Drama over at ABC!
“Candi was so done with Tamron that she requested that ABC take her off the show,” an ABC insider spilled to Daily Mail, adding: “The environment that Tamron has created on her show is toxic. It is literally bleeding staff.”
The insider is squealing Carter is only leaving the show, but ABC is hell bent on keeping her around. The View creator Bill Geddie was also pushed out as producer last year.
“Tamron didn't like that Candi tried to steer the ship and had ideas that clashed with hers, because Tamron believes the only opinion that matters is her opinion,” the source continued. “When you work with Tamron, it's her way or the highway. Candi's now on that highway to a much better job away from the cattiness that is destroying Tamron's show.”
Carter’s abrupt departure could spell disaster for Hall’s chat fest, currently airing its third season, as she was the glue that held the show together.
“Candi is a strong executive who understands what makes news, pop culture and can handle difficult hosts. It's a real loss for the show, as now it's all Tamron, all the time,” they explained. “Candi came up with Oprah Winfrey and steered The View in the right direction when it was in freefall, she knows what she is doing.”
Current staff inside the ABC building are buzzing Carter could replace embattled producer Brian Teta over at The View after last week’s disaster involving Ana Navarro and Sunny Hostin. The cohosts were yanked from the air after falsely testing positive for COVID-19 minutes before talking with Vice President Kamala Harris.
The incident “embarrassed” ABC and has left them fearing they’ve ruined their good relationship with the White House. A separate source noted that ABC could create an entirely new job for Carter in order to keep her in the building.
