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.

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… Read more »

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.

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.

“…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 ?… Read more »

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.

GH’s Josh Swickard Stars in HBO Max Film ‘A Hollywood Christmas’

Circle Thursday, December 1st! That’s when you can see General Hospital’s Josh Swickard (Chase) in yet another holiday film.  This time, Swickard stars alongside Jessika Van in A H0llywood Christmas streaming on HBO Max.

In story, A Hollywood Christmas follows Jessica, a successful Christmas movie director, who begins living her own real-life Christmas movie when a handsome television executive named Christopher (played by Swickard), shows up on the set.

Sent by the network to decide if producing Christmas movies are worth the expense, Christopher’s presence threatens to halt production on Jessica’s latest film. With Christopher looking over her shoulder on behalf of the network, Jessica now has to juggle: actors on the set falling in and out of love, an elf dog, and her own romantic feelings for the network exec!

As many are aware, Josh stars in many holiday films, so it’s a bit of send-up about a guy who is in Christmas movies starring in a movie about the making of one.

Warner Brothers posted tune-in info on their official Instagram a few days ago, sharing, “It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas… #AHollywoodChristmas premieres in SIX Days! Spend the #HolidaysWithHBOMax.”

You can check out the trailer below.

Will you be checking out Josh in ‘A Hollywood Christmas’ starting this Thursday? Comment below.
