On Thursday, Rosie O’Donnell said her short but sweet final goodbye from ABC’s morning talker, The View!

The moment came at the end of today’s episode when O’Donnell holding her daughter said, “I just wanted to say thank you to all the cast here and the crew — and mostly to Barbara Walters, who has always looked out for me and my life and career and is an amazing woman. We had lunch yesterday and she sends her love, and I want to thank her for making this show and letting me be on it  — twice!”

In addition, O’Donnell joked and warned she’d come back to do an occasional crafting segment, and plugged her upcoming Sunday HBO comedy special. As confetti dropped from the top of the studi0, the audience chanted, “Rosie! Rosie!”

Also on the episode today was Saturday Night Live cast member, Keenan Thompson who joined the ladies to promote this weekend’s upcoming SNL 40th anniversary special.  He became the first person to interview O’Donnell on her departure and asked her, “Why are you leaving?”

Rosie replied,“I got a lot of stress, hon.  I got some home stuff going on, I got some kid stuff going on. I got to turn down the stress in some area.”  Rosie on Monday put out a YouTube video detailing that 2 years ago she had a heart attack, and needed the stress in her life reduced at this time.

Watch the final moment’s from today’s episode of The View when Rosie says goodbye again! Then, share your thoughts below!

Never watch the show – or abc – except gh.

Really don’t care…

Hmmmm. I’m sure there’s a lot going on behind the scenes at “The View” and I honestly don’t blame her for bailing. (For months, there have been reports/rumors of the new micro-management team trying to oust everyone but Nichole Wallace — sp??)

Personally, Rosie evokes alternating reactions. She seems either volatile or fragile most times, and even when she’s on her best behavior, it feels as though she’s biting her tongue and will explode at any provocation. And during her less guarded moments, she can be quite affable and clever.

However, I hope she gets her personal / family issues sorted. I hope next time, she tries dating someone for a sustained period of time before cohabitating with them or exchanging vows. (This advice applies to everyone, regardless of sexual orientation.)

In the end, I wish her well…

This show is a trainwreck… needs to be canceled!!

Why not rename this show ‘The Real Housewives Of The View’ and air it on Bravo…lol

I’VE ALWAYS LOVED ROSIE, AND STILL DO. I’M SO SORRY THAT SHE’S LEAVING AGAIN, BUT I DO UNDERSTAND THAT HER CHILDREN COMES FIRST AND SHE NEEDS TO TAKE CARE OF HERSELF. I DO HOPE THAT SHE DOESN’T MARRY ANY ONE ANY MORE, SHE’S PERFECT JUST THE WAY THAT SHE IS. I WISH HER AND HER CHILDREN LOTS OF LOVE WITH EACH OTHER AS WE LOVE ROSIE AND I DON’T CARE WHAT ANYONE THINGS. SHE’S ONE OF MY FIVE FAVORITES. GOD BLESS HER AND HER FAMILY. HOPE TO SEE HER AGAIN. MARY DITANNA PENDRAK

I wish it was goodbye to The View not just Rosie.

How many kids does she have? She must adopt one every year.

Kudos to Rosie for a much classier exit this time. Her video statement was much more mature and balanced than she seemed just a few years ago. Wish her the best with her heath and family.

PULL THE PLUG ON THIS TRAIN WRECK SHOW!!!!

“…Rosie replied,“I got a lot of stress, hon. ”

In a perfect world… who wouldn’t want her livelihood?

luxury to come and go ?

how difficult is it to do a talk show ? when all the producers of… did for… and she parlayed her mind to panel with and share current events for and with other likeminded, differing values and opportunity to showcase all people of color

Her personal life has always been in upheaval…. her marriages and relationships…

I do value her being a mother… that’s her first priority

that being said… to shut down her career ? I wouldn’t have closed that

getting out of bad relationships… and hiring a nanny … or two… staff… to help along her kids… is more than most can do in their entirety

I appreciate that she forefront LGBT first and foremost
I’m happy that her career : stand up comedian start, 1979
star search in 1984

and wallah , 1984 – 2015 : 31 years later she’s star searched with a fan base

Rosie O’Donnell, Thank You for your energies

Wow. Didn’t know about the heart attack. I hope she does better and doesn’t relapse.

Best wishes Rosie.

Why the hell did she ever say hello!

the low number of reactions to this story – shows that no one cares about this soap opera.

I’ll take OLTL and AMC anyday as a replacement.

Her ending on The View was so phoney. Not a word about leaving all week, and then only barely mentioned in the last show. Clearly, she hated being there and it had nothing to do with her health or family.

Yeah bye.

Matt Bomer Reveals After Exiting ‘Guiding Light’ He Lost the Role of ‘Superman’ Due to His Sexuality

During the June 10th edition of the Hollywood Reporter Awards Chatter Podcast, former Guiding Light star, Matt Bomer (ex-Ben Reade) revealed the role that got away, and how his exit from the CBS soap opera was precipitated to accommodate his burgeoning movie career, only to have his sexuality wind up costing him the part.

Bomer was seemingly set to play the Man of Steel, Superman, in a motion picture version in the early 2000’s, and as he tells it to Scott Feinberg during the podcast, things went awry.

