You’re officially leaving The View this August after 16 years. How are you feeling as your final day approaches?

My departure is bittersweet. I’ll miss so many people, but it’s time to move on to other things—like finally getting to all those unanswered texts from Anthony Weiner.

What’s next for you?

I have plenty to keep me busy. Stand-up, movie roles and of course my pet project, marketing brassieres for women with mismatched boobs like myself.

They’ve announced Jenny McCarthy as the new cohost. How do you think she’ll measure up?

I’m sure Jenny will do great. If they had to replace me, I’m glad it was with someone equally ravishing and brilliant! She’s colorful, controversial and unpredictable. She’ll be a great addition.

What will you miss most?

Never being able to finish a sentence! Just to make the transition easier I’ve asked my husband, Steve, to repeatedly interrupt me during breakfast.

Will you watch once you leave?

Yes, as long as it’s not on opposite Hoarders.
