I got hooked on Rosie O'Donnell when she first appeared on Star Search.
So when she started her own talk show I was in heaven.
I loved her talk show, kind of a cross between Mike Douglas and Phil Donohue.
I was sad when she chose to step down, but then I kept up with her through her blog .
She made my day when she accepted Barbara Walters offer to go on The View.
I wasn't much of a fan of that show, kinda sick of everyone pampering Star Jones.
Stars over the top wedding turned me off and I did not watch again until Rosie showed up.
Turning on Rosie in the Morning and the hot topics made my day.
I loved her honesty, her caring for others, many times I wanted to reach in and hug her when she seemed down.
I'm sure with her announcement that she has decided to leave, the "Dump Truck" will be in his glory.
Along with everyone on Fox news and some the other tabloid news stations.
Well I'm not and I am one angry woman.
I don't think ABC forced her out, unless they tried to muzzle her and Rosie is not going to be muzzled.
They knew when they hired her she was ouitspoken and had strong opinions.
When The View topples in the ratings they will realize what they are missing.
Trump, Hannity, Scarbouro can be gleeful but they can't silence Rosie.
Her blog will continue and I will check her every day so I can catch any shows she is on.
Rosie , Stranger friend, you will be missed.
