Daytime talk show The View is going downhill fast, and Rosie O’Donnell is clearly in a panic about it.
After news broke last night that cohost Rosie Perez would be leaving the show, O’Donnell lost it on this morning’s show as she desperately denied these claims.
A clearly frazzled O’Donnell told her audience:
“No matter what you read anywhere, Rosie Perez is also coming back after she is done rehearsing her play. Her play, the new Larry David play that she’s starring in [Fish in the Dark] opens soon. And then she will be back here at her job, regardless of what you hear in other shows or read in magazines as I did last night at 11:40 and went, ‘What the f*ck?!’”
The View is a live morning show, so cursing on it is a big no-no. O’Donnell’s outburst clearly shows the chaos that has descended on the show, as well the fact that she’s panicking as she slowly realizes that she’ll be out of work next year.
