“I can confirm that Rosie and her wife Michelle split in November,” Rosie‘s rep told Page Six. “Rosie has teens and an infant at home that need her attention. This has been a very stressful situation. She is putting her personal health and family first. ABC has been wonderfully understanding and supportive of her personal decision to leave The View. Next week will be her last.”

    The divorce is not the reason she’s leaving The View. The View is in the most colossal ratings spiral, they all hate each other, and people are handed pink slips around there every other week. The rumor was that she wanted to take the reigns from Whoopie from day one but Whoopie wasn’t having it. This was just a matter of time. The View’s cancellation is also just a matter of time.

    I actually like The View now. Whoopi is awesome, I like Nicole and Rosie Perez is smart and sassy. Rosie O’Donnell is cool too. Why does she have to leave The View? Divorce is hardly a reason to up and leave a good paying job. The View was awful when Jenny McCarthy and Sherri Shepard were there. Those two were awful and not bright at all. Whoopi was the only saving grace at the time. But now, with these four, the show is good and back in tip top shape. I hope Rosie reconsiders and stays.

    This Woman is such a mess. And don’t bring her back “from time to time”. Just keep her off the show if she can’t even fulfill her obligations.

    She has to leave because she is unstable – she can’t hold down a job and she obviously can’t hold down a relationship.

    the view is a sinking ship and has been for years. it’s a revolving door or hosts and i can’t figure why it’s still on. it’s obvious someone had to leave. might as well be rosie. QUIT BRINGING ROSIE BACK TO SHOWS. she dooms everything.

    the thing I read in this article…“Rosie has teens and an infant at home that need her attention. This has been a very stressful situation. She is putting her personal health and family first.” … which means the ‘wife’ is not interested in the adopted child or Rosie’s teens. That’s all I have to say about it.

    I think the worse one on The View is Nicole Wallace. She reminds of Levi Johnston’s sister. All she does for her pay is Palin hate speech. She is boring and annoying.
