Jenny McCarthy 'In Serious Talks' To Host 'The View': Us Weekly

Jenny McCarthy is reportedly in the running to be the new co-host of "The View," according to sources.

"She is in serious talks right now," a source told Us Weekly. "Her show isn't quite working out, so she's definitely open to it."

Another source familiar with happenings on set said that McCarthy meshes well with the cast and crew of the show. "She's a good fit," the person said. "She may not be able to carry a show, but she works well with a group ensemble."

McCarthy has guest-hosted "The View" several times by now. In March, however, she denied rumors that she would be replacing Joy Behar as an official co-host, citing the show she is already hosting on VH1. Both she and Brooke Shields are rumored to be frontrunners for hosting "The View."

The show is headed for a major shake-up as it enters its seventeenth season in the fall. Behar — the only original co-host still with the show, besides Barbara Walters — is leaving at the end of this season. There have also been reports that Elisabeth Hasselbeck will be getting the boot, though both she and Walters have said she is not going anywhere.
