Paula on the view

Paula Faris returns to ‘The View’ to discuss third miscarriage

Former “The View” host Paula Faris returned to her old stomping grounds Thursday to open up about suffering a third miscarriage.

Faris and husband John Kruger currently have three children: daughter Caroline Grace, 12 and sons JJ, 10 and Landon, 6. During her appearance on the daytime staple, the television journalist revealed that she’s always wanted one more child to make her family complete.

“I’m 44. I’ve always wanted four kids — maybe because I am the youngest of four. But that was my third miscarriage,” Faris said after Meghan McCain thanked her for being “an incredible source of support” after she suffered a miscarriage herself.

After realizing she miscarried for the third time during a Fourth of July family vacation, she invited her eldest into the bathroom and explained what was happening.

“I brought my daughter into the restroom with me,” she recounted. “I showed her what was going on and I said, ‘I just want to let you know, Mommy is … the baby is probably no longer viable. Mommy doesn’t feel any guilt. This is normal, it happens to so many women, it’s happened to me a couple of other times. When you get pregnant, it might happen to you, honey. And I want you to know there’s nothing you did wrong.’”

She added, “It’s important to grieve, but it’s also important to know that this happens to so many of us. She’s 12. She’s the perfect child, by the way! And then I have my boys, who are savages. God has a sense of humor.”

Paula Faris is out at both The View and Good Morning America Weekend, our sister site Variety reports. “To have time to cover stories in depth, Paula will leave at the end of this season,” said ABC News president James Goldston Wednesday.

“In four years at weekend GMA and three seasons at the Hot Topics table,” the exec added, “Paula has played an important role at both shows, offering an insightful and intelligent take on the big stories of the day. She’s been instrumental to their success.”

While continuing to contribute to GMA and appear on other ABC News programs, Faris will be prepping to debut a podcast on faith that will “explore what unites people of all backgrounds even in these divisive times.” Per Variety‘s article, the decision to vacate her positions at The View and the weekend edition of GMA was her own.

As yet, there has been no announcement of a replacement for Faris at either show. What do you think? Will you miss seeing Faris on the regular? Who do you suggest as a replacement on The View? Hit the comments.

‘The View’ Officially Names Sara Haines Co-Host, Paula Faris & More Also Returning to Season 20

It’s official. Sara Haines is boarding “The View” as a permanent co-host when Season 20 kicks off this fall.

Haines joins returning co-hosts Joy Behar, Candace Cameron Bure, Paula Faris, Raven-Symoné, and moderator Whoopi Goldberg, who will all be back for Season 20, ABC confirmed on Wednesday. Jedediah Bila and Sunny Hostin will also “appear frequently” throughout the season.

Haines, the lifestyle anchor on “GMA Weekend,” has been in talks to join “” since earlier this summer, as Variety first reported.

Bila and Hostin have been on “The View” as frequent guest panelists lately. Bila is known from Fox News and will lend commentary on a wide range of political and cultural topics, and Hostin will continue to cover legal stories as the senior legal correspondent for ABC News, which she joined in February.

Confirmation of the Season 20 panel comes after multiple tabloid reports surfaced that Faris would be exiting “The View,” though the network repeatedly shot down those rumors.

Ahead of the Season 20 premiere on Sept. 6, ABC will air a special with Barbara Walters, commemorating the historic season on Aug. 23. “The View: 20 Years in the Making” will feature behind-the-scenes stories, favorite memories from celebrity fans, and a look back at the show’s most talked about moments. Co-hosts from the past 19 years will appear on the special, along with Walters.

“As we prepare for season 20 of ‘The View,’ we will take a look back at its remarkable history,” said Walters. “In our primetime special, celebrating this event, you will see the legacy of the program. I am very proud of the show that I created almost two decades ago. We hope the viewers will take a little time to enjoy ‘The View.’”

Speaking on the upcoming 20th season, “The View’s” executive producer Candi Carter said in a statement: “We have such a smart, funny, and fearless group of women who bring unparalleled passion and opinions to the hot topics table every single day. We have an exciting season 20 planned and plenty of surprises in store.”

“Just when I thought I was out, they pulled me back in,” Behar said in a statement. “Plus, Steve was getting tired of applauding every time I gave my opinion. But I’m happy to be back home. And I’m looking forward to sticking my two cents into the hot topics, especially now that Hillary and the Donald are in the spotlight.”

