Barbara Walters announced Monday morning that television personality and actress Jenny McCarthy will be joining ‘The View’ as co-host.
With the departure of Elizabeth Hasselbeck, Joy Bauer and Walters own announcing she’ll be bowing out in 2014 it was only a matter of time before we learned of who’ll be taking their place.
On her official blog on Monday McCartney writes, “YUP, I’M DOING ‘THE VIEW’! When word got out that Joy [Behar] was leaving ‘The View,’ I knew that the timing of my desire and her departure might be serendipitous for me….I’m beyond thrilled … I look forward to helping make hot topics a little bit hotter, and showing my mom that my interrupting skills have finally paid off.”
On what Jenny Mac can bring to the table? Walters declares, “Jenny 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. Jenny will be a great addition to the show as we usher in an exciting new chapter for The View.”
If you’ve followed Jenny on any of her previous works, you’ll know, she can bring the laughs. She also has the energy of a 3 year old.
We actually think Walters may have gotten this one right. She’ll join Whoopi Goldberg and Sherri Shepherd on the couch in the next several months.
What are your thoughts CK readers, will Jenny make a great co-host?
