Another fat, loudmouth lesbian? Whoopie just lost her niche
Gee, what a concept. Add a liberal loudmouth lesbian to the mix of personalities on that show, and hilarity and outrageous clips show up on YouTube to generate publicity. Sounds like a winning combination........
They are gonna need a bigger chair, and up the catering budget...
They are also changing the name from The View to The Eyesore.
Rosie’s Success, and Failure: A Post-Mortem, or, “America, Say Goodbye to Jo-Jo the Dog-Faced Boy”

Let’s be real, folks: Television has merely been using Rosie. It needed her to boost ratings (and therefore dollars), by creating controversy and trapping eyes in the headlights.
Rosie brought little or no inherent talent or views of value to television. But she’s loud and pushy, and loud and pushy people tend to get heard over quiet, decent people. For a time, her political point of view was hip, but even that has lost cachet. Look at her poetry: She can’t even speak in complete sentences! What exactly is this woman’s talent?
What does a talentless person like O’Donnell have to offer its audience? Nothing but themselves, packaged for entertainment value. And Rosie was nothing if not herself: a loud, ugly, offensive freak of human nature.
Barnum and Bailey, and many other circuses, fascinated the dullest, most gullible minds of their day, playing them for suckers, by dragging out every imaginable freak they could find and promising entertainment for a nickel. People shows up in droves to see these freaks. Anyone too tall, too short, too ugly, too strange to make it in the real world using real talent to serve the public was preyed upon, placed in cages behind curtains, and exploited for the amusement of the mindless.
Nothing has changed since the days of Barnum and Bailey.
Look at a show like American Idol. Some of the people are truly talented, but it is the freaks that the public loves (this current looney, Jumbalaya, or whatever his name is), and it is the gifted ones that the show doesn’t know what to do with (for instance, Jennifer Hudson, who was talented with or without the pronouncement of Simon, and is likely on her way to Broadway).
(Even Simon himself is a sort of freak. He certainly doesn’t know talent when he sees it, he has little taste, and his personality is lacking in one important feature: namely, a personality. But he’s rude, arrogant, and in his way, a freak. People watch him for that reason. But his eye-rolling after the VT massacre may have been one of the final nails in his coffin.)
Which brings me to Rosie O’Donnell. I saw her in person once, a half block from the Schubert Theatre in New York, at one of the theatre industry’s many sidewalk sales for some cause or another. It was close to the opening of her disastrous Boy George musical, and she was sitting at a table steps from me.
Let me tell you, this woman was scary. Ugly doesn’t say it. Angry-ugly is a better word. Her ugliness, as Trump astutely observed, came from within and infected her exterior. It made me sad and heartbroken to see this ruined shell of a human being. It didn’t surprise me, but it did take me aback. All of her self-hate was pouring out of her eyes. This woman hates herself and her hatred for the world is just an outflow.
When you are a freak, you are only truly safe when you stay behind the bars of your cage and do not touch the customers. If you are Filthy Facial Pustule Man, sitting behind bars on a lice-ridden couch, people will look at your gross facial pustules and say, “Ewwww,” and tell their friends, and take one last glance before they exit. And you can do better for yourself as a Pustulite by finding a way to garner the audiences’ sympathy.
But as soon as you start popping your pustules and squirting them on customers, you no longer have value as entertainment, and no amount of sympathy of will bring them back. You are now a worthless freak: No inherent value, and no entertainment value either. Just a nuisance.
Rosie, in fact, is Jo-Jo The Dog Faced Boy. She was always been Jo-Jo The Dog-Faced Boy. She has been nothing more than a freak which TV execs exploited to line their own pockets.
For all her growling, yawping, bullying, and foaming at the mouth, she was always contained in the protective cage of her masters. She may wish to believe otherwise, and convince you that she had her say, and left on her terms, but it is not true. She only had an audience on The View because she sold soap and toilet paper. When her box office went down, she was no longer of use to Barnum and Bailey.
Rosie started scaring some of the people on the other side of the bars. Her ratio of sympathy and freakinss and grossness and offensiveness shifted, and now, instead of helping the show, she hurt it, in net terms. She will always have her fans that buy crap on her website, and always her detractors. But on this show she went over the line, and, refusing to listen or obey her true masters, the masters she willingly signed on with, she could not keep up her end of the bargain.
