ABC made the announcement earlier today. From ABC News:
The saga is over.
Rosie O’Donnell will not be returning to “The View.”
In a statement today, Brian Frons, the president of Disney-ABC’s Daytime Television Group, said, “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.”
I guess Elisabeth Hasselbeck’s finally standing up to Rosie and telling her to stick it was just too much for her.
