The future is looking foggy at "The View," and it's not clear when the clouds will lift. The show suffered a blow in May when its co-creator and head honcho Barbara Walters retired, leaving Whoopi Goldberg as the lone voice of reason duking it out with nutty co-hosts Jenny McCarthy and Sherri Shepherd. Now it seems that Goldberg will be the last one standing, as both Shepherd and McCarthy are leaving - or were gently ousted, depending on who you believe.

According to, Shepherd and the network couldn't agree on contracts terms, whereas ABC didn't renew McCarthy's contract. "The View" is on hiatus until July 7, but it's expected that both will stay on the show until this season ends in August.

It sounds like some serious ch-ch-changes are in store at "The View," which might include a male co-host and possibly the exit of exec producer Bill Geddie. However, as long as Whoopi keeps us posted on all the comings and goings of her cats Oliver and Vinny, all will be right in the world of daytime talk shows.
