Rosie's Done

You won't be seeing Rosie O'Donnell on The View today -- or ever again for that matter. The outspoken host has bailed on the show three weeks before her contract was set to end, after the throw down between her and Elisabeth Hasselbeck took on a life of its own. Ro says that her reason for leaving is the fact that the show chose to do a split-screen of the two hosts, who were arguing over their opposite political views. Brian Frons, president of ABC Daytime said in 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." Rosie answered questions on her website all weekend regarding the incident and, when asked if she an Elisabeth had spoken, Ro said, "She called and Kelli [Carpenter, Rosie's partner] and her she spoke for a long time. I haven't spoken to her and I probably won't, and I think it's just as well." I'm sad for them, but I'm dying to see what happens on today's show.
