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!

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 »

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

Best wishes Rosie.

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 Kristina Wagner On Felicia’s Concern Over Maxie’s Emotional State

While Maxie (Kirsten Storms) knows exactly where baby Louise is, not many other people know, especially her mother, Felicia (Kristina Wagner).

Now, with Kristina Wagner back on-contract at General Hospital, it opens up more angles to play in the ongoing saga of “What happened to Maxie and Peter’s (Wes Ramsey) Baby?”

GH viewers know that Louise is “Bailey” and being taken of by Brook Lynn Quartermaine (Amanda Setton).  However, according to the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, look for Felicia to be very worried over Maxie’s attitude toward finding her baby.

Wagner shared to SOD on Felicia: “She is absolutely concerned about Maxie. Why is she behaving this way? Is she traumatized to a point where she is not frantically looking for her baby?”

The actress goes on to say about her alter-ego: “Felicia thinks ‘What is wrong with you?  Your baby’s missing. Why are you not (falling apart)?’ And Maxie says, ‘I have to stay calm for my other children.’  She has a way of justifying it, but Felicia is questioning Maxie’s behavior.”

Look for Felicia to be more determined than ever to help find Maxie’s baby, which we know could spell trouble for everyone!

So, do you hope Felicia learns the truth about Louise, and helps Maxie with her cover-up? Or do you hope Felicia helps get the little one back in Maxie’s arms sooner than later? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

Remembering One Life to Live on the 10th Anniversary of its Final Episode on ABC

Today marks the 10th anniversary of the final broadcast of ABC’s One Life to Live. The beloved soap opera was canceled back in April of 2011 along with All My Children, and continued to air till January 13, 2012.

As the story goes, after some false starts, the show wound up in the hands of Prospect Park in an attempted online reboot of the series which lasted some 40 plus episodes, and one season on Hulu in 2013.

Agnes Nixon’s brainchild first took to the airwaves back on July 15, 1968 on ABC, and tackled many of the social issues of our time, delivered unforgettable performances, beloved soap on-screen couples, and often humorous and edgy storylines.

When the soap was initially canceled by ABC, we took to our former site to share our thoughts in the piece here back in 2011.

At the end of its 43-year-run it was then EP Frank Valentini and head writer Ron Carlivati who took the show to third place in the ratings among six soaps, and delivered a one-two punch of heart, humor, and drama to close out the ABC run of  One Life. (We have posted the final episode below).

Through the years the actors who graced the screen were ,and are, some of the all-time great actresses including: Erika Slezak, Robin Strasser, Judith Light, Jessica Tuck, Susan Haskell, and so many more.

It also brought us the talented actors including: Al Freeman Jr., Roger Howarth, Trevor St. John, Gerald Anthony, Michael Zaslow, Robert S. Woods, Ryan Phillippe, Nathan Fillion, and the list goes on.

Below, rewatch the final episode, and the extremely well-crafted and delivered speech given by the character of Viki on the penultimate episode, how soap operas touch so many lives a la “Fraternity Row” (But, as we all know, the show was speaking directly to the longtime viewers at home about their cancellation!)

Those videos are followed two emotional interviews we conducted on the final press day of ABC’s One Life to Live with Kassie DePaiva and Kristen Alderson, then Hillary B. Smith and Robert S. Woods that we are reposting here.

Now, share your thoughts and remembrances of when you watched the final episodes of One Life to Live, and how you still miss it to this day via the comment section.
