Rosie O'Donnell says she doesn't have time these days to view "The View."
"I don't watch it too much," O'Donnell said. "I don't really watch too much daytime, having four kids and being kind of overwhelmed by that."
O'Donnell who left the daytime talk show in 2007 after a single tumultuous season returns to TV on Saturday night with a Lifetime movie about the foster-care system called "America." She had been a foster parent to two children, including a girl named Rosie for 1 1/2 years, when an intern in 2002 handed her the book by E.R. Frank that inspired the movie.
O'Donnell, who co-wrote the script and is executive producer, plays a therapist for a boy aging out of foster care. She discovered her 17-year-old co-star Philip Johnson while eating at a Detroit diner just days before production was to begin.
... O'Donnell is raising four children with Kelli Carpenter, who she married five years ago in a San Francisco ceremony courts later invalidated. They range in age from 13-year-old Parker to 6-year-old Vivi.
O'Donnell found this year's Academy Awards to be "beautifully gay," and praised acceptance speeches by "Milk" Dustin Lance Black and Sean Penn.
In the wake of California voters banning same-sex marriage, O'Donnell said she expects the gay-rights movement to move beyond individual states.
"We keep walking forward," she said. "Civil rights don't happen overnight. I think it's going to happen, and it's going to happen soon. It will be national."

Yeah, do you really think she has that much to do with them? Nannys and all that. She is just blowing off the View because they dumped her. She is a woman of “issues”.
