Nicolle Wallace was one of the former co-hosts who had a relatively short tenure on “The View,” which has seen various cast changes since its inception in 1997. The current panel includes Whoopi Goldberg, Sara Haines, Joy Behar, Ana Navarro, Alyssa Farrah Griffin, and Sunny Hostin, all set to return for the next season.
In 2014, Wallace joined the show as the right-leaning voice, but her stint only lasted one season before producers decided to part ways. Unfortunately, she learned about her departure from a Variety article, leaving her surprised and disheartened about the way it was handled. Wallace openly expressed her disappointment over the years, considering her departure a personal matter.
Since leaving “The View,” Wallace has found success in her commentary roles. She returned to MSNBC, where she had previously served as the White House Communications Director to President George W. Bush. Her main role has been hosting “Deadline: White House,” which premiered in 2017. In 2022, MSNBC expanded her program with a spin-off for Peacock called “Deadline: Special Report,” focusing on mental health topics.
Despite her exit from “The View,” Wallace has made occasional appearances on the show, including a segment discussing the midterm elections in Fall 2022. She maintains a positive relationship with her former co-hosts, particularly with Whoopi Goldberg, whom she considers a great friend. Their bond has remained strong, with Wallace expressing admiration for Goldberg and recalling their close working relationship during their time together on the show.
