Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy move on from The View

The hit talk show The View is not going to ever be the same again, because it's saying goodbye to two of its cohosts, Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy.

McCarthy and Shepherd filmed their final live recording on Thursday, Aug. 8, so the pair has already officially exited the show; however, they also appeared in a pre-recorded appearance on Monday, Aug, 11.

McCarthy was certainly overcome with emotion and she gave a beautiful, heartfelt goodbye to the show after being there for just one season.

"All I can say is, wow, I am grateful," she said before they played her best clips. "Second, I've continued to do what I've tried to do in any situation I have found myself in, which is to learn. I've learned from my mentor Barbara Walters and also from my dear friend, Sherri Shepherd."

"This is a job where there's a lot of craziness going on and Jenny always comes in with a smile and is one of the nicest people to work with in this business, so it's been so wonderful having you here for the first year," Shepherd also said about McCarthy.

Shepherd, on the other hand, has been a longtime favorite on the show and has enjoyed seven years there. Her goodbye message was aired on Monday, and it too was an emotional one.

"I'm so extremely and profoundly grateful for these best seven years of my life," Shepherd began.

She went on to explain that it has not always being an easy ride being on The View, and she has experienced her fair share of hardships during her time on the show.

"It was very painful," she said. "I cried in my dressing room for three years, going 'Why am I at this table? I don't know what I'm doing.'"

But when it came to her final moments, she was very hopeful.

"It is now time for my new view," she said. "I promise, I will see you again real soon."

We'll miss both of the ladies on the show, but hopefully the rumored new cohosts Nicolle Wallace and October Gonzales will do a great job at taking over. Whoopi Goldberg will be the only remaining cohost, while Rosie O'Donnell revealed that she will be returning.
