Rosie to take Meredith Vieira's chair on The View
What this could do for queer culture, beaming into the living rooms of the heartland. I never watch The View, but I may have to record the show just to see how long it takes for Rosie to take on Star Jones, spouse of the questionably heterosexual Al Reynolds. The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD), welcomes Rosie O’Donnell’s return to daytime.
“Rosie’s unique blend of wit, wisdom and passionate family advocacy will be a perfect addition to ‘The View,'” said GLAAD President Neil G. Giuliano. “We’re thrilled at the possibility of Rosie’s return to daytime television where she’ll be able to bring stories about her life and family to millions across America.”
As host of the syndicated “The Rosie O’Donnell Show,” O’Donnell won six Daytime Emmy Awards as best talk-show host during the show’s 1996-2002 run. She left the grind of daily television to raise four children with her partner, Kelli Carpenter O’Donnell. The couple operate the cruise line R. Family Vacations for LGBT families, which was featured in the recent HBO documentary “All Aboard! Rosie’s Family Cruise.”
Rosie announced earlier this month that she would be exec-producing a program for the cable channel called “The Big Gay Show.”
I found her first daytime show heavy sledding, particularly her overbearing fetish for the insane Tom Cruise. The one thing she’s been in that I can watch over and over is A League of Their Own. What a fun movie. From the IMDb, a fun fact.
Goofs: Miscellaneous: After they bring out the Peaches for their first game, and announce all of them, they run out on the field. In the background, you can see Rosie O’Donnell trip over a wire and fall down.
Anyway, according to TMZ, Rosie was up against Connie Chung (good lord), Patricia Heaton and Soledad O’Brien for the job.
Let’s see, how long before the American Family Association, Concerned Women for America or Focus on the Anus weigh in on this development courtesy of The Homosexual AgendaTM? Well we can see what they have to say in the swamp…nothing very bright, as usual.
Laura Ingraham is going to have material for years to come with her liberal rants!
Thats a pretty big ego jumping into that pond of egos, don’t you think?
Ewwwwwwwwww – just – ewwwwwwwww.
Watched it once….won’t again, now they have ALL libs on the show.
Will the behemoth be packing heat while on the set?
Star Jones and that redhead comedienne with the mullet are two of the biggest lefties you’ll find on TV. Now with Rosie it’s just going to be a Bush-Bashfest.
This ought to be good–everything O’Donut touches goes down in flames.
Rosie is going to drive this ship into the ground!!
Recipe for the mother of all migraine headaches: Turn on “The View” and listen to Rosie and Joy Behar shriek obnoxiously for an hour. The levels of brain deadness and decibels for this show just went through the roof. Why don’t they add Sandra Bernhard as a host, and increase those levels by yet another order of magnitude?
What’s the over/under on Star Jones quitting and going back to NBC News & the Duke Rape case, 3 weeks?
I guess the View needed more ballast, er I mean balance.
Hey Rosie, Make sure you ask Connie how her hubby’s girlfiend is doing.
I thought you had to be a woman to be on that panel.
She is there to give the dyke point of View. She may even go after Star Jones’s carpet. That would bring out the barf bags. The Moose isnt a lesbian because she wants to be , she is just too repulsive to attract a man.
Are they changing the title to “The View from the Buffet Table”?
When you see a announcement like this things immediately come to mind. If you ever saw the movie Blazing Saddles the have one scene where these guys are all sitting around a camp fire farting. That’s the first thing I thought of when I read this because during the one and only time I saw The View for all of 60 seconds that’s what it reminded me of. Now, with Rosie it’s even more smelly.
