Rosie Vlogs About View Exit

Love her or loathe her, has there ever been a celebrity more new media savvy than Rosie O’Donnell? After an intellectual showdown with Elisabeth Hasselbeck on the View left Barbara Walters to calm the insatiable studio audience down (“There is peace in the kingdom“) Rosie put her beat poetry blog-leanings to video, Web-cam style, to explain why she won’t be coming back to the View:

“I was really just like the foster kid for a year. I came and we considered adoption, but I really didn’t fit into the family, and then it was time for the foster kid to go back home.”

The result: an intimate talk (and bandana and beer) implausibly hard to ignore.
