While Meghan McCain is publicly insisting that she is in no rush to return to TV after leaving The View, insiders tell Radar that Meghan is already in talks to return to Fox News.
“TV is a drug. Once you have been on a daily show it is almost impossible to walk away. Most people that have left ‘The View’ have tried to return to TV on different shows and networks, however, almost all of them fail – except Meghan who has been welcomed back with open arms by Fox News,” insiders tell Radar.
McCain’s first TV interview since leaving Joy, Whoopi, and the gang around the table at ABC was with Sean Hannity on Fox, signaling what is about to be announced.
“There is not a signed deal in place right yet, but both Meghan and Fox have been made it clear that they want this to happen,” insiders add.
“Meghan wants a new TV home that supports her and welcomes her views in a way that ABC never did. She needed a little break to recover from the toxic work environment at The View, but is now ready to return and show those women that they didn’t win by pushing her out. Meghan wants revenge.”
“I knows what women supporting women looks like, because I had it when I worked at Fox News,” McCain told Hannity. “I had a sisterhood at Fox that I lost at The View."
Meghan left The View back in August after months of speculation of behind-the-scenes fighting between the cohosts. She is set to release an audiobook Bad Republican that talks trash about the show.
"I kind of feel The View is like when the guy who has a bad reputation wants to date you and you're like, 'I'm going to be the one to change him. That's what The View is to me. I was like, 'I'm going to be the one to change this. I'm going to be the one that's going to help the culture and whip it into shape and all these things.'"
"I really loved debating politics. I actually really love fighting, as long as there are rules. I don't like when it's personal, and it started getting really, really personal," she shared.
In her book, Meghan reveals she feels her cohosts enjoyed when she took time off to give birth. "I think they liked not having me. I think they liked not having someone who would fight with them or give an unpopular opinion. I was very insecure about not being missed on maternity leave. I felt it. I felt like they didn't miss me."
"For 25 years, The View has been a platform on air and behind the scenes for strong women," a rep for the show said in response to Meghan's accusations.
