Jenny McCarthy & Sherri Shepherd Talk 'The View' Exits Live On-Air
“Seven in the Bible is the number of God’s completion. And I’ve been here seven years and my time at The View is complete,” Shepherd told viewers at the top of The View broadcast this morning — the show’s first original episode since Shepherd announced she was leaving, and Jenny McCarthy said “Me too!” — or words to that effect.
Shepherd said she had “exciting news” — and would announce it at some point in the future, on the show.
The Giant Neon Pink Gorilla — as Whoopi Goldberg named it, was addressed at the beginning of the show. McCarthy jumped in with word that the reports of the two exits was rumor only and not true. Roars from the studio crowd. “Actually, it’s true – but I love the support!” McCarthy simpered, then added, “After much consideration, I’ve taken a new job that will allow me to do what I do best, which is talk without having to interrupt anyone” — which she too said she would unveil at that Future Point.
McCarthy encouraged fans to tune in to her next venture--"even if it does compete with The View."
Is that a hint Jenny?
And for her part, Sherri says she's known that she was making her exit from the chat fest since the spring, but stayed mum because she “didn’t want to do anything to distract from Barbara Walters and her retirement in May.”
