Is Rosie Ready to Ditch "The View" -- Right Now?

5/23/2007 7:26 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Did Rosie O'Donnell and Elisabeth Hasselbeck's ballistic warfare this morning push Ro over the edge -- and into an early exit from "The View?"

O'Donnell has three weeks left before she's done, but from the sound of her blog at rosie.com, even that might be too long for her to handle. "It may be time to be done," was what she wrote this afternoon, after the brutal verbal bashing she and Elisabeth smacked-down on one another, while also suggesting that it should be Elisabeth, not she, who should apologize for the dust-up.

Rosie clearly wasn't happy with producers of the show, who saw fit to split-screen the shouting match in flagrante, which made for riveting television, but unquestionably ratcheted up the rancor. "It was sickening," wrote Ro.

Rosie said she wouldn't be going to work tomorrow, but a "View" rep tells TMZ that O'Donnell scheduled the day off to celebrate partner Kelli's 40th birthday -- and that's all.

Along with Rosie O'Donnell's decision to leave "The View", I'm of the opinion that Elisabeth Hasselbeck's contract should not be renewed and/or ABC should buy-out her contract and let her be a 150% mother instead of having her children raised by a nanny. How much money do these people need? At least Rosie O'Donnell's children are being raised by her chosen partner, Kelly.

It isn't easy being a totally committed mother though extraordinarily important down the road. Many women do not have the financial option however those (with a choice) should raise and instill their (own) personal values in their offspring and not have them raised by another.

Although she would not perceive herself to be, Elisabeth Hasselbeck is basically no different from Rosie O'Donnell or (even) Donald Trump!

I LOVE ROSIE, THE PEOPLE WHO PUT HER DOWN DON'T CARE TO KNOW THE REAL TRUTH ABOUT WHAT'S GOING ON IN THE WORLD.

What is wrong with Rosie attempting to get Elisabeth to answer the question about whether she feels she thinks the troops are terrorists. It seems that Elisabeth only cares about her wonderful George Bush who is actually the terrorist. He is the one that sent our young people there to kill people and the one that will have to answer in the end. One day Elisabeth will grow up and realize that she isn't as smart as she thinks she is about everything. We are doing to Iraq what we did in Vietnam and will regret it one day. Poor poor Elisabeth, wake up and see what George Bush is doing to our country your kids will have to live in!!

Apparently producers were supposed to cut Liz's mic thus enabling Rosie to lambast her unimpeded, since clearly the only person allowed to have and defend an opinion is Rosie. Liz treated Rosie to the same treatment she has meted out all season. And her response...to whiiiiiiiiiiiiiine about it.

She is the poster child for hypocrisy.

Kelli isn't her "partner", she's her wife. She always refers to her as her wife. They were married in San Francisco in 2004. It's not their fault this country is too bigoted to acknowledge their marriage as legal.

Elisabeth is a talking head for the G.O.P. and Fox. Elisabeth needs to stop watching Fox news ..... she is losing her mind. Rosie has more smarts in her baby finger than that bimbo, Elisabeth, will learn in a lifetime of watching Fox. Here's hoping Elisabeth joins Fox after she has the baby.

Rosie is a great person. She is not afaid of speaking her mind. America's freedoms have always come at a cost.......... So many have given up their lives so all of us could live free... I live in a place where I think so many have forgotten that.......They think if things do not directly affect them, then they would rather not deal with it...........But the war does directly affect us all...........If we do not defend our homes, families, and liberties, it will be taken away from us..............There is no doubt about that..............I'm grateful to have a government that is brave enough to fight for us.............I pray we always have that..............

You guys are sick of Rosie, I am sick of that stern skinny blonde BITCH of Elisabeth being part of the View. I cannot stand her politics and her weepy voice. She is a stiff ass overly stringent republican who FORCES her beliefs on everyone. Elisabeth is like a dog. If anyone disagrees with her, she's ready to fight. I don't think she belongs on TV. I think she belongs in women's boxing.

PLEASE GET RID OF ELISABETH. She gets away with arguing because she's attractive, blonde and skinny whereas Rosie who tells it like it is can't get away from it. I really hate the show now more because of ELISABETH. GO HAVE YOUR BABY AND STAY HOME.

"Elisabeth is trying to get her name in the press by going on the attack in major way....she wants to raise her profile to get a gig at fox!"

Yea, becuase everyone wants to leave a top-rated network show for a cable news network. Makes complete sence.
