The View host Sunny Hostin got some big news. She landed a multimillion-dollar deal to co-host the show for three more years. This comes after fans were concerned about her earlier this week. Read on to learn more.
Sunny Hostin went missing from the round table
The View fans expressed their concerns over Sunny Hostin’s disappearance. She went missing from the show last Friday and this past Monday. However, Sunny made her big return to the dramatic table on Tuesday, August 2. Fans couldn’t help but notice that the 53-year-old was missing on the back-to-back days.
Sunny wasn’t the only one who was missing. Newbie Alyssa Farah Griffin also hasn’t been on the show either. This comes after she made her debut on The View last week. The two ladies heavily debated over the current political situation. Other fans noticed that Sunny also side-eyed her during a game of The $100,000 Pyramid.
But then Sunny was missing from Friday and Monday’s broadcast. Fans wondered if this meant she wasn’t returning to the show. They noticed she wasn’t featured in the Season 25 promos for the upcoming episodes. Some of those fans took to Twitter to express their concerns. Most of them wanted Sunny to come back.
- “Sunny???? Is she coming back?”
- “Sunny’s off #TheView.”
- “Ana is on today but not Sunny.”
Of course, not all of the fans were missing Sunny. They were relieved that she was absent from the conversation about Will Smith’s Oscar slap. The View hosts discussed Chris Rock’s reaction to the actor’s latest apology video. Some viewers would’ve been okay without hearing Sunny’s opinion on the heated matter.
The View host signs a three-season deal
Per Variety, Sunny Hostin is still going to be a part of The View. She just signed a deal that would allow her to host through Season 28 of the ABC daytime show. Sunny will continue to host with Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, and Sara Haines — all of which are returning next season.
According to the report, Alyssa will also return to her position as a conservative co-host next season, which starts in September 2022. Meghan McCain left the show in 2021. Since then, a series of guest hosts have filled her spot. Alyssa already has fans of The View threatening to boycott the series.
The Variety report also reveals that the show wanted to enter a multi-year deal with Sunny. They are focusing on locking down a deal with their hosts as the next election cycle ramps up for 2024.
