Surprise, surprise. Rosie O’Donnell has opened her big mouth again to bash her former View co-star Elisabeth Hasselbeck as well as Donald Trump.
It all happened aboard the cruise (for gay and lesbian families) organized by O’Donnell that went from New York City to a private island in the Bahamas. Reportedly there were 1500 people on the ship that heard Rosie’s little tirade.
This summer, one of the hot ticket tours we’ll be seeing quite a bit of is the True Colors tour, hosted by Cyndi Lauper. And Britney Spears’ aspiration to be part of the action has Rosie O’Donnell excited.
The ever-famous Rosie Blog included a loving message to the “Toxic” singer. "Brit, if you're watching, honey, you and me – we're gonna share, like, a backstage moment, 'cause I love you, kid!"
Last week marked the final days of Bob Barker’s career as host of popular daytime gameshow The Price is Right. And there’s widespread speculation over who should replace him. It looks like Rosie O’Donnell may try her hand at the hosting duties.
Rosie O’Donnell is looking to her next career move after having left the View last month. And TPIR is definitely on the list of possibilities. "If they asked me, I sure would," she wrote in her blog.
With her departure from The View coming three weeks early, Rosie O’Donnell has left a Rosie-shaped-hole in the cast roster at the hugely popular talk show. As producers scramble to find temporary replacements for the outspoken co-host, the permanent replacement question has come up. Who will replace Rosie? There are several options.
There’s no denying that Rosie was the type of personality that had enough edge to bring in ratings. Her water-cooler appeal will be tough to recreate. But it’s possible, according to The View’s producers.
As a follow-up to the Elisabeth Hasselbeck story we ran yesterday, there have been some developments in the relationship between The View and Rosie O’Donnell. The outspoken co-host was scheduled to depart from the show on June 22nd, but now she will not return “after the Memorial Day weekend,” according to ABC’s website.
Regarding the early departure, Brian Frons, ABC’s daytime television group president, said that the decision was all Rosie. “We had hoped that Rosie would be with us until the end of her contract three weeks from now, but Rosie has informed us that she would like an early leave,” Mr. Frons said. “Therefore we part ways, thank her for her tremendous contribution to ‘The View’ and wish her well.”
The CBS show “The View” has been especially entertaining as of late. First Star Jones announces her departure from the show a few days early, to the obvious surprise of Barbara Walters. Then Rosie O’Donnell gets Star’s spot, despite mixed feelings from the other co-hosts. And now Rosie is kicking the crap out of View co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck on the air.
Rosie and Elisabeth have been at odds for awhile, though. I mean, come on; you take ultra liberal Rosie and crazy-conservative Elisabeth and put them at a table to discuss current events? Of course sparks are gonna fly. This time they flew like none other...on a split screen no less.
