She hasn’t been asked to do it, but Roseanne Barr says she’d jump at the opportunity to take over Rosie O’Donnell’s spot on The View.
“I would love the chance to do that,” Barr told KVVU-TV in Las Vegas on Monday. “I’d love it. Yeah, definitely. I think I would do a real good job.”
Barr, who is known for being outspoken, says she’d “stir up some real good controversy,” which O’Donnell has often done during her year-long stint on The View
Barr’s name has been mentioned online and in the New York Post as a possible replacement for O’Donnell, who announced last week that she is leaving at the end of this season. However, Barr stresses that she has not been approached by the show’s producers.
Still, to those who have suggested her for the job, Barr appreciates the thought. “I just want to say thank you to them for thinking of me.”
