CLAIM: The View “Desperate” for Rosie O’Donnell to Return as “Full-Time” Co-Host
“Rosie Headed Back to ‘The View’?” asks Star, which claims that Rosie O’Donnell and TV execs want to turn her recent guest appearance on the morning show “into a full-time job.”
The tab cites a “set insider” as divulging that “producers have started to miss [the] fireworks” that the chatfest was known for back when O’Donnell often sparred with former co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck.
“It was memorable television, and that’s what ‘The View’ is lacking — the magic of the show is gone,” says Star’s so-called “spy.”
The outlet’s supposed source adds, “But Rosie is must-see TV, and they’re desperate to have her back. It would be a win-win for everyone.”
Well, don’t go setting the DVR just yet, says a source connected to “The View.”
Well, everyone makes a good guess once and a while…
With in news late June that Sherri Shepherd couldn’t come to a contract agreement, and Jenny McCarthy being let go, “The View” has made strong overtures to O’Donnell.
At this point, it looks close to a done deal.
