Comedian Michelle Collins has been named the new co-host of The View. The announcement was made this morning, complete with confetti and Jay Z’s Empire State of Mind blaring in the background. Collins becomes the 15th co-host of the show and will have a permanent seat when season 19 begins in September.
“I’m so excited and I feel so lucky that I get to come here and spend this time with you and I just want to say very quickly. Thank you to everyone who works on the show, cause it’s the most amazing group of people,” Collins said. “Everybody here is unbelievable.”
