The women of The Talk aren’t biting their tongues when it comes to their feelings about rival The View’s revamped panel. During a recent visit to The Howard Stern Show, co-hosts Julie Chen and Sharon Osbourne dissed the ABC Daytime talk show for hiring Jenny McCarthy.


When Chen was asked if ABC made a mistake bringing McCarthy on—after Joy Behar and Elisabeth Hasselbeck departed—Chen answered she did think it was a mistake. Here's an excerpt:

"What made The View so popular and so good was that it was five different women—from five different walks of life—discussing politics."

According to Chen, The View is no longer doing what it once did best. She stated:

"What put them on the map and made them good and famous, they don't do that anymore. No one wants to hear Jenny McCarthy talk about the New York mayoral race or politics. They don't. That's not what you put Jenny McCarthy on for."

I guess McCarthy will be taking Chen off her Christmas card list this year!
