The View: Nicolle Wallace to Exit

Nicolle Wallace The View

For those playing The View Bingo at home, you can now put a chip over “Nicolle Wallace leaves.”

The political commentator, who joined the ABC talker last September, will not return as a full-time co-host next season.

Per our sister site VarietyWallace’s exit is largely due to her lack of pop culture and celebrity knowledge, as well as a failure to dissent on political topics.

According to the site, Wallace has been offered a guest contributor position for next September’s Season 19, but has yet to decide if she will take it. A rep for The View did not immediately respond to a query about Wallace’s departure.

It’s been a tumultuous few weeks for the daytime series: Rosie Perez, who was also brought on as a co-host last fall, recently announced she will leave the show in August. Actress Raven-Symoné and comedienne Michelle Collins, meanwhile, have been brought on as permanent co-hosts.
