Jedediah Bila, the sole conservative-leaning panelist who joined ABC’s “The View” last August, announced today that she’s leaving the show.

The news was also confirmed in a staff memo sent out by the show’s executive producers this morning.

“So, this is my last day at ‘The View’ and I want to thank these ladies,” Bila said of her co-stars/on-air sparring partners Whoopi Goldberg, Sunny Hostin, Joy Behar and Sara Haines.

“What you don’t know about us, these ladies, we’re friends,” Bila said. “Sunny’s texts, 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.”

Bila, 38, who said to “stay tuned” for new opportunities on her horizon, including a book she’s writing, thanked the show’s fans.
