Barbara has retired…now Sherri and Jenny are out. Whoopi remains–more belowSherri Shepherd, 47, and her rep couldn’t reach an agreement with ABC on a new deal. Jenny McCarthy, 41, is being let go because the talk show “is moving in a new direction creatively,” according to People.com
Both co-hosts are expected to complete season 17, which runs through the first full week of August. They will not be on board for season 18, which starts in mid-September.
Emmy award winner Shepherd was frequently seen on the ABC show as a guest co-host in 2006 and became a permanent co-host in late 2007. McCarthy joined the show last September after the departures of Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Joy Behar.
