That news became even more surprising when Abby Huntsman revealed that not only was she leaving The View behind, but that this Friday's show is going to be her last. So, why the sudden exit? Luckily, it's not due to any behind the scenes squabbles or on-air offenses. Huntsman is going to help her father, Jon Huntsman, by consulting on his gubernatorial campaign in Utah. The elder Huntsman was governor of Utah from 2005-2009, and announced in November that he was trying for the seat again.
