Parting is such sweet sorrow. Jenny McCarthy and Sherri Shepherd couldn't help but get a little mushy during The View on Monday, July 7, their first episode back since news of their respective exits broke in late June. Taking their seats at the table with Whoopi Goldberg and guest host Ana Ortiz (of Devious Maids fame), the ABC stars confirmed on air that they would not be returning to the show once their contracts expired in August.
"We're sitting here, and there's a giant neon pink gorilla in the room," Goldberg said at the start of the hour. "We're going to deal with it."
