It's Official: Rosie Leaving The View

It's Official: Rosie Leaving The View

As rumored, this morning Rosie announced that she will be leaving The View. Obviously, Donald has already called into any radio show that will have him and claimed responsibility for her "firing" (though that's not how the girls positioned her departure). Below is the clip of her announcement. It's sweet, and then it gets annoying...and then Rosie plugs her blog...and then she tries to pick food out of Barbara's teeth. Naturally. Here are Rosie and Barbara's official statements:

  • From Rosie: "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 Here's hoping there's more confetti for all of us going forward."
  • From Barbara: "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."

As if that's not an exciting enough week on The View, the girls have lined up a doozy of a guest for Friday. Alec Baldwin himself will be coming on the show to discuss "parental alienation." That should be interesting.

Good, maybe we'll hear about her less. Skye - I her you and I agree that it's good that she is passionate about important issues. But, I almost think she does more harm than good sometimes by alienating more people than she induces to care...

I'm not sure how I feel about Rosie. I like how outspoken she can be on certain topics, like gay rights and child abuse. But she can also be very obnoxious, and on a structured show like The View, she seems even more abrasive. I don't think The view, or even television, is the right forum for her. Maybe a radio program would be best for someone as opinionated as she is.

On a completely random note... Is Elisabeth pregnant? That dress is pretty loose fitting and she looks like she's gaining a little (not in a bad way)... anyone think so? DId I miss abother post that she was?

Hey are you happy ilove2ski? I am getting a funny little feeling you did not like her? LOL!!!

Rosie started to go off the deep end. She started treating the show like a personal place to spew ONLY her views. No matter what the topic.. she started and finished it!! A little one sided?

while i do not necessarily agree with her all the time and i think she does more harm than good, i cant help but be a little sad by this she was willing to say things to no one else would say she was willing to be "overly vocal" while others kept their mouth in fear of public backlash or losing their jobs. ho hum the thought police are winning ************************************************************ Indentured servant a slave to slave, thank god for my hopeful heart and for mutual feelings

It is not a news show.. but when you discuss news you need to be correct. She's so against lying but finds it fine to do so?

Oh, I know it's not a news show, but that is where a lot of women get their info. Kind of like college kids getting their news from the Daily Show. It happens. I personally LOVED her on that show. Her craziness converted some away from far far left liberalism. Call Donald what you want, but I'm glad someone gave back the crap she dished out. Like I said, the ONE time I liked him.
