Sherri Shepherd will no longer be part of The View.
“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 (executive producer) Bill Geddie for giving me the opportunity,” Shepherd said in a statement to The Wrap. “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.”
Multiple news outlets, including Variety, also reported the news.
Shepherd’s departure comes a little over a month after The View co-creator Barbara Walters retired from hosting duties.
Shepherd, 47, joined the talk show as a guest co-host in 2006. That became a full-time gig the following year. Prior to that, she had a career as an actress and comedian.
