‘View’ Cast Fired? Sherri Shepherd Joins After Rosie Perez And Nicolle Wallace’s Exits … Are More Host Changes Coming? (VIDEO).

Shepherd spent seven seasons on the show, even winning an Emmy Award with her co-hosts. Just one year after the popular comedian and actor left the daytime talk show when she and ABC could not come to an agreement over the details of her new contract, it is being reported that Shepherd will be back for the start of the new season in September.Former co-host Sherri Shepherd is in the final stages of signing on to return to the daytime talker as a lead contributor for the series’ upcoming 19th season.

Deadline Hollywood reports that in addition to Whoopi Goldberg, Raven-Symone, and Michelle Collins, ABC is close to securing deals with actor Candace Cameron Bure and correspondent Paula Faris to host the 19th season of the show. As first reported by Deadline, Shepherd will in a limited role with Deadline reporting the former co-host will appear in roughly 50 episodes of Season 19. Shepherd originally left the show in August last year alongside Walters and Jenny McCarthy and since then she has made her Broadway debut in “Roger and Hammerstein’s Cinderella,” did a standup tour and starred in TV Land’s sitcom, “The Soul Man,” according to the New York Daily News.

Her return is believed to be a part the show’s overhaul this summer as a way to build up ratings, which have plummeted following a rough 18th season, the first after co-creator Barbara Walters’ exit. Shepherd filed for divorce from Sally, 44, in May 2014 less than three years after they were married, and in July of that year Sally petitioned a court in Los Angeles for full custody of a baby the two were expecting via surrogate. Shepherd had no biological claim to the child as her egg was not used in the fertilization process and refused to be listed as the child’s guardian after he was born, refusing to pay child support or any medical expenses. A Pennsylvania judge ruled in April of this year however that Shepherd was legally the young boy’s mother and as such would be required to contribute to the child’s expenses. Whoopi Goldberg got in hot water for defending Bill Cosby despite his sworn testimony he gave admitting to giving women Quaaludes with the intent of having sex with them.

He has not been proven a rapist.” ABC legal analyst Dan Abrams sat down with Goldberg several days later and explained the basics of statutes of limitations, rape charges and the severity of the claims being made against Cosby. The co-host flip flopped and said “the information that’s out there kind of points to guilt.” Another riff this season was with Raven Symone and Candace Cameron as they got into a heated argument over a lesbian wedding cake video. And Cameron-Bure will split her time between New York, where The View is filmed, and Los Angeles, where she is filming the highly-anticipated Full House spinoff.

Cameron argued that the bakery was not discriminating against the couple which prompted Symone to declare “I refuse to associate with you right now.” Rosie Perez, Rosie O’Donnell and Nicolle Wallace were hired to shake up the panel last season, but O’Donnell left just a few months later to deal with her messy divorce. Perez, meanwhile, was nearly fired from the View cast in January and will officially leave the show next month. “Our friend Rosie Perez has decided to leave the show at the conclusion of this season to pursue full time her love for acting,” executive producer Bill Wolff wrote to The View staff when announcing Perez’ exit. “Stepping into the role of talk show host at the same time she has been starring on Broadway has been incredibly impressive.

Her failure to engage in dramatic arguments with her fellow co-hosts and her lack of pop culture knowledge apparently contributed to producers’ decision to let her go.
