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 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…

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 ? 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.

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.

Natasha Henstridge To Play Opposite GH’s Departing Vinessa Antoine in DIGGSTOWN

More casting news from the upcoming Canadian legal drama series, Diggstown which will star General Hospital’s Vinessa Antoine (Jordan) in the central role of Marcie Diggs.

As fans know, Antoine will be exiting GH in the role of Jordan as she begins filming the CBC series.

However, Antoine is getting a co-star on her new show, in none other than Natasha Henstridge.  The actress has previously appeared in CW’s Beauty and the Beast and Secret Circle.

 

According to Deadline, in Diggstown, Natasha will play Colleen MacDonald, a single, no-nonsense, openly gay director of legal aid now headquartered in Halifax after being blacklisted by the legal community in Toronto. She hopes to one day work her way back home.

As for the premise of the new series, Diggstown is set in the gritty arena of legal aid.  It centers on Marcie Diggs (Antoine), a star lawyer who reconsiders her priorities after her beloved aunt commits suicide following a malicious prosecution. Landing at a legal aid office in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Marcie is driven by one thing – to never again allow innocent lives to be destroyed by the justice system.  The team of lawyers that Marcie works with are a curious band of do-gooders, cynics and scrappers – messy souls struggling to keep personal disappointment and demons out of their practice as they work directly in the community to find justice for their diverse clients, exploring issues of racism, poverty and gender bias.”

Antoine is the first black actress to be cast as a dramatic series lead on iconic Canadian Broadcasting Company, CBC.

So, what do you think of the premise of Diggstown?  Sounds intriguing to us! Comment below.

Now as Arturo becomes more entrenched in the Newman clan, Canela posted on his Instagram account that the CBS soap has signed him on as a contract player.

Jason expressed: “I’ve always believed that there are two types of artists. There are working ones and blessed ones. Thankfully I’ve had an incredible support system to always motivate me and help me push forward no matter how tough things got while I was working to become a better version of me so that one day I could be blessed. To every artist out there who feels discouraged because they have not booked that role or gotten that verse picked up in a track just remember that our line of work is not the easiest but if you truly love it then you know that if you continue to PUT IN THE WORK one day you will be blessed. Thank you to Mal Young, Sony, CBS & The Young and the Restless for believing in me and making me feel at home in Genoa city and blessing me with the opportunity to bring life to Arturo Rosales.
