Was diversity the reason for Jenny McCarthy's ousting at The View? She seems to think so.
McCarthy discussed her dismissal from the talk show during a Sept. 16 appearance on Fox's Good Day New York. She claimed higher-ups at ABC wanted to make The View more diverse, which is why she was canned. McCarthy stated:
"because [ABC] wanted to make sure the table was diverse. So they consider when Rosie [O'Donnell] was coming back it was too liberal, and they wanted a conservative and they wanted a Latina, so they got Rosie Perez and their Elisabeth [Hasselbeck], if you will, so that way it was a balanced table with more diversity."
