Kathie Lee & Hoda: Brooke Shields Army Wives Review
Brooke Shields has been in the spotlight her entire life. From working on television to starring in movies to owning the runway, Shields has done it all and now she can add Army Wives to her ever-growing resume of work.
In the seventh season of Army Wives, Shields plays Air Force colonel Kat Young, a tough colonel who clashes with her commander in the beginning of the series.
Shields said she had to learn a lot for her role in Army Wives. She said she has flown in huge Army cargo planes before when she was performing for troops oversees but she had never flown one before. The producers wanted her to get a feel for what it would be like to fly the real thing so they sent her to a training and simulation center where she learned how to fly the planes through a simulator. She told Kathie Lee and Hoda she could not believe how accurate and real the flight simulation felt.
She doesn’t actually fly the planes on the show but the producers wanted her to get a feel for it to make the show even more real.
Kathie Lee & Hoda: Brooke Shields New Host Of The View?
There have been a lot of rumors that Brooke Shields is going to be the newest host of The View after Joy Behar announced she would be retiring after this season. Although many critics are speculating on her hosting the show, Shields said she has only been asked to guest host the show a few times and no one has asked her to join the show permanently. She said all the talk about her becoming a host of the show is just a rumor…for now at least.
It might not be up her alley anyways. Shields said she feels the most at home when she is on a sitcom, although she does enjoy Broadway as well.
“It is a hybrid between cinema and the stage,” Shields said.
