Meghan McCain Confirms The Real Reason She’s Leaving ‘The View’ After 4 Seasons!
Despite the very public feud with her cohosts, Meghan McCain graciously announced that she is leaving The View. Read on to learn the real reason why Meghan McCain is leaving The View…
CelebnMusic247.com reports that Meghan McCain was professional about her exit, complimenting her cohosts by calling them “strong, brilliant, intelligent, incredible broadcasters” who “are the most talented women on all of television.”
The reason behind her exit?
It’s simple really, Meghan’s official exit stems from not wanting to leave her D.C. home where she’s been broadcasting from since the COVID shutdown.
She also said it was her dad, the late Sen. John McCain, who encouraged her to work on the iconic show … and that it was one of the last things he told her before he died.
Meghan McCain Confirmed Her Exit From The View:
Meghan McCain said on today’s (July 1st) show:
This is going to be my last season here at The View. I will be here through the end of July to finish out the season. This was not an easy decision. It took a lot of thought and counsel and prayer and talking to my family and my close friends.
Meanwhile, TMZ has tried to spin that her exit was due to a series of nasty back-and-forths with her cohosts.
The gossip site claims Meghan felt it was too hard for her being the only conservative voice on the show and it had become too challenging, as she felt she was getting ganged up on every day.
The news comes a little over a month after Meghan and Joy Behar’s last major on-air blow-up — the one that prompted ABC News President Kim Godwin to step in and call a last-minute meeting demanding all of the ‘View’ cohosts chill with personal attacks. Godwin told the staff their personal attacks are coming off as toxic to the audience.
Our sources at the time also said ABC was getting flooded with pleas to fire Meghan over her latest tantrum and attacks on Joy … which is what sparked the virtual meeting.
We’re told It’s unclear exactly what reason she’ll give the audience for her departure, but make no mistake … it’s about the politics. Remember, she gave birth to a daughter back in September, so it’s possible she may also mention wanting to spend more time with her baby girl.
McCain will address her departure Thursday on the show and give the real reason for her departure. NOT The so-called TMZ version that everyone is taking from. Let’s NOT forget all the drama with Sharon Osbourne this past year.
