True Rosie O'Donnell Quits The View Rosie quits The View. No not Rosie Perez -- Rosie O'Donnell. ABC made the news official late Friday. “Rosie is an immensely talented star who comes in each and every morning brimming with ideas, excitement and passion for the show,” ABC News said in a statement to RumorFix. “When she told us that she wanted to exit The View, we respected and understood her desire to put her well-being and her family first. We’re delighted she’s still part of the ABC family with upcoming guest appearances on The Fosters. And we know she’ll return to The View often with her unique point of view and updates on her work and her family.” And Rosie's personal rep Cindi Berger explains to RumorFix the reason for the sudden departure,“Rosie and her wife Michelle split in November,” Berger said in a statement tonight. “Rosie has teens and an infant at home that need her attention. … She is putting her personal health and family first. ABC has been wonderfully understanding and supportive of her personal decision to leave The View. Next week will be her last." This is the second time that Rosie has left the morning talk show. She originally joined The View in September 2006 and quit a year later after on-air clashes with Elisabeth Hasselbeck.
