This is a sad day. Rosie was the only reason I watched the View. I applaud her courage for speaking out for what she believes in. I wish there were more strong female voices in the world. She will be missed!

Bye bye and good riddance. Barbara Walters lost all her credibility as a respectable t.v. journalist when she brought Rosie O. aboard. Elizabeth didn't do anything to get fired. Rosie was a time bomb just waiting to happen. Everyone has the right to their opinion, but Rosie always having something to say about everything just got too in your face. That saying, the View itself should be retired from the airwaves. It's an annoying program.

AND I HAVE TO ADD..THE REASON ROSIE O'FATSO PICKED ON ELIZABETH IS BECAUSE ELIZABETH REPRESENTS EVERYTHING THAT ROSIE WILL NEVER BE..SHE'S A RESENTFUL, BITTER "BULLY" TO QUOTE DONALD TRUMP. GOOD-BYE JABBA THE ROSIE! BARBERA YOUR CREDIBLITY HAVE BEEN SEVERLY COMPROMISED SINCE YOU LET HER WEIGH THE S.S.VIEW DOWN.

This is a good thing for Rosie in the long run. Bad thing for Elizabeth. Rosie will survive this just fine and her new book will be a bestseller. Maybe EH can get on the All-Star Survivor show? But, this is the best part - because of Rosie, Americans across the country are questioning this corrupt administration led by Bush and Cheney! A job well done, Rosie! For that, the country should be grateful. I know that I am.

Im sorry to see Ro gone, I wont be watching the View any longer. The only reason I watched in the first place was her! I am a Christian and a Republican, and STILL dont agree with Elizabeth. I was a staunch supporter of Bush too at one time. Its time to become educated, we have children dying because of a wrong call. All the others who call Rosie names? Get a life, move on, stop acting like grade school children and calling names. How immature. It goes the same for calling Elizabeth names, GROW UP this isnt 3rd grade.

Rosie will take the summer off and return later this year with another show.

She'll make $40 million a year and you'll still be posting about how much you hate her. She'll pay her poolman more than your house it worth. You'll be stitting at the keyboard with your d**K in your hand venting on a message board...

Sick of Rosie    

It's about time...I can't understand why she lasted this long with the way she shoves her views and lifestyle down other's throats and then blames them for her outbursts. Rosie is the cause of her downfall, not republicans, not Donald Trump, not Elisabeth, not Kelly Rippa, not straight people, not the mailman.....should I go on?
