Host Jenny McCarthy left The View, and now she's explaining why.

In an interview today with Good Day NY, McCarthy was asked about her departure from the ABC talk show.

She said she is no longer on it, "Because they wanted to make sure the table was diverse. So they consider when Rosie was coming back it was too liberal and they wanted a conservative and they wanted a Latina, so they got Rosie Perez and their Elisabeth if you will, so that way it was a balanced table with more diversity."

The 41-year-old clarified that she has no hard feelings though and has a new gig lined up as she will be hosting her own radio show for SiriusXM Radio starting in October. Jenny teased that the show will have no limits by saying, "The freedom to say what you want is wonderful."

Most recently, McCarthy wed Donnie Wahlberg, 45, but she told Good Day NY why she isn't wearing the ring on her finger.

She shared what happened to that beautiful ring, "I've already lost the ring. We were staying in a hotel and you can’t have a wedding ring on… it's a little hard to get romantic with diamonds on your hand. I removed it and put it on the room service table and they came and turned down the room and the ring was gone… But you know what though? If you're gonna lose your wedding ring, you should lose it that way."
