****LATE WORD IS THAT SHERRI SHEPHERD REJECTED ABC’S FINAL OFFER; JENNY MCCARTHY DID NOT HAVE HER CONTRACT RENEWED.*******
Sherri Shepherd apparently got the boot from ABC’s The View, and then Jenny McCarthy got the other boot it seems.
The ‘firings’ were said to have been announced during a network meeting late Thursday afternoon, TMZ is reporting.
Jenny came on board to the female-dominated talk show last September, but not everyone was pleased with the chemistry and the uneven dynamics lead to her apparent dismissal.
Sherri let it be known she was exiting the chat show via a statement released to Deadline.com earlier on Thursday.
‘It’s been seven wonderful years on The View and after careful consideration it is time for me to move on,’ Shepherd said. ‘I am extremely grateful to Barbara Walters and Bill Gedde for giving me the opportunity.’
She added: ‘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.’
Chemistry is everything: The comedic star joined the ABC talk show last September but some felt the chemistry was all wrong
Barbara Walters already retired from The View in May, and evidently executive producer Bill Geddie may be turning in his keycard.
Jenny, at least, might be feeling some relief to what was obviously a hectic schedule.
The single mother often lamented on the show how hard it was to be a parent and work full time.
The bubbly blonde happily announced her engagement to actor Donnie Wahlberg on The View in April, so one can assume she won’t be crying over her lost position.
The former Playboy pin-up has been busy planning her wedding and finding the perfect dress to walk down the aisle.
Sherri, meanwhile, has been involved in a contentious divorce with husband Lamar Sally after abruptly filing papers to end their marriage on May 2.
‘I say you can’t beat yourself up when you know you’ve made the wrong choice in a guy,’ Sherri told Us Weekly at an event on June 10.
‘You look, you do some introspective work, and you try not to make the same mistake.’
