Rosie O'Donnell Is Leaving 'The View'
The talk show host is also splitting from her wife of more than two years.
— -- Rosie O'Donnell is leaving "The View."
ABC confirmed that the talk show host, who returned to the program last fall after a seven-year hiatus, will move on after next week to focus on her family.
"Rosie is an immensely talented star who comes in each and every morning brimming with ideas, excitement and passion for the show. 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," a spokesperson for the network said in a statement. "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."
"I can confirm that Rosie and her wife Michelle split in November," she told the newspaper. "Rosie has teens and an infant at home that need her attention. This has been a very stressful situation. 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."
O'Donnell and Rounds, her second wife, adopted a baby daughter together in 2013. O'Donnell also has four older children.
