We'll miss you!

After several daytime casting changes this year — and rumors of some upcoming departures on The View — it's now official that Michelle Collins will no longer be cohosting the hit talk show.

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

2016 is officially the year of daytime casting changes!

First we were surprised when Michael Strahan blindsided Kelly Ripa with the news that he was leaving Live! for a permanent position on Good Morning America.

Then we were absolutely shocked when The Real revealed that they had fired Tamar Braxton!

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:

Back in her Disney Channel hay day, Raven-Symoné was known for her not only her comedic chops but her musical talents as well!

And after a near decade-long hiatus from the recording studio, The View cohost surprised us by dropping two new tracks on Soundcloud!

The first track titled Cruise Control, is a smooth R&B track that the 30-year-old describes as a "story of sex and speed filled with ambient sounds and undertones of sexual frustration."

Sounds sexy!

The second song called Sarafina is on the more experimental side, which Ray says contains "eerie sounds of melodic, fantasy vocals describing a world that can only be named Sarafina…"

Hmmm, this one is giving us some serious Willow Smith vibes! Was she a producer on this track!? LOLz!

These songs are nothing like the singer's previous body of work — like the upbeat soundtracks for That's So Raven and The Cheetah Girls, as well as her last studio album in 2008.

But clearly Raven has evolved a lot since then, so it makes sense her music has, too!

What do YOU think of the new tracks? Take a listen (below) and see what you think!

It's nice to see a more vulnerable and honest side of Raven-Symoné!

In a video obtained by ET Online, Raven got emotional and candid about her coming out story for the "It Got Better" series, a project born from the "It Gets Better" movement. The mission of the important series is to help members of the LGBT community with self-acceptance and their personal struggles.

While we know Symoné had a longtime girlfriend prior to the vid's release, she has never been so open with her sexuality before this moment. In fact, the actress has always shied away from labeling herself, especially where it concerned her sexuality.

Now the television host is baring all, from when she first realized she was gay to how hiding her true identity ate at her "soul".

Speaking on her complicated journey, the thirty-year-old confided:

| Filed under: TV NewsDisneyWhoopi GoldbergRaven SymoneOscars

raven symone whoopi goldberg may leave the view

Forget Michael Strahan dipping from LIVE!, both Whoopi Goldberg and Raven-Symoné may be leaving The View!

ICYMI: Earlier this week, it was reported that the Oscar winner and the former Disney darling may be calling this season their last for their chat show. Whoa!

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:

Such a shame these starlets were amiss…

Raven-Symoné, Karlie Kloss, and Kerry Washington did not dress to impress during Saturday night's White House Correspondents’ Dinner — which makes us so sad!!

Do you agree they faltered from the fashion mark??

While all three beauties were averagely styled, there has to be ONE crowned worst dressed for nerd prom.

So we have to ask…
