Yesterday Malinda reported the rumor about Rosie O’Donnell leaving The View, and today the New York Daily News offers more speculation. The story also clarifies that Rosie’s FX offer is a spinoff of Nip/Tuck, not a lead role on the existing show.
My favorite part of the Daily News story is this hint at some diva-ish behavior from the host formerly known as the Queen of Nice:
Cindi Berger, a spokeswoman for O’Donnell and Walters, flatly denied any trouble. [...] Berger acknowledged that O’Donnell had been “frustrated” recently when she wasn’t given a hand-held microphone to introduce a guest on “The View.” But Berger maintained, “That’s not catastrophic.”
Hmm… okay. But you might want to tell the audience to duck, should that ever happen again — especially if Kelly Ripa is somehow involved.
