Anthony Scaramucci is hoping to jumpstart his media career by joining The View as a co-host on this season’s inaugural “Guy Day Friday.”


After a 10-day stint as the White House Communications Director under Donald Trump, Scaramucci has decided to move on to other things. He first appeared on multiple late night shows speaking about his time in the administration, and now he will host this season’s first “Guy Day Friday.”

“I was trying to get him on the show,” co-host Joy Behar told Vanity Fair. “We’re paesans together, you know, so, I called him and we had a very interesting conversation. Unfortunately, he learned from the New Yorker interview how to say the words ‘off the record’ so I can’t tell you too much. Also I’m under F.B.I. surveillance at this point. But we had a great conversation. Very juicy information, but I can’t say it.” She continued, “He was like, ‘is this really Joy Behar from The View? My mother loves you!’ And in the middle of the conversation he said, ‘Can I call you back? My mother’s on the other phone.’ He’s like a real mammoni. You know? He’s an Italian boy with the mommy thing.”

Earlier this week, Scaramucci announced that he will also guest host TMZ Live on Sept. 18, as well as start his own media venture called The Scaramucci Post. His Twitter bio simply says, “The best is yet to come.”
