Barbara Walters is desperately trying to save her daily talk show The View, and she thinks she just found the perfect person to revamp the program.
In the wake of Rosie O’Donnell’s sudden departure, reports say that Walters would like disgraced White House intern Monica Lewinsky to become a full time panelist on the show.
“Barbara believes that Monica, 41, could make The View competitive and compelling and while a lot of Washington’s elite may scratch the show off its must-visit press list, the younger demographic of online users would tune in daily to see what she had to say,” an anonymous source told Daily Mail.
There are a few problems with Lewinsky joining The View. Namely, it would mean that potential 2016 candidate Hillary Clinton and her husband Bill would likely never appear on the show again. Walters, however, doesn’t seem to care, as she is convinced that Lewinsky is the only person that can save her show.
“Barbara has been like a godmother to Monica ever since their infamous interview in 1999 following the Bill Clinton scandal. She’s always believed Monica got the short end of the stick in the court of public opinion and has tirelessly defended her on the show over the years,” a source close to the show said.
