Breaking News: Rosie’s Out. Of “The View”.

April 25th, 2007 // 19 Comments

Rosie O’Donnell is officially leaving “The View”.

In a statement, Walters said: “I induced Rosie to come back to television on ‘The View’ even for just one year. She has given the program new vigor, new excitement and wonderful hours of television. I can only be grateful to her for this year. I am very sad that ABC Daytime could not reach an agreement with her for a second year. We will all miss Rosie on ‘The View,’ and hope she will be back with us often next season. She remains for me a cherished friend and colleague.”

O’Donnell said: “This has been an amazing experience, and one I wouldn’t have traded for the world. Working with Barbara, Joy and Elisabeth has been one of the highlights of my career, but my needs for the future just didn’t dovetail with what ABC was able to offer me. To all the viewers out there, I just want to say ‘thank you’ for opening up your hearts and your homes to me this past year. But you can always find me at rosie.com. Here’s hoping there’s more confetti for all of us going forward.”

Seriously, what do you think about Courtney Love? Or even edgier – a drunk off her ass Amy Winehouse. The housewives will love her!

    I don’t know…her replacement should be able to read a newspaper, not so sure CLove can do that. Bitch can’t spell.

    Kathy Griffin or Lizz Winstead would be great. But they still need Star Jones’ replacement. Maybe Whoopi Goldberg?

    Good riddance!!! Hopefully we won’t have to hear from this opinionated, hateful wench again.

    I think it’s a shame she is leaving.

    Whether you agree with her or not she got a whole group of adult females thinking. We are exposed ONLY to conservative ideas and opinions on television especially during the Bush years. Anyone who asks a question, does not agree or has a differing opinion is shut up and shunned.

    There are many people who have used the fact that Rosie is gay to attack anything she says or does simply based on that fact. Instead of solving problems in this country we turn on anyone with the audacity to speak publically of them.

    Rosie may not be the best communicator but many of her opinions are shared by many of us who love this country enough to recognize and try to correct problems. People need to learn to think for themselves, inform themselves and form opinions for themselves. We will still disagree but we have the right to and that’s the point, but you need to educate yourself to have an opinion. Otherwise you are simply repeating what someone told you to think.

    Take a trip outside the United States and you will find the rest of the world holds our leaders in contempt today. Take the time to figure out why.

    Linda, she sure did get people thinking and talking- I hadn’t heard much of anything about The View for quite awhile, other than it was boring and probably leaving the air…enter Rosie and suddenly The View is talked about again. She is definitely a pot-stirrer!

    I’ll bet Trump is a Happy Pappy today!!!

    He’ll assume he had something to do with it!

    Maybe he did.

    Or Maybe Disney decided her mouth is way too large for daytime TV. Good Riddence to bad Rubbish!

    Linda, I would hope that not many of us (if at all) would have agreed with one of her last opinions of berating those British soldiers for agreeing with Iran and saying they were wrongly in their waters!! How about if we go and hold a gun to her head and tell her she has to publicly apologize to Trump and tell the world she’s really in love with him. I’d bet she’d have no problem doing it if she thought her life was on the line!! She has just become a bitter, mean old lady; and she’s not even that old yet.

    Good move from ABC. Rosie’s too much of a bully to do an ensemble show. If she’s going to be on tv, it needs to be on her own show. Not that I’d watch, she’s too hateful for me.

    BAD BAD move ABC! she brought in ratings, controversy and dramarama, 3 key things on talk shows… are they crazy over there??? go rosie, you were fun to watch, i’ll take The View off my “season pass” list on my TIVO in June…=(

    Hallalujahhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!! Now I can watch the View again.

  11. Lostmyace

    Thank God that no talent cow is gone. How in the world did she even gain notoriety anyway. What a piece of garbage! Hopefully she will spin off of the planet, and we will NEVER have to deal with her again.

    THANK GOD SHE IS GOING!! SHE IS A PIG AND DISGUSTING TO WATCH ON TV. NOW I CAN ENJOY TURNING ON MY TV IN THE MORNING WITH OUT HAVING TO CRINGE IF ABC IS ON!! I JUST HOPE SHE IS NOT LEAVING THE VIEW TO HOST THE PRICE IS RIGHT- I HEARD RUMORS THAT SHE WAS BEING CONSIDERD FOR THAT SHOW- WHAT A SHAME IT WOULD BE TO RUIN SUCH A FUN SHOW WITH THAT SLOB…

    Ding Dong the Pig is gone…which ol Pig ? The Rosie Pig …Ding dong the wicked Pig is gone….

  15. Molly

    I am sad Rosie is leaving. Now The View will die like it should have along time ago. Cannot stand Barbara, Joy or Elizabeth. No one wants to admit it but Rosie saved that show. Alot of people sure like to talk about Rosie so I guess you all have been listening to what she has to say. Good Luck Ro!!!!!

    It’s a shame that the Jewish-controlled mass-media executives are taking Rosie off of the air in June. She had barely scratched the surface on the inside job of September 11th as orchestrated by elements working for and in concert with the United States government (Vice President Cheney, Larry Silverstein, insiders in NORAD, the Israeli Mossad, and the Pakistani ISI, etc.). Television news and talk shows have lost most of their credibility in this country. They have turned into nothing more than lies, half-truths, cover-ups, diversion, ans propaganda. ABC, you have lost me and many other viewers after the announcement of Rosie’s forced departure. Americans used to be proud of a free press and the right of free speech.

    I truly believe that any interest in The View since Rosie’s diatribe against The Donald has been similar to the “rubber-necking” that people do to see what happened in car accidents. Let’s get with it folks, each participant in that charade was going after the other to try to boost their ratings.

    It’s a sad sign of ourtimes that we, as a culture, are bemused by the anecdotes of a woman who, clearly, is in dire need of professional counseling. She has no business being on TV and in the public eye. If what comes out of her mouth is any indication of what is in her consciousness, there is a lot of soul-searching needed in order to arrive at any kind of healing.

    It was time for Rosie to be taken out of the mix at The View, but I still am not intereted in seeing that program after it had taken so long for them to stop dragging their feet to be rid of her.

    As for Barbara; time to retire sweetheart.

    Its about time that this foulmouthed fat slob with no intelligence got what she deserved. She even gives the liberals a bad name, as she is both opinionated and stupid, a combination which is hard to beat. The sad part is that this has also destroyed any credibility that Barbara Walters might have had, as she kept defending Rosies actions. Trump caught her in a baldfaced lie, after she admitted to him that Rosie was a problem.