The show also announced a rotating line-up of contributors who will make regular appearances on the show, including Sherri Shepherd, Padma Lakshmi, Stacy London, Ana Navarro and Molly Sims.

Paula Faris is leaving The View and Good Morning America and will take a new assignment at ABC News.

Faris had been a weekend anchor at GMA for nearly four years, joining GMA from ABC”s overnight World News Now, where she had been for a year.

Faris joined the The View panelists in summer of 2015. This season, she’s been appearing on the show mostly on Fridays.

In today’s announcement, ABC News president James Goldston did not name Faris’ replacement on either franchise.

In his memo to staff, Goldston said she will “cover the most consequential stories of the day, help lead the charge on breaking news and focus on key bookings,” appearing across ABC News platforms including GMA. Additionally, she will launch a podcast on faith for ABC News.

In an interview with People timed to coincide with today’s announcement, Faris said her decision to step back from current duties came after a “really tough miscarriage” caused her to “reposition my priority compass” and that, as a mother of three she is “excited to get my life back.”

In a tweet this afternoon, Faris said she would not miss the 3 AM wake up calls on the weekend.

Goldston’s memo, followed by Faris’ tweet:

Team,

I’m writing with exciting news about our colleague Paula Faris, who will take on a new role for us in the fall.

She’s expanding her reporting portfolio to cover the most consequential stories of the day, help lead the charge on breaking news and focus on key bookings. She’ll continue to be an important part of the GMA family and appear across all of ABC News, and she’s gearing up for the launch of a podcast on faith to explore what unites people of all backgrounds even in these divisive times.

To have time to cover stories in-depth, Paula will leave the weekend editions of GMA and The View at the end of this season. In four years at weekend GMA and three seasons at the Hot Topics table, Paula has played an important role at both shows, offering an insightful and intelligent take on the big stories of the day. She’s been instrumental to their success. The View is delivering its biggest audience in four years, and GMA Saturday is on pace to take the top spot for the 6th year in a row.

A versatile journalist and superb broadcaster, she’s delivered key newsmaking interviews, from Sean Spicer and Kim Davis to Tavis Smiley, and covered a wide array of events in politics, sports and entertainment, and, memorably, this year’s royal wedding.

She has a keen understanding of stories that resonate with our audience, and we’re looking forward to even more great work ahead.

We’ll plan proper send-offs for Paula at weekend GMA and The View in the weeks ahead. In the meantime, please join me in wishing Paula the best of luck in her new assignment.

James

Excited/grateful for the opportunity to cover big stories & talk to the people at the center of them. Thank you to the gracious teams at @GMA Sat./Sun. and @TheView Not going far but I’ll miss you. However, I won’t miss that 3am wake up on weekends! 😉 https://t.co/TlWagcRjpS

Paula Faris Is Leaving The View and Good Morning America for a New Role at ABC

Paula Faris may be leaving both of her current jobs at ABC, but the TV host will still be a fixture on the network.

Faris first signed on as weekend co-anchor of Good Morning America in 2014, then joined The View a year later. She’ll leave both at the end of August for a new role at ABC focused on reporting and breaking news.

“I’m really grateful that I’ve had the opportunity to work with some of the most brilliant minds on camera and off camera,” says Faris who says her decision to switch roles was for both professional and personal reasons.

“I’m excited to get my life back,” she says. “I have three kids (Caroline Grace, 10, JJ, 8, and Landon, 4,) and working at GMA Weekend and The View has been awesome, but I’m so excited to not go to bed at 8:30 or 9 p.m. on a Friday or Saturday night because my alarm would go off for work at 3:30 a.m. every Saturday and Sunday morning.”

Faris adds that after going through a “rough year health-wise” she knew it was time to make a change.

“What kicked it off is that I had a really tough miscarriage,” she says. “I feel like it was in that moment that really repositioned my priority compass and our family’s priority compass. I realized that my kids need me in the stands and on the sidelines, my husband and I need that time to reconnect.”

While the job change will allow for more family time, Faris is also working on a new project.

“ABC has really rallied behind a passion project of mine, which is to launch a faith podcast,” she says. “I’m a woman of deep faith and Christian, so I’m really excited to launch this podcast in September. We’ll be taking to people of all faiths and how their faith has shaped the direction of their life.”
