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.

Rosie go away !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! dont want to hear her USA bashing for 3 more weeks, and she DID make statements that sounded like she was calling our soldiers "terrorists" .....and what about her other mind blowing theory, "the sept 11th theory by Rosie"....if u have such LOW regards for our country and our leaders then leave America and go live with the "poor, misunderstood people of Iraq" we have enough problems in this country without a so called celebrity shooting off her mouth and trying to make everyone turn on our leaders and soldiers....support the country or get out. and PLEASE, dont start another talk show.....you've talked enough the past year..

Ro IS A BIG FAT BULLY WHO CAN"T LEARN FROM HER SENSELESS OUTBURSTS. SHE IS SO OBSTINATE AS A LOG WOOD! I WONDER HOW THE VIEW HAS AFFORDED TO MAINTAIN SUCH A useless, VEXING NICOMPOMP. SHE IS SUCH A POCUPINE THAT SEEM TO HAVE A CHIP ON HER SHOULDER. SHE WALKS INTO EVERY SITUATION EXSPECTING TO BE OFFENDED. SHE IS ALWAYS DETERMINED TO FIND FAULT WITH ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING GOING AROUND HER. TRYING TO GET CLOSE TO RO, IS LIKE TRYING TO HUG A PORCUPINE.

Rosie Odonell should join up with Osama Bin Laden. She can go live in his cave and together they can badmouth Bush and Trump. At least he may be interested in what she says. They would have alot in common. What a useless way overpaid, overweight big mouth.

Sadly, Rosie was like a bull in a china shop from the get go on The View. She's too big - what I mean is, her personality, public image, philanthropy, professional accomplishments, awards. Other than Barbara Walters, no one on the panel can compare to Rosie.

Her decision to leave was a smart one for her and I wish her good luck - personally and professionally - and healthy, successful, happy times in whatever she decides to do in the future.

Hope Rosie, Kelli and family enjoy Kelli's 40th birthday. My sweetie George wrote this to me in a birthday card on my 40th - I've read it everyday since..."Grow old along with me. The best is yet to be, the last of life for which the first was made." (Shaw)

Peace Be With You.....

Whatever, the Bush is still at 28% approval rating and falling. Rant and whine all you want Repugs, your reign of terror is over. The Democrats have the House and Senate, and they're only going to pick up more seats in '08. Liberals are in the process of putting you yahoos back in your place. They'll even help you get fair wages at the factory, so that if you save up a few decades, you'll be able to afford a nice double-wide to retire in. Republicans just want to ship your jobs to India, and yet it's liberals you hate, because you're too damn stupid to vote in your own self-interest. It's more important to bash the gays, then put food on your own table. Redneck morons.

poor poor rosie, always the victim!...always mis-understood...stop saying such stupid stuff!how good of a friend was she to elizabeth when she ask if she could hold two thoughts at once and posts comments to her blog that are hateful to elizabeth?....also, how can she have post-traumatic stress from columbine if she wasn't there?...she saw it on the news?...who else has gotten PTSD from the news?...if she is on anti-depressants, she shouldn't be drinking as much as she says she does either!

I truly dislike Rosie. I used to like her but now she is just coming across as a bully. It makes me mad at "the View" for putting up with her and encouraging it. In fact I am not sure if I'll watch the show after rosie is gone. Due to how they have encouraged this Rosie problem

I think the feud on The View today between Rosie & Elisabeth made for stellar television- however you might feel about Rosie or Elisabeth- all who watched were glued to that split screen... and at the end of the day, that is what sells... good television.

As for the content of the argument- I am at a loss in defending an administration that has taken this country to war without valid reason- who took a country, who 6 years ago- when they came to office, had a surplus of money and world respect- when gas prices made sense- before the horrific attack of 911- ALL of which have happened- however it is spinned... under THIS/CURRENT administration's watch.

My question to Elisabeth... how do you defend that?

Rosie gets into an argument with Donald Trump. Then Rosie gets mad at Barbara for not backing her quickly enough. Rosie insinuates that American Troops are terrorists and then expects everyone on the VIEW to support her. Then gets mad when they don't support or correct her. Rosie is a bully and Elizabeth FINALLY stood up to the loud mouth. Rosie don't let the door hit you in the arse on the way out but then again it is such a BIG target.
