TMZ was right! Rosie O'Donnell is leaving "The View" after fulfilling her one-season contract. ABC just released this statement and Rosie will confirm on today's show at 11. ABC was unable to come to a contractual agreement for her second year and she will leave Mid-June.
Barbara Wawa said: "I induced Rosie to come back to television on 'The View' even for just one year. She has given the program new vigor, new excitement and wonderful hours of television. I can only be grateful to her for this year. I am very sad that ABC Daytime could not reach an agreement with her for a second year. We will all miss Rosie on 'The View,' and hope she will be back with us often next season. She remains for me a cherished friend and colleague."
Rosie said: "This has been an amazing experience, and one I wouldn't have traded for the world. Working with Barbara, Joy and Elisabeth has been one of the highlights of my career, but my needs for the future just didn't dovetail with what ABC was able to offer me. To all the viewers out there, I just want to say 'thank you' for opening up your hearts and your homes to me this past year. But you can always find me at rosie.com. Here's hoping there's more confetti for all of us going forward."
Michael K said: "Fuck this show! I'm deleting it from my Tivo! Get Alexyss K. Tylor, CoCo or Lewis the Cat as a new co-host and I might change my mind!"
ABC has no plans to announce a new co-host yet.
Why does Hollywood keep giving important roles to sluts who can't act? Is it that hard to find someone who can actually show some emotion? Anyway, Julia Stile's lumpy face will produce and star in a film version of "The Bell Jar."
The semi-autobiographical novel by Sylvia Plath tells the story of Esther Greenwood, a young reporter who seeks to make a name for herself in New York but spirals into depression and moves back to Boston. She eventually undergoes electroshock therapy and makes several attempts to take her own life.
Shooting is expected to begin later this year.
Was Kate Winslet not available?

Anderson Cooper creates quite a stir everytime he works out at the Equinox Gym in Manhattan's Time Warner Center. Peeping toms trying to get a peek of lil' coop have created such a problem for Andy that he showers in his boxer briefs now.
A source told JanetCharlton.com that Andy's afraid of people getting a picture of him with their camera phones.
I don't see anything wrong with hit. I just hope he wears flip flops too, because some of those gym floors have more diseases than a pair of Hilton panties.
An inside source has snitched to Us Weekly that Tom Cruise has ordered Katie Holmes to take "mommy lessons" at the Scientology Center. Friends say that Katie is neck-deep into Scientology and her only outside link is Posh Beckham. For some reason Tom still allows Katie to remain friends with her even though Posh has made it clear that she's not joining Scientology, because she wants to spend her money on shoes and purses instead.
A Scientology source said that the "mommy" classes are basically classes to learn parenting skills.
Katie still has her Scientology minder who was assigned to her when she started dating Tom. The minder has to make sure Katie doesn't say anything critical about the cult.
Scientology parenting classes scare. They most likely teach you how to prepare your tots for the mothership.
I'm waiting for the day Katie loses it in the middle of Barney's shoe department. That day is coming.
Jessica Simpson's #1 stalker, her daddy Joe Simpson, is considering managing Britney Spears. Sources tell Rush & Molloy that he tried to set up a meeting with her this past weekend, but it feel through. Probably, because dumbass Britney was driving all the way to Barstow to get a burger at a taco place! I still can't get over that.
Anyways, Joe Simpson's rep denies all this. Sources say that if Britney signs with Joe she won't be in direct competition with Jessica. Since Jess' music career sucks, Joe has put her in the movies and endorsing products.
If this ever happens, you know Brit and Joe are going to have an affair. SICK! Joe's probably already jacking it to the pictures of her in those shorty shorts. He can't wait to run his fingers through that beat wig.
TMZ is reporting that Rosie O'Donnell will announce that she's leaving "The View" this morning. Sources say she will stick it out for the rest of the season, but will announce today that she quits this bitch. These sources say that the rumors are coming from the show itself.
Rosie's rep was not available for comment.
I guess we'll see at 11am, but if this is true I'm done with The View. I only watch it to see what Rosie's going to say and who's going to fight, blah, blah blah. I love Joy, but this show is nothing without Rosie. NOTHING!
UPDATE – TMZ is now saying that the rumors are TRUE and that producers are already looking for her replacement. Unless her replacement is Alexyss K. Tylor aka Vagina Power, I'm done!
