Rosie on MSNBC: “It Turned Out To Be A Blessing”

rosie_11-20.jpgRosie O’Donnell returns to TV next Wednesday, hosting a variety show, “Rosie Live,” at 8pm on NBC. It was last November when O’Donnell was in talks with MSNBC to host a program, which ended up being “over B4 it began.”

The New York Post’s Adam Buckman reports that O’Donnell discussed the near-deal in a telephone news conference yesterday:

We had a deal and it was about to be announced and NBC changed their mind. It turned out to be a blessing, I think, because I don’t know that arguing about politics is really the best use of my talent. And I also think that Rachel Maddow is unbelievably wonderful.
