What An Oddly Delicious Choice

Rosie O'Donnell will be replacing Meredith Viera on The View.
Huh?
I guess RuPaul, Sandra Bernhardt and Lea DeLaria had other commitments.
I like Rosie okay, I just don't see her fitting in with Star Jones or Elizabeth from Survivor.
She so much bigger than they are, personality-wise.
Besides, isn't ABC worried that hiring an openly gay, mouthy broad like Rosie will draw fire from the pseudo-Christian, intolerant right?
This may be a sign that the big money people at ABC are fed-up with pandering to the Jesus freaks.
Good.
In your face, Bible thumpers!

I am a Rosie fan, I can't wait to see how she stirs up that show's viewers. It will definitely be more interesting.

Ha! I came to your site specifically to see what you'd have to say about this. I think it's great news for Rosie fans and for The View. I say throw the others in a pit for a mudwrestle, and whoever wins can co-host with her.

Why does Blogger torture me so? It doesn't list me as jadedju, but as jade. Who the hell is jade?

-jadedju (jill)

I think Rosie is great. She is a great friend of children everywhere, and does so much good. I like it that she is opinionated.

dusty said...

Rosie and that loud mouthed bronx broad..should be interesting..three cheers for Rosie!

Jill, when we see jade, we think jaded jew.
You *own* that name and all variations of it, damn it.

BigSis said...

Yeah, ABC has given the Jesus freaks a good swift kick in their right wing nuts.

Good for Rosie for taking it on. She's more of a mother than any straight woman they could ever have on the show.

Karen Zipdrive said...

She's got titanium balls, that's for sure. And after watching her HBO special of the gay family cruise, I can say she really is a dedicated wife and mother.
She's gonna flip The View on it's ear. Good.

I'm all for Rosie shaking up "The View!" Knowing what we know now, I can't wait for her to talk about Tom Cruise like she used to on her own show. Remember how she used to fawn all over him? *Big Giggle*

Karen Zipdrive said...

Yeah, I remember that bullshit. It caused me to stop watching her show.
It's like me claiming to have an affair with Mr. Big Blog Aravosis after meeting him at an orchid show.

It's pretty bad when your Mom's gaydar is more fine-tuned than your own isn't it?!
She used to watch Rosie's show all the time and I was visiting her once when Rosie had Tom Cruise on and my Mom was giggling and snickering. I looked at her like "what do you know that I don't?" Well apparently, she'd figured it out long before the thought ever crossed my mind.

"an affair with Mr. BBA! *GASP* :D

dusty said...

Good God KZ..I would pick someone at least decent looking.. peteykins is kinda cute..but Aravosis? Gag me with one of his orchids.

John used to be a great blogger with useful links to other great sources.
At some point, he annoited himself an online Superstar and he's been insufferable ever since.
All that site does now is either lift from other sites and add a graf or two to describe the link, or feature a long post about John's personal quarrels with someone or something.
Oh, and beg for money.
P'tooie!

If anyone hears that Rosie is going to talk about post partem depression let me in on it. I'm dying to know what she thinks of Tom's insane comments on the matter. Just because Tom Cruise has female genitalia doesn't give him the right to tell women they can't take medication for their depression.

Karen Zipdrive said...

Rosie's wife Kelly would have to discuss the postpartum depression- Rosie didn't birth none of them babies.
