In her new book, Celebrity Detox, Rosie O'Donnell tells 77-year-old Barbara Walters to retire already.
She writes, "And Barbara. At some point, a person gets tired. It's inevitable. Barbara Walters is almost twice my age. At some point it becomes necessary to step back. Everyone has to go. Going is part of the gig."
"I would be less-than-honest if I were to say that there is no trouble between Barbara and I. I mean, our differences are obvious."
Rosie also seems to suggest her new book that Barbara might have been jealous of her success on "The View." Rosie said when audience members would shout "I love you Rosie" Barbara would say to them, "It is impolite to say I love you to one person when there are four of us up here."
Some who have read Rosie's book which is due out in October said it's a "rambling mess" not unlike her blog. As long as Rosie spills the beans, I'm reading.
If Barbara retires I would seriously shed a tear. The TV world needs as many crazy, old ladies as possible!
