Bethenny Frankel to Take Barbara Walters' Place on ‘The View’?

Former ‘Real Housewives of New York’ star, Bethenny Frankel, may have lost her daytime talk show earlier this year to cancellation, but she may be offered something even more lucrative in the near future.

With Barbara Walters having retired from ‘The View’ in May, the popular morning show has an empty seat looking to be filled with an outspoken and intelligent woman, and according to a VH1 source, that may be Frankel.

Reports claim that Frankel is in “serious talks” to join the long-running panel discussion and interview show executive produced by Walters.

“The View is looking for someone to spice up the show,” a source tells VH1. “Someone with lots of opinions and a big personality and Bethenny is at the top of the list.”

Although many people view Frankel as a reality star, in addition to having starred in the ‘Real Housewives’ franchise, she’s also a successful businesswoman (Skinnygirl drinks) and author (‘Skinnydipping’). Apparently, she is “very interesting in getting back to TV” however.

The source also adds that Frankel is “telling friends that she thinks she can save ‘The View’.
