Could another cast shake-up be about to hit The View?
With television doyenne Barbara Walters set to retire in summer 2014, co-host Sherri Shepherd is “worried about her job” and has begun to look for other opportunities, a well-placed production source has revealed to RadarOnline.com.
“Sherri is quietly looking for new opportunities,” the insider dished.
“While it may just be a precaution, Sherri is worried she’ll be out of a job after Barbara leaves.”
Shepherd, 46, became a frequent guest co-host on The View in 2006 and eventually moved into the role as a permanent co-host in Sept. 2007.
“Before Barbara leaves, she’ll want to make sure the panel is perfect and Sherri is concerned that could mean letting a few people go,” the source added.
“Sherri wants to stay on television, in either a hosting capacity or a sitcom. She’s looking into various roles and putting her feelers out there. She’d love to have her own talk show, but that isn’t her focus right at this moment.”
