Rosie's Reward

From FOX delicious.

Rosie O'Donnell Already Has Offers From NBC and CBS

"Rosie O'Donnell is walking away from "The View" the undisputed winner of what has been a nightmare situation for ABC. Rosie already has had offers from NBC and CBS for daytime shows to counter "The View," sources say.

Not only that, Rosie can pretty much write her own ticket, whether it's a no-holds-barred show on HBO or a syndicated program similar to her previous hit talk show.

What's clear, though, is that O'Donnell is leaving a leaking, if not sinking, ship at "The View." And don't believe rumors that Roseanne Barr will succeed her at the desk next fall. If you thought Barbara Walters had trouble tolerating O'Donnell, believe me, a few weeks of Roseanne would send her over the edge."

I don't feel sorry for Walters. She knew exactly what she was getting when she signed Rosie on.

The buzz I've heard is that CBS is offering Rosie $20 million and a slot opposite "The View." My mother thinks that braindead Hasselback is the next one to go, and that she's weedling for a job on Fox herself. She and her stubborn "Al Qaeda was in Iraq" mantra would fit in perfectly over there.

If you're one of the five people in the country who hasn't seen the O'Donnell-Hasselback confrontation, you can view it here. Normally, I'm a little skeptical of these types of onstage dramatics, but, speaking as someone who has had her share of angry faceoffs, the two here don't have the look of people who are kidding around. They both look really pissed off. I'm not a huge Rosie fan always-she's been known to play a little fast and loose with the facts-but good for her for standing up for herself. She may be a loudmouth, but she'e not a terrorist.

I wish some of these spineless Democratic leaders would take a cue from her.
