Rosie O’Donnell won’t be returning to the View, effective immediately. Although she announced her resignation a while back, she was supposed to stick it out until June 20. Of course, this announcement comes just days after her most heated “debate” with Elisabeth Hasselbeck. I use quotes because it’s not a debate, so much as them screaming over each other, and looking really angry while not making a lot of sense. I’ve watched the clip twice and I still can’t quite figure out what arguments are being made on either side.
Anyway, I’m sorry to see Rosie go. Say what you will about her, but she certainly put the View back on the public radar, which is more than I can say for the one-woman snooze machine that is Meredith Vieira.
