Raven-Symone makes a lot of claims — maybe none as uninformed as the time she promised to move to Canada if any Republican even gets nominated for President — but the latest on-air one could have an impact on her employment.
During a late “Hot Topics” run on Wednesday, the women of the “The View” griped about Sarah Palin landing a courtroom reality show, similar to “Judge Judy.”
At first, there was some confusion at the ABC desk as to whether or not the programming in question was scripted or unscripted. Fair question, since Palin is not even a lawyer, let alone a judge.
“If she’s acting, I quit the industry — again,” the former “That’s So Raven” star promised.
For now, it sounds like Palin will not be acting. The 2008 vice presidential candidate has signed a deal with the Montana-based production company Warm Springs, and will shoot a pilot to sell to a network. The team working on the show includes executives who helped develop “Judge Judy” and “Judge Joe Brown.”
Sans law degree, the format could still work, Joy Behar opined.
“She has one thing working for her — she’s very judgmental,” the comedian and fill-in moderator quipped, adding later: “It’s an embarrassment.”

“The View” also covered the recent Donald Trump/Ted Cruz Twitter beef this morning during “Hot Topics.”
Hulk Hogan (real name Terry Bollea) was the in-house guest on Wednesday. The WWE legend and his lawyer gave their first live interview after receiving a $140 million award in a civil lawsuit against online media giant Gawker, which published a secretly recorded sex tape of Hogan and his ex-best-friend’s wife.
Hogan and his attorney earlier gave a pre-taped interview to “Good Morning America.” Watch that one here.
Tomorrow, “The View” will welcome Gawker founder and managing editor Nick Denton, as well as former GOP candidate Dr. Ben Carson.
