It's such a bummer these two can't get along!
The confidante went on to explain:

We'll miss you!
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
Raven-Symoné has said some crazy things over the years. Still, we're not 100% certain we can decide which of the starlet's statements is the MOST controversial thing The View host has relayed.
We mean, how do you even get away with supporting an anchor that compared Michelle Obama to an ape? Oof!
What do YOU think?? Do you know the most out-of-the-box thing the Disney alum has EVER spoken??
We figured since she's reportedly leaving The View, now would be a good time to cast your vote for the wackiest Raven-ism (below)! LOLz!
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:
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."
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:
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:
