Sherri Shepherd Speaks on Leaving ‘The View’ [Video]

Rumors have long circulated about Sherri Shepherd’s departing The View—all confirmed in a statement Shepherd issued weeks ago. The actress and comedienne has been mum about her decision on the show until yesterday’s episode (July 7). Sherri Shepherd—alongside other departing host, Jenny McCarthy—was on the verge of tears as she officially announced to all their viewers that she would be leaving The View at the end of the season.

“You guys know that I often talk about my faith. I’m a woman of faith and seven in the Bible is the number of God’s completion. And I’ve been here seven years, and my time at The View is complete.”
