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.

Rosie O'Donnell should let the door hit her on the way out. And we hope it hurts.

The outspoken, pompous commentator first riled out celebrity gossip-loving feathers when she got into a tiff months ago with the adorable Kelly Ripa. Since then, Rosie has mocked Asians and blamed America for the terrorist attacks on 9/11.

Earlier this week, meanwhile, O'Donnell reportedly acted like a kindergarten child after an argument on The View.

After a heated discussed with Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Rosie allegedly trashed her dressing room in anger. Moreover, her chief writer, Janette Barber, was escorted from ABC studios after she was caught drawing moustaches on photos of Elisabeth hanging around the building.

To paraphrase Meredith Grey: Seriously? Seriously, Rosie?!?

Indeed, ABC confirmed that "photographs at 'The View's" offices were defaced," though it adds that the world's most offensive lesbian wasn't around when it happened.

As for the dressing room meltdown, ABC denies it. But O'Donnell continues to be cryptic about whether she's coming back next week, with her latest blog posting saying, "There is a point u must step away from the canvas as the work is done."

There's also a point where YOU need to spell like a grown-up, Rosie. That said, we agree that it's time for you to go. You'd made the canvas at The View uglier than Seth Rogen.

Fergie is one of many celebrities that loves her dog. And we love her for that.

So we mean no offense by the following canine comparison. We just couldn't help ourselves. Whether they intended to or not, it's hard to argue with the fact that Fergie and Rosie O'Donnell resemble a pair of pooches in these photos.

And just think, Ashlee Simpson thought looking like David Lee Roth was an insult.

Fortunately, readers can look forward to more enticing pics of The View hosts if Debbie Matenopoulos actually goes nude for Playboy.

In the meantime, you can enjoy pictures of other famous females that don't so much look like dogs as they are out simply walking them. Take Jessica Alba, for instance.

As far as the celebrity gossip - and, apparently, hard news - world was concerned, the announcement that Rosie O'Donnell was leaving The View was treated with the sort of attention usually reserved for the possibility of Britney Spears nude.

"Yesterday's announcement was a tad bit bigger than I expected," Rosie said as co-host Joy Behar read off a lengthy list of news programs that had discussed O'Donnell's departure.

"I just didn't watch it," O'Donnell said about the widespread TV coverage. "Once you buy into it, it becomes lodged in the hard drive of your brain. [But] to be breaking news on CNN?"

The attention-hungry host had a point. There are more important issues in the world, such as the Iraq war and the post-plastic surgery photos of Heidi Montag.

Instead, she said, after leaving the studio on Wednesday, 65 press crews were "attacking [my] car like I'm Lindsay Lohan or something."

O'Donnell also swept aside anything Donald Trump had to say about her, leaving it to Behar to discuss the remarks he made Wednesday.

"He went on every show and said we're irrelevant," said Behar, who was also personally attacked by The Apprentice star. "He said I have no talent. But that's okay, I know I have talent."

At least the show tried to make other news this week. It had that daughter-loving fool, Alec Baldwin, on the program.

What's happening to our favorite daytime hosts?

We just announced that Vanessa Minnillo is leaving Total Request Live.

O'Donnell, Rosie

And - breaking news from The Hollywood Gossip! - Rosie O'Donnell has just announced that she's exiting The View because she couldn't come to terms with ABC on a new contract. We're sure Rosie's recent anti-America comments didn't play a factor at all.

Meanwhile, Donald Trump is gonna need to find a new lesbian foe to do battle with now.

Of course, the debate will now rage on about who ought to replace O'Donnell. Fortunately, we don't think Star Jones returning is a possibility.

But we do have one suggestion for Barbara Walters to consider: Katie Holmes. The poor, deluded housewife needs an escape. The View could be it.

And the worlds of politics and popular culture collide once again.

Enraged that radio "shock jock" Don Imus has been officially sacked (a tragedy, truly), the attack dogs of the right wing have officially been unleashed on... Rosie O'Donnell.

Rosie Takes the Field

It's not even Bill O'Reilly trying to take her down this time. It's former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, one of Washington's most powerful figures before being indicted on multiple criminal counts and forced to resign.

On his blog, Tom writes a post stating "If the Left takes [Don Imus], We'll take Rosie." The controversial DeLay calls on conservatives to "protest and demand" that Rosie O'Donnell get the boot from "The View."

No doubt Donald Trump would like to see her gone. But DeLay uses Imus-gate to make a huge deal out of nothing, calling it a "concerted strategy" of the left wing to "unite to destroy."

Riiiiiiight. Because calling a women's basketball team a bunch of "nappy-headed hos" is completely okay and it's the liberal media that's making the whole thing overblown.

