Jenny McCarthy: New Co-Host on 'The View'

With the exit of Elisabeth Hasselbeck (and Joy Behar) from TV's 'The View', there has been much speculation about who will fill the shoes.

Today, the show's anchor and founder Barbara Walters announced who it is. Watch:

But... not everyone is happy.

Particularly, mothers of kids with autism.

In recent years, Jenny has become well known for her claims that vaccines cause autism. The best-selling author, has blamed vaccines for causing her son, Evan, to develop autism, both during an appearance on 'The Oprah Winfrey Show' and in books such as 'Healing and Preventing Autism: A Complete Guide.'

For her part, here is what Barbara Walters had to say about Jenny: "We are delighted that Jenny will be joining us as a permanent co-host on The View starting in September," Jenny said in a statement. "Jenny brings us intelligence as well as warmth and humor. She can be serious and outrageous. She has connected with our audience and offers a fresh point of view. Jenny will be a great addition to the show as we usher in an exciting new chapter for The View.''

In a statement, Jenny said joining The View was a life-long dream.

"I'm beyond thrilled to be joining Barbara and the other amazing women at the table," she said. "I look forward to helping make hot topics a little bit hotter and showing my mom that my interrupting skills have finally paid off."

Will you still tune in now that Jenny will be on?
