Rosie O'Donnell Well, at least she went out with a bang. Snip, Snipe—she and co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck got into an on-air war of words Wednesday, complete with split screen debate (those clever producers).

ABC announced that O’Donnell won’t be back to complete her remaining contract, instead asking for an early leave. Barbara Walters commented, “Rosie contributed to one of our most exciting and successful years at The View. I am most appreciative. Our close and affectionate relationship will not change.” Can’t you just sense Walters’ relief over the early departure? It has been a turbulent year on the show, and although they enjoyed better ratings with Rosie, the numbers came at a cost—Rosie’s outspoken manner made many headlines, most notably her battle with Donald Trump. Unfortunately, her early departure leaves us without the typical Rosie musical spectacular that she would have likely commissioned on her last appearance. Am I upset about that? No way.
