The View is down another voice.
Sherri Shepherd is leaving the ABC morning show after seven years, E! News confirms, with a source also telling us that producers have been quietly looking for replacements for her and Jenny McCarthy.
The source says the proposed overhaul came as a surprise to both women.
"It's been seven wonderful years on The View and after careful consideration it is time for me to move on," Shepherd said Thursday in a statement to Deadline. "I am extremely grateful to Barbara Walters and Bill Geddie for giving me the opportunity. I look forward to the business opportunities that lay ahead for me and I am incredibly grateful to my View family and my fans for supporting me on this journey."
