Rosie O'Donnell Returning to Daytime TV With Talk Show For the Oprah Winfrey Network

Do You Think Rosie Can Re-Create Her Talk Show Success?

Back in the day, I was a big fan of The Rosie O'Donnell Show. I loved O'Donnell's use of the word "cutie patootie," the random incorporation of kooshballs, and the fun Broadway production numbers. But once she left her talk show and later cohosted The View, she lost her reputation (and many of her fans) due to her very outspoken opinions. When did the so-called "Queen of Nice" get so bitter?

But today, the OWN has announced that it's bringing back O'Donnell for a "a fun, uplifting show with Ms. O'Donnell's playful and energetic style." "Uplifting" is a promising term; hopefully that means we'll be seeing a departure from her darker View days, and a return to the Rosie we once knew and adored. But will you be tuning in to find out?

Now that we've seen her on The View and all that bad press she received... I don't know if we'll actually buy her sweetness, because we know what lies deeper.. But who knows... we'll see...

If it is as fun as it used to be, it will be great. It's not the public perception I worry about - it's her own bitterness that makes me think she won't be able to do what she did so well again!
