Ivanka Trump is shooting down recent reports that she might be the newest co-host to fill one of the empty seats on The View.

“There’s zero chance I would do that,” The Donald’s daughter told Ryan Seacrest during his KIIS FM radio show on Tuesday.

Earlier this week, the New York Post‘s Page Six reported that Trump was among the candidates being considered to replace Rosie O’Donnell.

“I’m working on the sexiest projects around the world,” said Trump, who is the Vice President of real estate development and acquisitions for her father’s company. “So to me to be on a television show every single day at a designated period of time just wouldn’t work for my schedule.”

When Seacrest asked if she’d been offered the position, Trump replied: “I’ve gotten a lot of requests – let’s just leave it at that.”

“Have you had a conversation with Barbara Walters?” Seacrest asked her. “Not with Barbara personally, no.” She said.

As for Walters’s relationship with Donald Trump, which allegedly chilled after the blow-out between him and O’Donnell, Ivanka said it’s not an issue for her.

“I think Barbara Walters is terrific. I think she’s done a great job. She has had differences with my father,” she said. “I think his problems mostly lay with Rosie, and somehow that sort of boiled over. But I think Barbara’s great, and the show is much better today than it was.”

Despite saying she won’t accept a permanent co-hosting job, a temporary gig isn’t out of the question.

Asked if she’d consider sitting in on the show for a week, Trump answered: “That could be interesting.”
