Rosie's "View" Not the Prettiest Picture

8/31/2006 1:12 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Katie Couric's not the only high-profile female TV personality with airbrush issues – Rosie O'Donnell says she's recently had the retouch treatment as well. In a new ABC promo photo for the new season of "The View," Rosie appears with her co-hosts Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Joy Behar, and Barbara Walters, and though she seems to be in relatively normal proportion to the other "View"-ers, the gab queen says she's been slimmed by the hand of Photoshop magic. "Look at the amount of white space/between my arm and body/barbara and elisabeth seem to vanish/there in my underarm," writes Rosie, giving her best forensic analysis on her blog at rosie.com



What's more, she tells Glamour magazine that she's letting her hair grow "long and luxurious" to allay concerns that her tight crop of recent years (especially the Flock of Seagulls look) might be too "gay" for the audience of "The View." Fortunately for all of us, O'Donnell promises that her locks henceforth won't be "scary."

Of course, as the photographic evidence has shown, butch doesn't have to equal "scary" – or gnarly. Halle Berry and Natalie Portman are just two of Hollywood's beauties that have made short look hot.

I am so looking forward to Rosie being on the View. It's about time to have someone articulate, funny AND outspoken about the important issues of the day. I can't wait to hear her and Elizabeth get into the issues of ther day. If anyone should be replaced it is Elizabeth. She is so far right wing it totally boggles my mind. Joy. Barbara and Rosey will be a great trio.

the "view" is going to be new and fresh and wonderful......rosie is intelligient, funny and real......give them all a chance

we need to stop judging beauty by weight or length of hair.....does not the fact that rosie gives of herself immensely of herself to many charities make her beautiful??

barbara walters would not have chosen rosie as a cohost if she didn't know it would work..................

Why is this hog even an issue? She has no business being out in public let alone being on TV.
All she is, is a big mouthed ignorant bozo that has not a clue about the real world. Go back to liberal freak dyke land, stay there and shut up!!!

I CANT BELIEVE THEY ARE BRING THAT FAT SLOB BACK ON TV. WITH ALL THE BEAUTIFUL WOMEN OUT THERE AND THAT IS WHAT THEY END UP WITH. WILL I KNOW ONE SHOW THAT WON'T BE ON MY TV. AND I HAVE HEARD FROM MANY THAT HAVE SAID THE SAME. DOOM TO THE VIEW.
EVIDENTUALLY BARBARA WALTERS NEEDED A MAN ON THE SHOW AND THAT IS WHAT THEY GOT.

Her private life is her's but the problem is that she NEVER shuts up about how gay she is. I really don't want to hear her liberal rants, her anti-gun views or how much she likes her tongue in another womans behind! Barbara Walters is an idiot for hiring her and both Star and Meredith have both trashed the show since leaving!!! All are man hating bastards with an axe to grind.

I don't know what the big deal is about her being on the show. I think they need her on the show. I think it will be a great show.

Well if star hadn't gotten so holyer than thou acting like she was on a direct link with god because of her husband maybe she would still be there. She lost that edge she had being a wild woman, that is why she lost her job,. She lost her appeal tothe real world. Rosie will bring another light into the mix and it would be great if they could get someone like Patti Labelle to be the other host. That would be a great show then. True equality and a voice from every corner.
