Just weeks after the departure of Barbara Walters as host of ABC’s The View, Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy told their followers on social media that they are leaving, too. In her statement, Shepherd said, "It’s been seven wonderful years on The View and after careful consideration it is time for me to move on. … I look forward to the business opportunities that lay [sic] ahead for me and I am incredibly grateful to my View family and my fans for supporting me on this journey." McCarthy’s statement was more terse. She tweeted: "If Sherri goes I go too. #sisters. My View will be changing too. … Thanks to everyone at the show for your dedication and an amazing year." Their exits would leave The View with only Whoopi Goldberg in front of the cameras — for now. ABC’s only comment on the departures was that the show "will be moving in an exciting new direction next season and ABC has made decisions to evolve the show creatively." The network provided no specifics about the nature of the new direction.
