It’s thought Michelle Collins’ “The View” departure wasn’t exactly her idea. Variety claimed the decision was all that of ABC executives, reporting that a reshuffle at the top unfortunately didn’t work in Collins’ favor. Insiders claimed the new execs at the network didn’t exactly warm to the comedian and supposedly weren’t fans of the way she would sometimes take Hot Topics off on a tangent. They were also reportedly none too pleased with the fact that Collins wasn’t too focused on political matters, as it was claimed ABC wanted “The View” to discuss more politics as things heated up between now former President Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. In addition to all that, Collins caused some controversy on the show that likely didn’t go down too well. She reportedly lost ABC advertisers, as she criticized nurses and made controversial comments about Carly Fiorina’s appearance.
ABC never confirmed the rumors about what may have led to Collins not returning for a second season with the show, but the network only had positive things to say about her in a statement issued to E! News. “Michelle is smart, opinionated and funny. She’s been a great addition to the panel this year,” the statement read.
