Christine O'Donnell has been making the rounds on various talk shows, chatting about all types of memories.
When she's not walking out on interviews, the Tea Party favorite can be found dishing on her new book "Troublemaker: Let's Do What it Takes to Make America Great Again."
But one of her stories has run afoul of the remembrances of the queen of interviews, Barbara Walters.
In her book, O'Donnell claims to have auditioned for Walters' show "The View" and was close to snagging one of the co-host chairs. “The interview with Walters went so well they drew up a proposed contract, but ultimately the job went to Lisa Ling," O'Donnell writes in her new book.
Only problem is, the folks over at ABC have no recollection of that ever happening.
The Joy Behar Show reached out to a rep for "The View", who responded with the following statement: "We have no memory of her and no record or contract nor does Ms. Walters remember meeting her."
Well that's awkward.
When Behar's guest host, E.D. Hill, pointed out the discrepancy to O'Donnell, the former Delaware GOP Senate candidate said “You can check with Bill Geddie we did meet we did have the interview but I guess they just chose to go in a different direction and I was okay with it because I do believe that all opportunities are not good opportunities.”
Geddie says he has no recollection of ever meeting O'Donnell.
Guess we can chalk this one up to having a different "View."
