Could fans be enjoying a whole new view with Roseanne Barr?

That's the latest report circulating around as The View continues to search for a replacement after Rosie O'Donnell's sudden departure last month.

But if you ask the comedian herself, she's not even close to signing any contract. "I haven't heard about it," she told one follower on Twitter. "No one has contacted my representatives—but it's often rumored."

In fact, when one follower asked if she watched a recent discussion on The View centered around Obamacare, Barr said she passed because she's "too tired for TV." Yah, that may be a problem if you want to be a talk-show host.

Back in 2007 when O'Donnell first appeared on the show, reports circulated that ABC was interested in having the comedian join the team. As it turns out, the 62-year-old didn't think she would be a good fit.

"I don't know if I'd be a good replacement. Wouldn't they want someone less crazy?" Barr asked the National Enquirer. "Like calmer? That's not me!"

While producers try to find the next co-host, several Hollywood stars have been filling in as guest hosts including Raven-Symoné, Mario CantoneNaya Rivera, Michelle Collins and others.

One familiar face you definitely won't be seeing in that chair anytime soon is Elisabeth Hasselbeck.

During a recent appearance on the Rachael Ray Show, the current Fox & Friends host said she has no interest in returning to the famous table she visited for so many years. 

"I've done my time. I did my time, I was outta there," she explained. "You know when you're so happy where you are you can't think of being anywhere else? That time is passed; I was thankful to have the decade that I did there."
