Rosie O’Donnell NOT Rejoining “The View,” Despite Report
According to Star, the “prickly panelist” may be returning to the popular daytime television series to save plummeting ratings, despite her previous bust-ups with producers and executives of the show. A so-called “source” tells the outlet, “She knows she messed up before and didn’t try hard enough, but she thinks audiences loves her and that she deserves one last shot.” “Rosie is putting on the full-court press with producers. She’s convinced that she’s what the series needs to get back on top,” concludes the magazine’s dubious tipster.
Let Gossip Cop set the record straight. A rep for O’Donnell exclusively assures us the article has “no truth” to it. In 2015, the star quit the daytime series to spend more time with her family, and currently has no plans to rejoin the show. Once again, the outlet has produced yet another fake news story.
Unfortunately, this is not the first time Gossip Cop has busted a completely inaccurate report about the former panelist. Last year, we corrected Star’s sister publication, OK!, for wrongly claiming O’Donnell was forcing Rosie Perez to quit “The View.” And shortly before that fabricated tale, we debunked the same tabloid for falsely alleging the star was at war with Whoopi Goldberg on the set of the talk show. Those stories weren’t true, and neither is this latest claim.
