With rumors swirling as to who could be replacing Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy on The View, there's one outspoken lady who is tossing her name into the ring. NeNe Leakes spoke to ET about how her enthusiasm for joining the venerable panel.
"I would love to do a talk show one day. That's definitely on my bucket list," she said before listing her qualifications. "I already work with five or six women so I know how that can be. Working on The View is probably like working on the Housewives. I would love to get in there and chop it up with those girls."
Rosie O'Donnell is set to return for The View's 18th season and it's rumored that she has a clause in her contract banning any reality stars from co-hosting with her. NeNe, who has worked with Rosie in the past, addressed that by saying, "I would be kinda disappointed to hear that she's like, 'I don't want any reality stars,' when there was once upon a time she and I hosted Anderson [Cooper]'s show together and she really was like 'I would love to do a talk show with you.'"
"Everybody has their ideas about reality stars," she continues. "But the good thing about this, Rosie, is that NeNe Leakes is not just a reality star. I am a mogul, I am an actress, I am a producer, I am a clothing designer."
One thing's for certain: if NeNe were to have her own talk show platform, we can only imagine how that would escalate the feud between her and Wendy Williams.
