Another lady is stepping away from ABC’s The View, this time it is Rosie O’Donnell leaving again to focus on her family.
The news was confirmed by a ABC News spokesperson and a O’Donnell’s publicist Cindi Berger of her departure.
Berger also told the New York Post that O’Donnell split with her wife, Michelle Rounds, after two years of marriage. The split reportedly happened in November of 2014. The couple adopted a daughter together, and O’Donnell has four other children.
“Rosie is an immensely talented star who comes in each and every morning brimming with ideas, excitement and passion for the show,” a spokesperson for the network said in a statement. “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.”
O’Donnell’s last show is scheduled for sometime next week.
Typically when a person decides to quit their job to pursue another career path the common thing is to inform human resources and give a two weeks notice.
Giving a two weeks notice was not the case for a local television reporter in Anchorage Alaska. The reporter, Charlo Greene decided to inform the CBS affiliate KTVA she was quitting while she was on air. She then drops the F-bomb and makes her exit off as she is seen walking out of the shot.
Greene was doing a report on efforts to legalize marijuana in Alaska before she reveals that she is over the Alaska Cannabis Club and will be putting all her efforts into getting the drug legalized.
After her report Greene goes to tell viewers, “Now everything you’ve heard is why I, the actual owner of the Alaska Cannabis Club, will be dedicating all of my energy toward fighting for freedom and fairness, which begins with legalizing marijuana here in Alaska.”
And her the line that has made this a topic of discussion, “And as for this job, well, not that I have a choice but, f–k it, I quit.”
The cameras then cut to a shocked anchor who apologizes and tries to find her words.
The station later posted to their twitter account apologizing and informing their followers of the termination of the reporter.
I wonder will she be using KTVA as previous work experience?

A little more than a month away, Barbara Walters will record her final show on The View.
Walters, whose career in broadcast started over 50 years ago,set May 16 as her last day on the daytime talk show. She will also host a two hour goodbye segment on ABC later that night.
The View first aired in August 1997, which she helped create. The original female co-hosts along with Walters were, Star Jones, Joy Behar, Meredith Vieira, and Debbie Matenopoulos.
The announcement of her retiring from being in front of the camera was made last year, so she can focus the remainder of her career behind the scene. So there are no plans for her joining another show.
Barbara Walters will be leaving behind her current co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg, Sheri Sheperd, and Jenny McCarthy.
Who do you think will be the new co-host?
