Raven-Symoné, Michelle Collins, & Candace Cameron Bure Are Reportedly Leaving The View This Summer… And ABC Already Has Their Replacements!
2016 is officially the year of daytime casting changes!
Well, now it looks like The View wants to get in on the fun… because we're now hearing Raven-Symoné, Candace Cameron Bure, and Michelle Collins are all leaving the show between now and the Summer hiatus!
According to a Daily Mail report out Wednesday, a source close to production claims that ABC has already selected the replacements expected to join Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, and Paula Faris for Season 21, saying:
Whoopi Goldberg is bringing a new reality show to Oxygen, and it's all about transgender models.
The View panelist has revealed that she will serve as an executive producer on a new series about Slay Model Management, the first business to strike deals exclusively with transgender individuals.
The show, titled Strut, follows a group of the agency's talent who dream of becoming household names.
The 60-year-old explained why she feels the project will be an important addition to Oxygen's programming, saying in a statement:
"This show is important right now, because for all of the positive advances the community has made and continues to make, transgender is still a hot-button word that gets people hysterical. People tend to focus on the stereotype instead of the person, and this series will give viewers a unique opportunity to spend time with real people who are struggling with the same challenges we all face as we make our way through the world."
The series' stars hope to one day change the way society perceives beauty and gender.
Miz Goldberg also added that she wants to make people realize they should be more accepting of the transgender community, exclaiming:
Apparently, Miz Goldberg told close friends that she was "fed up" with the ABC program and that she wants to be off the panel. Oh snap!
One source, who is said to be a daytime TV veteran, dished:
"Whoopi has told those close to her she will exit the show."
Not to mention, the 60 year old is currently in negotiations with the network to extend her contract. So, perhaps the funny lady is using this bit of gossip as leverage? Curiouser and curiouser!
Nonetheless, it seems that ABC is desperate to have Whoopi stay as one confidant relayed:
Despite having one of the most exceptionally flawless bodies in Hollywood, Jennifer Lopez still has days where she feels "chunky!"
But when she stopped by The View on Thursday, the pop superstar probably shouldn't have used that word to describe herself — because the other panelists totally flipped out!
As the co-hosts were going through stunning Instagram photos of the 46-year-old, J.Lo commented on a selfie that showed her wearing a curve-hugging dress, telling the audience:
"I was a little bit on the chunky side there as you can see."
Ummm… in what reality are you even the least bit "chunky," girl?!
Thankfully, Whoopi Goldberg was there to knock some sense into Jenny — she even stood up and showed off her own body in comparison, quipping:
Whoopi Goldberg Is The Next Celebrity To Get Into The Cannabis Game — All In The Name Of Relieving Menstrual Cramps!
Ladies everywhere rejoice!
What makes her product different? It's all in the name of relieving women's menstrual cramps.
The 60-year-old admits she was motivated to pursue the cause because of having "grown granddaughters who have severe cramps" — so she's doing something about it!
The View host is partnering with "canna-businesswoman" Maya Elisabeth to launch a medical-marijuana company called Maya & Whoopi that will offer cannabis edibles, tinctures, topical rubs, and a THC-infused bath soak that it describes as "profoundly relaxing."
The company will also include products that only use cannabidiol (CBD) — which lacks the euphoric effects of weed, but still gives the consumer the health benefits of cannabis (so, everything but the high).
"For me, I feel like if you don't want to get high high, this is a product specifically just to get rid of discomfort. Smoking a joint is fine, but most people can't smoke a joint and go to work. This, you can put it in your purse. You can put the rub on your lower stomach and lower back at work, and then when you get home you can get in the tub for a soak or make tea, and it allows you to continue to work throughout the day."
The whole line is scheduled to be available in April — but for now (because of state medical-marijuana laws) will only be available in California.

Donald Trump Trashes The View Ladies On Twitter After Ben Carson's Credibility-Shattering Appearance! See What He Wrote!
We still can't believe Ben Carson sacrificed his career for this guy…
As you may have seen, Carson stopped by the ABC talk show on Thursday to explain his insane decision to endorse the GOP front-runner, but Whoopi Goldberg, Raven-Symoné, Joy Behar, Paula Faris, and Sunny Hostin weren't about to let him off easy!
Whoopi flat out called Trump a racist — which he very clearly is — and Ben still couldn't justify his support; although Paula clearly thought he must have been promised a spot on his cabinet.
Well, never one to let things die on their own, Donald took to Twitter shortly after the episode aired to trash the "brain-dead" ladies, saying:
