Rosie vs Elisabeth catfight costs quick exit for O’Donnell

Couldn’t ABC have milked the wacked liberal vs the timid gone wild conservative catfight for a little longer. All of a sudden, The View turned into Reality TV: Live and Explosive ….can we cut to a commercial please? Is anyone directing the show?

Rosie Won’t Be Back on ‘The View’

NEW YORK (AP) – Rosie O’Donnell has fought her last fight at `The View.’ ABC said Friday she won’t be back on the show following her angry confrontation with co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck on Wednesday.

O’Donnell asked for, and received, an early exit from her contract. She was due to leave “The View” in mid-June.

“Rosie contributed to one of our most exciting and successful years at `The View,'” show creator Barbara Walters said. “I am most appreciative. Our close and affectionate relationship will not change.”

In a statement, O’Donnell said she was grateful. “It’s been an amazing year and I love all three women.”

Presumably, that includes Hasselbeck. The two exchanged bitter words on Wednesday over O’Donnell’s opposition to the war in Iraq. They’ve frequently had snippy political exchanges during O’Donnell’s year on the daytime chatfest, but never as long and loud as that one.
