There has recently been a rumor that Sherri Shepherd, who was on the show from 2007-2014, is set to make a comeback. In an interview with The New York Post, the actress addressed this rumor saying, “I read that I was coming back, but as with all of the stuff at The View, you never know. Nothing is true until I actually see myself on the air, at the table. You can sign a contract, but until you are actually in front of that camera, it don’t mean nothing.”
Other names have also been speculated to be joining The View table, such as Cameron Candace-Bure, Molly Sims and Stacy London.
In July, The View announced that comedian Michelle Collins would be serving as co-host for the next season of the view, starting in September. Collins was given the position following Rosie Perez’s exit announcement.
In addition, co-host Nicole Wallace will be leaving after she is done this season. If you recall, our own Shanka Cheryl broke that story back in July and right before it became official. However, in Nicole’s case it wasn’t on her terms as Shanka also reported. Nicole recently opened up to Variety revealing she found out about her firing in the press. Nicole explained:
“I loved the job. I had no plans of quitting. I think I thought that I would learn somewhere other than Variety that I’d been fired. It shattered my naiveté about television. Listen, it’s all fair, I wasn’t wronged by anybody. But I was surprised to learn in the press about their decision not to bring me back.”
She goes on to explain her shock saying, “I had never had one note from anybody inside the entire organization during the entire season. No one said a word to me. May I should have seen it coming. Not after a single show, a single Hot Topic or a single interview. It was like being invisible. But not in an unpleasant way.”
Nonetheless, come September Nicole will be absent from the show’s cast, while newbies Michelle Collins and Raven Symone will be returning to add to the commentary.
LeBron, who recently starred in Amy Schumer’s comedy Trainwreck earlier this summer, owns a production company, which just signed a partnership with Warner Bros.
James revealed to Today’s Willie Giest that making movies is a “passion of [his].” He then opened up about the possibility of creating a sequel to 1996’s Space Jam, which starred Michael Jordan and the characters of Looney Tunes. Lebron explained, “We hope so. We ‘re definitely missing Bugs and Daffy and Tasmanian Devil and every last one of them, so hopefully we can do some great things.”
Although Warner Brothers has not officially announced any Space Jam 2 in the works, they did file for new trademarks in June.
