Rosie Goes Bye-Bye Early

I can finally think about watching The View again. Rosie is gone. Somebody up there likes me. As you can see I do not like Rosie and never have. (Even before she came out of the closet.) So I am trilled with her announcement today that she is leaving.

Rosie O'Donnell will not be coming back to The View, ABC announced Friday. "We had hoped that Rosie would be with us until the end of her contract three weeks from now, but Rosie has informed us that she would like an early leave," Brian Frons, president of ABC Daytime, said in a statement. "Therefore, we part ways, thank her for her tremendous contribution to The View and wish her well."

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

O'Donnell said: "I'm extremely grateful. It's been an amazing year and I love all three women." The move follows several days of speculation that O'Donnell, who was scheduled to leave the show when her contract expires in June, would not come back to The View following Wednesday's on-air blow-up with Elisabeth Hasselbeck.
