Kirstie Alley wants to be on The View

Kirstie Alley Kirstie Alley wants to join The View. The former Cheers star is desperate to take over from departing co-presenter Joy Behar when she leaves later this year and has been in touch with the show's creator Barbara Walters about joining the team. A source told Star magazine: "Kirstie loves TV and wants badly to land a permanent gig - she tried to get a talk show deal on her own but didn't get any bites. She thinks The View would be a great fit for her brand of brash outspoken opinions. Kirstie loves the idea that she'll be able to take part in rapid-fire ad-libbing, which she's great at. She's so hungry for the job that she's been sending Barbara Walters audition tapes and buttering her up in gushy emails."

    I can see her on the show! Are there any other candidates in the running who are probably more suitable?
