Ladies of 'The View' fire back at Rosie O’Donnell

Rosie_2 The ever-controversial Rosie O’Donnell made headlines again yesterday, when she told reporters that "The View" co-host Barbara Walters, “wanted everyone to believe and think and act as if [the women on ‘The View’] get along and are really good friends and happy and hang out together, and, you know, that’s just not the reality.

“I’m not saying they loathe each other, but the fact of the matter is, there was not a lot of camaraderie off camera.”

In response to O’Donnell’s allegations, Walters had some very pointed words on “The View” today.

Walters_2_2 “We’re very proud of some of our alumna,” mused Walters. “Meredith Viera, who, ya know, has gone on and has this wonderful job, and Lisa Ling. We take delight in people who have gone on.” 

“But there are some people who have done this show and then for years feel like they have to dump on it maybe for their own publicity,” continued Walters. “And that not only hurts me, but I resent it, so if the shoe fits, lady, get on, ladies, get on with your lives. We are not perfect, we are not always happy, but we’re pretty good.”

Joy Behar also appeared miffed adding, “We’re kind of like a semi-dysfunctional family. There’s no reason to go overboard about how we don’t get along. We do get along pretty well. Considering that we’re working together for so many years.”

then chimed in, saying, “To do what we do every day, it takes a certain amount of respect I think across the table. We’ve had incredible years."

"Maybe one more difficult than others in the past," Hasselbeck added suggestively, and to uproarious applause. "Just, that’s all I’m saying.”

The women of "The View" may not agree on much, but they all seemed to agree that O’Donnell’s assertion was way out of line.

As the ladies vented, a supervisor told Walters -- through her earpiece -- to "get on with it." “You’ve been here 12 years, Dusty,” Walters exclaimed to the supervisor. “I’m sick of you saying, ‘get on with it!’ ”

Barbra Walters you suck !!!


Barbara, for you to inform your viewers: “But there are some people who have done this show and then for years feel like they have to dump on it maybe for their own publicity,” continued Walters. “And that not only hurts me, but I resent it, so if the shoe fits, lady, get on, ladies, get on with your lives. We are not perfect, we are not always happy, but we’re pretty good.” Barbara you should think before speaking and take your own advice. Elisabeth how you have the audacity to say anything is unbelievable you had a problem with Rosie and in the last 12-months, you have had a problem with Joy and Whoopi. You told one of the networks you were unhappy with the women of The View and were thinking about leaving. There are an incredible number of web sites full of individuals who find you arrogant, obtuse, aggressive, and angry and one of the most simple-minded people on television. Perhaps, you should look a mirror before you start criticizing others. Come on ABC it is time to liberate The View it is well past its expiration date and put something of interest in it place.

Like the ladies on the show said, they don't always agree and so it's just like being at our jobs everyday. You are just not always going to agree or get along and now a days can have very different view points on many subjects. So, it's time for Rosie to move on!
