After 7 years, Sherri Sheppard will be leaving ABC’s popular daytime show "The View," along with Jenny McCarthy, who also announced that she will be leaving the show as well.

In a statement released tonight, Sheppard stated that: “It’s been seven wonderful years on ‘The View’ and after careful consideration it is time for me to move on…I am extremely grateful to Barbara Walters and Bill Gedde 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.”

According to Variety, there have been rumors since last fall that Sheppard was planning on leaving the show, and was “quietly looking for new opportunities."

“Sherri wants to stay on television, in either a hosting capacity or a sitcom. She’s looking into various roles and putting her feelers out there. She’d love to have her own talk  show, but that isn’t her focus right at this moment.”

As for McCarthy, it’s likely that she was pushed out of her job by the network, and the show’s producers, after several controversial statements - especially her vocal advocacy against vaccinating children - made her a target of outrage.

Of course, Whoopi Goldberg is expected to stay on the show.

    I agree. Sherri just constantly made lot immature and uniformed statements about things. She would then back track once she stuck her foot in her mouth, which of course made her come off as a judgmental hypocrite. I do like her apart from "The View". I think she is a good comedic actress and she is a good host for the Newlywed Game. She just needs to stay away from trying to debate religion and politics. I think she would be a good host along with Andy Cohen live on Bravo. She is a big reality tv fan. Maybe she can get a job being and after buzz host. Best wishes to her.
