It’s official! In September, there will be a whole new view on The View when TV personality Jenny McCarthy joins Whoopi Goldberg, Sherri Shepard and Barbara Walters on the daytime gabfest, replacing Joy Behar.
After the official announcement, McCarthy released a statement saying that she was beyond thrilled to join the View table, calling the job a “lifelong dream.”
She says that she is looking forward to helping make hot topics a little bit hotter ans showing her mom that her interrupting skills have finally paid off.
“We are delighted that Jenny will be joining us as a permanent co-host,” Walters said in a statement according to USA Today, adding McCarthy “brings us intelligence as well as warmth and humor. She can be serious and outrageous. She has connected with our audience and offers a fresh point of view.”
