If You Can't Take the Heat, Get Out of the Kitchen
Bye, bye Rosie! Apparently, she got tired of working with people who disagreed with her. Thank goodness and thank you Ms. Hasselbeck for not backing down!

Rosie O'Donnell has fought her last fight at `The View.' ABC said Friday she won't be back on the show following her angry confrontation with co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck on Wednesday.
O'Donnell asked for, and received, an early exit from her contract. She was due to leave "The View" in mid-June.
"Rosie contributed to one of our most exciting and successful years at `The View,'" show creator Barbara Walters said. "I am most appreciative. Our close and affectionate relationship will not change."
In a statement, O'Donnell said she was grateful. "It's been an amazing year and I love all three women."
Presumably, that includes Hasselbeck. The two exchanged bitter words on Wednesday over O'Donnell's opposition to the war in Iraq. They've frequently had snippy political exchanges during O'Donnell's year on the daytime chatfest, but never as long and loud as that one.
