Rosie’s non-catastrophic frustration

Rosie O'DonnellYesterday 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.
