Jenny McCarthy Is In At 'The View'
Barbara Walters insisted last week that Elisabeth Hasselbeck wouldn't be replaced as a co-host on The View any time soon. Turns out "any time soon" was limited to a handful of days as Jenny McCarthy has just officially been announced as a new co-host on the popular daytime talk show.
Longtime The View fans already have some sense of what she’s like on the panel. McCarthy, has made 17 previous appearances on the show, including eight as a guest co-host. For months the media has speculated that McCarthy is likely to fill a vacancy on the show.
“Jenny brings us intelligence as well as warmth and humor,” Walters said in a statement. “She can be serious and outrageous. She has connected with our audience and offers a fresh point of view. Jenny will be a great addition to the show as we usher in an exciting new chapter for The View.”
“I’m beyond thrilled … I look forward to helping make hot topics a little bit hotter, and showing my mom that my interrupting skills have finally paid off,” McCarthy added in a statement.
Jenny will take on her new role later this fall.
