Andy asked her if she was surprised when Rosie O’Donnell abruptly quit ‘The View’ last winter.
This not the first time she’s left. She’s left before. She’s like the Sarah Palin of television. She quits in the middle of her job! But you know, she’s so rich, and she’s the first person to tell you, she don’t care.”
As you can see, Joy didn’t hold back- LOL.
Joy admitted that she had doubts about Rosie returning to ‘The View.’
I know what a strong personality she has. I know what a strong personality Whoopi Goldberg has. I know what the producers were thinking, and I didn’t think it would work out, and it didn’t.”
I know Rosie said she was leaving due to stress: she had stress at home (her marriage to Michelle Rounds was ending) as well as stress on the job, and she could at least get rid of the stress from work by leaving ‘The View.’ Stress is especially tough for her since she had a heart attack. However, I always wondered if behind-the-scenes friction with Whoopi Goldberg might be part of the work stress. Whoopi isn’t the type to back down or be cowed. I think Joy gave us a little hint ;).
