The View Cuts Co-Host Michelle Collins


And another one bites the dust at The View.

Co-host Michelle Collins has been fired from the morning talker, our sister site Variety reports.

Collins went through a trial run on the program before becoming a permanent co-host last fall for Season 19. However, starting in January, her presence was reduced to one or two appearances a week. She is expected to stay with the show through the end of the summer.

“Michelle is smart, opinionated and funny,” an ABC spokesperson told Variety. “She’s been a great addition to the panel this year. When we are ready to make an announcement about next season, we will.”

Despite the frequent co-host turnover at the gabfest, The View was renewed for Season 20 back in February.
