The New York Post claims that Rosie O'Donnell wanted Barbara Walters out of "The View." Sources claim that Rosie approached ABC about taking over the talk show from top to bottom. Rosie wanted ABC to buy out Babs to keep her happy. Rosie said yesterday on the show that they couldn't come to terms with the length of the new contract, but apparently it had nothing to do with that.
Rosie's rep said, "That's absolutely not true, it's categorically false. People are making things up because they want to pit two powerful women against each other. Rosie just did not want to commit to three years."
Rosie has already been in talks for her own daytime or nightime talk show for 2009. There are also rumors that she will join the Broadway cast of Les Miserables.
I just heard a rumor from an inside source (the homeless man down the street) that ABC is looking to replace Rosie with a dude.
