Jenny McCarthy Steps Up to The View

Well, that’s certainly a new direction.

Reports confirm that The View has officially chosen Jenny McCarthy to fill the shoes recently vacated by Elisabeth Hasselbeck. Rumors had been swirling as to the identity of a replacement, with names ranging the gamut from McCarthy’s to more political choices like Michelle Malkin and Ann Coulter. It seems that the show has chosen to replicate Hasselbeck’s hair color rather than her politics, though. Her lone conservative perspective on the panel drew ire from critics and praise from fans, the latter of whom will undoubtedly follow her to Fox and Friends when she replaces Gretchen Carlson as co-anchor there.

McCarthy, meanwhile, boasts a resume including Playboy bunny (sorry, not linking that), MTV dating show host, author, anti-vaccination advocateadvice columnist, and actress. She isn’t an outspoken supporter of any political party, though she did date noted anti-gun enthusiast Jim Carrey
