Christine O'Donnell Hints at Book Deal, Reality TV, and Dirty Laundry

O’Donnell, whose penchant for TV talk show appearances during the 1990s became a popular fixation during the 2010 campaign, told the Tonight Show’s Jay Leno that a book deal and reality TV show could be in her future.

"The offers have been interesting," she said. "I am not necessarily interested in a reality show, unless it’s something like a 30-minute ad we did for our campaign that highlighted these issues…I would like to do something like a watchdog-type show," said O'Donnell, who also did not rule out another run for public office.

Reflecting on her loss to Democrat Chris Coons -– her third failed bid for the office –- O’Donnell said intra-party politics hurt her campaign.  Many party leaders refused to support O’Donnell’s candidacy, which was backed by Tea Party groups and Sarah Palin.  GOP Rep. Mike Castle, whom she defeated in the primary, also refused to endorse her in the general election.
