ABC has been unable to come to a contractual agreement with Rosie O'Donnell. As a result, her hosting duties on "The View" will come to an end mid-June.

"They wanted me three years, I wanted one year, and it just didn't work," alisema O'Donnell on today's show.

Despite controversy -- au maybe because of it -- O'Donnell was good business for ABC, owned kwa the Walt Disney Co. Ratings for "The View" during February sweeps were up 15 percent in key women demographics over the same time in 2006.

Those mashabiki don't have to worry -- she will still be on the onyesha in smaller doses.

"I'm not going away. I'm...

A New York Times review published ten days after the onyesha premiered, and it described what critic Caryn James thought was distinctive about the show.

I was kusoma a local news feed in my area and I saw that Joy Behar will be bringing her stand-up routine to Illinois. She will be performing at the Paramount Theater in Aurora, Illinois on September 20th.

I am pretty tempted to get tickets to go see her. I cannot remember ever seeing any of her stand-up routines, although I am sure some of the jokes that she repeats over and over are likely to pop up in the routine. While I think seeing her in person would be fun, I am not sure I can sit through her Salman Rushdie joke again au her tired Monica Lewinsky jokes. I know that she alisema that she...

Yeahhhhh>> I'm so happy to tell wewe people that it is yet come the time for another season of The View. Some of wewe may be wondering how the onyesha still has the same ladies on it for yet another mwaka but it is not surprising to the fans. We all know that the steady change of the ladies on The View were brought about kwa problems and steady controversies among the panel. Rosie O'Donnel had to go and so did nyota Jones, as Barbara Walters once told CNN news, but it doesn't matter who goes au who stays, the onyesha must go on. And what a daytime televisheni onyesha it is indeed for us all to watch....

It's always Rosie O'Donnell versus Elisabeth Hasselbeck when it comes to political discussions – but on The View Wednesday morning, the debate turned personal when O'Donnell called her cohost "cowardly" for not defending O'Donnell's position on the troops in Iraq.

The chanzo of the blowup? A discussion last week in which Hasselbeck and O'Donnell debated the meaning of the word "terrorist." O'Donnell asked, "655,000 Iraqi civilians are dead. Who are the terrorists?" On Wednesday, O'Donnell accused Hasselbeck of not defending her when media outlets, including, O'Donnell said, fox, mbweha News, claimed...

There is a new McCain ad about how Obama is a celebrity, which features Britney Spears and Paris Hilton. Whoopi thinks is it...

For the first couple of years of its existence, the series remained rather controversy-free save for criticism aliyopewa towards Debbie Matenopoulos, a panelist who was spoofed mercilessly kwa the critics, who felt that Matenopoulos did not have the proper news credentials for the show. She was ultimately let go in 1999, when her contract was not renewed.

Following Matenopoulos' departure, Lisa Ling was announced as the new co-host beating out Rachel Campos and Lauren Sanchez who competed in an on-air...

A debate that broke out on “The View” last week was so heated, that it caused a whole lot of commotion and backlash following its airing. The ladies of “The View” had been discussing the “N” word, which led to a debate over whether the word could be used in any context.


Whoopi Goldberg tried to explain to Elizabeth Hasselbeck, why it was okay for black people to use the word, but not white people. Hasselbeck, making the point that we should be moving towards a world in which we are all the same, made the point that she didn’t think it was okay for anybody to use the word.