Rosie is now, therefore, toast. She is one step closer to being displayed in a bottle of formeldahyde, in a dusty trailer outside El Paso or Omaha.
And let’s be clear: Barbara Walters was merely her zookeeper. She herself is a washed out entertainer, a has-been, who once had credibility as a journalist, but now has none.
Barbara at best is the barker of this freakshow. She didn’t even qualify for ringmaster (unless Rosie’s ringworm qualifies). Walters now plays in the outermost tent, bringing people to dull daytime television (who has time to watch daytime except lazy people?), so they can be sold products and sucked into the evening and latenight viewing. Walters left the bigtop ages ago.
Recent rumors of Rosie’s upcoming departure from The View do not surprise me. They may or may not be true, but her star is falling. I use the term star loosely.
Will they be modifying the set to reduce the risk of it tipping over?
Wow, is that show still on? The only time I hear of it is when O’reilly brags about being on it.
Wasn’t she there before?
Didn’t they ask her to leave for stupid remarks?...................
Well....I guess the show DID need a man’s point of view.....
How anyone could watch thirty seconds of that fat slug bleating on about how much she hates everyone who disagrees with her is beyond my understanding.
I think the View needs Windex, and this ain’t it. Canceled by Summer 2015.
Wikipedia (I know, not the best source) confirms your statement. 2007 era.
That’ll solve all their problems.
It always amazed me that Rosie somehow convinced legions of women that she was the “Queen of Nice,” when it was so obvious from watching and listening to her for five minutes that underneath she had a really hard, angry edge and could be a b*tch on wheels.
More proof that liberals cannot make a right decision....
A couple of dozen additional boxes of Krispy Kremes each day should cover it.
I assume this is a TV show
The View is still on?
Well I can’t not watch what I didn’t already not watch (lot’s-o-negatives in there) but I sure as poop ain’t watching.
They need ratings, bad. They figure it can’t get any worse than it already is (it can). Hell, they might as well strap on roller blades, throw them in a rink and let em have at it. I daresay it would up their ratings tremendously to see fatass Rosie up against another fatass, Whoopie. In fact, even I would stock up on popcorn for that event.
Well,that’s two empty chairs filled.
I’d rather watch hyenas copulate after gorging on a water buffalo carcass.
Speaking of which... what’re Barry and Shelly up to this afternoon?
The View had its all time best rating when Caliph Baraq appeared in 2010. They may be bidding for his services in 2017 vs. PMSNBC and ISIS.
You forgot to add POS.
Now I guess I can ... not watch it TWICE?
The pork-chop rider alone is 6 pages.
I didn't know she had left.
The only time I ever watched even part of The View was about 10 years ago when I was stuck in a hospital waiting room and couldn't turn off the TV. It was like watching someone vomit.
Ouch. That's going to leave a mark.
That is good. Gives me another reason not to watch it.
Just don’t watch it.
Rosie is being used to serve the same function that a car crash on a highway serves. People will stop to look. Disasters attract big audiences.
LOL - get ready for some wingnut moments. Back in 2007 on the View Rosie revealed that she hangs upside down to cure depression. Check out the video - http://www.aoltv.com/2007/03/10/watch-rosie-hang-upside-down-video/
Hanging Rosie would cure me of any depression.
Oops that was in her home. On the View it looked like:
I wonder what the guys at the auto parts store said when she bought the towing straps?
Doesn’t matter a damn to me.
I NEVER HAVE WATCHED THAT SHOW ONE TIME AND DON’T EVER INTEND TO EITHER..
Seriously, who better personifies the values represented on “The View”?
That would be more entertaining and informative.................
Maybe Tom Selleck can be her first guess and finish what he should have years ago.
Back then, she DID put on a pretty good act. If you look at old clips from when she was known as the Queen of Nice, she wore makeup and was almost cute. She pretended to be heterosexual, making much out of her supposed crush on Tom Cruise. She pretended to be nice to her guests. I think one of the first clues to her real self was when she was so horrible to Tom Selleck just because he did ads for the NRA.
