Sherri Shepherd quickly walked back what seemed to be a big admission about the future of "The View" during an appearance on Wendy Williams' Monday show.

After some initial "wig talk," Williams asked Shepherd about the turnover on the show. Joy Behar and Barbara Walters have both announced they are leaving, and Elisabeth Hasselbeck, despite repeated denials, is still rumored to be potentially joining them.

"The two black women are left," Shepherd said. "Usually they kill us off in the beginning."

"So if the two black women are left, then you've just confirmed that Hasselbeck is out," Williams quickly said.

"No, I didn't confirm anything!" Shepherd said. "She put her foot in her mouth," Williams crowed.

"No I did not," Shepherd insisted, adding, "She's going to be there. We're all going to be there next season."
