The Talk’s Julie Chen Says ‘The View’ Is ‘Withering Away’: It’s a ‘Revolving Door of Hosts’

Battle of the daytime talk shows. The Talk's Julie Chen slammed The View during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live on Tuesday, December 13.

Last week, Candace Cameron Bure announced that she would be leaving the ABC series after two seasons. Two days later, Page Six reported from sources that creator Barbara Walters felt producers were ruining the show's legacy because of the constant cohost shakeups.

"I believed every word I read in Page Six," Chen, 46, told WWHL host Andy Cohen. "There were contradicting sides and I believed that all of it was true. There’s a little bit of truth to everything."

Walters launched The View in 1997 and retired from the show on September 23, 2016. Through the years, more than a dozen stars have taken over the five seats at the table.

"I do think that Barbara Walters is probably like, ‘This amazing show I created is now just kind of withering away with a revolving door of hosts that people can’t keep straight,'" the Big Brother host added on Tuesday night. "I mean, I should know all of the names of the hosts and I don’t 'cause it changes so often."

Chen has been serving as a moderator on CBS's The Talk since its debut in 2010. The series, which has a similar format to The View, also includes Sara Gilbert, Sharon Osbourne, Aisha Tyler and Sheryl Underwood.
