Why did Abby Huntsman leave The View?

ABBY Huntsman is a journalist and television personality who rose to prominence on MSNBC and NBC news.

She was a View panelist from 2018 to 2020.

Why did Abby Huntsman leave The View?

Huntsman claimed the show was 'toxic' and staff 'rewarded people for bad behavior.'

It was reported in 2020 that Abby was "thrown under the bus" by View executives after suddenly quitting the show.

However, Abby said on a new episode of her podcast I Wish Somebody Told Me that working on the show was Toxic.

“I’m never going to write a tell-all book" she declared.

She said “executives in charge” cared most about “was all about money and the tabloids…

"You would see people act in ways that were not okay, that was very much part of the toxic environment of The View, and here we were going on the air criticizing others for toxic culture.”

Abby added of the relief after her last taping following her quitting the show: “When I was walking out of the building that day, I was living again.

“I could breathe and feel myself breathing. I was present and I hadn’t been present for the almost two years I was there.”

The 33-year-old reportedly refused a request from the ABC show's bosses, to issue a statement denying that there's a 'toxic culture' on the panel show, reports The Daily Beast.

The behind-the-scenes drama amped up, after Abby's shock on-air announcement 24 hours earlier, and multiple news outlets described the show's atmosphere as "toxic".

Is Sara Haines re-joining The View?

Haines is set to return to The View as a full-time co-host for season 24.

For a while, it’s been just Whoopi, Meghan, Joy Behar, and Sunny Hostin, but Sara has come on as a guest co-host on and off over the last few months.

With the Good Morning America spinoff, she joined after first leaving The View now canceled, Sara is taking back her permanent spot on the show, according to Variety.

Drama and feuds between the hosts have long been commonplace, but viewers will likely see more of it when Sara, 42, returns to the show, as a source told DailyMail in 2017 that one of the reasons she left was because of Meghan.

The insider said: “Sara is such a positive person and brought so much joy to the show. 

“Her infectious energy was refreshing to most producers because she created a happy environment on set in the midst of chaos.

“But Meghan just wasn't feeling Sara at all and treated her like she didn't exist most days.”

The hosts at the time would also go for drinks after work and hang out without Sara, which the source said would really make her feel uncomfortable and left out.

They said: “Sara made light of the incident on air, but she was really upset by the whole thing.

She has a really wonderful relationship with both Joy and Sunny and felt as though they were picking sides. Her feelings were definitely hurt.”
