Rosie O'Donnell is "not sorry" to be leaving The View early.
On her blog yesterday, Rosie reacted to her decision to leave the ABC talkfest after having a major blowout with co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck earlier in the week. She had been scheduled to leave the show when her contract expires in June.
In her annoying, immature style, O'Donnell answered reader questions on her site. When a fan wrote: "Sorry UR leaving early! I miss U when UR not on so now I wont watch! Best of luck to you!" O'Donnell answered, "dont b sorry/ i am not."
Does anything else find it hard to take Rosie seriously when she writes like that? It's like Lindsay Lohan trying to convince us that she's clean and sober.
When another fan, Tony, asked: "Don't you want to do an interview something to clear the air?," O'Donnell replied: "no interviews/ u watched it happen/ b 4 ur eyes."
O'Donnell also produced a 13-minute video in which she discusses the incident and shoots down celebrity gossip rumors that she trashed the dressing room, saying: "I've never trashed anything, frankly."
She does acknowledge that a friend, who was a producer for The View, drew a moustache on a picture of Hasselbeck at show's studios. "It was only one photo, people, and it was a magazine cut-out. It was a cute little joke on the way out."
Meanwhile, Rosie said she's never tried so hard in her life to be someone's friend, but it was just wasn't meant to be between her and Hasselbeck. Sort of like Mary Jo Eustace and Dean McDermott.
As for her place on the show, O'Donnell said: "I was really just like a foster kid for a year. We considered adoption, but I didn't really fit in with the family, and now it's time for the foster kid to go back home."
The comedian and outspoken liberal also said she was most upset about the show's use of a split screen during the argument with her co-host. It did give The View a Jerry Springer-like feel.
