The last person who thought Rosie O’Donnell would ever return to “The View” was Rosie O’Donnell. In the spring of 2007, the talk show host opted not to renew her contract with the gabfest created by Barbara Walters, even though her controversial opinions gave the program a ratings boost. Then, shortly before her departure, she got caught in a spectacular fight on live TV with conservative co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck that started over the Iraq War, but quickly turned personal — and went viral.
“The day it happened, I was definitely crying,” O’Donnell recalls. “I got my stuff and walked out.” She phoned her longtime publicist, Cindi Berger, telling her: “‘I’m never going back. You have to call and tell them. Call the lawyer. No matter what they say, I will not go back.” [more liberal drivel here]
To which no one at ABC screamed, Oh no! Now we’ve gone and done it!!!
“I think it’s going to be must-see TV,” O’Donnell says over a plate of cookies at Sarabeth’s on a New York afternoon. “My goal is to come in peace. And the contrast between what the show will be and what it was is going to be glaring.”
So the lithium regimen is working?
A plate of cookies? That’s it, Rosie, more sugar!
Rosie O’Donnell is a study in bizarre behavior and outlandish bomb throwing tantrums. Her fan club has had more defections than the old Soviet Union, yet someone always brings her back for one more psychotic episode.
Her drive-by on Tom Selleck in the 1990s backfired, leaving “The Rosie O’Donnell Show” ratings in the tank. She is on record as a 9-11 truther and for making utterly stupid comments like, “I do believe that it’s the first time in history that fire has ever melted steel“.
OWN‘s “The Rosie Show” bombed, Rosie magazine has been recycled for PETA flyers, and her Broadway play was rumored to be the first show in history to hire Actor’s Equity to fill seats. And O’Donnell has a penchant for making “not personal” statements that almost anyone without Tourette syndrome would think are very personal.
Okay, “The View” can’t resurrect Gracie Allen, but aren’t comedians supposed to be funny?
