Get a load of this.

Sarah Palin, former Vice Presidential hopeful, has some candid advice for “The View,” which appears to be going through some growing pains, having recently lost its queen, Barbara Walters, as well as two of its hosts, Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy. Whether they were technically fired remains a mystery — but the show says it wants to go in, ahem, a different direction.

Turns out, Sherri is going through tough stuff as virtually every main part of her life is exploding. Just this morning, TMZ reports that she’s dumping her dream house after she dumped her husband and the show dumped her. A lot of dumping, indeed, why not more?

She also basically casts herself as the perfect replacement for Shepherd and McCarthy.

“Media needs that today, versus the condescension that oozes from TV and radio,” she said of the “commonsense real-life groundedness” for which she is known in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter. “I hear everyone recently got canned from The View, maybe a show like that needs a punch of reality and a voice of reason from America’s heartland to knock some humble sense into their scripts. You know, someone willing to go rogue.”

Meanwhile, Palin doesn’t even watch much TV. She says she prefers America’s great outdoors.
