Abby Huntsman had announced that she would be leaving the set up at ABC's "The View" due to family responsibilities. Though her co-hosts understood her reason for leaving, they were sad to see her go, especially Meghan,

"I'm heartbroken you're leaving, but I can understand better than anybody how important it is to go support your dad."

Meghan added that she's very proud of and happy for Abby. It is understandable why Meghan feels very emotional about Abby's departure.

Both women have been friends since they were living in New York City and working together at Fox News. They have grown closer since then, spending time and sharing experiences together.

Many people behind the scenes believe that there was more to her surprise announcement

After Meghan's message to Abby on social media, the internet erupted with some tweeps responding by telling Meghan that they wished it was her and not Abby that was leaving the show.

One person said, "I wish it was you leaving" while a second person said,

"The View would be more without you, Meghan."

Abby's announcement came on the Monday episode of the daytime television talk show. She had been part of "The View" since 2018.

In her words, Abby described "The View" as being one of the most iconic shows on television, and said leaving it was a hard thing to do.

Though her reasons for leaving are to support her father, many people behind the scenes believe that there was more to her surprise announcement.

Many people who spoke to CNN Business said that Abby's departure is due to the toxic work environment that is present in the show, as well as Abby's soured relationship with McCain, due to their many disputes on the show.

Whatever the reasons may be, it is hoped that Abby would find fulfillment in all of her future endeavors.
