Jenny McCarthy: Why She’s Leaving ‘The View’ After Just One Season

With Jenny McCarthy‘s final day coming up on Monday, August 11, the show is giving thoughtful goodbyes to Sherri Shepherd, but Jenny doesn’t seem to be getting that same special attention.

On Thursday, August 7, Jenny moderated the show, which appeared to be a tribute to her time on the panel, but the episode felt more lackluster than commemorative — in fact, it almost appeared to be a slap in the face to the co-host of just one season, in comparison to past panelists Joy Bear and, of course, Barbara Walters. Jenny even forgot to mention Whoopi Goldberg (who will remain on the series) in her thank you speech, and later tweeted that her name was missing from the prompter.

Weeks prior, Jenny and Sherri confirmed their departures on the same episode, and Jenny announced that viewers should watch her next move…even if it competes with The View.

Hmm. Sounds like bad blood. So what’s the so-it-seems beef all about?

“Jenny McCarthy wasn’t very well liked at all by those working on the show or really anyone at all,” HollywoodLife.com has learned from a show insider. “Ever since she spoke about anti-vaccinations, she was done.”

Jenny McCarthy & Sherri Shepherd Reportedly Replaced By Two New Co-Hosts

Jenny may have landed her co-hosting gig on The View because of her outspoken personality, but it seems that may have gotten her in hot water, too, and now, she’s being replaced.

Nicolle Wallace, a political commentator, and another relatively unknown host, October Gonzalez, are reportedly joining Whoopi Goldberg, 58, and Rosie O’Donnell, 52, for the upcoming season, according to the Daily Mail.
