Sherri Shepherd Returning to 'The View' as Talk Show's Lead Contributor

Sherri Shepherd is reportedly returning to The View as a lead contributor on the show’s upcoming 19th season!

The 48-year-old entertainer – who previously spent seven seasons on the show – left last August after failing to come to terms on a new contract with ABC, Deadline reports.

The upcoming season will feature Whoopi Goldberg (the only returning host from this season), Raven-Symone, Michelle Collins, along with Candace Cameron Bure and Paula Faris. Sherri will reportedly appear in about 50 episodes, and will be leading a group of contributors including Stacey London and Molly Sims.

Candace Cameron Bure & Paula Faris Join 'The View' Panel

Candace Cameron Bure and Paula Faris are the latest ladies to join the panel of The View for the talk show’s upcoming season, according to Variety.

The ladies will be joining Whoopi Goldberg and the recently added Raven-Symone and comedian Michelle Collins.

Both of the new additions have other jobs that will complicate their schedules on The View. Candace is currently filming the upcoming Netflix series Fuller House through November. She will reportedly appear on the talk show for some weeks and then fly to Los Angeles to film the sitcom on other weeks.

Paula is the co-anchor of GMA Weekend and she will only work four days a week, Monday through Thursday, so she can keep her other position.

Candace is being courted for the “Republican seat” on The View while Paula‘s seat is considered the journalist spot.

Michelle Collins has officially been named as the new co-host of The View!

The announcement was made on Monday (July 13) and the 34-year-old comedian will take her official position at the table this September. She will make regular appearances until the show takes a hiatus in August.

“These past few months have been the most fun and exciting of my career, and I couldn’t be happier to join such an awesome, smart, accomplished and funny group of women. Ever since the age of 4 (and the height of 5’ 6”) it’s been my dream to host a talk show, and the fact that I now get to do just that every day with an amazing, hard-working team of producers, writers, cast and crew is beyond my wildest expectations,” Michelle said in a statement. “Many thanks to the people at ABC for inviting me to be a part of this team, and specifically to the great Barbara Walters and Whoopi Goldberg, whose support has meant the world to me.”

Comedian Michelle Collins to Join 'The View' as Rosie Perez's Replacement: Report

Comedian Michelle Collins, who has appeared on Bravo and VH1 shows, will be joining The View as a replacement for Rosie Perez.

Michelle will join Raven-Symoné, Whoopi Goldberg, and Nicole Wallace, who are all current hosts on the show. Michelle will reportedly be announced at a later date, Variety reports, as Rosie just said goodbye to the show on Wednesday (July 8).

The View has seen a number of hosts come and go over the past several years, including recently departed Sherri Shepard and Jenny McCarthy.

Rosie Perez & Nicolle Wallace Leaving 'The View' Next Season?

It looks like The View may have more changes ahead.

According to Variety, ABC is planning to reboot the show again for the fall, which may include changing up the panel once more.

Whoopi Goldberg and Raven Symone will reportedly stay, but the futures of their co-hosts Nicolle Wallace and Rosie Perez remain to be seen.

Apparently, the network has been unimpressed by their contributions to the show, and executives have been under pressure to rescue it from a ratings decline that began with Barbara Walters‘ retirement back in May 2014.

The View has averaged about 2.48 million viewers this past season, which is 16% lower than last year. There are some names on a short list of a possible rotating panel, including stylist Stacy London and model Molly Sims.

Rosie O'Donnell Explains 'View' Departure in New Video Blog

Rosie O’Donnell has released a “heartfelt” video blog to explain her decision for leaving The View in the middle of her first year back on the program.

The 52-year-old talk show host announced last week that she would be leaving the show, but on the Monday (February 9) episode, she didn’t mention it at all.

“Everyone wanted me to talk about it. I didn’t want to talk about it,” Rosie says in the new video, citing she already gave an explanation over the weekend.

“The truth is I had a heart attack two years ago and stress is very bad for heart attack survivors. You should minimize your stress, maximize your exercise, and control your diet,” Rosie said. “So that’s what I’m doing. I’m minimizing my stress by leaving The View and the stress that I’m having at home was not as easily remediable. It’s hard. Marriage is complicated and I’ve got five kids, four of them are teenagers and there’s lots of stuff going on at home, and lots of stuff going on at work. The only thing I can really control is the work, by leaving. I can turn that volume down all the way to zero.”
