The news broke after the ABC show's executive producer Candi Carter sent an email to the staffers on Friday, saying:

"I have some bittersweet news to share—Michelle Collins is leaving the show. A gracious presence on stage and off, she asked smart questions, made us laugh and will always be part of The View family. We wish her great success with some exciting new projects ahead.
Please join me in thanking Michelle for her hard work, great humor and many contributions this season to The View. She'll be in the office next week to say good-bye to you personally."

This is a somewhat surprising announcement seeing as how Michelle was only announced as a cohost about two years ago.

However, Variety had previously reported that Collins' eventual exit was actually not voluntary and

Kristen Bell, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Sarah Jessica Parker, & Many MORE Show Support With Their Singing Voices In 'Broadway For Orlando'!

This is the best news to come out after the Orlando shooting so far!

The LGBT community was rocked to its core early Sunday morning when 49 of our brothers and sisters were senselessly murdered while partying at Pulse Nightclub.

Authorities and politicians are currently fighting amongst themselves whether to call this a foreign or domestic terrorist attack, or whether to blame the deaths on gun control… but we know this was first and foremost a hate crime.

That's why it's more important than ever for everyone who identifies as queer — as well as our allies — to support one another in our time of need.

Luckily, the Broadway community could not be tighter with us gays, which is why we're happy to report that Broadway For Orlando is here to help!

Celebs like Kristen Bell, Sara Bareilles, Sarah Jessica Parker, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Idina Menzel, and sooooo many more will be raising money for the LGBT Center of Central Florida with a musical theater cover of Burt Bacharach's What the World Needs Now Is Love!

rGet the scoop on Strut!

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:

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:
