Rosie O’Donnell Heading Back to TV!

HBO Documentary Screening Of  A Mother's Courage

It’s True Rosie O’Donnell will be heading back to daytime television. Expect to see Rosie back in 2011 just in time as Oprah departs. Rosie has always been a little harsh for my taste…are you happy for Rosie to be back on TV?

Calling the format of her new show, “laughter and love in the afternoon,” O’Donnell said that the program will be “a single topic, hour-long show about life, love and laughter.” She said there will be “no desk” and “no celebs promoting movies,” but that there “may be a few giveaways.”

“It’s gonna be a lot different because I’m a lot older, you know. It’ll be a dozen years since leaving my own show when we go back on the air and I’ve grown a lot and I think that it’s time,” O’Donnell said.

Explaining why the time is right to return, she said, “A lot of companies have asked in the few years that I’ve been gone, since 2002. … Now all my kids are in school and I’ve got my days free, and with Oprah leaving there’s a huge void in daytime.”

I don’t like that Rosie went to this premiere wearing something you might go buy a burger in…at the drive thru. She didn’t need to wear a gown…but jeez!
