Could Sarah Palin join “The View”?

The former Vice Presidential candidate seems to express interest in a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter.

Asked if she has any desire to do a “a political talk show, either on TV, radio or the Internet,” Palin gave an interesting reply:

“Maybe. But the politics would have to be interspersed with a whole lot of fun and real life and inspiration showcasing American work ethic, because those topics are all pretty much the antithesis of today’s politics, which I find incorrigibly disastrous!”

She went on:

“I hear everyone recently got canned from ‘The View,’ maybe a show like that needs a punch of reality and a voice of reason from America’s heartland to knock some humble sense into their scripts. You know, someone willing to go rogue.”

As Gossip Cop recently reported, both Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy are leaving the show.

Prior to that announcement, Barbara Walters said the series “need[s] a conservative voice,” following Elisabeth Haselebeck’s exit last year.

But there’s nothing and no one — including Palin — officially in the works just yet.

A rep for ABC tells Gossip Cop, “Any specific names at this point are rumor and speculation.”

“No decision has been made and we are not to ready to make any announcements,” adds the spokesperson.
