New Front in View War

Rosie O’Donnell‘s friends aren’t content watching the View co-host chew out Elisabeth Hasselbeck on camera. They’re taking the increasingly furious – and childish – fight back stage. Page Six reports:

Yesterday, Rosie’s chief writer, Janette Barber, was allegedly escorted from the building after she was caught drawing moustaches on photographs of Hasselbeck that hang in the “View” studios.

The Post’s Adam Buckman reports ABC confirmed in a statement only that “photographs at ‘The View’s’ offices were defaced.

C’mon, girls! That’s silly. Just because O’Donnell has a moustache, doesn’t mean everyone has to have one.

Meanwhile, the Post’s gossip column also reports that Rosie may not be returning to The View to complete her contract:

When one fan wrote [to Rosie], “Work isn’t worth that battle,” Rosie replied, “Agreed.” Another wrote, “Please walk away. It’s not worth it.” Rosie replied, “Well, you know when it’s time to go.”

To a fan who asked when she would return, O’Donnell answered, “No idea.”

O’Donnell’s contract officially ends on June 20th. That is, of course, if she doesn’t bring the entire set down around her.
