Sarah Palin Interested in Auditioning for ‘The View.’ She Says the Show Needs Someone Like Her, ‘Someone Willing to Go Rogue’

Could former Republican vice presidential candidate — and former governor of Alaska — Sarah Palin be one of the new co-hosts of "The View"?

Here's what Palin had to say about that possibility in an exclusive interview with The Hollywood Reporter's LIve Feed.

The interviewer, Marisa Guthrie, asked, "Any interest in doing a political talk show, either on TV, radio or the Internet?"

To which Palin replied: "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! It'd be so much fun to shake it up taking on issues that make audiences objectively consider all sides, and I'd do it with my own real-life groundedness, candor and common sense that I'm known for. Media needs that today, versus the condescension that oozes from TV and radio. 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 previously reported, a few weeks ago two of the co-hosts of "The View" were let go.
