Rosie O’Donnell may be getting axed from “The View” … again.
The comedian’s “impossibly rude” attitude is bringing down the whole operation, well-placed production sources told TMZ, prompting executives to take action. The 52-year-old most likely won’t finish out the current season and another season is “out of the question.”
When O’Donnell returned to the daytime talk show this year following her tumultuous 2007 exit, she was “outraged” upon learning that moderator Whoopi Goldberg would not be dethroned from the position she’s held since 2007, the website reported.
But a rep for the show slammed TMZ’s report Monday, telling Page Six, “This is yet another in a long line of fabricated stories. Reports of Rosie leaving are false.”
“Whoopi is the moderator and has been since she was hired in 2007. Rosie O’Donnell knew that before she took the job,” the rep added.
But according to TMZ, O’Donnell is a “malcontent” who is rude to members of the cast and crew and doesn’t speak much to anyone off-camera.
