Another co-host on “The View” may be on the verge of becoming the next casualty. The New York Post’s Page Six reports that Michelle Collins appears to be on the chopping block.
The report quotes an unnamed source saying: “It’s no secret. They’re so disrespectful, they were even auditioning people for her job while she’s there.”
Collins, who became a permanent panelist on “The View” back in July, reportedly plans to announce her departure this summer. Reports also surfaced this month that Whoopi Goldberg, who has been on the show since 2007, is ready to leave the show.
Raven-Symone, meanwhile, is also believed to be headed out, after joining the show full time in June 2015.
Sunny Hostin, who has been a guest panelist and joined ABC News this year, is likely to move into a full-time slot on “The View” next season, the Post reports.
A rep for the show downplayed speculation about the lineup, telling the publication: “What else is new? People love to speculate about the co-hosts. … We’re lucky to have terrific guest co-hosts fill in when our talented co-hosts are busy with other projects.”
The rep also said: “Reports that Whoopi signed a new deal are false.”
