The Women of 'The View' -- Then & Now

"The View" says goodbye to yet another co-host.

Jedediah Bila announced that Monday, September 18 will be her last day on "The View."

The conservative panelist made the announcement at the top of today's show. Bila joined the show as a permanent co-host for the show's 20th season, after appearing as a guest co-host on Season 19.

"So, this is my last day at 'The View' and I want to thank these ladies. What you don't know about us, these ladies, we're friends," Bila said. "Sunny's tests, Sara, Whoopi you're my inspiration, Joy when I need comedic relief, this is where I go. So we're going to be friends no matter what. I want to thank you because I'm a little eccentric and you put up with me and this has been an amazing journey and I appreciate all of you."

"I want to thank the viewers, even the ones that write me the hate tweets," she continued. "This is what I'm here for, Im there to shake things up."

Bila added that she's got "some good stuff on the way," including a new book from Harper Collins and her wedding.

"This has been a really great experience. Mostly I want to speak to the viewers, we are nothing without you. We are able to do what we do because you invite us into your homes, this isn't about me, this isn't about us, it's about a conversation, it's about serious issues and it's about the fact that you care enough to hear what we have to say and that I appreciate more than any executive or any position I can ever hold," she added. "I appreciate the fact that you give me the time of day and a presence to make my voice heard. I hope you'll join me in all my future endeavors, wherever they are, and I'm excited."

"We rarely agree on anything, but I am honored to call you friend," Sunny Hostin said.

"It's great to have you here, we need to have somebody who disagrees," added Joy Behar. "It's never been personal and that has been good for the show."
