Jenny McCarthy created a post today on Splash, where she talks about the exciting opportunity to join The View. With Hasselback gone and now Joy leaving the show, there was room for some new blood. But, what about her obligations with the VH1 network? McCarthy explains:

Fortunately, the executives at Vh1 also knew these opportunities don’t happen that often, and they allowed me to make the move with their loving support. It’s proof that I was working with some amazing people over there, and I will continue to do more with them — outside of talk — in the future.

So, when does McCarthy's gig on the ABC show begin? September 9th you can be sure that this sassy blonde will be spicing things up at the roundtable with Barbara Walters, Whoopi Goldberg, and Sherri Shepherd. So, what does McCarthy hope to "bring to the table"?

I will be doing everything I can to provoke conversation, make you think, make you laugh and maybe even spill the beans on what goes on backstage (like if I accidentally barge into Bradley Cooper’s dressing room in a towel).

Uh oh. Watch out, Bradley Cooper. Well, will McCarthy have trouble making the transition from Late-Night sex kitten to Day-Time co-host? She insists she's just as good in the morning as she is at night, no pun intended ... Well, maybe a little pun.

I might be moving from late night to daytime, but I’m just as fun with a mimosa as I am with a martini. I look forward to spiking your morning coffee on “The View” for years to come.

Hey, maybe The View will gain some more male viewers this season!
