Rosie keeps on rollin' after 'The View'



Tbdrosie061907 We really haven’t been on Rosie O’Donnell watched since she stormed out of The View, but People says she’s alive and well on tour with Cyndi Lauper. The 45-year-old comedienne played drums for the singer and yakked with the crowd at a recent show, giving her point of View to the audience.

“I got to tell you, I’ve been hanging around with those heteros for a full year and it’s not fun,” she said. “Turn around one minute and they’ll stab you in the back with a high heel. They will.”

Of course, her heterosexual former co-hosts are kind of glad she’s gone, as Barbara Walters told Ryan Seacrest last week: “There are some things that we were able to discuss that we weren’t able to discuss with Rosie, like heterosexual sex. Because, you know, Rosie’s lifestyle is different, being an open lesbian ...We are perhaps not quite as political [or] vocal about [things], but the Hot Topics have been very fun, and the ratings are up, so we’re quite happy.” Snap!

But the scary thought is the possibility that Rosie could take over The Price is Right, a possibility Bob Barker breached last week. “I believe they’re going to have a meeting with Rosie,” Barker said at the Daytime Emmy Awards. “She knows the show. There’s no doubt in my mind she could do the show.”

And what’s worse, she confirms she’s meeting with the producers! Maybe we can remind them that even with all the fuss at The View, they still lost to Ellen DeGeneres at those Emmys.
