Rosie to leave The View

Rosie O’Donnell leaving ABC’s `The View’

By DAVID BAUDER, AP Television Writer 13 minutes ago

Rosie O’Donnell’s stormy tenure on “The View” will be a short one. The opinionated host was unable to agree on a contract with ABC, and she’ll leave the show in June.

O’Donnell said on the show Wednesday that she wanted to stay for one more year, and ABC wanted three. So she decided to leave, although she said she will appear occasionally next season for things like a planned one-hour special on autism.

“It just didn’t work,” she said, “and that’s show biz. But it’s not sad because I loved it here and I love you guys and I’m not going away.”

O’Donnell has helped raise the ratings for the daytime chat show invented by Barbara Walters. But her outspokenness has caused continual controversy, including a nasty name-calling feud with Donald Trump that placed Walters squarely in the middle.

“We have had, to say the least, an interesting year,” Walters said.

Walters said she had nothing to do with the decision, reached after talks between representatives for ABC Daytime and O’Donnell.

“This is not my doing or my choice,” she said.
