Did Ro's Rant Push Elisabeth Over Edge?

3/2/2007 7:25 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Could Elisabeth Hasselbeck be ditching "The View" after Rosie O'Donnell called her "ignorant" and slammed her right-wing stances as "abhorrent"?

Page Six
reports that Ro left E in tears after her full-frontal on-air attack, and that now, Hasselbeck is looking to leave the show. "Her days there are numbered," says a Post source. "She is looking to leave." The fracas started when Rosie trashed the Patriot Act, which Elisabeth then defended, an assertion that prompted Rosie to call her "young" and "wrong."

Rosie, on her blog, says her Hassel-slam was "ignorant" and that she hasn't forgiven herself for what she did, but that Elisabeth herself has. Rosie's rep says that the two "get along great," and show reps had no comment.

"Grey's" Heigl to ABC: Oh No You Didn't


Grey's Anatomy Gallery: Click to launch photosKatherine Heigl has cast the next stone in the public contract battle with her employer, Touchstone Television, over her future at "Grey's Anatomy." After she told People that she'd dropped out of contract negotiations, ABC hit back, saying that Heigl wasn't going anywhere anytime soon because she was under contract. Now, Heigl's just plain mad – why don't we let her explain, via a statement released by her reps: "I am embarrassed that this has become a public matter and disappointed that Touchstone felt it necessary to divulge private employment information.


" Heigl – who plays Izzie on the hit medical series – adds that despite it all, she continues "to be passionate about and committed to this character."


Angelina To Adopt Again, But Does Brad Know?


Brad Morphs gallery: Click to launch photosFour down, 189 to go. That, at least, is where Angelina Jolie is at when it comes to raising a child from each of the world's countries. Today, Vietnam's top adoption official tells the AP that Angelina has filed papers to adopt a kid from his country, via a US adoption agency. Curiously, says Vu Duc Long, Jolie applied to adopt as a single parent. She and Brad Pitt, of course, already have Maddox, Zahara, and Shiloh, representing Cambodia, Ethiopia, and the United States, respectively. No word on whether adoption officials in Luxembourg have been contacted.


TomKat Gallery: Click to launch photosParty Favors: TomKat in John Lennon's Old Building? ... Pam Anderson Returns to TV ... "Idol" Vixen Antonella Barba Makes Cut


TomKat and Yoko Ono, sharing spatulas and bickering over bikes in the hallway? It could happen -- a report on Gawker.com yesterday suggested that the couple were getting a $20 million pad in the Dakota, the New York building on Central Park West where John Lennon was shot. According to a Cruise rep, cited by Rush & Molloy, the rumor isn't true – as far as "we are aware of." ... Pam Anderson will be returning to the boob tube as the star of what Page Six calls a "fantasy-based drama that takes place at a Malibu beach club." Wait – this is a TV show? ... Despite a rendition of "Because You Loved Me" (yes, that Diane Warren-Celine Dion song) that caused faint aural bleeding, saucy "American Idol" contestant Antonella Barba made the cut into the show's final 16 last night.

I no longer watch The View because of the conatant ranting and raving between Joy, Rosie, and Elizabeth. The poor "guests" sit and look mortified and my word, what Barbara Walters must feel like...it's a mess, not fun to watch and has become a one on one personal politics program. NOT FUN! A mess actually.

There's nothing to read into. I'm sure it's easier for her to adopt as a single parent and then have Brad adopt the child too once she is back in the states. Less complicated that way.

I find it somewhat disturbing continuing to read stories about all these celebrities adopting children from every country EXCEPT the USA. A report was released this week stating that there are over 3/4 of a MILLION homeless persons here in our country, and there are plenty of children here who need our help and a home. Although I feel for orphaned children all over the world, I feel strongly that we do something for those in our own country first. Americans need to solve the problems of America first.

The adulterer filed to adopt as a single parent because, like it or not, that's what she is. She isn't married. And it is easier, when unmarried, for only one of the parties to go through the adoption process.

Maybe Brad might want to look at the law and see what's happening when the partners split, and only one has legally adopted.

Hey Rosie O'Donnell: The show is called "The View" NOT "Rosie's View Only"! If she doesn't agree with what anyone else has to say on the panel - they are wrong or "ignorant". What a pain in the A** she is. I think people just tune in to see what problem she is going to cause each day. I don't even bother with the show anymore. Rosie O'Donnell has ruined it, the producers know it -- and there's nothing they can do about it until Rosie's contract is up.

Cari is right.

I've adopted internationally. The likely reason Angelina has to file as a solo parent is because she and Brad aren't married (and have said they have no plans to be so).

Not only might the orphanage restrict adoption to married couples or singles (and may prohibit single men from doing so), but also it would be harder--if not impossible--to file jointly for a US visa for the child with them being unmarried. And without the visa, you can't bring the child here. Angelina had to endure visa issues with Maddox, which delayed their ability to come home, so I'm sure she is wanting the most straightforward paperwork processing possible.

So there is no "there" there. I'm sure Brad will particpate in the re-adoption on this end.

Antanella Barba can not sing. And should never have made it this far. Who cares about the pictures, and how cute she is, this a contest based on singing ability, and . . . she doesn't have it.

Soon the Dakota will have a big flashing SCIENTOLOGY SIGN on it!

Elisabeth is 30 but she has the mentality of a very young sheltered girl! She does come off very ignorant at times! They should have left her on survivor island!!!

Elisabeth stands for what? when put on the spot she puppets the same retoric! She cant admit mistakes were made... If you are going to open your mouth at least have your OWN thoughts and beliefs instead of what some of the media feeds you!
Rosie needs to control her loud passion... It seems that Rosie likes to strongly voice her oppinions BUT at least she has her OWN oppinions!!
