Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy bid farewell to 'The View' on last day of taping

By Gina DiFalco,

Monday will mark Jenny McCarthy and Sherri Shepherd’s last day appearing on ABC’s The View, with McCarthy exiting the show after just one year and Shepherd ending her 7-year run. Thursday’s taping was their last, however, since Friday and Monday are pre-recorded.

They both took time to say their goodbyes to the audience in the episode that will air Friday morning.

Before a highlight video of her year on the show, McCarthy thanked Barbara Walters and producer Bill Geddie, saying "I only took a little time but I definitely enjoyed every second of The View,” Ace Showbiz reports.

Meanwhile, it was a bit more difficult for Shepherd to bid farewell to the show. “This show was created by Barbara Walters and Bill Geddie and Bill recognized the need for a show for women, for us to be able to talk about us without interference,” she gushed.

She also posted a heartfelt message on Instagram along with this photo, calling it "the best... Most challenging... Tearful... Joyous...Intimidating...laughter filled... Fearful... Rewarding job I have ever had."

Shepherd confirmed her exit from the show in July, and that same month, ABC confirmed Rosie O’Donnell will be returning next season.

O’Donnell’s return was met with controversial comments from Elisabeth Hasselbeck, who she publicly feuded with on the show when they were on together.
