Rosie and Elisabeth Made Me Uncomfortable

Yesterday's throwdown between Rosie O'Donnell and Elisabeth Hasselbeck almost pushed me to change the channel. The women, who are political rivals, got into a very heated argument with Rosie calling Lis "cowardly," for not defending recent statements Ro made regarding American troops in Iraq. There was all kinds of finger pointing and Elisabeth even a referenced Ro's feud with The Donald, which caused the audience to gasp. I know that some people are watching this show for the controversy Rosie causes with her big mouth, but am I alone in thinking that this has gone way past entertainment? I 've always liked The View for the banter between the ladies,and I definitely feel that Rosie has improved the show, but I was literally cringing from her fight with Elisabeth yesterday. If I wanted to watch people argue I'd watch Judge Judy, or all the other news channels where people are yelling over one another. I don't need to see Rosie and Elisabeth welling up with tears, as their fight clearly became very personal. Admittedly I'm a wuss, and not a fan of confrontation, but I'm just looking to hear a few interesting stories and laugh a little when I tune in to the ladies. And I'm not sure if it can get back to that while Rosie is still around. Check out a bunch of other celebrity fights in our Feuding Celebs: Raging Hollywood Rivalries slideshow.
