Did Rosie Want More Than Her Fair Share?

Rosie O’Donnell‘s leaving The View over allegedly amiable contract disputes. Or, that’s what she told viewers yesterday. Most people assumed the real tension came from her undying feuds with powerful men, such as Donald Trump.

Today, NY Post speculates that perhaps the disputes weren’t so amiable, nor were they as masculine. Some assert O’Donnell may have been staging a contract coup against alleged ally, Barbara Walters. Scandaloso!

“They’re talking [publicly] about how they couldn’t come to terms . . . but . . . her leaving had nothing to do with that,” an insider said.

While Walters is the creator and co-executive producer of The View with Disney-owned ABC, the business side of the show is controlled by ABC brass.

Had ABC officials chosen, they could have bought out Walters’ share of The View to keep O’Donnell happy, the source said.

We’re not sure we buy this story. And O’Donnell’s publicist definitely, undeniable, unequivocally isn’t buying it: “That’s absolutely not true, it’s categorically false.” Well, case closed.

      Why are you quoting a fascist rag like the NY Post? You don’t think Pukert Murdoch and Co. have an ax to grind with Rosie after she has called bullshit on them again and again over the years?

      It’s like Colonel Sanders speculates “fried chicken is the world’s best health food”. Speculations aren’t necessarily “newsworthy”.
