ET caught up with the women of The Talk to get their take on The View casting news.
"To me it's always fun to see changes," said program creator Sara Gilbert. "I think they do what they do really well and hopefully we're doing what we do well."
After losing Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy, ABC announced yesterday that Rosie Perez and Nicolle Wallace would be joining The View. The move comes after a down summer for the talk show, as The Talk beat The View over the summer in key daytime demographics.
Julie Chen explained part of The Talk's success, saying, "We're edgier ... It's not that we're rude. It's just that we're naughtier."
Following ABC's announcement, Rosie Perez gave a statement expressing her excitement.
"I am beyond thrilled, honored and completely surprised that I've been asked to join The View," said Perez, who will be the first Latina to be a regular on The View. "Knowing that I'll be in the company of Whoopi, Rosie and Nicolle, three very smart and engaging women that I have an immense amount of respect for, makes it even more unbelievable. The opportunity to connect with our nation's audience on a daily basis... icing on the cake! Very happy."
Wallace also expressed her gratitude, saying, "I am honored to join the tradition of compelling conversations that has been the signature of The View for the better part of two decades. I have watched The View for many years and now to be seated alongside three women that I have admired is both humbling and incredibly exciting."
The fifth season of The Talk launches September 8 on CBS. The View returns September 15 on ABC.
