Or is it the other way around? ABC Daytime on Friday afternoon announced that Rosie O'Donnell has led "Hot Topics" for the very last time. In a statement today, ABC president Brian Frons says, "We had hoped that Rosie would be with us until the end of her contract three weeks from now, but Rosie has informed us that she would like an early leave. Therefore, we part ways, thank her for her tremendous contribution to The View, and wish her well."

In her own statement, O'Donnell says, "I'm extremely grateful. It's been an amazing year and I love all three women." But not in that way.
