Sherri Shepherd talked about the shakeup on ‘The View’ during a guest appearance on ‘The Wendy Williams Show’ Tuesday, and may have accidentally leaked the departure of Elisabeth Hasselbeck.
When show host Wendy Williams asked her to dish about the dwindling panel of co-hosts on ‘The View,’ Sherri may have accidentally offered up too much information.
Shepherd said with gusto, “Oh my gosh girl, so many changes! I can’t believe it! The two back women are left. Usually they kill us off in the beginning.”
Williams pounced, “So if the two black women are left, then you’ve just confirmed that Hasselbeck is out.”
Her guest said emphatically, “No, I did not.” Wendy taunted, “She put her foot in her mouth!”
A slightly flustered Sherri said less enthusiastically, “She’s going to be there. We’re all going to be there next season.”
Joy Behar recently announced that she will leave the show when her contract expires in August and Barbara Walters has announced that she will retire in 2014.
Earlier this year Walters stated that rumors of Hasselbeck’s departure were not true. Shepherd and Whoopi Goldberg joined the co-hosting panel in 2007. Elisabeth has been a mainstay on the popular ABC show for the past decade.
