Rosie will get View of Jessica Simpson

The View will be unlike any you have seen before.

Jessica Simpson is the first celebrity lined up to be interviewed by new cohost Rosie O'Donnell on daytime talk show The View. People reports that Simpson feels she owes Rosie because O'Donnell helped promote Simpson early in her career.

O'Donnell booked Simpson on the comedian's highly rated daytime talker The Rosie O'Donnell Show when the singer was just starting out in her career. Now, Simpson wants to give Rosie a boost in her new job as View host, so she will appear on the show September 5, the day Rosie debuts.

O'Donnell and former View cohost Star Jones were involved in a bitter feud over Jones' weight loss. Jones says she didn't have gastric bypass surgery, but O'Donnell says Jones is lying and it's unfair to others who are overweight and should know the truth.

In her blog, O'Donnell lambasted Jones, writing, "Star jones had weight loss surgery/she had part of her stomach bypassed/that is how she lost 1/2 herself/she refuses to say this/which is her right/but we do not have to pretend/we do not know."

Jones insists that she was let go from the show to make way for O'Donnell.

"I feel like I was fired," she said at the time.

nobody cares if rosie is gay i knew she was gay before she came out i liked her then but she hates anyone who is a born again christian and that is as anti christian as anyone is antigay. I have many friends who are gay and they don't hate me or others like rosie does. She is the most angy person I have ever seen and she needs counseling to get over what ever has her so riles up inside

Rosie rocks! I am glad that she stood up to that comb-over, arrogant, nasty, misogynist Donald Trump. How dare he make a comment about Rosies girlfriend and how he can get his friends to woo her away from Rosie. This whole thing has gotten way out of hand.

Rosie O is a disgusting big mouth. Her comments about Kelly Ripa were rediculous. Can her ass.

Bring back Star Jones .. Rosie has taken over. Is this the Rosie O'Donnel show? Miss the varied comments and viewpoints. Rosie is too dominant. Loved the way each persons perspective sort of represented the various, age, race and opinions of the viewers that watched it. Atleast one of them would make a comment or see things in a perspective you could relate to. Loved the interactions of opinions. That was the "magic" of the show. Miss that alot. No longer watching.

This could be another battle of wits between unarmed opponents.

Rosie O'Donnell sounds like a bitter little school girl. If she is that unhappy with the way she looks, do something about it and stop bashing others who have. I don't care for Star, but if she saw fit to change herself, so be it.



On the other hand, her interview with Jessica Simpson won't last long as the girl has not a brain in her head.

Bring Star and Meredith back and get rid of Joy and the fifth girl.

They all suck in comparison to the other women.
