Rosie Breaks Contract, Runs For Cover

Rosie O’Donnell couldn’t handle all the on-stage (and back-stage) battles at The View. ABC has announced that the lesbian comedienne will not be completing her contract, which was meant to expire on June 30th. President of daytime programming Brian Frons released a statement,

We had hoped that Rosie would be with us until the end of her contract three weeks from now, but Rosie has informed us that she would like an early leave. Therefore, we part ways, thank her for her tremendous contribution to The View and wish her well.

He went on to say, “She may be a loudmouth monster, but she kept our show in the news. We’re all fucked.”

Meanwhile, Barbara WaltersThe View‘s mama and O’Donnell’s original champion – told concerned citizens:

I brought Rosie to the show. Rosie contributed to one of our most exciting and successful years at The View. I am most appreciative. Our close and affectionate relationship will not change.

For her part, O’Donnell insists she loves her co-hosts, even Elisabeth Hasselbeck and enjoyed her time making headlines, making enemies and making dough.

Now, it’s back to the unemployment line. And poor Hasselbeck can finally unclench her asshole!

    Yeah Rosie punked out. Talked a lot of noise and when she met someone with a bigger mouth than hers, she left crying like a little girl.

  • Robert

    Barbara Walters is so damn gracious…I don’t buy it.

  • Sandy

    Those great Christian moral values win again (sic).
    With friends like Elisabeth…..well, you know. She’s nothing but a Fox News Parrot.

  • ousslander

    Her quitting is the cowardly thing. Stick it out and if you pick a fight expect someone to fight back which of course she never wants or expects anyone to do. Now playing the Role of matyr, rosie O’Donnell
