Jenny McCarthy named 'The View' co-host

"The View" shuffle continues: Less than a week after the departure of Elisabeth Hasselbeck, the show announced that Jenny McCarthy would join this fall. Expected, but maybe not quite this fast.

In any event, the statements:

“Jenny brings us intelligence as well as warmth and humor,” said Barbara Walters in a statement. “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.”

Jenny: “I’m beyond thrilled... I look forward to helping make hot topics a little bit hotter, and showing my mom that my interrupting skills have finally paid off.”
