When one door closes, another opens.
"I definitely am having a lot more fun," McCain exclusively revealed during E! News' Daily Pop on Thursday, Oct. 21. "It's just been nice honestly to be able to talk about something other than politics."
The daughter of late Republican senator John McCain detailed what led to her departure from the talk show. "I am actually a pretty sensitive person and there are people you love to hate, but it felt like towards my last season it just became 'We hate to hate her,'" McCain opened up. "I did feel a shift in my last season that there was no love coming from the audience, and that was a factor in why I left."
The self-described empath continued, "A lot of people freakin' hate me, I get it. But I come from a good place. I come from a place of just wanting to do a good job. I tried to do the best that I could. I was not always an angel: I have a temper, I'm dramatic, I'm involved in drama, always."
But, McCain's level of drama is no match for the reality TV sector: McCain could never picture herself joining a Real Housewives franchise!
For now, McCain is ready to stay far away from TV. "I really feel like my time is so done," she admitted.
And, McCain will never let infant daughter Liberty follow in her footsteps on The View. "I would chain her to my car and say 'Nooo!'" McCain quipped. "I would kill her. I want her to do anything except what we do. I don't want her to do anything in television."
