Price Not Right For Rosie

Rosie O’Donnell will not be the next host of The Price Is Right. Despite former host Bob Barker‘s Emmy endorsement and O’Donnell’s public display of expectation, it seems the lesbianic chatter box and CBS simply can’t reach a compromise. Rosie butting heads with network executives? What a fucking shocker.

Rosie wanted the gig, but refused to move to Los Angeles. She asked producers if she could tape multiple episodes a day, but they weren’t having it. Now that the deal’s dead, Rosie says she didn’t want it anyway:

Here’s the thing. I don’t really need a job. I’m in a weird position. I don’t need the money. I know you’re not allowed to talk about money in America. But I’m just saying I don’t. So to get my entire family uprooted from their lives and move them across the country so that I can have a fantasy childhood indulgence job just doesn’t seem fair.

Well, at least she’s got a relatively balanced sense of justice, huh?

      Rosie, hon, just live on your money and stay away from the spotlight for a while.

      Rosie may not need a job, but she obviously has an insatiable need for attention. Will she ever shut up?!

      Queens, please. You don’t think most media personalities make a big stink about their contracts? Rosie’s certainly not the first celeb to clash with network execs.

      And anyway, her statements about not needing the job are pretty accurate. Can’t fault her there.

      I don’t blame her for not wanting to live in LA – this place sucks!

      Any Executive would be crazy to hire this bipolar, depressed , angry woman. She has proven herself to be difficult to work with, mean, childish and petty. And I consider myself a fan, but I am not blind to her many short-comings. Keep bragging Ro about your big bucks, cause maybe that is all you’re gonna get!
