After months of speculation, JENNY MCCARTHY has confirmed that she’s joining “The View”. Her first day is on September 9th . . . when the show launches its 17th season.
In a blog post, Jenny said, quote, “Yup, I’m doing ‘The View’! . . . I might be moving from late night to daytime, but I’m just as fun with a mimosa as I am with a martini. I look forward to spiking your morning coffee on ‘The View’ for years to come.” Jenny was hosting a late-night show on VH1 . . . but it sounds like the network let her out of her contract so she could take this gig. The ratings for that show weren’t great anyway.
BARBARA WALTERS released a statement saying, quote, “Jenny brings us intelligence as well as warmth and humor. She can be serious and outrageous. She has connected with our audience and offers a fresh point of view.”
