Rosie O’Donnell’s stormy tenure on “The View” will be a short one. ABC said Wednesday it was unable to agree on a contract with the opinionated host, and she’ll leave the show in June.
O’Donnell said in a statement that “my needs for the future just didn’t dovetail with what ABC was able to offer me.”
“This has been an amazing experience,” she said, “and one I wouldn’t have traded for the world.
O’Donnell has helped raise the ratings for the daytime chat show invented by Barbara Walters. But her outspokenness has caused almost constant controversy, including a nasty name-calling feud with Donald Trump.
But O’Donnell may have broken the proverbial camel’s back this week when she used the F-word and grabbed her crotch when she emceed a gala awards presentation in New York.
The event was the Matrix Awards honoring New York’s prominent women in the media, held Monday afternoon at Manhattan’s Waldorf-Astoria.
After the show Beth Ellen Keyes, managing director of the group sponsoring the affair, N.Y. Women in Communications, said in an e-mail: “Rosie was fabulous.”
Not everyone would agree. According to the New York Post’s Page Six column, Barbara Walters “lowered her head on the dais and covered her face with her hand” when Rosie dropped the F-bomb.
O’Donnell ended a rant about Donald Trump by grabbing her crotch and shouting, “Eat me!”
One attendee told the Post: “I cringed and dove under the table when she said, ‘Eat me.’”
She also called Trump an “old, bald billionaire” and made a crude reference to his private parts.
“I was offended by how vulgar and common O’Donnell was,” said Robert Zimmerman, a Democratic activist. “It was especially inappropriate with young people present.”
Attendees include 17 high school girls who won scholarship to pursue careers in the media.
Also on hand: Media mogul Rupert Murdoch and Sen. Hillary Clinton.

All I can say on this one is, It’s about damned time that someone who has been saying far worse things than almost anyone having to apologise for things lately, is finally being reprimanded and fired for what they are saying! Even so, you will never hear the high and mighty Ms Rosie apologise for anything!
This couldn’t have happened to a more deserving person. Rosie, stick to acting. It is the ONE THING you are fairly good at. But I do not think that it should end here. I think an apology is needed here. And not just a fake ones like everyone else wants…..but an honest to goodness apology to America for the crap you have been saying about all of us. Have you no shame? Apparently not.
Now, Rosie, has the right to say anything she wants….after all that is free speech, but, with the responsibility of free speech, comes the responsibility of common sense on what to say when and when NOT TO SAY something. You have the right to say anything you want, but you also have the responsibility to be responsible with the things you say. And You haven’t been. You need to think things over before opening your big mouth, because you can get slapped with liable….of course your liberal friends wouldn’t allow that, because you speak their language.
So, Rosie, if you get another show, at least show some responsibility in the things you say, or better yet….just stick to acting. Just as I said above, the one thing that you are fairly good at.
