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." 

As previously reported, there has been drama surrounding new cohost Jenny McCarthy, the 41-year-old model who replaced former co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck.
