Abby Huntsman announced she is leaving “The View” on Monday.
She claims that she is leaving to go work for her father who is running for governor of Utah…but inside-sources say there’s more to the story than that.
Rumor has it that she actually leaving due to a horrible work environment at ABC.
Huntsman has reportedly been treated “like sh*t” and the environment on set is supposedly “toxic” for everyone and that’s the real reason she’s leaving the show.
That’s not really surprising…just by watching it on TV you can tell the whole thing looks miserable.
Abby Huntsman seems to be exiting The View at exactly the right time. On Monday, Huntsman announced that she will be leaving the ABC talk show to join her father John Huntsman Jr.’s Utah gubernatorial campaign, but our friends at Page Six report that the weeks leading up to her departure have been bitter and filled with drama. According to sources close to the situation, the conservative co-host is leaving due to the show’s “unhealthy” and “toxic” environment, which the network has reportedly refused to remedy. “ABC treated Abby like s–t, but everyone on the show gets treated like s–t,” a source told Page Six. “She was smart enough to do something about it.”
[…]According to Page Six’s Carlos Greer, Sara Nathan, and Mara Siegler reported that Huntsman’s father’s campaign “isn’t the real reason for her exit” from The View. Sources close to Huntsman report that backstage drama has created and “intense” and “unhealthy environment — just the way that things are handled during shows and how people deal with each other.”
“Abby made an issue [to executives] about the overall environment. She’s felt for a while that things had to change,” said the source, adding that longtime moderator Whoopi Goldberg has also voiced complaints about the vibe on set. “ABC treated Abby like s–t, but everyone on the show gets treated like s–t. She was smart enough to do something about it.”
A second source echoed that sentiment, telling Page Six that Huntsman described The View as “toxic,” but “ABC won’t do anything about it.” [Decider]
Now the questions remains…How much longer will Meghan McCain last? It’s rumored that she is on her way out the door as well.
And what #NeverTrump fake conservatives will they get to replace their outgoing frauds?
I’d imagine that Ana Navarro will now be a regular – that outta really make the show more toxic and ghastly.
