Rosie O’Donnell’s made her surprising exit from the show less than a week after announcing that she would be ending her second stint on The View. She said goodbye on Thursday’s episode in a segment shy of 40-seconds long.
Rosie O’Donnell has ended her second stint on The View, her goodbye about as short as her tenure.
Holding her toddler daughter, O’Donnell made her exit Thursday in a segment that lasted barely 40 seconds. She thanked the show’s creator, Barbara Walters, and promised to bring her glue gun back someday for a crafting segment.
She had returned to The View in September, part of a revamp aimed at stopping a ratings slide, joining Whoopi Goldberg, Rosie Perez and Nicolle Wallace on the panel. It hasn’t gone as well as ABC planned, with the CBS knockoff The Talk getting closer in the ratings.
