RADNOR, Pa. (AP) — Cybill Shepherd, host of the new talk show ``Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus,'' says she's not sure where she's from.

``I definitely would be (from) Mars. I would say I'm Venus sometimes... I'd say I'm more from the moon,'' Shepherd tells TV Guide in its Sept. 30 issue.

Shepherd said the show, based on the John Gray's New Age bestseller, will be a combination of ``The View,'' ``Politically Incorrect,'' and ``Oprah.''

The former ``Moonlighting'' star said her reputation as a straight-shooter had been a hurdle in getting the show started.

``If I am the monster that my reputation has often said — which I'm not — then (the show's producers) might have been afraid I was going to take over in some way,'' Shepherd said. ``Basically I've been told what the subjects are, what the questions are ... It's been difficult, but it's getting better.''
