After much speculation, Barbara Walters made it official Monday on The View. Jenny McCarthy is filling one of the seats on the ABC gabfest. In a statement Walters praised McCarthy.
“Jenny brings us intelligence as well as warmth and humor,” Walters said. “She can be serious and outrageous. She has connected with our audience and offers a fresh point of view. Jenny will be a great addition to the show as we usher in an exciting new chapter for The View.”
Us Weeklyreported last week that McCarthy was in serious talks to join the show.
