The View cohost Rosie O’Donnell announced on Wednesday that she’s leaving the ABC talk show. The outspoken celeb said that she will be returning to guest host segments on topics such as autism and depression in the future.
Rosie said the departure was due to a breakdown in contract negotiations. “They wanted me three years, I wanted one year…and it just didn’t work,” she said. There are rumors, however, that negotiations may have fallen apart due to the issue of money. The funny lady says she plans to remain on The View full-time until her contract expires in June.
Barbara Walters stated on the show that she would miss Rosie’s presence very much despite Donald Trump’s recent remarks that Walters was somehow behind Rosie’s resignation. The billionaire and Rosie have been embroiled in a very public war of words since December of last year.
