O’Donnell Leaving After Contract Negotiations Fail
April 25, 2007 – The Scrooge Report Post
NEW YORK — On the heels of her obscene comments at a recent media event, an infamous feud with Donald Trump and countless politically sensitive remarks, Rosie O’Donnell is leaving “The View” at the end of her first season on the show.
ABC said Wednesday it was unable to agree on a contract with the opinionated host, and she’ll leave the show in June.
O’Donnell said in a statement that “my needs for the future just didn’t dovetail with what ABC was able to offer me.”
“This has been an amazing experience,” she said, “and one I wouldn’t have traded for the world.”
