McCarthy, Shepherd Fired From ‘The View’

Barbara Walters is gone from The View, and now so are co-hosts Jenny McCarthy and Sherri Shepherd. The hosts announced their departures on Thursday night, with Shepherd saying “it is time for me to move on,” and McCarthy tweeting “If Sherri goes… I go too #sisters.” According to TMZ, the pair were fired, along with executive producer Bill Geddie. In a statement, ABC said the show “will be moving in an exciting new direction next season and ABC has made decisions to evolve the show creatively.” It appears Whoopi Goldberg is returning.
