Jenny McCarthy has no hard feelings about being booted from The View, but she believes she knows why it happened: she wasn’t diverse enough for the morning show.
And as for why she ended up leaving the show, McCarthy admitted The View wanted to go in a more diverse angle and her staying on would get in the way of that:
They wanted to make sure the table was diverse. So they consider when Rosie [O’Donnell] was coming back it was too liberal and they wanted a conservative and they wanted a Latina, so they got Rosie Perez and their Elisabeth if you will, so that way it was a balanced table with more diversity.
