The Daytime Talk Show world was rocked last week by Rosie O’Donnell’s sudden departure from The View. This is the second time the comedian has left the show, she previously served as a co-host in 2007 and rejoined the panel in Fall 2014, along with new co-hosts Nicole Wallace and Rosie Perez, as well as returning moderator Whoopi Goldberg. The actress has said that she wants to focus on her health and her family, and I doubt few can fault her for putting herself and her loved ones first in her life. O’Donnell recently announced that she and her wife Michelle Rounds were splitting and in a video that aired during Thursday’s show, the heart-arrack survivor cited “stress” as a key factor in her decision to leave.
“I’m minimizing my stress by leaving The View. The stress I’m having at home is not easily as remediable. … It’s hard, marriages are complicated and I’ve got five kids … There’s lots of stuff going on at home.”
In her absence, The View will have guest co-hosts this week, and it’s speculation at this point if any of the temp fill-ins will become permanent.
Let’s see what’s going to happen on TV Talk Feb 16-20.
