Now that Barbara Walters is ready to retire, a new co-host is needed on The View. Could the lucky lady be Bethenny Frankel? The Real Housewives Of New York City star certainly has talk show experience, but is it enough to fill Barbara Walters’ shoes?
Bethenny Frankel’s talk show didn’t last very long, but perhaps it’s all for the best. According to the latest round of Facebook rumors, the former Real Housewives Of New York City star could be moving on to big and better projects. She’s allegedly being considered as a potential replacement for Barbara Walters — talk about a huge honor!
According to a source for Naughty But Nice Rob, Bethenny’s outspoken personality would be perfect for The View. Apparently, the show needs somebody capable of spicing things up, or as Naughty But Nice Rob’s source puts it, “Someone with lots of opinions and a big personality and Bethenny is at the top of the list.”
Reps for The View are reluctant to talk about the current candidates for the show. A source told Rumor Fix, “You cannot replace an icon like Barbara Walters and that’s not what we are looking to do. However, we will at some point in the near future add a new voice to the panel.”
As with the rep for The View, Bethenny is not quite ready to say whether she’s been selected as a future panel member. The reality star seems ready to move on to other projects outside the talk show realm, so Bethenny’s Twitter fans should not get their hopes up just yet.
