Jenny McCarthy: I Was Kicked Off The View Because They Wanted More Diversity

Josh Feldman, Mediaite, September 16, 2014

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.
