The network says she will officially start in September when the daily talk show returns for its 19th season. But Collins will make regular appearances until the show breaks for a hiatus in August.

She joins moderator Whoopi Goldberg and panelist Raven-Symone.

Collins has been featured on VH1's "Walk of Shame Shuttle." She has served as a host on the syndicated talk show "The Gossip Queens," as well as being a daily correspondent on VH1's "Big Morning Buzz Live."

"The View" airs weekdays at 11 a.m. EDT.
