Is Rosie O' Donnell's preventing reality stars from co-hosting The View? Rosie reportedly has a clause in her new contract that bans reality stars on the show. ET recently caught up with Real Housewives of Atlanta star Nene Leakes to get her take on the latest Rosie rumors.
"I would be kind of disappointed to hear that she's like, 'I don't want any reality stars,'" Nene admits to ET.
Nene, who was a guest co-host with Rosie on Anderson Cooper's now canceled daytime talk show Anderson Live in 2012, adds, "Once upon a time she and I hosted Anderson's show together and she really was like 'I would love to do a talk show with you.'"
That's not all the reality-star-turned-actress had to say to the former talk show host.
"The good thing about this Rosie is that Nene Leakes is not just a reality star," she quips. "I am a mogul, I am an actress, I am a producer, I am a clothing designer."
Leakes is certainly proving her power these days with the launch of her new clothing line, "Nene, by Nene Leakes" on HSN.
Reports of Rosie's reality star ban don't come as much of shock considering her former frenemy Elisabeth HasseLbeck was a contestant on Survivor: The Australian Outback in 2001, before joining The View panel in 2003.
Rosie O' Donnell returns as co-host of The View with moderator Whoopi Goldberg for Season 18, beginning this fall. ABC has yet to annouce who will replace outgoing co-hosts Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy.
