Default Rosie O'Donnell Gone?

Rosie O'Donnell's Latest Rant Leads to Resignation Rumors
Wednesday, April 25, 2007

Rosie O'Donnell's bawdy humor while emceeing the Matrix Awards on Monday may result in her leaving "The View."

There is strong buzz in Hollywood that O'Donnell will announce Wednesday that she is signing off from the ABC show, TMZ.com reported.

If it happens, it's likely O'Donnell will stick it out through the end of the season, TMZ says.

O'Donnell's antics occurred Monday in front of 2,000 people at an event feting New York's most accomplished women in media at the Waldorf-Astoria Grand Ballroom.

The chat-show host dropped the F-bomb as Barbara Walters lowered her head and covered her face with her hand. She also concluded a rant about Donald Trump by grabbing her crotch and shouting a profane epithet.

Resignation Rumors O'Donnell said she was sad when Trump called her "disgusting" and "fat" because it was always her dream to turn on "an old, bald billionaire."

The annual luncheon of N.Y. Women in Communications — which honored Cindy Adams, Meredith Vieira, Joan Didion and Arianna Huffington, among others — featured as presenters News Corp. Chairman Rupert Murdoch, Joy Behar, Nora Ephron, Martha Stewart and Sen. Hillary Clinton.

Also on hand were 17 high school girls who won scholarships to pursue their dreams of careers in media.

"I was offended by how vulgar and common O'Donnell was," Robert Zimmerman, a Democrat active in progressive causes, told the New York Post's Page Six gossip column. "It was especially inappropriate with young people present."

Brandon Holley, editor-in-chief of Jane magazine, told the Post, "I wasn't personally offended, but I thought it was fun to watch other people be offended."

Among those in the crowd were Rudy Giuliani's wife Judith Giuliani, his ex-wife Donna Hanover, Judge Judy Sheindlin, Helen Gurley Brown, Geri Laybourne of Oxygen Media, Jane Friedman of HarperCollins and Hearst president Cathie Black.

O'Donnell's publicist, Cindi Berger, told the Post: "When you ask for Rosie, you know what you're getting. She's not a shrinking violet. She's a stand-up comedienne. She says things that are provocative."

N.Y. Women in Communications, however, was happy with O'Donnell. The group's managing director, Beth Ellen Keyes, sent an e-mail to her handlers saying, "Rosie was fabulous. Please let Rosie know how much we appreciated her being there. She was just great," the Post reported.

At least somebody in that crowd has some values. Much like with Alec Baldwin, you stay classy Rosie.

She was OK when she was the cutzy person, but when she started opening her mouth about politics, she lost her appeal.

Maybe if she leaves the View, she will finally drop off into obscurity where she belongs.

Unfortunately, something that big and loud can never be obscure.

On a serious note, I'm sure she will get her own show. Ratings will be fine for the first year and then it will bomb much like her first show.

It's official. Tubby Tuba is leaving the View. Wonder who else she'll take aim at and piss off before her final show? It seems that Bawbaw Wahwah is upset that Rosie is leaving. Tata Big Mouth!

(CBS) NEW YORK ABC has announced that Rosie O?Donnell is leaving ?The View? after only one controversial season.

The network wasn?t able to come to terms on another contract with O?Donnell. However, the host announced Wednesday that she will be back to guest host next year. "I'm not going away I just won't be here everyday," O'Donnell said on "The View" Wednesday.

O?Donnell said in a statement that ?my needs for the future just didn?t dovetail with what ABC was able to offer me.?

?This has been an amazing experience,? she said, ?and one I wouldn?t have traded for the world.?

Her last day will be sometime in the middle of June.

Now we just need to get rid of Walters and Viera and the View won't totally suck.
