"Her rep has in fact been having conversations with senior executives at ABC News over the past few months about many things, including her participation in celebrating the 25th season of The View, and she appreciates all the interest in her returning," an insider told us. "Currently, she is in development on two food shows and her own lifestyle show, but she’d never say never to returning to her first television home."
