Things are reportedly being shaken up behind the scenes at ‘The View’…again. This time it’s Raven-Symone who’s on the outs, and producers are already scouting out options for a possible replacement, according to a new report!
“They’ve already been eying someone to replace her at the table, and she’s aware,” Page Six reports. “She wants to focus on her acting again.” So, it looks like things are pretty mutual, and even if it’s producers who want Raven out, she doesn’t seem too hurt, according to this report.
But let’s not jump the gun on spewing out possible replacements. “It’s ridiculous,” a rep for the show told the paper. “Ratings are up. We are very happy with the team we have. Raven is a great addition to the panel.”
Raven just joined the show as a permanent co-host in 2015, but she had been a recurring face around the table before that. Of course, The View is no stranger to major hosting shake-ups. Barbara Walters, Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy left the show after Season 17, leaving Whoopi Goldberg as the only remaining host.
In July 2014, before the premiere of Season 18, Rosie O’Donnell confirmed she’d be returning to the show, along with Rosie Perez and Nicolle Wallace. However, Rosie left again in Feb. 2015, and eventually, both Rosie and Nicolle were also on the outs. Raven became a permanent host in June 2015, joined by Michelle Collins in 2015.
Do you think Raven should leave The View, HollywoodLifers? Who do you think would be a good replacement?
