With Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy being replaced on The View, NeNe Leakes is happy to throw her name into the running. Leakes spoke to ET about her excitement to join the panel of women.
“I would love to do a talk show one day. That’s definitely on my bucket list,” NeNe said. “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 will return for The View’s 18th season and it has been reported that she has a clause in her contract banning any reality stars from co-hosting with her.
“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,'” NeNe said.
“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.”