“I went in on a cattle call for Superman, and then it turned into a month-long audition experience where I was auditioning again and again and again, and flying out to New York and doing chemistry reads, an flying out to LA doing chemistry reads, flying back to New York, flying back to LA to do a screen-test,” recalled Bomer. “And it looked like I was the director’s choice for the role. This is a very early iteration of Superman, written by JJ Abrams called Superman Flyby and it never came to light.”

While Matt was going through the Superman audition process he was still under contract at Guiding Light. Bomer described how he was let go from the soap: “Concurrently on Guiding Light, there was a killer in town, and so I think they needed somebody to pin it all on someone. So, I think the executive producer very kindly wanted to free me up just in case this job came through and said, ‘Hey, you’re gonna be the killer. We’re writing you off the show. Go with my blessing.’ I guess, I basically got fired, but in a generous way.”

Bomer had good reason to believe he was on his way, and the role of Superman was his after he had signed a three picture deal with Warner Brothers. As to why the part of Superman never came to pass, Bomer believes it was due to his sexuality (Later, Matt would come out publicly in 2012).

During the podcast, Matt explained, “Yeah, that’s my understanding That was a time in the industry when something like that could still really be weaponized against you. How and why and who I don’t know. But yeah, that’s my understanding.”

While Matt has not yet played Superman, he has done stellar work in major projects including: Fellow Travelers, Magic Mike, White CollarIn Time, The Normal Heart to name but a few.

What do you think of Guiding Light making Ben that killer in order to free up Bomer to leave the CBS soap to go and become a star in Hollywood and potentially play Superman, only for his sexuality to take the role away from him by the powers-that-be? Comment below.

Jason George Returning to ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Main Cast for Upcoming Season

Soap opera alum Jason George (ex-Michael Bourne, Sunset Beach) is rejoining Grey’s Anatomy as a series regular for its upcoming 21st season.

According to Deadline, Jason will reprise his signature role of Ben Warren. Previously, the actor played Ben since season 6 of the ABC medical drama. Later, George became a series regular for seasons 12-14 before departing to join the ‘Grey’s’ spinoff, Station 19.

With Station 19 now canceled, it paved the way for George to bring Ben back to Seattle Grey’s Sloan. Over the past seven years, Jason was a mainstay on the firefighter drama and would make appearances and crossover to “Grey’s’.  Both series are produced by Shondaland and ABC signature.

In story, the seventh season of Station 19 had Ben tapping leaning into his medical skills while questioning his future as a firefighter in light of his shoulder injury. Then, in the Station 19 series finale, Ben told Captain Herrera that he was going back to finish his surgical residency. The story all fits together because when Ben was a fifth year resident at Grey Sloan, he found a way to pursue his other dream as a firefighter without jeopardizing his chances to return to the hospital and medicine one day.

George was featured on NBC’s Sunset Beach from 1997-1999 as lifeguard Michael Bourne and his love interest, Vanessa was played by Sherri Saum (ex-Keri, One Life to Live) who is also the wife of the late Kamar de los Reyes (ex-Antonio, One Life to Live)

In a post on X, following the story of his rejoining Grey’s Anatomy, George posted a video with the music from “Welcome Back Kotter” and the words “Well … it WAS kind of hush-hush. But now it’s official. Where my scrubs at?”

So, glad to hear Jason George is returning as a series regular to Grey’s Anatomy? Comment below.

Bryan Craig Teases ‘Who Could It Be’ in Response to General Hospital’s Returning Mystery Man

Since General Hospital’s executive producer, Frank Valentini dropped a major bombshell of what’s to come on the long-running daytime drama at the 51st annual Daytime Emmy Awards, the guessing games have begun of just what former GH actor is returning to the cast this summer.

Speaking with ABC’s On The Red Carpet, as previously reported, Valentini shared, “A former cast member is coming back. And I think that the audience will go crazy for HIM.”

That has led to major online speculation that it could be anyone from: Jonathan Jackson (ex-Lucky), Greg Vaughn (ex-Lucky), Ted King (ex-Lorenzo Alcazar), Nicholas Chavez (ex-Spencer), and Bryan Craig (ex-Morgan) among others, that might be the gentlemen being referenced.

On Wednesday, responding to a post on the subject from Soap Opera Digest, Bryan Craig commented, “Who could it be ….”  Now, clearly he can just be having some fun with the situation to throw fans off-track, or he might be giving us a tease of what’s to come.

Before exiting GH, the actor won two Daytime Emmys for his performances as Morgan Corinthos in 2016 and 2017.  Craig appeared on GH from 2013-2016 and made a return in 2018. Since departing GH, Bryan has appeared most recently in Freeform’s Good Trouble and ABC’s Grand Hotel, plus several independent films.

The character of Morgan was killed-off the show when Olivia Jerome set a bomb that exploded in the car that Morgan got into, but was meant to kill Olivia’s brother Julian Jerome. Morgan’s death caused a huge split in the relationship of Carly and Sonny.

So, do you think Bryan Craig is just having fun with the audience, or do you think it’s possible he is the big return Frank Valentini is talking about? Comment below.
