With Joy Behar leaving The View confirmed, and Elisabeth Hasselbeck future still unclear, the show is already starting to look for a new talent. And no one wants a seat at the table more than former co-host Star Jones.
“Are you kidding me, Star is would love to return to the show,” one insider tells Naughty But Nice Rob. “She has contacted a few people asking for advice about how to best go about handling it, but at the end of the day it is Barbara Walters decision.”
Star, previously told us once before that no one could make Barbara do anything she didn’t want to do, when Star was hoping to get booked as a guest on the show to promote her book. And those words are just as true today.
“Star knows it’s a long shot but she is great on TV. She has learned a lot since she was last on the show. Having her return, if only as a guest host, would be a great PR move and get ‘The View’ a huge amount of buzz and attention,” adds a friend of Star’s.
However, if it were buzz Barbara was looking for – she would invite Rosie O’Donnell back – now that would be great TV.
Good luck Miss Jones, at Naughty But Nice Rob we miss you seeing you on the TV.
