It would be interesting to see how Rosie & Whoopi could interact.

The show used to be enjoyable when Rosie was on and too bad dumb Elizabeth won’t be around Log in to Reply blake3b January 28, 2014 Cool, I hope Rosie comes back for good now. With Barbara leaving this would work. And lord knows they need the ratings and Rosie would bring it! Log in to Reply kbirdusa January 28, 2014 Fat and stupid is no way to go through life.
