article imageBreaking News: Rosie O'Donnell Is Leaving The View

By Lisa Angotti     Apr 25, 2007 in Entertainment
Reports are that Rosie O'Donnell will announce her resignation from The View Wednesday. Is it a ploy to get us to watch the show, or does TMZ.com have the story right?
Is it game over for Rosie O'Donnell?
Rumor has it that O'Donnell will announce Wednesday morning that she will be leaving her post as co-host at The View.
TMZ.com has confirmed that it is receiving "strong buzz" from industry insiders that the story is true. Representatives for the show are not commenting, but CBS has also picked up on the story, with more outlets sure to follow.
Is this another publicity stunt to gain more viewers? Did an angry Donald Trump leak a rumor? Or is the story true?
If the rumor is true, O'Donnell is expected to stay on the show through the end of this season.
I, for one, will be interested to see. I'm not a huge fan of Rosie's, and I believe a lot of the "fights" she picks are publicity driven. However, she has done a tremendous job at increasing ratings for the show. As talk show host Conan O'Brien says, "You just can't buy the type of publicity Rosie is getting for The View."
Would producers really let that kind of publicity go?
Editor's note: Since my original report Tuesday night right as the news was breaking, Rosie did announce that she would be gone from the show, as of June. Her reason? She says she was unable to secure an agreeable contract. In other words, she wanted more money, or they fired her.