Come on, Tom. We're not huge Rosie O'Donnell fans ourselves, but don't you think you're reaching a bit here? Just listen to the sage words of the great Snoop Dogg* on the issue and everything will make more sense.

* - Segue Alert: While you're at it, check out this video featuring Snoop's tactful remarks about Bill O'Reilly, who he alleges tried to sabotage him.

Going further, DeLay issues a challenge to his fellow right-wingers: "If Don Imus falls to the pleas of political correctness, we're taking Rosie O'Donnell down with him."

Those be fightin' words. Rosie O'Donnell, naturally, shot back on her blog late last night, calling DeLay a "criminal" and telling him to "go away."

Frankly, we wish they both would. Along with Bill O'Reilly. And Star Jones. Snoop Dogg can stay around, though. Far too much entertainment value there.

Kim Kardashian vs. Ray J.

Heather Mills vs. Paul McCartney.

Rosie O'Donnell Pic

The Game vs. Vida Guerra.

With most good celebrity feuds, it's easy to pick a side. But who do you even root for when the gloves come off between the blubbering FOX News blowhard, Bill O'Reilly, and that annoying, delusional gargoyle (and The View) co-host, Rosie O'Donnell?

It's a damn good question. According to O'Reilly, who's gone off on the rotund one three times in the past week, Rosie O'Donnell is not just "nutty," she's the enemy ... of America.

Yeah. Rosie O'Donnell felt O'Reilly's wrath again yesterday night on The O'Reilly Factor, with Bill calling her a "radical" and "dangerous," even suggesting - as a financial newspaper did - that she's been spewing anti-American propaganda.

In his "Talking Points" segment last night, Bill O'Reilly picked up an Investor's Business Daily editorial calling O'Donnell "Tokyo Rosie" - a reference to "Tokyo Rose," the nickname American soldiers gave Japanese women who broadcast anti-American messages during World War II. Tara Conner had no comment.

Yikes. As hard as it is to pick a favorite in this dustup, we're guessing Donald Trump would second Bill's "view," while Snoop Dogg would eloquently tell O'Reilly to suck on...

Forget it. As of this posting, Rosie O'Donnell had posted no response on her usual soapbox, rosie.com. But give it an hour or two.

Rosie O'Donnell isn't a fan of American Idol.

The latest verbal smackdown from the host The View in regard to America's favorite reality show centered around Antonella Barba. Perhaps you've heard of her.

Rosie O

Because Idol canned former contestant Frenchie Davis (pictured here with Antonella) for her breast-baring snapshots, but kept current wannabe Barba despite hers - and because Davis is black and fat and Barba is, well, neither - Rosie went off on the show like it was produced by Donald Trump or something.

"It's weightist and wacist," said Rosie, sounding somewhat like a cartoon character.

Unlike her critique of the Tara Conner scandal, O'Donnell has a semblance of a point on this issue. But there are many sides to the story. In fact, here's Frenchie's:

"I think it's fantastic if American Idol has evolved and I think it's fantastic she won't have to go through what I went through four years ago," Davis told the New York Post. "But if the rules have changed, I believe there should be something to make up for the fact that I was humiliated needlessly."

Donald Trump is yesterday's news.

Rosie O'Donnell has set her insulting sights on something eve bigger than The Donald now:

Making Like Frank

American Idol.

Earlier today, The View co-host joined a chorus of other critics who have said the show is being too hard on the early contestants.

The show screened a clip of Simon Cowell insulting one singer, Kenneth Briggs, and calling him a "bush baby," then laughing with Randy Jackson and Paula Abdul after the contestant left.

"Isn't that what America thinks is entertainment?" O'Donnell asked. "To make fun of someone's physical appearance and then when they leave the room laugh hysterically at them â€" three millionaires, one probably intoxicated ..."

We hate to say it, but: Rosie has a point.

And she isn't alone. Media critics have also jumped on the show's cruelty like Britney Spears without undewear.

"Several moments from (Wednesday's) two-hour highlight-lowlight reel of Seattle auditions failed to pass my personal squirm test, and I know that I'm not alone," Entertainment Weekly critic Michael Slezak writes on the magazine's website.

Slezak points to the treatment of Seattle performers Jonathan Jayne and Briggs, saying he felt "fury rising within" him while watching the show.

Some visitors to the official American Idol message boards are speculating that FOX is playing a ratings game by stacking the broadcast with more excruciating performances than usual. It knows people love train wrecks.

Why else would anyone date Courtney Love?

Writes one: "I think they know how much people enjoy the bad auditions, and thought that by filling auditions with nearly ALL negative auditions that they'd be improving the show. Not so. I love birthday cake but if I ate it for every meal, it would get old."
