Here's great news to start your weekend: Rosie O'Donnell will NOT be returning to The View.
Following an exchange with Elisabeth Hasselbeck that was heated, even by their standards, the unabashed liberal - who embarrassed many of us within that political party - announced today that she won't be completing her contract on the show.
"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 posted on TMZ.com. "Therefore, we part ways, thank her for her tremendous contribution to The View and wish her well."
The Hollywood Gossip does not. We hope no other network gives this attention-seeker the outlet she so craves.
