That is just funny.

"Jones' departure was apparently one of the conditions of Rosie O'Donnell joining the show, a condition Walters and other knew and agreed to when they were courting O'Donnell."

I say replace them all. I've only seen this show a few times but I've never gotten anything useful out of it. Just blablabla...

I watched The View a few weeks ago for the first time in years. I am not sure if the Starr Jones person is the same woman who used to be a co-host If anyone remembers the show Designing Women, Starr reminds me of how Dixie Carter became....really rude with a overblown sense of self-importance. And the Elisabeth character at the end---give me Lisa Ling any day....and that says a lot!

I don't care for The View at all...but kudos to Rosie O'Donnell for pulling this off

I have retired from administration work, so if you have a question about anything MDC-related, please contact Cynthia Mosher. Thanks!

Wow, it seems like The View may actually be worth checking out again. If for nothing but all the shake ups.

What'll Star Jones do now? I mean, here she just had her boobs done and now what?

Good riddance - I do not like Star Jones. Not one bit. I do like Rosie though, very much. I just may watch more often now.

I don't like Rosie anymore than Star. What do they only hire people who think there is something wrong with breastfeeding.

it's all to bizarre for me-the show, the mix of personalities, and rosie is not a fit at all imo. it's just a bizarre show! Much like Baba, I guess. (I think I've watched it maybe 4 times in my life and could never make it through an entire show?)

I'm sorry, but it looks to me like they need a "fat girl" in order to, um, round out the show.

Whatever. The show sucks and always has. Star or no. They need to just cancel the thing. I'm sure if Walters wasn't behind it, it would have been cancelled long ago.

That show has become a mockery anyway. I used to like it and then, it just started going downhill and the BF stance really made me hate it.

Star's departure has been slated long before Rosie signed.

I do have to admit that part of me was wishing they'd kept both Star and Rosie just to see what ensued with Star being homophobic and all. I could just imagine the two of them bickering like my kids in the backseat, "Mom, she's touching me!"

I didn't realize Star was homophobic?

I'm glad she is going, she is horrid. I like Rosie, altho I know she is an idiot about breastfeeding. I'm looking forward to seeing her. I might watch again occasionally.

I like Joy Behar too. Can't stand Elizabeth.

Elisabeth is WAY conservative politically, so it'll be interesting to see how she acts around Rosie. I won't watch though since Rosie is as oblivious about bf'ing as Star was.

Ok I like Elisabeth

Just cause she gives a younger personality, and even though she is uniformed on many topics thats just her giving the usual stereotypical point of view on things. Ok, I just re read that and it doesn't make sense but you know what I mean?

Also a fan of hers since her Survivor days...

Elizabeth disgusts me to no end, not only is she homophobic she is really conservative and a huge Bush fan. Along with her disgusting parenting practices. While I totally disagree with Rosie about Bfing and circing at least she is an advocate for fostor kids and same sex couples.

Yep. I don't care if she cut off her kids' arms, & fed them coke out of a bottle, she does not support the president, & the war, & she is such an amazing advocate for foster care & nontraditional families... I her.


*disclaimer: I was just kidding about the coke & cut off arms stuff.

Did anyone see Rosie O's cruise documentary? Ok, I'll admit it---I cried...and I'm not even a "fan" of hers. The show was so touching:

Ditto. I never watched the show very much, but I stopped completely after the breastfeeding drama. The only person left that I can even remotely tolerate is Joy. Although I have to admit that I was curious whether fights would erupt between Rosie and Starr.

Not a huge fan of Rosie anymore but the cruise show was awesome!

Lisa Ling is awesome though. She's actually doing serious news, advocating for abused and neglected children, she rocks my world!
