Rosie O'Donnell has left The View.
Unfortunately, the round mound of sound is still within full view of celebrity gossip writers - not to mention viable news outlets - everywhere.
The latest focal point of the gargoyle's attention: Britney Spears. What's surprising is that the fallen star has the full support of the embattled talk show host.
Rosie O'Donnell sent a video message to Spears, welcoming her to the Cyndi Lauper show June 30 that will feature none other O'Donnell on the drums. Yippee.
"Britney, if you're watching, honey, you and me â€" we're gonna share, like, a moment, 'cause I love you, kid!" O'Donnell said on the video during a tour stop in Texas.
Spears' choreographer tells People that the pop star plans to join Lauper and others onstage at the Greek Theatre in L.A. June 30 for Lauper's "True Colors" concert.
She was going to audition two male dancers for the show, but Britney Spears failed to show up at the auditions - always a good sign.
O'Donnell says that's news to Lauper, though Britney Spears has been making "surprise" shows as she works on a new album, whose release date still has not been announced.
"If it is happening," says O'Donnell. "I'm thrilled, because I enjoy Britney."
Bet she would enjoy Britney Spears naked, if you know what we're talking about. We're talking about the fact that Rosie O'Donnell is a lesbian and thus likes the girl-on-girl action.Not that there is anything wrong with that in the slightest. Just saying.
In addition to Cyndi Lauper, the show is also scheduled to include Erasure, Debbie Harry, The Dresden Dolls, The MisShapes with special guest Jeffree Star and host Margaret Cho. Rosie O'Donnell is expected to perform a stand-up routine.
Hopefully, Elisabeth Hasselbeck gets a front-row seat.
Meanwhile, Britney Spears sent out a new mysterious message herself, posting it on the bottom of her Web site's homepage, reading:
"Mother to Grandmother, and my my, you're grand."
Yep, she's insane. Nothing much more to say about it.
