So Rosie isn’t leaving “The View” because of any on-set drama, controversy, or anything really exciting to write about. She is leaving because of money. I’m guessing they already pay her a lot to do her job so I’m a little peeved. I liked Rosie on “The View.” I think the show is going to be hard-pressed to find someone as news-worthy (or really gossip-worthy) as miss Rosie.
Here is here statement via ABC.
This has been an amazing experience, and one I wouldn’t have traded for the world. Working with Barbara, Joy and Elisabeth has been one of the highlights of my career, but my needs for the future just didn’t dovetail with what ABC was able to offer me. To all the viewers out there, I just want to say ‘thank you’ for opening up your hearts and your homes to me this past year. But you can always find me at rosie.com. Here’s hoping there’s more confetti for all of us going forward.
There are a lot of “we love Rosie” gushing from Barbra and the executives on ABC.com as well. They keep saying over and over again “we only thought she’d be with us one year.” Whatever.
