But Liberty, 34, and Rupert, 41, have nixed the idea and want to fix their problems more privately.
"When Dr. Phil's producers were putting together a list of potential guests for the new season, Liberty Ross and Rupert Sanders were both mentioned," a source told the site.
"They thought an exclusive interview with either one of them would be a ratings winner because the cheating scandal was the hottest showbiz story of the summer.
"But despite requests to both parties their interview request was denied. Reps for Rupert and Liberty said the two wanted to concentrate on counseling in an effort to make their marriage work.
"It was just something they didn't want to do at such a difficult time."
Liberty said in a confessional segment at Alexander Wang's runway show recently that she has "good people" and "two amazing children" in her life.
She added that she was "happy" and "lucky" but believes "we are all given lessons at certain times in our lives."
"Sometimes, when things seem really bad, you have to be able to see the good and learn from it and just move forward as graciously as possible," Liberty added.
