enough liberals watching it these days to keep it going...Needs to be OFF the air....The Talk is SO much better and they keep it light with NO politics....

I didn't mind jenny but Sherri turns my stomach, especially when there is anything to do with food! She grabs everything before anyone else and chews with her mouth open! So glad to see her go. The show has gone downhill since Joy left!

Chaos when 5 women talk at the same time. Makes me turn the channel when two or more talk at same time ...that goes for all tv shows. Whoopie is not even impressing anyone. Why keep this stupid show on at all ?
