Are you kidding me...I know what the concept of the tv show...But in my opinion she is the absolute worse choice...I really can't wait to see how she gets along with Joy...Unfortunately I will have to read about it on the net...I do not intend to watch what used to be one of my favorite news programs...

Agreed. I too am a fan of The View. Rosie is not an ensemble player and I don't believe she will 'play well with others'. I used to enjoy her old show, but with time she became too political, too opinionated and too obnoxious.

In a related story, ABC has announced they will re-name the show "Blocking the View" since Ms. O'Donnell will literally be obstructing the view of her co-hosts.

A "news program"??
I'm sorry but The View is not a news program. 60 Minutes is a news program. Hell, The Daily Show is a news program. But The View? sorry, that's a Talk Show at best.

Well, considering she won six Daytime Emmy Awards and had a following for so many years, I don't think she's "the worst choice". I'm guessing Oprah wouldn't do the show so I can't think of anybody better. I value your opinion if you just think she's not the type to share the stage with others or you don't like her style of commedy.. I just hope you feel this was because she's gay cuz that would just be sad. I think if any reasonable minded person watched her documentary on HBO, you'd atleast learn that she has a huge heart and speaks out for kids in need.

I think she's going to make the show more exciting then its ever been. Rosie is a wonderful person. Roise was very well liked for her show. When she came out to the public as lesbian then some people then said they didn't like her cause she's this and that Which is BS. She does alot more then other famous people for kids. Everyone loved her.

When the one black host on the view quits with no announced plans after "Rosie" is announced as a host, one has to think that perhaps there is some interacial tension there.

I agree. She has an attacking side that she shows so she can get her way. The thing about Star Jones weight loss. Who cares how she lost it, she tells people to decide what is right for them, but Rosie wants more infor, and when she doesn't get it she attacks and she will do it on the View.

I will miss The View. I will not be watching it. I had enough of Rosie's grandstanding before she left her show. I used to love her but she got way "too much" for me. I loved the view. I don't know who decided on this new direction but whoever it was should be fired ASAP!! I will really miss Joy and hope she also finds a new outlet that I can enjoy her on.

I believe Rosie makes The View a better, funnier show. Rosie is one of the most talented women on TV and she has the awards to prove it.

I would like to get in touch with Rosie O'Donnell for she is able to get things done and I need to ask her if she would put me in touch with
Julia Fiona Roberts who did the movie
Sleeping with the Enemy and
Erin Brockovich----
so I can request to make a statement before Congress about how women are treated in the courts. I have a story (my own) I would like to tell Congress about.
But because I have a disability in talking under stress (my husband tried to murder me) I survived his brutal attack but I am not doing so well surviving in the court system. Believe it or not the man was found guilty of harming me and was sentenced to a year in jail, and I was named as his victim --- but the court allowed him to continue to have control over my 50% of the family business after we were divorced.
He died two years ago and the court will not return my part of the assets. All this was done by fraud upon the court (and they took advantage of me because I was too ill to function well enough to do anything about it --- I had an attorney in the beginning but the court allowed her to abandon me while I was still in PTSD with severe panic attacks and other problems --- and the opposing attorney altered what the judge ruled and
made out her own ruling .....
now because I am not able to get another attorney I am told I cannot come to court because I am too slow and can't make my words come out sometimes and take up too much court time.
I can type what I want to say but the judge does not want to take time to read what I tell him.
taking my 50 % and letting him control that part has left me with out a way to even go to the dentist or have the special food it takes for my sugar problems.... which is made worse by the stress... and I want to have someone help me tell Congress what is going on in the courts when it comes to poor women with out any access to the money it takes to correct the errors that take place. I need to mention that part of the reason I can not get another attorney is because I told the local Newspaper about the wrongs being done in the local court system and I told the Bar about what bad things my second attorney did and that he neglected to tell me when there was a court hearing about to take place so they disbarred him so no new attorney will touch the case for fear they would also be turned in if they did not do things according to the Law. I have proof of all this and I can email it or fax court documents for you to see that I am able to prove what I have said
I am certified disabled but the court ignores this and
the Americans With Disabilities Act of 1990
I do not have a large amount due to me but it would be enough to help me get a dentist and a new roof (the storm two years ago messed up my roof)
Sincerely, Jane

Rosie is wonderful!!!! I always enjoyed watching her show when she was on the air years ago. She is sharp opinionated and down to earth. A perfect counter to Barbara Walters. YOU GO ROSIE!!!!! WE LOVE YOU!

Rosie needs to go solo - she just doesn't fit into the format of The View. EVERYTHING is about her - she is not egomaniacal - she is simply unbelievably insecure. I used to watch The View - now I clean the house while it's on. There's a lot of good one can say about Rosie but I think she's a bad fit for this show and I get the feeling that the other co-hosts seem to be tolerating her instead of enjoying her presence.

I used to love Rosie on her show. I use to love the view. But she has become so self rightous and obnoxious. It stresses me out to watch now. I am done with it sadly.
