Following rumors she’s leaving the hit daytime talk show, moderator Whoopi Goldberg, 60, reportedly inked a new, $2.5 million contract with ABC earlier this week to keep her on the series for Season 20.

“Despite telling everyone she was leaving the show, someone talked some sense into Whoopi about walking away and leaving all that money on the table,” a source told the Daily Mail.

According to Page Six, Michelle Collins, 34, is being fired from the show and ABC execs are already trying to replace her on the co-hosts panel. “It’s no secret. They’re so disrespectful, they were even auditioning people for her job while she’s there,” a source told the outlet, adding Michelle will announce her departure from The View this summer.
