Rosie won't be back on 'The View'


Rosie and Elisabeth Hasselbeck

Donald Trump slams both `View' co-hosts

By DAVID BAUDER, Associated Press

Rosie O'Donnell has fought her last fight at 'The View.' ABC said Friday she won't be back on the show following her angry confrontation with co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck on Wednesday.

O'Donnell asked for, and received, an early exit from her contract. She was due to leave "The View" in mid-June.

"Rosie contributed to one of our most exciting and successful years at 'The View,'" show creator Barbara Walters said. "I am most appreciative. Our close and affectionate relationship will not change."

In a statement, O'Donnell said she was grateful. "It's been an amazing year and I love all three women."

Presumably, that includes Hasselbeck. The two exchanged bitter words on Wednesday over O'Donnell's opposition to the war in Iraq. They've frequently had snippy political exchanges during O'Donnell's year on the daytime chatfest, but never as long and loud as that one

It's about time that loud mouth Rosie is off the show. I stopped watching The View because I can stand how she is and the stupid comments she makes about people. I use to watch your show for the entertainment and good things your show brought to our homes but I stopped once she was on. Did you ever consider who is watching instead of ratings. Maybe next time you'll take that into consideration.

Thank God the fat-cow is out! People like that should not be on TV.
