Rosie O'Donnell to be Replaced by Roseanne Barr on 'The View'?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

By Jo Anne Way
Apr 30, 2007

Roseanne Barr went from a funny sitcom star to a pariah with one horrible National Anthem' rendition where she grabbed her crotch and spat after butchering the Star-Spangled Banner in San Diego. Rosie O'Donnell went from the 'queen of nice' to the 'queen of mean' by hosting 'The View' shock jock style and blasting away at anyone and everyone that didn't agree with her politics. So - can one replace the other? Can Barbara Walters fading reputation take it?


Rosie O'Donnell to be Replaced by Roseanne Barr?

The New York Post has a report that Roseanne Barr has emerged as the top contender to replace Rosie O'Donnell next year on "The View," sources tell the newspaper.

***

"She's a piece of work, she's a character, she says what's on her mind and she's funny," said a source with knowledge of ABC's sudden and desperate search to find a new co-host to replace O'Donnell who quit the show last week. "They're missing strong personalities on that show, and that's what they're going to need if they want to keep it going," an ABC staffer close to the situation told the Post.

The paper notes that during an appearance on "Larry King" last week, Roseanne danced around the question of joining the "The View." "I'm not looking for the job," she said at one point - and joking at another, "Well, I want $10 million, like Rosie."

Not that I watch that travesty, but Roseann would be another disaster, although not as bad as Rosie. Stupidity is running rampant!

I like Rosanne. Still watch her sit-com reruns. She IS funny. I think her IQ is at least 100 points higher than Rosie O’Donut.

Clearly a net gain in the IQ level.

The average for “The View” rises almost two points.

Maybe so.

I don’t claim to be a Roseanne expert and I’ve certainly been wrong before.

I was simply posting my observations.

I believe she deserves that much.

A couple of liberated women for our times. What wonderful examples of feminism.

The muslims think they have a solution to horniness by covering up the ladies? Heck they should just try lots of marlboro lights, mcdonalds, coors, dirty jeans and flip flops. You won’t have a dude looking at their women after they morph into Rosie Rosanna Danna.

Well, it is my considered opinion, that the FemPerv
exec that Nick at Nite hired, has *ruined* their
channels with her homosexual force feeding agenda, and one of the main weays that she did it was by turhning
both Nick at Nite Channels into the Roseanne Pig
channels. 90# Roseanne with Fresh Idiot and overplayed
Cosby as fillers...and now they want to push the
“diversity” agenda (Love everything queer) on TV Land
too! IOt’s sickening.

She was nice, pleasant, funny, and seemed well-balanced.

Her surgeon did a remarkable job. Her face is far more attractive than previously. I don't watch a lot of stand-up, so maybe I'm wrong, but I've never heard her get to crude or drop f-bombs.

For Barr to replace Swiney Rose would be like Fidel Castro replacing Hitler; The only difference in them was their language.

Roseanne would be a step up from Rosie in that Roseanne is not clinically insane.

I don’t think you’re right here, Roseanne used to go around claiming she had multiple personalities back a few years ago.

And every one of them seems to suck.

Rosanne "Mitt Romney is the devil himself" Barr?
She's a moonbat. Check out her crazy polygamy rant linked above

I'd like to redirect that.

I would think a Jewish person growing up in Salt Lake City may be slightly justified in having a harsh opinion of a Mormon Presidential Candidate.

It's not my opinion, I'm just making a logical observation.

Can you imagine how many times she might have had to explain that she was of one of the original tribes to those of a rediscovered tribe? Even the ostracism in school or the secret life of resentment alone would color one's judgment.

I have a much lesser view of Barbara Walters, since the view has exposed her more. She now comes across as being as trashy as any there.

You have to admit, "If you could be a tree, which one would you be", was not very intellectually deep. Or, flirting with Castro on national TV...

Replacing one Rosie with another isnt so bad. They could have gotten a really ugly replacement like Eleonor Clift.

SHHHHH!! Don't give them ideas! Or maybe Susan Ostrich?

Susan Ostrich is several factors better that Comrade Eleonor Clift
Susan has been known to apologize, albeit infrequently, and support her opinion with a tiny parcel of fact.

I think they should add Ann Coulter and a liberal.

It would be fun to watch Ann beat up on the liberal.

Elizabeth Hasselback looks like she’s leaving also. She just announced she’s preggers again.

Both Rosanne and Rosie are equally obnoxious and obscene. GAG!

Replacing one fat a$$ed, small brained, big-mouthed lesbian with another is more disaster for Baba’s reputation. Given Rosie’s change from “Queen of nice” as she became more unhinged you can expect the same from Roseanne, (Rosie II) once she is fitted for a reinforced chair.

I didn't mean my comment as a complement for Susan Estrich as much as to show my abject disdain and contempt for that hawked up loogie, Eleanor Clift.
